Leading You Into the Weekend….
I know I promised I’d post my deadlift video last night, but given that I was having trouble walking the rest of the day- which made coaching athletes a bit challenging- I drove home afterwards, and went straight to bed. Which is to say, I cried myself to sleep.
On the bright side, I’m feeling much better today. Matter of fact, Eric, Pete, and myself are sitting here at CP waiting for everyone else to arrive so that we can train. Word on the street is that KevLar (Kevin Larrabee ) is making a cameo appearance today. Should be a fun training session today.
In any case, here’s the video:
Anyone who can’t see the badassness in that video needs to get LASIK’d in the face.
On an aside, we all know the saying “everything happens in “threes,” right? Well, it seems this is the week for great fitness products to be released. Three to be exact. As noted earlier in the week, Mike Boyle released his Functional Strength Coach 3.0 dvd, and this Monday Eric Cressey, Mike Robertson, and Bill Hartman are releasing their much anticipated Assess and Correct dvd. Too, Leigh Peele released another great product, Body by Eats .
I was lucky enough to get an advance copy last week, and after perusing it, I have to say that Leigh has hit another homerun. In a nutshell, while most “diet books” go out of their way to tell you what you CAN’T eat; Leigh does the opposite and teaches us to embrace food. It makes sense, really. We need food to survive. Granted, we don’t need the dozen donuts and deep fried Twinkies, but we do need food- whether your goal is to increase muscle mass or shed some body fat.
As well, food is just as much about culture and life experiences (family, friends, holidays, etc) as it is about anything physiological. That being said, Body by Eats isn’t just a diet book. Rather, it’s a fairly comprehensive look at food in general. Why we eat what we eat, and how we can manipulate what we eat to coincide with our goals (whatever they may be). I’d highly encourage anyone interested to check it out .
On that note, have an awesome weekend!
