Yup I did it again so here's an extra helping of the things that I've found.
P90X and Muscle Confusion: The Truth- I'm not necessarily one for telling people any sort of movement is bad. I just have a hard time watching people buy into a certain companies BS. No I don't care if you've "seen" fantastic results. I promise you if this is the only workout you do, when that zombie apocalypse hits, you and anyone that does as such will be eaten before the likes of me. It's an old one, but why go on a rant when Mr. Charles Staley has taken care of that for me.
Why You're Still an Intern- As someone that has been through a few internships this one really hit home. Mark Watts does a great job outlining how you can over come a seemingly endless cycle of internships and how to land that job that pays something not so meager. I've been there and done that, it's not a picnic.
Why CrossFit Doesn't Make an Elite Athlete- Mark Hansen certainly set off a few nerves with his guest post on Tony Gentilcore's site. It provided some discussion. For those of you that are about to blow your gasket, read the whole thing, then you can let loose.
What Does the Term "Retention Strategy" Mean to You?- I personally love the message here. Pete Dupuis gets it when it comes to how to take care of clients and customers. I have always been a firm believer that you should be doing the right things to the point where you don't need a retention strategy.
Overtraining is Killing Your Kids Athletic Development- Parents that have kids playing or plan on having their kids play sports, take this article into your brain. This stuff drives me absolutely crazy, to the point of where I need to be committed. I see it so many times with parents and kids, just stop and let them have some fun PLEASE. Have a read over Dr. Greg Schaible's work here on The Strength Doc and apply this, I'm begging you.
