It's Monday and I told you my opinion about this day of the week in my last stuff to read post so I won't waste anymore time explaining that, but I will say that you better not be squandering today because like or not today counts and it will be full of opportunities to grow and succeed and you don't want to miss out on them.

Before getting to this week's list of stuff to read I did want to share with you this great post that Jon Goodman put on Facebook earlier this morning which just had be burning up to get after the rest of my day. I thought maybe it could do the same for you. Click the link to see the rest of the post. You won't regret it.

The World owes you nothing.I hear far too often people complain that they are "too busy". It's pretty simple really....

1. How Powerlifts and Sport(s) Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly by Kelsey Reed

Powerlifts and sports? Who the hell wouldn't wanna read this? Okay that maybe a bit bias and discriminatory of me, but seriously if you don't like lifting weights and have some interest in a sport chances are your in the wrong place to begin with. Just saying.

Anyways this is a great piece my female strength and conditioning coach, Kelsey Reed, that was inspired by her recent dive into Easy Strength by Dan John. It's a great take on the usability of the basic three lifts and fundamental movement patterns to take your game to the next level. Even if that game is just corralling your three year old.

2. Why Do I Have Cellulite by Dr. Cassandra Forsythe

Ah that damn cellulite. I honestly don't know if I have any because I couldn't care less, but I know it does make a lot of women self conscious. But what you may learn from this article is you are giving cellulite more power than you should and you are beating yourself up about something that is largely outside of your control.

3. 4 Ways Lean People Think Lean by Bryan Krahn

Not that I am trying to say I am lean because I am not. My body fat usually hovers around 14% making me average when it comes to body composition, but I think there is a really good message in here about finding a tribe of people who are like minded and immolate how you want to be physically and mentally and spending a lot of time around them.

Happy moving and heavy lifting!
