Good Reads for the Week: 6/21/2013

It’s been three weeks since my last Good Reads, so I’m overdue. I typically put these posts together on the weekends, and I’ve been out of town the past couple weekends, so I haven’t had the time. This list is really good though, so I think it’ll make up for my blogging bummery. Here are a couple blogs I’ve written over the last three weeks.

I’ve been bad about updating my newsletter, but I’m going to try to be better and make it a good resource to share training tips and let you know what I’m up to. The title is pretty self-explanatory so I bet you can guess what [...]

Two Great Single Leg RDL Variations

Just about a year ago I shared a few blog posts showing landmine single leg RDLs and cross body landmine single leg RDLs (the links will take you to those posts). Using the landmine has changed the way I feel about single leg RDLs. I’ve never quite liked how they feel with the barbell, but the landmine feels really good to me and it allows you to load it up a lot heavier than you could using a single dumbbell, and I’ve also experienced some really good success using it with clients that struggle to do single leg RDLs in [...]
