The Week in Review – 2.19.10


It’s been a busy couple of weeks.  I spent last weekend at the International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA) Summit, and it was fantastic.  The entire weekend I was surrounded by top notch coaches like Joe Kenn, Brian Grasso, and Jason Ferrugia, nutrition experts like Chris and Kara Mohr, and even business gurus like Pat Rigsby and Nick Berry.

Needless to say, it was a fantastic experience and something I’d highly recommend in the future if you work with young athletes.

Next week I’m on the road again, this time to (hopefully) sunny Los Angeles, California.  I’ll be hanging out with Alwyn Cosgrove at his business seminar, and learning how to take IFAST to the next level.  Should be good times!

Ok, enough rambling – let’s get on with the week in review!

In the Trenches with Mike Roussell

Let me say up front, this is a fantastic interview.

Mike has such a pragmatic, balanced approach to nutrition and I love it.  We cover the spectrum of topics here, including the following:

–       What the lay population does to sabotage their diet and nutrition

–       What you need to do if you’re serious about losing body fat

–       Why the Warp Speed Fat Loss program is so successful

–       Why skinny guys fail to gain weight

–       How to improve the disconnect between diet researchers and those who are practicing in the field.

Awesome, awesome interview guys – definitely check it out!

Just as a heads up, we’re going to take a few weeks of from the Podcast.  I have a newsletter series on shoulders starting next week, and I need some time to pull it together.  It should be good, though!

Crush It vs. The Four-Hour Workweek

You know these books are on the opposite end of the spectrum, but both are fantastic in their own way.  See how I use both to maximize efficiency, while not forgetting about my hustle!

Mastering the Kettlebell Swing

I think kettlebells are a fantastic tool to have in your arsenal, and swings really are the foundational lift.  Check out some of the common flaws I see, as well as how to correct them.

Learning from Ed Coan

Ed Coan is arguably the greastest powerlifter of all time.  See how his tried-and-true methods can help you achieve newfound levels of strength and development.

What Strength Training Methods Work FOR YOU?

5/3/1?  Westside?  Linear periodization?  With all the options, it can confuse just about anyone.  As always, a little trial and error, coupled with finding out what works for you is the best course of action.

That’s it for this week.  Have a great weekend and stay tuned for that shoulder series starting next week!

All the best
