Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 7/11/11

Written on July 11, 2011 at 6:30 am, by Eric Cressey

Here’s a list of recommended strength and conditioning reads to kick off your week:

The Deadlift – This is an insanely thorough post from my buddy, Mike Robertson.

The State of the Fitness Industry – I really enjoyed this post from Pat Rigsby, who really has a great handle on what’s up with our industry.  While a lot of people think that the fitness industry as a whole is headed in the wrong direction, Pat does a great job here of highlighting the good things that are happening.  Call it a bit of Monday morning optimism!

On a semi-related note, I should give you a heads-up that I’m actually collaborating with Mike and Pat on two projects that should be released within the next month.  I think you’ll all really enjoy what we have in store for you!

EricCressey.com Baseball Specific Newsletter – A lot of people don’t realize that I actually have two newsletters here at EricCressey.com.  There’s my main one, which most people know about (but if you don’t, you can subscribe to it on the right hand side of this page).  Additionally, there is a free baseball-specific newsletter that you won’t get unless you subscribe to it separately from the main one; you can do so here (and you’ll receive a free copy of the post-throwing stretches our baseball guys utilize):


  • Avoid the most common deadlifting mistakes
  • 9 - minute instructional video
  • 3 part follow up series
