Written on May 28, 2013 at 10:19 am, by Eric Cressey

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.  I've been traveling, so apologies for the delayed publication on this one! Here's this week's list of recommended strength and conditioning reading:

What's the Best Diet?  – Here's a great piece from the good folks at Precision Nutrition that'll make you think twice about whether there is one perfect diet for you.

Strength Training Success: How Dr. P did at 47 What He Couldn't Do at 30 – This was an old blog, but one with an enduring set of lessons.  I think you'll find it entertaining.

The Effect of Reactive Neuromuscular Training in Pitchers – This was an excellent guest post from former CP intern Sam Sturgis on Mike Reinold's blogs. We know rhythmic stabilizations are valuable, but this piece sheds more light on how they are best utilized.

    In regards to Sam Sturgis’ article about rhythmic stabilizations: I am a “loose” shoulder guy. I understand the value of having these in a program so would you recommend adding them in post throwing or later in the day? I have been doing a form of these before throwing as a warm up and will now stay away from doing so because of the lower velocity.

    I think you might have misinterpreted that.  It likely DOES have some value for the loose guys when used pre-throwing, but not so much for the tight guys.

    I’d do a small amount of them pre-throwing and then the rest on off-days.  Doing them post-throwing won’t do much to help, as the cuff will already be fatigued.
