Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 7/18/11

About the Author: Eric Cressey

It’s time to kick off the week with some recommended reading:

Meet the Real John Berardi – Dr. John Berardi is a guy I really admire for the way he’s built up a successful business (Precision Nutrition) and large following the right way: with fantastic information and and awesome “way” of getting through to people.  As I read this, it makes me appreciate that I could learn a lot from the good doctor on managing my personal time effectively, too!

Men’s Health: Coffee and Alzheimer’s Disease – I stumbled onto this Men’s Health blog by accident, but was very intrigued.  My grandfather passed away last fall after a long battle with Alzheimer’s, and he absolutely loved coffee.  In the past, I’ve read stories about how the body seems to know how to self-medicate, and reading this blog about the association between coffee consumption and reduced Alzheimer’s symptoms makes me wonder if Gramp knew something we didn’t.

Two Red Sox Prospects and Former Ivy League Rivals Find Common Ground – This ESPN Boston story features Cressey Performance athlete Matt Kramer, who has made the switch from catching to pitching in the middle of his pro career.

Last, but certainly not least, don’t miss out on Everything Elbow, the staff in-service I filmed last week.
