I am getting ready to head out the door to go visit my mom and grandmother in Florida for Easter, but first, as promised, I have put together another installment of Good Reads from the past week (or technically the last 4 days). Considering the short week, I think this turned out to be an excellent compilation, with 60 links in all. Truth be told, a list this size may actually be better than some of the mammoth ones I have been putting out recently because there is a possibility of actually making it through everything. In any case, between this, Wednesday’s For Your Viewing Pleasure with 60 awesome videos, and last week’s Good Reads with 120 links, it should keep you more than busy enough until I return next week.
Since I won’t be posting anything while I’m away, I thought I would also leave you with a bonus video as well. I took the past week off from training and was planning to get back to it today, but with my trip, that layoff will be extended to two weeks. As such, I snuck a kick workout in yesterday and did some glute-ham raises. Since I am normally stronger coming off a week off, I decided to try Overhead GHR’s again to see if I could pull them off. I was close before, but I could never quite maintain proper body position without breaking at the hips on the concentric. The week off certainly helped recharge my batteries, and it was a different story this time around. When I get back from my trip, I want to write a little bit about the importance of taking time off and discuss this exercise a bit more, but for now, just enjoy the video. This is an awesome exercise and my hamstrings keep reminding of that fact this morning every time I try to sit down.
Now let’s get to the list. While it may lack in quantity compared to prior lists, it certainly does not lack in quality. First, here are some posts you may have missed during the week.
