Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 12/23/11
Oh man, what a night last night! The CP family – employees and significant others – met up for our annual Holiday dinner at a renowned steak restaurant just outside of Boston and it was glorious.
Quick Quiz: What muscle is filet mignon?
Answer: Who cares, it’s delicious.
Real Answer: Psoas!
Use that bit of info the next time you’re out and need a conversation stimulator. You’re welcome.
Anyways, it was truly a wonderful evening, highlighted by the fact that
I managed to wear matching colored shoes and belt we were celebrating our FIFTH holiday get-together as Cressey Performance. When Pete mentioned that in passing during his toast, it was kind of surreal to think that it’s been five years (well, four and half, really) because it still feels like we just opened up the place.
Nevertheless, 2011 was a year of growth for CP, and 2012 looks to be even growthier (yep, I just invented a word). Thanks to all reading who not only support this site, but Cressey Performance as well.
To that end, for those who celebrate it: Have a safe and festive Christmas this weekend. I for one am really excited and plan on spending the entire day on Sunday relaxing and enjoying the day with Lisa.
See you next week!
and the J.A.R.G Goes to……Tony Gentilcore – Jonathan Goodman
Hopefully this doesn’t come across as narcissistic on my part, but and I couldn’t help but be surprised and feel really humbled and grateful that Jonathan would go out of his way to write up such an amazing post about……well……. me.
Ode to Deadlifts – Nia Shanks
This was a doozy of a post by Nia. Her and I both share a mutual respect/slightly creepy infatuation for the deadlift so I couldn’t NOT share this one with all of you.
A Simpleton’s Guide to Bulking: $*#**@^ Eat!!! – Tony Gentilcore
This is one I pulled from the archives and felt it would resonate with a few people reading – especially those who are curious as to how I generally go about eating when I want to add weight.
