Hello all and a very happy Friday to everyone, hopefully everyone made it through the week without freezing to the bench at their local train stop this week. Seriously there was pretty much no fall, we're nearly on the verge of winter here. OK enough small talk, I've got some great pieces for you all to read with your "spare" time at work.
Before we get to that, of course we have our random or not so much, Insta post of the week.
50 Things I've Learned This Year- For some easy lessons and easy reading, turn to Bryan Krahn and this post. I mean the dude's built like a house and has loads of experience in lifting. Surely 1 of these 50 things will hit home with you. Prepare for a few laughs as well, never a bad thing. (bulldog pictures!)
How to Help Your Squat Catch Up with You Deadlift- As someone that has a less than stellar squat depth and therefor has issues with loading up the squat in general this one spoke to me. Greg Knuckols might not be everyone's cup of tea to read from, I mean who actually listens to science now any way? I forgot where I was going with this, but instead of listening to my ADD kick in, just go read his post.
Why Therapy Can Be Beneficial for Everyone- To toss some beans out there, I have recently considered talking to someone (stress is a real bastard kids), so when I saw Dr. Lisa Lewis had written this post, of course I dove head first into it. If you're wondering about therapy for ANY reason, read this post, maybe it'll give you that final nudge to seek out someone. I might be biased, but Lisa is a super awesome person and I really hope her post helps many of those out there that are seeking it.
