Good Reads For the Week: 6/23/2012

Posted on by Ben Bruno

Time for another edition of Good Reads.

Here are two posts you may have missed during the week.

Look Like Barbie, Lift Like Ken

Resisted Valslide Leg Curls

Now for the rest.

2012 Buyer’s Guide by Sean Hyson. This is really cool. Sean took a ton of time to summarize and evaluate a lot of the most popular training and diet programs out there. I’ve been reading through this and I think it’s a cool resource to have. Plus, it’s completely free. Can’t beat that.

Sagittal Plane First by Mike Robertson. I really like Mike’s posts, and this is another great one. Just ignore the picture of the schmuck doing lunges :)

Training Compilation by Ross Enamait. This is a video rather than an article, but it’s so freakin’ awesome I decided to include it anyway. Ross does awesome work and this is one of the coolest training videos I’ve seen. He’s a beast with his training and a really nice guy to boot.

Working Toward the 225 Pound Hip Thrust Club by Kellie Davis. If you read my blog with any regularity then you know I’m all for women crushing heavy weights. You also know I’m partial to nice butts. This post melds those two passions into one post of awesomeness.

Improving Ankle Mobility Without Increasing Knee Pain by Eric Cressey. As someone who has been dealing with a lot of knee pain in recent months, this post was particularly useful for me.

    Ben,

    What exercises/stretching/routine would you recommend for someone who suffers from patellar tendinopathy in both knees?
    I’m a squat fiend like you but have to admit temporary defeat and train around this nuisance.

    Thanks
