Happy Labor Day weekend everyone and to those of you in Boston, God Speed to all of you movers today. Those of you reading this today that aren't from the Boston area or have never lived here here's the deal. A small portal to hell opens up, September 1st and the days around it. The chariots are disguised as moving trucks and there are seemingly no rules to be followed. The reason being is because there's so many colleges and universities, most leases on apartments start and run out around this time, I experienced it once for myself and I just assume stick a rusty nail up my nose than do it again, to all you doing it today, take a deep breath, be patient and best of luck.
Alright, now that everyone knows why September 1st is a big party here in Boston, here's this weeks Insta post
Power Clean Form 101: Perfect Your Technique and Build Explosive Power- Last week Mike Anderson had a new piece drop on Stack. Mike's taught me most of what I know about olympic lifts (and lifting in general). He certainly gave me my base at the very least, so if you like anything that I write or talk about in the slightest, you need to go check this thing out, like now.
Gray Cook: Stability vs Mobility- For those that have followed me for more than 5 seconds, or have come to train with me, you know damn well that I love carries (you'll see more on this next week...hint hint wink wink). Gray Cook has probably forgotten more about carries (and fitness in general) than I currently know. This video from a couple years ago, on this subject is worth a watch. I believe he's talking to a Strong First KB coaching course, but the message is still good accross all platforms.
Strength House Podcast Ft. Tony Gentilcore- For those looking for a different fitness podcast here's one to get into. Beer and fitness? Yeah sign me up. Greg Robins and Tony Bonvechio have been at this for awhile now, but if you need a better reason than the two I provided before, Tony G was on this episode and it was filmed at Core. Need more of a reason than that you say? We can't be friends.
