Stuff You Should Read: 3/2/10

Written on March 2, 2010 at 10:13 am, by Eric Cressey

Here are a few recommendations for this week:

East Coast Muscle – Recently, Men’s Health Fitness Editor Adam Bornstein traveled all along the East Coast to check out several training facilities – one of which was Cressey Performance.  This blog post details his experiences and features a picture of one dead sexy guy named Cressey lifting heavy stuff.

Five Resistance Training Myths in the Running World – This is one of my most popular articles of all-time, and with the number of crazy endurance folks getting ready for the Boston Marathon in 10-degree weather, it seemed like a fitting time to bring this piece to the forefront once again.

Made to Stick – Someone mentioned this in conversation the other day, and it reminded me that it was one of my favorite books of the past five years.  It’s a great read – whether you’re a teacher, trainer, parent, or any of a number of other things!

    In that link to Adam Bornstein’s blog, the picture shows you with a belt on and the caption says you were warming up.

    Do you have a certain percentage of approximate 1RM above which you will wear the belt and/or if lifting earlier in morning?

    Just curious if you have a few quick guidelines for when wearing the belt is actually a good idea/a positive enhancement, since I know you’re not a guy who makes use of it as a perpetual crutch.
