Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 6/7/12

Written on June 7, 2012 at 2:12 pm, by Eric Cressey

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

Treadside Manner: Confessions of a Serial Personal Trainer – Greg Justice sent me an advanced copy of this book he wrote on the business side of the fitness industry, and I thought it was outstanding (so, outstanding, in fact, that I read it non-stop on a long plane ride).  Greg has run a successful personal training facility in Kansas City since 1986, and he discusses many of the lessons he’s learned along the way.  It’s become mandatory reading for our entire staff at Cressey Performance.

Glutes Gone Wild – I really enjoyed this T-Nation article from Ben Bruno not just because there were some exercises I hadn’t seen before, but because a lot of these exercises are great options for maintaining a training effect on the uninjured side in someone who has a lower extremity injury. Ben has great perspective in this regard, as he’s dealt with knee issues and had to be creative to keep his muscle mass and strength up.

IFAST Assessment: Breathing Patterns – I was psyched to see that Bill Hartman is blogging again!  Bill’s a super smart guy and always has great information to share, and this post (and the videos in it) touch on an important, but commonly overlooked issue.

    Last Thursday, I had one of the biggest single day sales of Treadside Manner…the same day you put up this blog post…hmmm, I wonder if there’s a correlation?

    Somehow I missed the post the other day, and just came across it a few minutes ago.

    Thanks, Eric, for everything you do for our industry, and the kind words about my book!
