Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 3/25/11
T-minus FOUR days, 17 hours, 32 minutes, and 23 seconds and I’m outta here on a much needed vacation (but who’s counting). My girlfriend and I are heading down to her homestate of Florida next week, where I plan on doing nothing but being horizontal (get your mind out of the gutter) and soaking up vasts amounts of vitamin D.
We’re going to be in Jensen Beach as a matter of fact; which, coincidentally, is the pineapple capital of the world!
It’s going to be glorious. I’m contemplating possibly taking the entire week off from training – I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that, but seems how Lisa’s mom got us a week’s pass to the local gym, that’s highly unlikely. I say I’m going to take time off, but then after like two days, I go through withdrawls and have to lift something heavy off the floor. It’s like a tick.
Anyways, Ihave the ladies showing up for the women’s group in like fifteen minutes, so I’m just going to leave you this week with a few things to keep you from doing your work:
Success Tips from Cressey Perfomance – Jason Bonn
Jason is one of the team members of Precision Nutrition, and is also currently interning at CP. Here, Jason sheds some light on his experience at CP and does an excellent job at helping people realize that it sometimes makes more sense to focus on the “common threads” in life.
This was/is a fantasic article that pretty much lays the smack-down on every myth, fallacy, and idiocracy that saturates the fitness industry with regards to training women. Huge props goes out to Juliet for writing such a thorough and well written article – and, this is only PART 1
13 Tips for Anyone Who Wants to Improve Performance and Look Better Naked Part I – Training – Molly Galbraith
And, not to be outdone, Molly (who rocks a 341 lb deadlift, with movie star good looks to boot) provides all sorts of sound, practical advice that can (and should) be followed by anyone – whether you have a boy part or girl part.
That’s it for this week! Have a great weekend everyone.
