We Get These Questions a Lot
Where do these articles come from?
We are subscribers to numerous academic and scientific journals which publish articles on topics of interest to coaches and athletes. We curate the best of them for ReadingWOD. (We only include publicly available information. We don't share anything from behind pay walls).
Who chooses the articles?
Why two articles? What if I want more?
We send detailed presentations of actual experiments and conclusions, as well as expert analysis of the results. You’ll probably read them several times and refer back to them often. By sending two per week, you’ll receive a constant stream of high quality information without being overwhelmed. If you want more, we certainly won't stop you from doing more research on your own. But we think two articles per week is a good bit of information to digest and incorporate into your skill set.
Do I need a degree in biochemistry to read this stuff?
Nope. Our curriculum is designed for coaches and fitness enthusiasts, not medical students. As long as you have a rudimentary understanding of fitness, you’re ready to get started. Some of the terminology and ideas will be new to you, and you may have to look up some things at times. That's how learning occurs. Generally, if you have a Level 1, or hang around people who do, you’ve got enough background to get started.
Can’t I just do this myself?
Sure, you can. But we’ve done a ton of work assembling thousands of articles, and the list is growing every day. Instead of duplicating our effort, you can benefit from it for under 50 cents a day. If you're a coach or gym owner, the cost may even be tax-deductible!
