Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 9/19/17

I hope you all had a good weekend. My wife and I spent a few days in Washington, DC as tourists and baseball fans, and then I gave a shoulder seminar in Virginia before we headed home on a very delayed flight last night. Let's kick of the week with some recommended reading and listening I covered on my trip. Before we get to it, though, just a ...


In Defense of the Hip Thrust

I've been a fan of barbell hip thrust and supine bridges for approximately seven years now.

Societal pressures – parents, coaches, scouts, recruiters - have dictated ...


Sports Performance: Study the Majority, and Stop Cherrypicking Exceptions to the Rule

Last week, I Tweeted out the following statistic:   22 MLB pitchers w/30+IP this year have average fastball velos of 97+mph. Only 3/22 are under 200lbs. If you're sick of throwing 77mph, EAT. — Eric Cressey (@EricCressey) August 23, 2017 As can pretty much be expected, this Tweet was met with a thumbs up from frustrated coaches an ...
