Good Reads for the Week: 7/21/2012
This week flew by for me for some reason. Seriously, I can’t believe it’s Saturday already.
In any case, I’ve got another great compilation of fitness articles for you this time.
First off, earlier in the week I mentioned that my friend John Romaniello was sharing his new Super Hero Fat Loss program on a 50% off sale through Friday. Since that post, John’s extended the sale through the weekend so you can still get in half off until the end of Sunday. I’d definitely check it out here, and you can read my thoughts about the program here.
I also had another new article go up on T-Nation this past Monday called 6 Primo Permutations sharing some different pressing exercises you can do in lieu of the bench press and overhead press.
And here are a few posts you may have missed.
Landmine Reverse Lunges
Cool Fat Loss Program
Now for the best of the rest. Enjoy!
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Sohee Lee. I really liked this one. Very honest, and very well-written.
Do It Because It Works by John Romaniello. This is a cool article that one was written for Arnold’s website, and anything pertaining to Arnold is automatically twice as cool, making this uber-cool.
Table Adductor Dips by Eric Cressey. This is a great one from Eric. He shares a bunch of reason why this is a good drill, but what draws me to it is that it’s a lot more friendly than a lot of lateral lunge or Cossack squat variations. Great idea.
The Death of Muscle Building by Jason Ferruggia. Good stuff as usual from Jason.
