Stuff You Should Read: Training and Recovery

Today I wanted to share a few articles I’ve read over the last few weeks that I think you’ll enjoy. As a quick reminder, today is the last day to grab a copy of Mike Boyle’s new Functional Strength Coach 5 for $50 off and win a free copy of his newest book Functional Strength Coach Reader. He’s also doing a live group video Q&A with everyone that orders so if you’re at all interested in FSC5, now’s your chance to grab a copy at a significant discount and get a bunch of other cool stuff too.

Check out the articles below that cover a wide range of topics from breathing to off-ice hockey testing to coaching like Bruce Springsteen. I especially liked the sauna article, as we just got a far infrared sauna for Endeavor. It’s nice to see the research-supported benefits of sauna use hitting the mainstream. Enjoy!

  1. Diaphragmatic Breathing: Implications in an Exercise Program and On-Field Performance from Miguel Aragoncillo
  2. 5 Things I Learned in 2013 from Anthony Donskov
  3. What do Off-Ice Hockey Tests really test? from Maria Mountain
  4. Are Saunas the Next Big Performance-Enhancing “Drug”? from Rhonda Perciavalle Patrick, Ph.D
