Good Reads For the Week: Christmas Edition
Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I thought I’d put together a new list of good articles for you to read in case you have some extra time on your hands or just want a reason to dodge the hoopla.
Before I get to the list, I just found out yesterday about an awesome seminar happening in three weeks that I wanted to share with you. Dr. Stuart McGill will be speaking January 14-15 in Phoenix, Arizona about essentially everything imaginable related to the spine. Assuming my knee is ok to travel by then, I plan on going myself, and I can’t wait. Should be awesome. Even better is that there is a promotion going on where you can get $150 off the price of admission if you sing up by December 31st—so basically a week. The promo is on Strengthcoach.com , so if you’re a member, check it out. If you’re not a member, this might be a good time to join, as the savings you’ll get for the conference will pay for a year and a half on the site.
If you do decide to attend, let me know so we can try to meet up there.
Ok, now for the articles. Consider this my Christmas gift to y’all. Ho ho ho!
Here are some posts you may have missed during the week.
