The air is cool and crisp in Baltimore, Maryland, and I already see white girls walking around in oversized sweaters with pumpkin spice lattes in hand.
Yep. It’s almost Fall. Or “White Girl Season,” if you will.
With that said, enjoy the first long weekend of the season.
Before I get into this week’s readings, check this out:
I’m writing a book. *cue music from Jaws*
Though scary, this has been a project I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while. No, it won’t be as elegant as a Tolkien novel. Nor will it be as nerdy as a phD disseration.
Safe to say, it will be somewhere in between, with a plethora of dragon-based references.
So what will I be writing on? Here’s a spoiler:
It will be an eBook *gulp* that I plan to release in 2018 for coaches, soccer players, strength coaches, and anyone who wants to support my monthly car insurance payments. ;-O
I’m beyond excited, especially because youth training is my wheelhouse. Stay tuned for more updates and giveaways.
This Week’s Readings
The Best Way To Build A Better Butt – T Nation
There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Check out several ways how to build a booty. In fact, one that will knock Trump out of the White House.
Coaching: Sometimes You Might Not Be A Good Fit – Meghan Callaway
I. Love. This. Even if you’re a stellar coach, or someone who has worked with clients for several years, some people aren’t a fit.
More often than not, some people just want a cheerleader, instead of someone who will call them on their bullshit and actually coach.
In fact, I declined to train a man last week because he expected me to count his reps. What did I do? I ran the other direction.
For someone who hears “athlete burnout” on a regular basis, I figure it’s time to recommend a new sports psychology book.
Especially in the realm of youth athletics, kids are busy with multiple sports, team practices, tournaments, and camps. Give this a read if you want to avoid burnout and let your kid be a kid.
