Happy Valentine’s Day Week! While I love all my readers and appreciate your support, I won’t get all sappy on you today. Instead, our recommended strength and conditioning reading will focus on getting jacked and crushing good food. What’s not to love?
Strength Training Program: What to Do If You Can’t Squat Deep – This was a guest blog I wrote over at Men’s Health earlier this week. If you don’t have the mobility to squat deep, don’t worry; I’ll give you some alternatives to ensure that your lower body strength training doesn’t suffer.
