The Best of 2009: Stuff that was Fun to Write

Written on January 8, 2010 at 12:11 pm, by Eric Cressey

Thus far this week, we’ve covered the top articles, product reviews, videos, and guest submissions of the year.  Today, I just wanted to cover the stuff that was fun for me to write (or film) – and it isn’t just exclusive to EricCressey.com.

Birthday Blogging: 28 Years, 28 Favorites – I just remember that this thing rolled off my fingertips as I wrote it on my 28th birthday.

What Folks are Saying about the Cressey Performance Majestic Fleece – I just remember that we had to film this about 47 times because none of us could stop laughing.

The Opportunity Cost of Your Time – I don’t know why this one was fun to write, but it was.  I suppose it might have something to do with the fact that I started out at business school, and then moved over to the exercise science world to complete my undergraduate degree.

The Truth About Unstable Surface Training – This was actually introduced at the end of 2008 (and written in sections between 2005 and 2008), but deserves mention in light of its first full year of availability.  I’m most proud of this work because it took a ton of time to compile both the literature and our original research, which was the first of its kind.  Nobody had looked at how a long-term training lower-body unstable surface training intervention would affect healthy, trained athletes’ performance.  This book presents not only those results, but a series of practical application recommendations that are of value to any strength coach, personal trainer, or other fitness professional.

Lower Back Savers Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 – Featured at T-Muscle, these were really fun to write because I had a chance to be dorky and practical at the same time, blending research with what we’ve anecdotally seen in those with lower back issues.  Honestly, I still have enough content to write a part 4, and that may come around in the next few months.

    And I handed over my nutritional and training life to the guy in the beanie holding the mug of tea for 28 days? SCARY.

    I just read the back-saver posts for the first time. As a PT student currently studying spine (and reading lots of McGill) it was good stuff.
