Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 8/4/14

Written on August 4, 2014 at 8:44 am, by Eric Cressey

It's time for another installment of recommended strength and conditioning reading. Check it out:

The Functional Training Handbook - I contributed a chapter a few years ago for this compilation that was edited by Dr. Craig Liebenson, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this incredible lineup from the rehabilitation and strength and conditioning communities. I'm actually reading through the entire thing myself now, too!


Long-Term Success: What You Can Learn from Corey Kluber - This is a guest blog I had published on Gabe Kapler's site last week. Young athletes would be wise to follow Corey's lead on a number of fronts with respect to preparation.

All About Infant Nutrition - This isn't really about strength and conditioning, but since my wife and I have twins on the way, I've taken an even bigger interest in nutrition surrounding pregnancy. This was an excellent, comprehensive piece from the Precision Nutrition folks - and I'm sure the parents out there will benefit.

    Congrats on the kids on the way! If you don’t have an immersion blender, get one or a magic bullet. They’re great for when your transitioning to solid foods. Make your kids foods, you can do it in huge batches and freeze them in an ice cube tray or any other number of ways. Almost all of the store bought foods add sugar, often times it’s through sweet potatoes or other starches that are cooked to the point of carmelizing them. If you taste homemade peas or carrots vs. the store bought ones, the difference in sweetness will amaze you.
