Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 11/18/19

Let's kick off the week with some recommended reading and listening from around the 'Net:

Eric Cressey Talks Shoulders and Modern Baseball - I joined Jason Glass on his podcast to discuss baseball training and much more.

He told a kid to slide. Then he got sued. - This is a great write-up on a legal battle with implications for every coach. It's scary to think that our society is this litigious, particularly when it comes to a well-intentioned, under compensated high school baseball coach.

Todd Hamer: Getting Fired, Re-creating Yourself, and Shaping Your Role - Todd Hamer is one of my favorite people in the strength and conditioning field, and he shares some excellent career insights on this podcast with Brett Bartholomew.

One of the most important โ€œcompetenciesโ€ for being a durable pitcher is having as much active control of your passive external rotation range-of-motion at the shoulder. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Itโ€™s a big red flag for me when I see a pitcher with loads of passive external rotation (measured in supine) who is weak as a kitten in a prone external rotation against gravity past 90 degrees of external rotation. Here, @ckluber28 shows off really good active control over a big ROM on a prone external rotation end-range lift-off. Notice that he avoids the most common substitution patterns: wrist extension, elbow flexion, elbow extension, and scapular depression. ๐Ÿ‘, Corey. ๐Ÿ‘ I would call this exercise a motor control drill. We use it in warm-ups and as fillers between medicine ball drills. It complements cuff strength and timing drills nicely in a comprehensive arm care program. ๐Ÿ‘Š Apologies for the shaky camera work. I get excited when I see good arm care work in action.๐Ÿ˜‚ #cspfamily #clevelandindians

Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 5/11/15

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the mothers who read this blog; I hope you all had a great day yesterday! As a belated gift, here are some recommended resources for the week:

A Doctor's View of CrossFit - I thought this was an excellent interview at T-Nation with Dr. Stuart McGill, arguably the world's premier spine specialist. He definitely covered some points that haven't been mentioned previously in the Crossfit debate, and you'll find quite a few one-liners you'll want to commit to memory. One that stood out to me: "Olympic lifting must find the lifter. Not the other way around given the special anatomical gifts needed to lift with efficiency and injury resiliency."

An Interview with Eric Cressey, by Jason Glass - Jason and I talked shop a few weeks ago, and you can listen to the podcast online now. We covered a lot of topics, the foremost of which was training rotational sport athletes.

Hip Extension and Rotation in the Baseball Swing - I had a great conversation with a seminar attendee this weekend about this very topic, so I thought I'd bring this great guest post from Jeff Albert (minor league hitting coordinator for the Houston Astros) back to the forefront.
