A very happy wet Friday to those of you in the Northeast U.S. Anyone that has been begging for some First XV gear has had their prayer answered to an extent. More will be coming in the not too distant future, I promise.
Let's see what fun things I got my hands on for you all to read while you sit at work waiting for 5 PM to strike, enjoy.
10 Tips for Making Mobility Work with Your Schedule-Let's face it, everyone can use more mobility. The often excuse I hear is that time factor thing. Eric Cressey has come up with that solution for those of you excuse makers. I can totally relate to the long drive mentioned in #5 (Savannah any of my former UMaine Rugby teammates?).
Training Comes Full Circle- If you've been training for longer than 5 minutes (and if you're reading this blog you probably have) you can probably see yourself somewhere in this circle beyond Level One. Maybe you're just getting into this whole lifting thing so you are in the circle...just on Level One. Alwyn Cosgrove shows the cycle everyone goes through and you wind up right where you started in sorts.
6 Lifts to Fix Your Overhead Press-Looking for a way to challenge your overhead press? Maybe you've got a kink that seems to making a formidable wall on your overhead press. Joel Seedman has the answer to both issues. These suckers will ALL humble you, the Pizza Plate Press sounds fun, but it might be the most humbling for me. See which one challenges you the most and work on it.
