I’m en route to LA as this goes live, via Virgin America Airlines.

Look at me all fancy pants.

It’s like a spaceship. Except not in space.

Anyways, I have nothing of importance to say so lets get right to this week’s list shall we?

Shifting In and Out of Patterns: A Discussion on Extension, Neutrality, and Performance – Dr. Pat Davidson

Pat is a savage (and author of one of the best training manuals in recent memory, MASS. The title alone should tell you all you need to know).

I really appreciated this article as it speaks to some of the reasons why PRI – breathing patterns – is so valuable in a strength & conditioning setting.

5 Thoughts On Off-Season Baseball Training – Mike Robertson

My name is Tony Gentilcore, I’m known for training baseball players, and I approve this message. Mike hit a home run with this article. He threw it right down the pipe. You could say this article is “a can of corn” in terms of how applicable and easy the information is.

Too many baseball puns? My bad.

Suffice it to say his break down of the importance of the serratus anterior is worth the read alone.

2x Bodyweight Deadlift: Unreasonable Standard or Realistic Goal – Artemis Scantalides

Artemis asked a bunch of strength coaches their opinion on the 2x bodyweight deadlift marker. Is there merit to the goal? Or is it a bunch of nonsense?

s3 Method: A Programming Framework For Improving Speed, Size, and Strength

TODAY (11/13) is your last chance to purchase Nick Tumminello’s latest resource at a heavily discounted price. I love Nick’s work and he’s someone I always learn something from.

This is a very thorough resource covering THREE modules that will not only give you a deep look into Nick’s approach to program design, but give you tons of tools to make you more rounded fitness professional.

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.

    @Greg Robins. Yeah but a 100 lb man must devote a good 25 lbs to his skull and organs, which don't assist in lifting a weight. Whereas a 400 lb man maybe devotes 30 lbs to skull and organs, so in that sense the skinny guy must lift 200/75= 2.67X; the big boy only has to do 800/370 = 2.16X. Of course there are others factors making gross weight the impressive item- in addition to the greater distance you presume...
