We are mid-way through another great week. For me its been a week full of relaxation and peace with no school to worry about and plenty of time to pursue other passions it has been most enjoyable. I have had a large amount of time to catch up on the mountain of articles, studies, and books in my "things to read folder" and so I am passing along some of the gems I have come across in the last couple of days. Give them a look see. Hope you enjoy!
A really fun read from Tony Gentilcore about his recent experience in the world of pilates. It is awesome to see guys that I look up to getting out of their comfort zone and stepping out of their box because it inspires me to do the same. I think this is an absolute must if you wish to continue growing as a person.
I am a firm believer that the most important things someone can do everyday is devote 15mins to their health in some way or another. I loved this article with video demonstrating four mobility drills that will improve your quality of life greatly if practiced once a day. Another great things about this read is it is located on the new Arnold Schwarzenegger website. Its awesome that he is back in the fitness game. While your their on the site give it a look around.
Another great article of experienced fitness professional Bret "The Glute Guy" Contreras. This piece discusses everything and anything to do with the Hip Thrust. I love using the hip thrust with clients who experience excess anterior pelvic tilt. Its also a great move for developing the glutes and maintaining lumbar spine stability during hip extension. Plenty of video helps you visualize what Bret is getting at with his words. Excellent read I implore everyone to read thoroughly.
