It's that magic day we all look forward to folks. Yeah it's Friday I know, but what I'm really talking about is the next installment of Things I've Found That Are Awesome. Have a look at the different place to check out this week and I'll be back next week with a new original post.
How's Your Community?- Todd Bumgardner from Strength Faction hits on a really good point here. Places where people succeed have really good communities. It's a fairly quick read, but I believe the message is important just the same.
GGS Exercise Spotlight: Kettlebell Swing-This one is a little older, I had a conversation with a client this morning that inspired me to include this nugget about KB swings and how awfully they are butchered on the reg. Molly Galbraith at Girls Gone Strong is always pumping out great content and has some awesome contributors to her website. Her spotlight coach Karen Davis breaks down the swing really well so no more back pain on swings. Also for you ladies looking for women to follow and relate your strength training to...you're welcome.
11 Year Old Athlete Overdoses On Sports Camps-A Parable-This article is about 5 years old, but it's still a problem I see out there. Parents basically make their kids hate sports because they overdose them on sports instead of letting them be a damn kid. I still refer back to this Mike Boyle article when I sense a client/athlete is being ground into the pavement by the amount of sports (and sports camps) they are being sent to.
That's what I got to day guys, go out there and get after it!
