Fitness Stuff You Should Be Reading!

I will be the first to admit that I don’t know everything about the fitness industry.  I am always constantly reading and learning about the latest trends and what research is being done in this ever growing field.  I post these articles from like-minded individuals of the fitness industry who I feel not only to help us learn, but to help change the industry in the best way possible.

 

Eric Cressey (of Cressey Performance) wrote a great article a few days ago on why it is important to add speed deadlifting into your routine.  He goes on to talk about how important bar speed off the floor is, especially when you are maxing out!  A very good read.

Mike Reinold posted an article last week some Scapula Exercise Myths.  It is great for anyone who might have shoulder issues (pain, lack of mobility, etc.).  The Shoulder girdle is a very complex joint that can have a laundry list of problems.  The Scapula plays a huge part in your shoulder function, so this article is great for anyone who wants to help prevent shoulder issues.

And what would my weekly fitness post be without a Tnation article :).  Dean Somerset wrote an amazing article on the glutes that really should get all of you off your ass (pun intended) and doing some heavy deadlifts.

Hope everyone has an amazing Turkey Day!  I will be in a food coma for the next day or two, I hope to have another post up by Friday, but If not, enjoy the weekend!
