TRAINING + PROGRAM DESIGN

Tony Gentilcore has done a great service to society by bringing to light this massive problem in the industry: The Single Dumbest Way to Bench Press. I mean this from the bottom of my heart: thank you, Tony and Amen.

Great article on concussions and how to protect our athletes from a program design standpoint.

How - on earth - could I have forgotten about this amazing resource: EliteFTS Exercise Index. Oh, how many hours did I navigate these pages as a young strength coach?

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT + LIFESTYLE

If you own a business that generates less than $5 million in annual revenue, the you MUST read this book by Greg Crabtree. It's a game changer.

One of my big personal goals is to take a long weekend away each quarter ("long" means at least three days to count towards my goal). I'm excited to say that my husband and I are putting the finishing touches on our first getaway! We - wisely, I think - used some of Mark Sisson's tips on designing a successful restorative retreat

FOOD

Well, what do you know! Modern medicine is rethinking the whole allergies and kids thing.

Metabolic disease, intestinal inflammation, and more! Oh, when will we learn. 

THE REST

Have you ever seen a Telepresence Robot? Well, I have! A meeting I attended yesterday had one of our group members call in via that robot. It was so so so cool. The person calling in could actually drive it from the dashboard on his computer.

The birthplace of bouncers.

A little about me: I've worked in pretty much every corner of the fitness industry for about 10 years. I've had the great fortune of spending most of this time working with gifted athletes at every level. I've also had the great opportunity of designing and conducting research projects, writing occasionally for various publications and blogs, competing in powerlifting, and just generally having a killer time pursuing my passions wherever they may take me. Now I own two businesses: one is an athletic performance training company that I started in 2007 at age 26 and the other is a software company startup that was launched in 2014. Paramount to all the awesomeness of my professional career, is my family. My kids are a thrill and my husband continues to be my most critical and important supporter.
