Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 4/6/12
Two things before we get to the stuff you should be reading:
1. I’m not going to lie, I kinda want to go see Titanic 3D this weekend. There, I said it. Let the ball busting begin.
I remember when the movie first came out in theaters (SPOILER ALERT: the ship sinks) – back when I was in college – and being absolutely blown away. Sure, it had the sappy love story and all that, but the special effects were on point, and well, it did show boob – albeit PG-13 boob. But boob nonetheless!
Okay, dammit…..you got me. Yes, I got a little teary eyed when Rose told Jack she’d “never let go.” The first time I saw it (yes, I went twice**), I balled like a little school girl. The second time, I was on a date, so I was able to hold it together. Sorta.
Whatever. Don’t play it off like you didn’t get a little emotional during that part, too.
Anyways, I just remember Titanic being one of the more memorable movie experiences – right up there with Grindhouse (easily, the most fun I’ve ever had at the movies), and Avatar (which goes without saying), and I think seeing it in 3D would be kinda cool. Thing is, I don’t know if I’ll be able to handle Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On without fighting off the urge to jump off a cliff.
If you don’t see a blog here on Monday, you’ll know the answer.
2. My boy Dean Somerset is holding a sweet sale on his best-selling product Post Rehab Essentials all Easter weekend. I have a lot of respect for Dean, I consider him a good friend, and I think he’s one of the brightest minds in the industry when it comes to assessment and program design, which is why I feel this is a MUST HAVE product for any fitness professional to have at their disposal.
To sweeten the pot, Dean’s added two additional incentives on top of the already stellar content:
- “Developing Medical Referrals for Fitness Professionals” – 40 minute webinar
- NSCA CEUs – Post Rehab Essentials is now worth 1.2 CEUs for any CSCS or CPT.
For this weekend only, the entire package is on sale for only $99, down from the regular $209. With the money you save, you could watch Titanic like ten times!
15 Commandments for the 3 Big Lifts – Todd Bumgardner
This article drew me in like a moth to a flame. With a title as simple, basic, and badass as this, how could it not? The only way I would have clicked on the link quicker is if the article were titled, “Hey, Tony Gentilcore, Click Here to See Naked Pics of Alicia Keys!”
All kidding aside, this is an excellent piece by Todd which provides some solid tips/cues/advice on how to improve your performance with the big 3 – squats, deadlifts, and bench press.
5 Questions with a Girl Gone STRONG: Jen Comas Keck – Trey Potter
Trey continues with his on-going series with the Girls Gone Strong crew, and I think this may be the best of the bunch thus far (no offense to the other ladies
