Happy Friday all! Back with another edition of things I've found. First off for those that haven't heard, we have shirts in stock (limited now even). They're pretty sick so get 'em while you can. One you're done figuring out whether or not you want a shirt (let's be real, you want one so just do it), check out the stuff I found this week below.
Periodization for the Everyday Athlete- You know how most people say time is their biggest enemy when it comes to training and working out. Mike Robertson from IFAST might have the solution for you right here in this. The bucket graphic illustrates well what things should like in regards to your training, recovery and schedule.
Some Points on Core Training- Those that have trained with me know I have particular distain for certain "ab" exercises. First of all lets call them core exercises, it'll keep us all sane. Second of all check out this piece from Ashley Crosby, CSP-Jupiter's Strength Camp director (Orlando/Jupiter area people contact me about training to be a boss with her), about core training. Just so you know I'm not completely off my rocker when it comes to training that particular area.
A Trainer's Guide to Help Manage and Fix Lower Back Pain- Deep breath for this one, it's a bit lengthy, but worth it a promise. Dr. Stuart McGill from University of Waterloo is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to the spine and back issues when training. If you or your clients have constant low back pain, consider a click on this sucker.
