Good Reads for the Week

Posted on by Ben Bruno

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and getting geared up for another great week. To help facilitate that, I’ve put together another great compilation of fitness reads from the past week. It’s a great list and I think you’ll really like it. There’s a lot to read so I’ll cut my blabbering short right here.

Before we get into it, I want to remind you to please follow me on Twitter HERE. I’ve been using it more recently so it’s a good way to stay in the loop.

Next, I wanted to bring your attention to a newer blog from one of my friends and fellow MBSC coaches, Scott Hansen. Scott is a good coach and a really nice guy and I think you’ll like what he has to say. You can check it out HERE.

Ok, the reading. First, here are some posts you may have missed during the week.
