Book Review + Richmond Seminar

In 2010, I had the good fortune to go out for a steak dinner with Dr. Michael Yessis. This was pretty much insane, because the entire time, I was sitting there, like, “I’m eating steak and drinking beer sitting next to Dr. Yessis. This guy basically knows where ALL the bodies are buried.”

So, picture the scene. Dr. Yessis is sitting at the head of a rectangular table. At his left hand was me. At his right was Jason Pegg. Pegg sits there for about two minutes, then reaches into his pocket, pulls out can of Copenhagen (or Skoal...not sure what he was into back then), puts in a dip, and starts spitting into his water glass.

I wish I had a video of Dr. Yessis staring at this and coming to the sudden realization that he definitely HADN’T seen it all.

Anyway, Dr. Yessis has put out a revised version of his masterwork in the area of biomechanics, where he’s essentially been among the world’s best for the past...50 years or so? It’s called Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise, and it’s basically a compendium of Doc’s knowledge and research in the area, covering anatomy, physics, and everything else associated with human movement.

I have a copy right in front of me that I’ve been studying for the past week, and this thing is pretty amazing. For the realm of biomechanics, it explains virtually everything you need to know about the way the human body moves.

It’s also published by Yosef Johnson’s Ultimate Athlete Concepts, which means this is a professionally produced, high quality product that should have a prominent place on the shelf of any coach, trainer, or AT. Doc and Yosef have put out a phenomenal product here, and I highly recommend it.

Purchase using the link above, or, if you’re at the CVSPS seminar in Richmond this weekend, stop by, say hello to Yosef (and me, because I’ll probably in the back of the room hanging out with him to avoid socializing), and offer him a frankfurter. You’ll be happy you did.

Also, if you're in the area, the CVSPS seminar in Richmond will be happy to take walk-ins, so you should definitely come if you want to learn some shit. Jay DeMayo could use your support. He has a rough life.
