Off to Indy!

This is going to be really quick (but just so everyone knows, this is the third day in a row that I have blogged…..score!!!!), since I’m leaving for the weekend to visit Mike Robertson and Bill Hartman in Indianapolis. I’ll be spending most of my time at their facility, I-FAST observing and watching them train… Read more

How to Fix Shin Splints (Witty Title, I Know)

I have a friend who’s attempting to join the FBI later this year, and unfortunately, one of the tests she has to pass is a timed 1.5 mile run. To prepare, she’s been running like a bat out of hell lately, and of course, her shins are banged up as a result. Anyone who has… Read more

Registered Dietician Says Something About Something. As Usual, They’re Wrong.

A reader of my blog (thanks Courtney) sent me a link to this article from MSN Health & Fitness a few days ago titled “9 Fitness Rules You Should Break”. According to her, it’s designed for maximum eye-stabbage, and I couldn’t agree more. I think I counted at least 37 things in the article that… Read more

Operation NEPA (Not to be Confused with Operation JAWBMOYSWBM*)

I read an article by my good friend Leigh Peele not too long ago which talked about the role that NEAT/NEPA play in our daily lives. For those not in the know: NEAT: Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis NEPA: Non-Exercise Physical Activity Both are essentially the same thing, and can range anywhere from gently tapping your foot… Read more

Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones……..

Normally I don’t go out of my way to address this kind of stuff, but well, I just couldn’t resist. Plus, I’m in a bad mood since I’m already getting my ass handed to me in our CP bracket pool (goddammit Binghamton!!!!!!)so whatever. Q: Alright Big Tony! I read your article on and the… Read more

Gentilcore-ism: The Written Word of Tony Gentilcore

Tony Gentilcore is one of my favorite guys in the industry. Not only does he consistently deliver some of the most cutting edge training and diet info you will find anywhere, but he delivers it in a “spit-coffee-all-over-your-laptop” hilarious way. I have decided to collect a few bites from some of Tony’s pieces over the… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday (Omnivore’s Dilemma, A New Podcast, and I Can’t Find My Camera Adapter)

Alright, better late than never. It’s still technically Monday, so I have some time to get a blog in. Just so everyone knows, I just spent the better half of the weekend berating Kevin Larrabee for admitting that he’s never watched Pulp Fiction. The dude has watched every Jason Statham movie ever made (which isn’t… Read more

Stuff You Should Be Doing, But Aren’t

While I’d like to sit here and tell you that this is going to be some advanced article on program design, in reality, it isn’t (well, at least for some of you). I’m not going to reveal some secret quasi-functional, homeostatic overreaching, Eastern Bloc pyramid mesocycle you’re missing out on. Nor am I going to… Read more
