While my blog reading has been lagging a little bit lately, I was able to read a few gems recently that I wanted to share with you guys. Check them out!
Success Tips From Cressey Performance – by Jay Bonn. This is an excellent piece by Jay about the how successful people in all walks of life (though in this case CP and Precision Nutrition) tend to do things in similar fashions. He finds the common threads among these successful places, and shows how success really boils down to simple actions. Great stuff.
Oblique Strains in Baseball: 2011 Update – by Eric Cressey. I think this one of Eric’s best posts ever. While that is a bold statement as he has written probably close to 1000 blog posts, I found this to be a quick and easy read with tons of really interesting information. While I worked for him for 3 years and know his core training philosophy like the back of my hand, this was an enlightening refresher that applies even if you are not or do not train baseball players.
3. While not an article, I thought I should note that CP client Tim Collins has officially made the Kansas City Royals major league roster. Tim is a 21 year old reliever who went undrafted out of high school. He walked into CP right when I first started as an intern there. He was 18 years old and all 5’5″ and 135lbs throwing mid-80′s. He now stands 5’7″ and 170lbs, and throws low to mid 90′s.
This is a testament to good training, good nutrition (ahem), and Tim’s tremendous work ethic. He practically lived at CP in the off-season, as he would be there the day after his season ended ready to begin anew. I couldn’t be happier for him and wish him all the best this season.
