Good Reads for the Week
This has been a packed week for me with a lot of learning thrown into the mix. On Thursday I went into Boston to watch Sue Falsone give a lecture, and yesterday I drove down to Connecticut for an awesome seminar with Mike Robertson, Eric Cressey, Pat Rigsby, BJ Gaddour, Ryan Ketchum, Dave Schmitz, and more. It’s been a great week, but I’m looking forward to taking it a little easy today before going back to the grind mañana.
In other news, Friday marked the first official day of fall, and I’m definitely happy about that. Fall is my favorite season. The weather is prime—not too hot, not too cold—and you’ve got football. I care mostly about the football part, but the weather is nice too.
It’s been a little over a week with the new site, and so far, everything seems to be going well. If you have any feedback on things I should change, let me know because I’m trying to work out the kinks. My feelings won’t be hurt. Along those lines, if you subscribed to my old site or had me on your blogroll, please change the web address. I actually forgot to do that myself on Facebook and Twitter, so I imagine some of you may have too. Also, please remember to sign up for my newsletter to the right.
Anywho, I’ve put together another great list of fitness articles from the past week, so let’s check em out. First off, be sure to check out my most recent article on T-Nation called Bulgarian Split Squats.
Now here are a few posts you may have missed during the week.
