Stuff You Should Read

Breathing and Stress Relationship, and the Neuroscience of DOMS

This week’s Stuff You Should Read comes from Mike Robertson and Conditioning Research.


Inner Circle and Update

We had a great Inner Circle webinar on 5 Tips on Preventing Little League Injuries earlier in the week.  This is a big topic for me, so I enjoyed discussing.  I will get a recording up of the webinar sometime soon.   Use information like this to help educate the youth athletes, parents, and coaches and help reduce the 3.5 million youth sports injuries per year!

Next month’s webinar will be on strategies to enhance balance of the upper and lower trapezius.  Upper trap dominance is a pretty common finding that really causes a boatload of shoulder, neck, and upper back issues.  I don’t have a date yet but will work on one and announce soon.

I’m also going to be giving away 2 free DVDs this month to Inner Circle members, one of Optimal Shoulder Performance and the other Functional Stability Training for the Core.  Check your email next week for details.  If you want to be eligible for the free DVDs, please be sure to join my Inner Circle by the end of this week.  Also, members please make sure you are signed up to receive Inner Circle updates, it is different from my usual newsletter.  You can find a link to make sure you are signed up at the Inner Circle Dashboard.
