Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 10/3/12

About the Author: Eric Cressey

Here’s this week’s list of recommended strength and conditioning reading:

4 Things That Will Kill You Way Before Cholesterol – This was an excellent post by Dr. Jonny Bowden. As an interesting aside, he references the book Blue Zones (about the longest living folks in the world) in this post.  I actually got to spend an entire day with the author, Dan Buettner (of National Geographic), in Costa Rica.  Purely by coincidence, my wife and I were on the same snorkeling trip as his family while we were on our honeymoon. It was fascinating to chat with him (he’d been on “Oprah” the week before, so I joked that hanging me was obviously the next step in career advancement!).

Outmuscling Major Depression with Creatine – Here’s a cool Science Daily report on recent research that shows creatine may have merit in combating depression.  It’s nice to see that people are realizing that creatine isn’t just safe, but actually has far more benefits than we previously thought.

Why President Obama Throws Like a Girl – I just realized that with the upcoming election, there’s an outside chance that I might not be able to refer back to this old post because we might have a new president.  So, I figure I ought to milk it for all it’s worth now.
