Shared wisdom two weekends in a row?!?! What’s going on?! I know – I’ve been garbage at posting regularly. The next few weeks are looking less hectic than, oh, the entire summer, so hopefully blog conditions will improve.
It is football season though… I guess it’s a good thing I don’t have cable anymore.
- Combating The Effects Of Your Desk, Part 4 - In this fourth and final installment, we talk about resistance training strategies to counteract the effects of your desk (see also parts 1, 2, and 3)
- Down on Lumbar Flexion in Strength Training Programs? Enter the Reverse Crunch. (Eric Cressey) – Good replacement for crunches for people who just can’t give up flexion-based core training.
- Mistakes Skinny Guys Make: Eating Like an Olsen Twin (Tony Gentilcore) – Quite a long one from Tony on getting hyoooge. “Can’t” gain weight? Eat bigger. Shut up. (I am guilty of this too).
- Onions: A Real Superfood (Dr. Jonny Bowden) – Never really thought about onions having much in the way of nutrients. Oops. Sorry, onions.
- Our McGill, Who Art in Waterloo, “Hollow” Ain’t His Game (Dean Somerset) – Despite the weird title, this article is a very good comparison of two core training philosophies (drawing-in vs not, basically). Turns out drawing-in is great in a post-injury setting, but rarely otherwise.
- My Thoughts On CrossFit (Harold Gibbons) – I don’t even know how I found this, but I enjoyed it. Similar to my own thoughts on Crossfit.
