Tons of great stuff this week! The “Internet Whore of the Week” award obviously goes to Eric Cressey – unless you’ve been in hiding in a cave then you know he released his new eBook called “Show and Go.” Somehow Eric conducted dozens of interviews and kicked ass in every one of them. Eric is the real-deal. Smitty from the Diesel Crew created a cool exercise index based off of his numerous Youtube videos. Surprisingly I picked an article off Dr. Mercola’s site as the “Article of the Week.” Here are 126 links for your reading/viewing/listening pleasure.
9. It’s great to see women training hard. In this video, Kellie Davis does: 135 lb 5 rep front squat, 90 lb 20 rep walking lunges, 155 lb 20 rep deadlift, 245 lb 5 hip thrust, 60 lb 10 rep back extension, 26 rep ab wheel roll out (I told Kellie to get her arms outside of her legs when she deadlifts and she’ll be even stronger and reduce the load on her low back)
