As many of you are aware, yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t think I have to tell you that Boston L.O.V.E.S St. Patrick’s Day.

Not only does Boston host one of the most baller St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country1, but the city more or less shuts down for the day to jointly celebrate what’s known as Evacuation Day; a holiday that commemorates the evacuation of all the drunk people on Boylston St after the parade British forces from city of Boston following the Siege of Boston, early in the Revolutionary War.

So there you go, a little Boston history lesson for you. Who said you never learn anything on this site?

Lets get to this week’s stuff to read.

Complete Core Training – Mike Robertson

I trust Mike as a coach so much and respect the quality of content he routinely releases, that he could title something “Eat This Giant Pile of Hippopotamus Shit and You’ll Deadlift a Bulldozer,” and I’d buy it.

What this resource is NOT: a video database of unique and zany abdominal exercise you can wow your clients with on Monday.

What this resource IS: a thorough and detailed overview detailing Mike’s SYSTEM when it comes to “core” training. Which, really, is training everything.

Whether you’re a fitness professional or someone who takes his or her’s training more seriously than the average person, this would make an excellent addition to your knowledge repertoire.
