Well I done gone goofed and did not get this guy up on Friday, so a few days late with a bonus piece to check out here is the things I've found for the week (and a couple days).
Five Resistance Training Myths in the Running World- It's an old one, but he brought it back up and with the prevalence of runners I've worked with I figured this is an appropriate one. Eric Cressey's post from May 2007 debunks some of those myths thats runners use as arguments for not training.
Stop Doing The Standing Hamstring Stretch- Also for all you runners out there and you know you do this. Shoot I use to even, so don't pretend you don't and give this a read. This quick reads from Dr. John Rusin of T-Nation is can solve a few problems for those that think this stretch is the answer.
Will a high-protein diet harm your health?- OK confession I totally jacked this from Eric's list of things to read, but not because I'm lazy. It's more because this has been such a big discussion/argument in the last 5 to 10 years. I love the way Helen Kollias provides ways to read the article depending on your level of interest or reason of interest in this post.
*Bonus* Because I feel bad
Why Motivation is Overrated-A couple of college football teams from this past weekend should know this term well...whoops too soon? Sorry that was bad but it was sitting in my brain and I had to put it out there. OK back to the present, our friends over at GGS and Lau Hanly did a great job of pointing out the issues with motivation when it comes to fitness...or anything for that matter.
