Written on April 6, 2012 at 7:01 am, by Eric Cressey

Here’s a list of recommended strength and conditioning resources for the week:

Elite Training Mentorship – This continuing education resource we introduced last month has started off with a bang, as we’ve gotten a lot of great feedback.  It’ll update twice per month, and the first happened yesterday.  Content came from Dave Schmitz (two in-services and two exercise demonstrations) and me (two in-services and two exercise demonstrations).  My in-services this month were “Understanding and Managing Congenital Laxity” and “Understanding the Hip Adductors.”  Updates from Mike Robertson and BJ Gaddour will come later this month.  Click here for more information.

9 Strategies to Train Around Lower Body Pain – Speaking of Mike Robertson, this is a great article he had published at T-Nation this week.

Pressing Considerations for the Older Lifter – This was a super-detailed post from Jim “Smitty” Smith on what the seasoned veteran of strength training programs needs to keep in mind when doing a lot of pressing.
