New Podcast with Eric Cressey and Mike Reinold

In the Trenches, Episode 28

As you’re about to see, this week is going to be a bit different than most.

To start with, I’m putting a podcast on the main page – which I rarely if (ever do).  It’s with two of the smartest guys I know – Eric Cressey and Mike Reinold.  In this podcast, they discuss shoulder training, how elbows get injured, and why throwing hard/fast isn’t the only key to being a successful pitcher.

You can find the podcast link below:

(EDIT: For the time being, you won’t be able to download this from iTunes.  I’m working on getting this fixed as we speak.)

However, the podcast was so good I wanted to take it a step further.  For the rest of this week, I have four Q&A questions for Mike and Eric, and I’ll post one question/answer each day.  They might get a little heavy on the science/anatomy side of things, but I think it’s not only pertinent, but important to learn this stuff.

Stay tuned for a great week!

Stay strong
