Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 8/1/20

Written on August 1, 2020 at 9:08 am, by Eric Cressey

It’s time for another edition of recommended reading/listening from the strength and conditioning world:

Eric Cressey on coaching the individual, building a community of hard work and athlete best practices – I recently joined Lewis Hatchett on the Raising Your Game Podcast for a discussion on a variety of coaching topics.

How to Use the Stage System for Strength, Speed, and Size – Yesterday, I had a conversation with a client after he saw the rep scheme “3×3,1×6” plugged into his program – and it reminded me of this article I wrote about the stage system a while back. I figured today would be a good time to reincarnate it, in case you missed it the first time around.

Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art – I just finished up this (audio)book from James Nestor, and found it to be a really good listen, particularly in the context of the history of breathing training/reeducation.
