3 Things Other People Wrote Volume 8

Another week is coming to an end! I hope your week went as well as mine. Some snow dumped on Vermont this week which gave ample time to read up on some great posts and articles!

Here are three things that stood out to me this week…

1) On Training…

The Safety Squat Bar (SSB) has been a tool in our gyms arsenal for the last couple years. Using it, you can tell there is a difference in strength levels from a SSB to a straight bar. But other than anecdotal evidence, there hasn’t been any hard researched- UNTIL NOW! Check this study out!

2) On Business…

One of my emerging platforms for idea generation is Seth Godin’s Blog. Often times I’ll jump on to the site and just click around and read his older blogs (he has soooo much on this site). This article jumped out at me this week- starting an ebook- more so because of how he went about sharing ideas and the ROI he’s found by doing so. Give it a read!

3) On something not related to business OR training….

Ever wonder how athletes transition out of sports? This article on FORBES outlines some cool initiatives that are happening and also highlights some of the CBA provisions that pay for continuing education for active NFL players- pretty cool and something that I didn’t even know existed. Definitely an interesting quick read!



3 Things Other People Wrote- Volume 6


Another week in the books and these three pieces of content have stood out among the rest!

On Training…

Tony Gentilcore deliver’s yet again! Check out Tony’s mini series he’s writing about fillers within his programming. This article dives in to the deadlift and this article dives in to the squat. Don’t think too hard on which one to start with- they both kick ass.

On Business…

Pete Dupuis must be on a mission this year because his writing and social media content has been amazing. Check out this awesome piece he wrote about Team Training and how it may not be the best fit for your training business.

On Nothing Related to Either…

Kind of business, but kind of not. I re-watched Simon Sinek’s TED talk on leadership this week, and man, did it blow me away (again). This is an amazing talk that really makes you assess yourself and leadership strategy.
