Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 7/5/12

About the Author: Eric Cressey

Here are a few recommended strength and conditioning reads for the week:

Acts of Commission vs. Omission – I got to discussing the concept of “risk: reward” with a seminar attendee last week, and it reminded me of this blog I wrote back in 2010.  The message is incredibly valuable for novice and experienced strength and conditioning coaches alike.

Assessing Apical Expansion – This is another great video from Bill Hartman, this time on the topic of breathing.  We heavily “scrutinize” breathing in our baseball guys and do several breathing drills on the table as part of their warm-ups.  The more extension your athletes encounter in the sport, the more powerful this stuff becomes.  For more information, be sure to check out the Postural Restoration Institute.

Fitocracy – I’ve been logging my training sessions on here for the past few weeks and really enjoying it.  If you’re looking for a way to quantify your efforts and even add a little competition to your training, this is a great outlet through which to do so.
