Week In Review: 2 April 2011

by Chris on April 2, 2011

One of the things I’d like to get rolling on this blog is sharing with you some of the great info shared out there from sites other than this. So every week I’m going to do my best to share with you guys some stuff that I found helpful, entertaining or interesting. Enjoy.

First, I was once again featured on Food and Fitness Online, the blog of Tony Paradis. Check out this month’s article 7 Things You Can Do To Get Stronger Right Now

Jedd Johnson teaches you how to set and close a gripper (the right way)

If you’re interested in hand and grip strength, Jedd is your guy. In this video Jedd teaches a simple technique that can help you with closing some difficult hand grippers like the Ironmind Captains of Crush.

Jason Ferruggia gives some valuable tips on keeping your shoulders healthy and strong

As someone who has dealt with a shoulder injury, I’m always on the lookout for info that can help me avoid another one and regain the strength lost from it. This is a 3 part series, with links to all three contained therein.

Another great post from Ferruggia explains why you should avoid sugar

Sugar is rampant in our food supply, with many people believing that it is a direct cause of the skyrocketing obesity rates, diabetes, heart disease and more.

Jim “Smitty” Smith teaches you how to perform the Hang Clean Part I and Part II

Cleans are one of the top exercises I see performed incorrectly, partially because people seem to feel that they are easy to do right. While cleans are definitely less technical than snatches, they still aren’t something you should just up and try to do. Learn to do them correctly and reap their benefits.

Matthew Perryman from Amped Training Discusses CNS Fatigue

This is a GREAT post from Matt where he discusses CNS fatigue, overtraining and the effects of psychology on training results. It’s something that’s going to make you think. Definitely check it out.

And of course in case you missed them:

Squats vs. Deadlifts for Athletes

They’re pretty much the same movement right? Maybe not.


Strength & Conditioning for the Zombie Apocalypse

Because you don’t want to be unprepared.
