Stuff You Should Read: 12/9/09

Written on December 9, 2009 at 10:55 am, by Eric Cressey

It’s been a while since I published one of these, so I thought I’d throw out two quick recommendations – both for reads from Cressey Performance guys.

Exercises You Should Be Doing: Quadruped Rhythmic Stabilizations – This blog from Tony Gentilcore features an exercise we’ve introduced in the past month since the seminar I did with Mike Reinold.  It integrates “true” training for the rotator cuff along with an element of anterior core stability training.

Liquid Reeses and Banana – Brian St. Pierre presents a sweet shake idea for those of you in love with chocolate, but not wanting to eat all the bad stuff that’ll give you a spare tire to remind you of how great the winter of 2009-2010 was.

    It is referring to keeping the shoulder blades down and back, as this is more stable and shoulder friendly than having the shoulder girdle hiked up into elevation and protracted/rounded forward.
