Written on August 17, 2011 at 5:06 am, by Eric Cressey

Here’s a list of recommended strength and conditioning reads (and views) for the week:

The Death of Personal Training – This is a great webinar by Alwyn Cosgrove that won’t air until 8/22, but you can sign up now to get access.  Alwyn was a great mentor to me on the business side of things when I was starting out, so it promises to be a very insightful event. Plus, he’s always hilarious when he presents!

Simple Posture Correction – Jim “Smitty” Smith introduces an excellent drill you can use to work on excessive scapular anterior tilt and poor thoracic mobility.

Evidence-Based Coaching – Sam Leahey clearly put a ton of work into compiling this post; the trainers and coaches out there will really benefit from reading this, even if it is a bit lengthy.
