Quads Pulls, Regular Joes Getting Athletic, and Why Your Coach Might be a Schmuck

Written on December 21, 2010 at 6:28 am, by Eric Cressey

Today’s peek back to the archives brings us an interesting assortment of articles you should check out:

Quad Pulls in Baseball – Why do they happen?  And, what are they really?  This old post of mine actually gets a ton of traffic – presumably because a lot of people run into “quad pulls” quite frequently and immediately search for information on it on Google.

The Regular Guy Off-Season Program – Looking for a good four-week program to test drive?  Give this one a shot; you might just get more athletic on top of being bigger and stronger.

My Coach Says I Shouldn’t Lift – I have some fun with this one.  It’s great “ammo” for any athlete who deals with a coach who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow.

    Eric,

    Do you have any thoughts or input about girevoy sport (kettlebell sport)? I know there are a lot of people who mindlessly throw around kettlebells, but I was wondering if you have taking any time to look at the actual sport.

    Thanks Eric

    ps. My wife is going into her 4th phase of Show and Go. So far she’s lost 11 pounds (159 to 148), her FS has gone from 95 x 5 to 135 x 4, close grip bench from 80 x 5 to 115 x 3 and can now do 4 x 3 bodyweight pull ups. I’ll get you the final numbers after this phase is complete.
