Why We Are So Tired, Athletic Development, and the Bench Press
This week’s stuff you should read comes from Eirik Sandvik, Allen Tucker, and Mike Robertson.
The 10 Commandments to Athletic Development
Here is a pretty good article from Eirik Sandvik. First time visiting his site, but was impressed with this article on 10 rules to live by when trying to maximize athletic development.
Allen Tucker just dominates this discussion of sleep quality. It’s obvious he has done some quality research on his own body! I agree with this completely and am always fascinated by maximizing sleep. I myself have come to realize that many of us may have some mild allergies that are also impacting out sleep. I use a HEPA filter and have seen great results.
Wow, Mike Robertson is on FIRE. Hard to follow up his article on deadlifting, but Mike sure does try, this time on the bench press. This is pretty much the resource.
A Call to Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers
As I surf the web looking for articles to read and share, I can’t help but notice that the web is full of strength specialists and not enough rehab specialists. So this is a call to all the PT’s and ATC’s – we need more of you sharing your talent and experience. Write quality content and I’ll do my best to share and promote.
