Today is considered a “left brain” day.
As outdoor soccer season ramps up, I’ll be spending a lot more time on the field coaching, teaching, and thinking logically. You know, left brain shenanigans.
Not that I don’t think logically, but I tend to be more of a “right brain” type who creates on the fly, whether that is through writing, social media content, silly strength progressions for my athletes, or DJ-ing on our sound system.
Here are today’s readings for your left brain:
100 Reasons to Deadlift – Tyler Read
I can’t name one thing that the deadlift doesn’t do.
These 100 reasons are legit, especially this one: “The deadlift is the only exercise that can make you pass out, vomit or bleed from your nose. But those things don’t matter as long as you get the weight up.”
Any article on youth early specialization is going to raise some eyebrows.
If you’re a parent or coach, give this a read. Spoiler alert: kids. need. time. off.
Conversations with God – Neale Donald Walsch
Far from being a book on religion, Conversations with God invites people to find their own meaning in life.
Now this isn’t me bashing religion. I actually am open to all forms of it. What this comes down to is people finding what propels them to truly become the best versions of themselves, and this may shift over the course of a lifetime. Change = the only constant, right?
This book certainly was the impetus for my journey. Enjoy.
Soccer Fitness – Chest Dugger
Chest simplifies youth fitness for soccer, a topic that tends to get overcomplicated.
If you need specific drills, exercises and videos to take fitness to the next level, this book is for you.
On a side note: I’m writing a similar eBook to release this November. It’s going to be legit.
If you’re interested in a product like this, let me know. It is for parents, coaches and youth players. No curse words, don’t worry. ;-O
