Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 2/26/13

Written on February 26, 2013 at 9:01 am, by Eric Cressey

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

What’s in a Toe Touch? – This outstanding article from Gray Cook and Don Reagan serves as an awesome adjunct to my static stretching post from two weeks ago, as I talked about some of the ways to “cheat” a toe touch.

Ultimate Speed Drills – I think Jim Kielbaso is one of the best guys around for teaching speed and agility development. I’ve enjoyed his previous publications, and he just wrote up this new resource for the International Youth Conditioning Association.  It’s very affordably priced, so I’d encourage you to check it out if this is an area of your coaching development that needs improvement.

5 Loading Protocols Under the Microscope – In light of a recent conversation I had during a recent training session, I thought it would be a good time to bring back this T-Nation article I wrote back in 2011.

    Eric writes an extremely thoughtful, articulate analysis of loading parameters. He examines their various merits, and potential effects. Comprehensive, brilliant.

    The T-Nation braintrust brands it: “Five Loading Parameters that Suck”.

    Talk about misrepresenting the article! Talk about dumbing down.

    B/c you gotta go grab those junior high bros by the balls with your title, yeah?! We don’t want anything too sophisticated, b/c that might provoke independent thought. Independent thought might provoke research. Research might provoke pesky questions about supplement ingredients, and whether they can really provoke more muscular gains than anabolic steroids.

    Awesome! Yeah, those loading parameters TOTALLY SUCK, bro! T-Nation said so! Dude, I’m gonna get so SWOLE using those other GOOD training protocols! And guess what else? “Stretching is BS”, man!
