It’s been a busy week over here.
I’ve been working on this huge project (more to come soon), so I haven’t had time to write much up.
I did, however, get an email from Thieme publishers about a coupon for my favorite anatomy atlas, Gilroy’s.
The coupon is only valid through Tuesday the 7th, so if you want $30 off this great book, click here to order it through the publisher’s website and then enter the coupon code ATLAS at checkout.
Gilroy’s has some of the best images (blows Netter’s out of the water). If you need better anatomy pictures to look at, this is a great addition to your library.
Just here looking out for my people.
Have a great week!
Here’s a seminar from Precision Nutrition on nutrition coaching.
This video/article offers a good outline of what to do when giving nutrition advice and when to do it. I read the written transcript of the seminar because it was quicker, and I’m glad I did so because I picked up some useful information.
There’s also a link in the article with some tricks on calorie counting worth reading.
Have a great weekend!

Seven Principles of Learning Better From Cognitive Science
In this post, one of my favorite bloggers recaps a book he read by a cognitive psychologist and neuroscientist. This book is now on my “To Buy” list.
Check out this video on debunking learning styles. We would occasionally talk about these when I taught my peers in college, and I was never on board. Recently, I’ve discovered why, and Dan Willingham breaks it down quite nicely. Don’t dwell on feeding your “learning style” when you’re trying to tackle a new subject.
The Learning Myth: Why I’ll Never Tell My Son He’s Smart
This is a must read for parents. There’s a video at the top of that I linked to a few weeks ago, but the writing here is why I’m sharing this post. I love this stuff.
Myokin at IFAST, Part Deux?
I know a lot of you like the PRI stuff, so my great friend, Zac Cupples, just published his write up of the course. Check it out now!
I’ll be working for Jae Chung the next two weeks as he visits Colorado to sleep with the bears (that’s probably all true). I’ll be trying to get in two posts each week like I have been, but if not, you’ll have to forgive me 🙂
I know I say this all the time, but this week was amazing. Here’s a cool video I watched and a little info about a super fun new sport you have to try.
At about the 5:00 mark, the guy making this video below points out the relationship between the transversus abdominis and the diaphragm. The perpendicular fiber direction is crazy. Make sense why you can get so much out of those muscles.
The Beginning of Bubble Soccer
I say “beginning” because this is so fun and I hope to do it again. Brandon Brown, his girlfriend, and I went out to see what all the fuss was about. Check this out:
Holy sweat balls (it’s really hot in that ball), I forgot how much fun contact sports were—especially when you’re playing against a bunch of 110-pound boys. My neck is crazy sore today.

Have a happy Labor Day weekend!
