Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 7/6/14

Written on July 6, 2014 at 5:52 am, by Eric Cressey

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. After a quick blog hiatus, we're back to it today with some recommended strength and conditioning reading:

Elite Training Mentorship - In this month's update, I have a webinar - "Do You Really Need More Thoracic Extension?" - as well as two exercise demonstration videos and an article. Tyler English has some excellent content in this update, too.

Connecting with Cressey - Ashley Crosby, director of social media for the Cape Cod Baseball League, came up to hang out at Cressey Performance, and wrote up her experience. Also, here is a follow-up piece on the CCBL website that goes into even more detail.


The Not-So-Ugly Truth About Gluten - TC Luoma did a great job with this piece for T-Nation.

    About gluten.. the article points out how gluten sensitivity leads to celiac disease. Let me give you an analogy. If you have a tooth, and that tooth has holes in it, is it a healthy tooth? So if a dentist decides not to fill the hole, you’re going have some serious problems with that tooth, a possible root canal or even having to get that tooth pulled. Celiac disease is the end result of a leaky gut. This doesn’t happen from eating gluten over a brief period of time! Also, there are many more derivatives of gluten, not just because they’ve been processed in the same factory. My experience with myself and clients is that if a grain free diet is followed, the inflammation in their bodies significantly decrease. I encourage them to eventually try the grains after a few weeks, and by the next day they have some signs of inflammation. It could be puffiness, gastrointestinal distress, headaches… That’s my 2 cents about the third article! Have a great day!

    And the gluten cult arrives.

  3. Nick McCray Says:

    Ryan you say theoretical statements as if they’re indisputably proven fact.

  4. Alen Ron Says:

    Doctors don’t really know what causes the disease. Having certain genes can increase your chance of getting it. You’re more likely to have these genes and get celiac disease if a close family member has the disease.
