Here we go again! Another week is upon us and I hope for you that means five days worth of opportunities to be better and make progress.

I'm already on that! PR Alert!!!

That is the heaviest double I've ever pulled and that goes back before my si injury a little more than a year ago.

Now it's your turn! Go hit a PR this week whether it be in the weight room, at work, or at home. Just do something this week that you haven't done before.

Besides that I do want to share with you a couple of recommendations on things to watch before we get to our list of things to read.

A band that I have become quite a uber fan of over the last couple years is Blue October and I actually had the chance to see them in concert the day after my wedding.

Don't be offended. He is literally flipping off the old him.

It was awesome! And one of the best experiences I've ever had.

That being said you can have the experience to in a way because they just released their live concert film Things We Do At Night and it's available on iTunes and Amazon.

If you like music that gets you right in the feels and you can rock out too then you gotta check it out!

In addition to that I started another binge watch show on Amazon prime that I guess was actually a pretty big deal on HBO called Boardwalk Empire. I'm still in the first season, but definitely a great show. However I'm warning you it is an adult show and does have some pretty graphic content. If that doesn't offend you then I'd highly recommend giving it a go.

Now let's talk about stuff to read.

1. 2 Squat Cues That Pretty Much Work For Everyone by Tony Gentilcore

Everyone could stand to squat better and a large part of making that happen is having the prerequisite mobility AND the correct cues.

Tony gives us two that I agree you just can't go wrong with.

2. The RFS Guide to Cold Weather Conditioning by Bob Thompson

When the cold weather sets in some of the best conditioning options we have are sometimes ruled out depending on where you train and the equipment you have access too.

In this piece Bob gives us a really great system that allows us to continue conditioning through the winter months.

3. Is Moderation Really All It's Cracked Up To Be by Jen Comas

I love this one because I think it's a conversation I go back and forth with myself both professionally and personally. I think Jen gives it a unique exploration.

Happy moving and heavy lifting!
