The Best of 2012: Strength and Conditioning Product Reviews
Written on January 2, 2013 at 8:57 pm, by Eric Cressey
To wrap up my “Best of 2012” series, I’ll highlight the top product reviews I did at this site in the last year.
1. Deadlift Dynamite – This product was a great fit for me to review not only because I’m particularly fond of picking heavy s**t up off the floor, but because Andy Bolton and Pavel Tsatsouline packed so much practical, yet forward-thinking information into it that it was hard to not rave about it! Check out my entire review: What a 1,000-Pound Deadlift Can Teach You.
There were certainly some other great products I encountered this year, but these three reviews proved to be the most popular with my readers, based on hosting statistics.
2. High Frequency Training – I’d actually say that this was my “funnest” read among the product reviews featured here, as I’ve always enjoyed Chad Waterbury’s writing and perspective. It’ll really make you rethink your perspective on volume management in training programs – and if you’re looking for a program to kick your butt, look no further.
3. Elite Training Mentorship – It probably sounds incredibly self-serving to review my own product, but Elite Training Mentorship is a resource of which I’m tremendously proud because it isn’t just mine. Rather, it’s updated monthly with contributions from great coaches like Mike Robertson, Dave Schmitz, Tyler English, Vaughn Bethell, Steve Long, and Jared Woolever. With monthly updates – in-services, exercise demonstrations, webinars, articles, sample programs – from each of us, this is a fantastic continuing education resource that is both affordable and convenient. This isn’t so much a product review, but I think you’ll appreciate how this article demonstrates just how valuable a site like this is: 5 Reasons to Be Excited About the Future of the Fitness Industry.
There were certainly some other great products I encountered this year, but these three proved to be the most popular with my readers, based on hosting statistics. Hopefully, there will be plenty more to come in 2013!
