Weight training for roller derby

March 31st, 2011  |  Published in Stumpblog  |  7 Comments

Years ago, I sat in academic job interviews, and hiring committees made pinchy faces about my publications. Oh sure, I had three books and a crapton of journal articles, but it wasn’t in Such-And-Such Journal or published by So-And-So Publisher.

Too bad that during those interviews, I didn’t have the publication awesomeness that I have now in my hot little hands: An interview in Five On Five magazine — The Official Magazine of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association! Yesssss my life could not get more rockin’!!!

Thanks to Maura Buse from the Boston Derby Dames for a great piece, in which I get to say “crap” about ten times.

    Thanks Stumptuous! I RSS subscribed to this site purely because I play derby, and now I’ve ordered that issue to be delivered to me so I can read your article. Wins all ’round!

    I have just been venn-diagrammed! I was looking forward to reading that article, and I didn’t even realize it was you! I love your site and I love derby. Now I HAVE to get the latest issue.

    Yay, what an amazing coincidence! The day I check back to see what’s new on stumptuous is the day I see this – two weeks after I bought my new skates!

    I’m training right now for tryouts in late summer, can’t wait to read this!

    It’s the most recent issue — go to their website and look for the issue that has weight training for RD in it.

    Kick ass! I was so excited to see your interview in 5 on 5 this issue. I’ve been reading your blog for years. I have already tweaked my workout routine after reading your recommendations. This rollergirl thanks you wholeheartedly!
