About the Author: Eric Cressey

First off, on Veterans Day, a big thank you goes out to all our readers who either have served or are serving in the military.  We appreciate all that you do and have done!

With that said, here are a few recommended reads for the week:

7 Fat Loss Essentials – This is a free webinar from Dr. Mike Roussell that I thought was extremely well done.  I’ve always enjoyed Mike’s nutrition stuff, and it’s awesome to see him kicking out great content on a regular basis now that he’s done with his PhD.

Inverted Row Ignorance – I saw an ugly inverted row video online this week, and it reminded me of this post I wrote back in 2009.  Everything I said still holds true, though!

Don’t Forget the S-C Joint – Patrick Ward posted this great blog on the impact of the sternoclavicular joint on upper extremity function.  It’s a bit more “geeky” and largely aimed toward manual therapists, but there are still some valuable lessons to learn for all of us.  I can tell you that nine out of ten times, right-handed pitchers are going to be very fibrotic in the subclavius area – just lateral to the S-C joint.  Attending to this one region can yield big payoffs in terms of upper extremity movement.
