5 Ways Trainers Need to Improve – Nick Tumminello
Supreme writing by Nick on this one, and he hits the nail on the head.
Point #1 really resonated with me: “Some trainers are doing half-ass physical therapy, not training.”
Understanding Mobility – Dean Somerset
One of the most thorough articles in recent memory on what “mobility” really is and how we can effectively train for it (if it’s deemed necessary). Hint: it rarely involves stretching.
ISOs and High-Tension Lifting: Why They Make Sense – Todd Bumgardner
Also, Don’t Forget
To check out Simple Shoulder Solution by Max Shank. It was just released this week, and is getting awesome feedback.
It takes a more unconventional approach to shoulder health, but that’s what I dig about it. I LIKE when coaches think outside the box and take more of a “lets do some cool shit and train” mentality. I’m 100% stealing some of his material. But, you know, giving credit. Max could kick my ass in 2.3 seconds.
