Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 8/28/12

Written on August 29, 2012 at 8:31 am, by Eric Cressey

Here’s this week’s list of recommended strength and conditioning reading:

Concurrent Training: Strength and Aerobic Training at the Same Time: I thought this was an excellent post from Patrick Ward.  If you’ve enjoyed the distance running for pitchers features here at EricCressey.com, you’ll “geek out” with this one.

Mighty Cholesterol – Brady Cooper did a great job of discussing what cholesterol levels really mean for your health.  This is the kind of article you can send to people who just don’t “get it.”

Does a Normal Elbow Really Exist? – This is an old post of mine that somehow got lost in the archives, but it’s well worth a read, particularly if you deal with throwing athletes.

    Mr. Cressey,

    I have a question for you regarding my thoracic spine. It is constantly cracking when I force my shoulder blades back, I have no pain, it just cracks. The cracking is now becoming a mental pain, as I have no idea what could be wrong and if this is hurting me or not. It usually only happens when I sit, or wear my bookbag. If that helps any. Thank you for your time.

    Drake Taylor

    Could be a number of things. I’d meet with a PT to discuss.

  • Avoid the most common deadlifting mistakes
  • 9 - minute instructional video
  • 3 part follow up series
