Hi, Charlie. I recognize that your time is highly in demand, and as such, you only have so much time to fire off blog posts, but perhaps you could start a series where you periodically highlight some of the less commonly encountered elements that you include in your programs, basically the things that are now common to you but may be quite new to the fortunate, albeit it relatively inexperienced, folks who were directed toward your excellent website.
It would be great to hear your thoughts behind some of these , as well as the why behind their use, so that we might see why they are a good fit for you at any given time, but also when they may be indicated for our own use or with those we train.
On a semi-related note, the lat stretch in the cage/lateral line mentions got me wondering if there are any resources you recommend for someone who wants to learn more about how to most effectively implement stretching into a program for areas and times when it is warranted. This seems to be one area fraught with myth and misinformation, often leading to two extremes- one of being ultimately dumbed down too much and the other being arcane and ultimately ineffectiverelative to some of the claims being made.
