This week’s stuff you should read comes from Conditioning Research, Patrick Ward, and Dean Somerset.
One of my favorite internet authors, Patrick Ward, has a great article on the parasympathetic nervous system and trying to crack the code on how to help benefit people. I like his manual therapy approach to the topic.
Conditioning Research has a nice post discussing the myth of stretching the ITB for iliotibial band syndrome. I couldn’t agree more.
Dean Somerset wrote a nice article on his off days. Two things really stood out to me in this article: 1) That Angry Birds pic made me laugh out loud, love it. 2) His graphs on staying ahead of the curve are well said. I full intend on stealing both, Dean… with proper credit and your permission of course!
