Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 4/26/12

About the Author: Eric Cressey

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

The Walk-On – This article by Jim Wendler should be mandatory reading for an high school kid who hopes to play college sports – and not even just the walk-ons. It’s a great story about hard work, humility, and why the process is as important as the destination.

The New Rules of Lifting for Life – Alwyn Cosgrove has been a great friend and mentor to me for years – and this book is a great resource, too. I view this as excellent “gift” material; it’s something you can recommend to a family member who wants to get fit, but needs direction. Lou Schuler is Alwyn’s co-author, and his writing is always very engaging.

Scariest Fitness Trends – Adam Campbell interviewed me for this compilation for Men’s Health, and it was subsequently picked up by Fox News. I think this is another one you can simply forward to a relative who trains like an idiot and needs direction!
