Here’s this week’s list of recommended strength and conditioning reading:
The 4-Hour Chef – Tim Ferriss’ book is now available, and it looks to be fantastic. My wife and I actually had dinner with Tim in San Francisco back in February when he was immersed in the writing process. We talked at length about how the scope of the book had grown incredibly from a cookbook only all the way up to becoming a book of lessons on how to learn and become highly proficient on any task – with cooking as a medium through which to do so.
I’m actually buying a few copies of this as Christmas presents, including one for my mother, who is a high school principal with a big interest in finding innovative ways to get kids excited about learning – and learning faster. As a bonus, she likes to cook and eat healthy: win/win!
The Virtual Squat Seminar – This was a great post from Jim Wendler over at T-Nation. He covered a lot of what you need to know in order to squat safely and effectively.
All the Hype Behind Kipping Pull-ups – My good friend and business partner, Tony Gentilcore, goes into “dangerous territory” by covering the kipping pull-up, but actually presents a very “neutral” argument that I think anyone can appreciate, regardless of how they feel about Crossfit.
