First off, Happy Halloween to everyone, I hope your weekend treated you well. Today, I would like to introduce my first edition of “Articles & Videos You Should See” – a weekly roundup of articles, videos, and any other material I believe may be beneficial to other strength & conditioning professionals and their athletes.
How to Prevent Pitching Injuries – a Scientific Approach – While I disagree with the title (it’s impossible to prevent sports injuries, you can only hope to reduce their likelihood or severity)
Sandbags for Strength – I’m a big fan of sandbag (and sandbell) training and Matt Palfrey does a good job of detailing some of the benefits and common complaints associated with this method of training.
Creating an Effective, but Imbalanced Strength and Conditioning Program – Technically a webinar, but still qualifies as a video to me. Eric Cressey has begun releasing webinars with fantastic content and I’d recommend viewing this one while it’s still free.
Stuff That Must Have Happened – This is a new video series by my favorite non-sports/training site, Cracked.com. Their articles and lists are always a good laugh, and I think they are off to a good start with this video series (they’ve released two so far, and both have been hilarious). Just a fair warning – not all of the content on the site is appropriate for everyone, some inappropriate language and references, but nothing I’ve seen as extremely insulting.
Hopefully you enjoy and pick something up from the above links. If you find anything in the next week you would like to be listed, please let me know by sending me an email.
As always, if I can ever be of assistance to you or your program, please feel free to contact me.
All the best,
Drew Henley, CSCS, USAW
