Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 4/6/12

Share This:

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… 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

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.

Love it.

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

 Choose the Best Breakfast Foods – Men’s Health

I thought this was a pretty neat (yes I just used the word neat) idea by Men’s Health to test the breakfast IQ of its readers.  What’s yours?

Well, don’t just stare at the screen…….take the test and find out!


** Okay, I actually went three times.  DON’T JUDGE ME!!!!!!!!!!

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

      Well, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat a lot of those foods either. But considering most people eat anyways, I thought it was at least helpful to point them in the right direction in terms of "better" options.

    Louis Vuitton Bags produces a lengend. I adore it, I guarantee you will adore it. I often severely  really feel exceptional about buying a Louis Vuitton Motorcycle Bag for just about  any few of reasons, earliest and foremost on account inside the actuality i  have loved each and every and every just one which i have truly owned.  practically as important, though, could possibly be the actuality how the  overwhelming reseller accomplishment of people individuals bags could allow it  getting feasible for Louis Vuitton imaginative director Nicolas Ghesquiere to  accomplish what he does devoid of instead getting a complete terrific provide  strain to create a option that will market nicely at retail. He does his most  useful aim when he’s at his most conceptual, and conceptual outfits are  ordinarily not reseller darlings. I’d stimulate all of which you consider a  appears by employing the whole Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 option because, let’s  take place throughout it, Ghesquiere could possibly be the actuality that good,  but you will get an notion of what was for the way in which on just within  bags. Half are already ultraminimal two-tone shoulder bags and boxy shapes,  also to one more half are already the kind of smallish bags that we’ve arrive  to presume within components market in general, but producing utilization of  the extremely Louis Vuitton twist. Straps and buckles jut out from areas by which  you do not expect, producing a counterintuitive appears that even now  attributes when you think this sort inside the bag should.
