Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: Welcome to 2015!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! And greetings from sunny Florida. Lisa and I left Boston yesterday to come down to Florida for a little R&R and to kick-start the wedding planning process.
(In case you’re new to the site, Lisa and I are getting married near her hometown this May!)
I give you the requisite engagement photo from this past Fall.
Now if only I can somehow convince Lisa into allowing me to place movie quality Chewbacca masks on every guest table as center pieces! She wants orchids. Pffffffffft, whatever. Nothing says I love you more than Chewbacca.
Said no one, ever.
And since I’m down here in Florida (and only 20 or so miles from Jupiter) I think I owe it to myself and the world to make a cameo appearance at Cressey Sports Performance Jupiter and introduce the athletes down here to TONY’s TIESTO TUESDAYS.
I suspect that this will be over Eric’s dead body.
And on that note, lets jump right into 2015’s first stuff to read…….
Stuff I Learned in 2014 – Lee Boyce
I still need to write MY year in review post (I promise I’ll get on that soon!), but in the meantime I invite you to read Lee’s. It’s fantastic. Not only is he a fantastic coach with a lot of perspective, but the man has impeccable movie taste to boot.
Simplifying Your Squat and Deadlift – Mike Robertson
It sounds like an oxymoron…..squats and deadlifts are anything but simple. However in this post, Mike discusses how we sometimes inundate ourselves with too many cues which can often stagnate progress.
The Lean Muscle Diet – Lou Schuler and Alan Aragon
I don’t often recommend mainstream diet books, because most mainstream diet books are about as useful as a poop flavored lollypop.
This book is fantastic, not in small part to the fact that both Lou and Alan are two guys who don’t BS and who are both very highly respected in the industry.
It’s that time of year where there’s a massive influx of mainstream diet and training books and it’s understandably going to be hard to separate the ones that are worthwhile compared to those that are abysmal.
Hopefully this subtle “thumbs up” from me helps out.
