On the week of June 18, the National Track & Field Championships were held in Moncton, New Brunswick. I was here with our group from Edmonton and was fortunate to have a little downtime throughout the week. Because of this, I was able to get in a little continuing education time.
That same week Mike Reinold and Eric Cressey also released their Functional Stability Training for the Lower Body as a follow up to their Functional Stability Training for the Core so naturally it was an easy fit.
It's quite a lengthy program - I have yet to get through it all - but I was able to jot some notes down along the way. This summary was a culmination of several updated posts.
