Happy Friday! Hopefully, everyone had a good week and you are gearing up for some awesome weekend plans. Summer is starting to finally hit its stride, and I have a big week of travelling ahead of me, culminating in my brother-in-law’s wedding in Portland, Oregon. Exciting stuff, since I never have been in another US timezone before, let alone a different coast. While I do all my packing last minute, check out a couple of articles I found interesting and insightful during the past few days:
How To Get Better At Anything – by Dan John – Successful people make goals. Successful people form habits that support their success. But how do you get to a point where an action becomes habit? Start small, and rack up the easy wins.
Is Obesity A Choice? – by Spencer Nadolsky – Rarely is there one true cause or reason for a problem, and obesity is no different. That being said, plenty of people have succeeded despite their circumstances. It just might mean you have a bigger hole to climb out of then someone else. This article definitely makes you think about what you can’t control, but it also makes you think about what you CAN.
Julie Johnston Is The Rising Star As USWNT Progresses In Women’s World Cup – by Michael Cummings My wife is a huge soccer fan, so naturally when I met her, I started watching a lot more soccer. I now can even yell at the TV “nice touch uch!” This is a good story about seizing opportunity when it presents itself. Two injuries happened, and Julie Johnston was the next person up. She has delivered. Support the USWNT tonight, they are playing China in the World Cup! I’ll be watching.
Random Thoughts on Anatomy – by Dean Somerset Dean has been killing it lately, making anatomy more accessible to both trainers and regular people. Dean talks about how slight differences in set up and foot positioning can have a dramatic impact on posture and performance during a lift. This is in contrast to the one size fits all approach that is common in the fitness industry. Also, he uses a picture of my feet! He’s definitely right about me being asymmetrical, since I have FAI and a torn labrum in both of my hips, so internet high five to him!
