Thoughts for the Day: 11/4

For a team that was missing six of their 11 starters on defense by the end of the game, it didn’t turn out half bad. And how about them Chiefs, eh?

I don’t have a ton of time to write anything substantial today, but I wanted to share a few things that I think you should read. The first one is by Jim Wendler and is one of my favorite recent posts of his.

A lot of his stuff ends up being about 5/3/1 (because he wrote it, obviously), so I enjoy his perspective on life from time to time.

The second article is a post from Mike Reinold from a few weeks ago. Tight hamstrings are a problem that comes up all the time, but a lot of the time the hamstrings aren’t the problem. Anterior pelvic tilt can play a large role in chronically “tight” hamstrings.

On the other hand, a posterior pelvic tilt (as in a flat back or sway back posture) can cause actual tight hamstrings. Read up! (And stop stretching your hamstrings so much.)

I’ve also included a link to a Cressey article about tight hamstrings. His first point is great and compounds on what Reinold says in his article.

Happy Monday!
