Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 4/11/12

Written on April 11, 2012 at 9:55 pm, by Eric Cressey

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

Get Stronger by Doing Less – This was a guest blog I wrote over at MensHealth.com on the topic of managing training stress.

Foot Positions in the Squat – Here’s an excellent post from Charlie Weingroff.  Actually, I’d call it epic; he clearly put appreciable time and thought into it.

Why President Obama Throws Like a Girl – I usually bring this one back to the forefront every opening day, but completely forgot to do so this year.  Since there is a chance that he won’t be president next opening day, I figure I might as well milk this content for all it’s worth now. I didn’t hear about him throwing out a first pitch anywhere, so I wonder if this old post made him insecure.  I hope not, as we’re losing too many good baseball players to basketball nowadays, anyway!
