A Good Blog Worth Reading

Written on December 11, 2008 at 10:00 am, by Eric Cressey

Shawn Haviland is a Cressey Performance athlete who started up a blog a month or two back.  The Oakland A’s drafted Shawn out of Harvard in the 33rd round in 2008.  He actually wrote up a piece about training at CP:

5 Things I have Learned (So Far) from the Guys at Cressey Performance

Shawn started out as a janitor at M.I.T. before he solved a complex math problem left on a chalkboard – and that led to instant baseball success.  Or maybe that was Good Will Hunting

  • Since I injured my a/c joint I’ve taken a lot more care choosing exercises and learning about technique etc. I was advised to read any articles by Cressey, Hartman and Robertson and have learnt a lot from doing this. I also check out T:nation every so often.

    One thing that never gets mentioned is swimming. I’ve always been told it’s ideal for many reasons, not least as it provides an excellent cv workout and is superb for injuries (espec lower back) as it gave a workout without stressing the body. I realise it depends on stroke. Any comments on this please?

    Thank you
