I have two words for you: Bachelor weekend.

My wife is away this weekend with my mother-in-law as the latter is being inducted into her alma mater’s Athletic Hall of Fame.1 This 100% means I’ll be catching up on some movie watching and chilling with my cat on the couch for the next two days. You know, because I live life dangerously.

What are your plans this weekend? More exciting than mine I hope.

Lets jump into this week’s list of stuff to read.

He LOVES eccentric training and after reading this article I can see why. LOTS of good stuff to pick up and apply.

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.
  1. As an aside, my wife, Lisa, is also in her alma mater’s Athletic Hall of Fame. I got an “A” on a paper I once wrote in college. I mean, no big deal.
