Strength and Conditioning Stuff You Should Read: 2/12/13

Written on February 11, 2013 at 11:07 pm, by Eric Cressey

Happy Valentine’s Day Week! While I love all my readers and appreciate your support, I won’t get all sappy on you today.  Instead, our recommended strength and conditioning reading will focus on getting jacked and crushing good food.  What’s not to love?

Strength Training Program: What to Do If You Can’t Squat Deep – This was a guest blog I wrote over at Men’s Health earlier this week. If you don’t have the mobility to squat deep, don’t worry; I’ll give you some alternatives to ensure that your lower body strength training doesn’t suffer.

Limit Protein to 20g Per Meal? – This is an old blog post from Dr. John Berardi, but I’ve had two separate athletes ask me about whether the body can only “handle” a certain amount of protein at each meal.  As such, I thought it’d be a good time to reincarnate this excellent write-up.

Smart Overhead Pressing – This was a great post at T-Nation by Dean Somerset.  If more people would follow progressions like this before jumping into overhead pressing, we’d have a lot fewer shoulder injuries in the weight training population.

    Eric, usually I like anything from Precision Nutrition but I’m not sure I agree with John Berardi on this one. The two studies he uses don’t paint the whole picture. His first study uses protein shakes that were measured over 4 hours, and the second study he references use lean meat and measured over 5 hours. Many meals still aren’t digested after 5 hours (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10331398) so I’m not sure if I agree that only 20-30g of protein is getting absorbed. Meal composition, rate of absorption, types of protein, etc. all change how much total protein is absorbed.
