Happy New Year! Here are a few good listens and reads to kick off 2020:
Eric Cressey: Fatherhood and Forward Thinking – I was a guest on the Art of Coaching podcast with Brett Bartholomew and really enjoyed it. Here’s the finished product.
When and How Static Stretching Can Actually Work – Dean Somerset kicked off 2020 with an outstanding post that highlights just how challenging it can be to get static stretching to work for you. Hint: set aside a loooooooong time.
Power Moves – I just finished up this quick audiobook by Adam Grant, and it was outstanding. I’d highly recommend it regardless of the industry in which you work. It’s only available as a listen, and I actually think it’s better in this medium than as a book.

The best load management strategy is to actually load in the offseason so that you aren’t a delicate little flower by midseason. I’m not saying there’s no merit to strategic rest; rather, there are a lot of athletes who are fundamentally unprepared for the stress they encounter.
