I’ve decided to get on the bandwagon of posting some of the things I have been thinking about and have done during the past week in addition to my coaching responsibilities. I will try and update every Friday. So here it goes:
1- The P90X may be the best workout system that I have seen advertised on television (Perfect Pull Up is second). A few of my friends have started the program. What I like about it is the organization of the program and most importantly, you are required to move. Although, I don’t think I would use it with my athletes, I think it is great for people who need a regimented routine.
2- I read the book Crush It- Why Now is the time to cash in on your Passion, by Gary Vaynerchuck. I actually finished it in a day. I really like the concepts described in the book to help utilize social media. What I also really like is the fact that the author explains that by having a passion for something and applying hard work, you can see positive results. Kind of a breath of fresh air to read a book where they promote hard work. I’ve actually taken action on a few of the tips in the book.
3- Strength Coach and friend, Mike Boyle, has released his Functional Strength Coach 3.0. I got mine yesterday and watched the first dvd last night. As usual, Mike has done it again by releasing a great product. It seems like Mike is always one step ahead when it comes down to program design implementation and progression. I look forward to watching the rest of them.
4- On T-muscle this week, there was another great article called “Bigger, Better, Faster, Longer” featuring an interview with Dan John. Dan is a really good writer and seems to be an even better coach.
5- Speaking of Mike Boyle, check out this funny video Anthony Renna put together.
That’s it. Let me know what you think. Have a great weekend.
