Hey slayers, hope you’ve all had a fun filled week and were able to slay the most out of it!
I have a few exciting things that I want to share with you!
1. I’m in the works of developing my first digital product
Yes, you heard that! I’m in the current works of developing an online digital product that is geared towards injury prevention and rehabilitation of the lower back. The product will be half written form (ebook) and half digital form (exercise video’s). Right now, I’ve already written over 60 pages that involves everything from my personal story to common misconceptions, exercises to avoid, to people that I’ve worked with. Additionally, what I’m most excited for and I think will benefit the most is the exercise video portion. I’m in the process of shooting over 125 exercise video tutorial’s that involves everything from progressions to regressions to how to deadlift correctly. This baby is going to be fucking awesome I guarantee you that. I want to over deliver on this.
2. I’m killing it on snapchat
When I say I’m putting my best content out on Snapchat, I mean I am. My Snapchat is currently on fire, and I highly recommend you get on there and follow me!!
Now, onto some of my recommended readings:
Effects of Sprint Training With and Without Weighted Vest on Speed and Repeated Sprint Ability in Male Soccer Players
While, not everyone may have access to this journal article, this abstract alone is pretty impressive. Primarily, researchers found that sprint training with a weighted vest did not further improve speed in soccer players when compared to sprint training without a vest. Takeaway: You can get the same improvements in speed without loading one up and increasing the ground reaction forces. Good for injury prevention and my research soon to be released has something similar to say 😛
Social Media Highlights
If you have lower back pain, specifically disc related problems (e.g., schmorl's node, herniated disc, bulging disc, degenerative disc), then exercise in the morning would probably be in your be interest to avoid. Higher bending stresses in the morning due to diurnal changes.
