Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 5/24/19

Whoa – who was the a-hole this week and barely wrote anything for the site? And by “anything” I mean “zero, zilch, nada.” My bad. But it was for good reason. I travelled to Colorado Springs this week to film some stuff with the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) for their upcoming 2019 (Virtual)… Read more

Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 1/19/18

Man am I in a funk. This has never happened before, but I’m struggling to come up with content to write. I can’t say for sure, but it “may” have something to do with a soon-to-be one-year old that’s growing more and more mobile by the day.. In any case I apologize for my lack… Read more

I’m heading out to Cressey Sports Performance later on today to participate in the 10-year anniversary BBQ. Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Eric, Pete, and myself opened up shop in the corner of an indoor batting facility in Hudson, MA and that CSP has grown to what it is today. Even though… Read more

It’s Friday the 13th.   I don’t know about you, but I never understood the Friday the 13th urban legend. Where did it come from? It can’t be all that bad. The S&P500 rises 55% of the time that the 13th falls on a Friday. We also launched CSP on a Friday the 13th. So… Read more

Tony is Critical of CrossFit, But Should He Be?

Relax. My ego hasn’t ballooned to the point where I now refer to myself (and my posts) in the third person. Although I do kinda like the sound of it: Tony is critical of washing the dishes and putting them away, but should he be? Tony thinks Audi should sponsor this website, preferably by giving… Read more

Are You Part of the Resistance (or the Assistance)?

T-minus eight hours before Lisa and I hop on a plane and make our way to Australia and never come back. It’s a 20-hour long trip from Boston to Brisbane (where we land), and then a bit of a car ride to Ballina where I’ll be conducting the first of TWO workshops while there. One… Read more
