Good Reads for the Week: Special New Years Edition
Hopefully by now you are all caught up on the articles from Christmas edition of Good Reads. If not, be sure to check that out. With 2011 fast approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to have a special New Years edition as well. Between all the holiday hoopla and being away in Florida, I have not had a whole lot of time to get a list together, but there has been a ton of awesome stuff coming out this week in lieu of the New Year so I wanted to do my best to put something good together for you.
Before I start in with the list, I want to remind you to check out the new Exercise of the Week if you have not done so already. While you are it, be sure to subscribe to my You Tube page as well. I have a bunch of videos to upload soon so you don’t want to miss those.
Ok, the list. I’ll start by introducing two new blogs.
1. Bret Contreras. This isn’t a new blog really, but Bret just transferred his blog over to a new website, which you can check out here. You will notice at the top of the screen that you can sign up for a free newsletter, which includes a free 17 page report about glute training. I just signed up and it is some great stuff.
2. Jim Kielbaso. Jim has started a new blog on his Ultimate Strength and Conditioning website (it’s free). I just read his first post/article called “How Strong is Strong Enough?” and if it is any indication of things to come, it is going to be one heck of a blog.
Now for the rest of the articles. Since the theme of this week is obviously the New Year, I will put all New Years related stuff in the beginning before everything else.
