Shared Wisdom: January 12, 2013

It’s been 7 months since I last posted, but it would create a silly-large list to post everything good I’ve seen since then.  Instead, I’ll just give a recent recap.

If You Can Only Read One:

Keeping Women Down (Brandon Morrison, LBEB) – Really stellar article on the male psychology that keeps women weak.  Weak men demand weak women.  Must read for everyone (male and female).

Best Of The Rest

3 Steps to Getting Your Girl to Train (Joy Victoria via T-Nation) – Good tips from a strong (powerlifter) lady.  Also, she’s proof that you can be super strong (600+ lb powerlifting total) and super feminine.

 8 Reasons Why You Should Lift Heavier Weights (Charlotte Andersen via Shape) – Nothing revolutionary here but good to see this in a mainstream, pink-dumbbells sort of publication.  The truth will get out there!

Everyone’s Goal for 2013: Train With A Purpose (Tony Gentilcore) – Just showing up isn’t enough.  Train with intent.

Do I Look Fat? (Jen Comas Keck) – Jen is spot on in re-framing how we talk about diet and exercise around our kids.

Warm-Up (Mike Robertson) – Really good article on the principles of a good warm up, plus a sample.

MAC Cosmetics ‘Strength’ Advertisement Uses Muscular Female Model In Non-Insulting, Beautiful Manner - Well done, MAC.  Also, excellent choice in models (Jelena Abbou)

(For the record, I don’t encourage this type of thing as a workout, and her form isn’t that great on some exercises.  Still, it’s extremely impressive and great motivation.)
