Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work (or Waiting for a Hurricane)
Hurricane Irene is on a b-line headed straight for the East coast, apparently set to hit North Carolina in full force sometime Saturday, and we should be getting some pretty nasty weather here in Boston later Saturday evening. The latest update has it downgraded to a Category 2 – and the reports here in Boston say at worst, it will be a tropical storm – but that’s not stopping everyone from stocking up on food and water here in the city.
I could attempt to try to be funny here, but honestly, I got nuthin. To everyone who happens to be in the storm’s path: BE SAFE!!!!!
ALSO: Today marks the last day you can purchase Muscle Imbalances Revealed – Upper Body and still get a “seat” for the exclusive Coaching Call with all of its creators (myself included) that will take place on Tuesday, August 30th at 9 PM EST.
It should make for an awesome event, so don’t hesitate and miss out an a pretty cool opportunity to talk some shop with some smart dudes.
Why Cressey Performance is Awesome – Will Davis
Will’s a bloke from England who’s in the US for the next few months getting his learnification on. We had the pleasure of having him stop by the facility earlier this week to observe for a few days, and he wrote a really complimentary review of his experience above.
Some things he forgot to mention, though:
1. Our conversation we had about hot British chicks: ie – Kate Beckinsale. Specifically, how Kate Beckinsale is renewing her role in the next Underworld movie. There is a god!!!!!!
2. My affinity for Star Wars references.
Show Me Your Guns – Christina from ilovefetacheese.com
First off, that’s an awesome name for a website because I freakin HEART feta cheese. Secondly, this was a post that was forwarded to me by a frequent reader of my blog who felt I’d appreciate the overall message – which I did. A lot.
Basically it’s this: The author is just a normal 24ish year old, female PhD student with a passion for fitness. She reached out to women who’s blogs she reads etc. to send her pictures of ‘their guns’. The end result was a beautiful compilation of strong, fit females who all look completely different.
Nice job, ladies.
This Is Silly, An Outlook on Training – Matt Brown
This was actually one of the more refreshing articles I’ve read in a looooooong time. I love “perspective” pieces, and this was just that. Trust me, read it. You won’t be sorry.
