An Athlete’s Approach to Optimal Eating

I’ve had a great run of weekly guest posts from various people in the fitness world as of late, and I wanted to keep the streak going with another one from Nate Miyaki.

Supplement Review: Supplements That Suck, Supplements That Work, and Supplements That Are Underrated Part I

Photo Credit: Huffington Post The topic of supplements is about as controversial as they come – right up there with homeland security, government deficit spending,  global warming, that silly ban on big gulp sodas in NYC, and trying to figure out who the best Spice Girl was back in the day.

Just Be Compliant!

This past summer my girlfriend, all of you know her as She-Ra Lisa, went to Europe for a month as a present to herself for surviving 6+ years of school, defending her dissertation, and finally becoming a doctor! In the middle of June, she headed to Germany to meet up with her good friend, Leslie, who’s… Read more
