I Know Kung-Fu– by Jonathan Fass

He may only post once every blue moon, but when he does, it’s a classic. Here, Jonathan discusses why taking the easy way out or leaning towards the “quick fix” is exactly what you shouldn’t do as it relates to your fitness goals.

CrossFit for Baseball?– by Eric Cressey

I think it’s safe to assume that the vast majority of people who read my blog also read Eric’s blog/newsletter too. As such, while I’m sure many of you have either already read his latest newsletter or about to find it in your inbox (surprise!)- for the select few who haven’t, I highly encourage you to check it out as he discusses the pros and cons of CrossFit.

On an aside (and this is strictly my opinion) this is one of the pros of CrossFit:

That’s about it.

Similarly, here’s an older article written by Chris Shugart on the topic of CrossFit.

Food, Inc: How Industrial Food is Making Us Sicker, Fatter, and Poorer- And What We Can Do About It– edited by Karl Weber

Not too long ago I reviewed the documentary Food, Inc. Coincidentally, as I was perusing the local bookstore a few weeks later (and by perusing the local bookstore, what I really mean is using the free WiFi), I came across the companion book as well. Highlights include chapters by Michael Pollan (Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food), Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation and film co-producer), as well as a chapter by Robert Kenner, the film’s director. Suffice it to say, anyone who’s remotely concerned/interested about the food we put down our pie holes on a daily basis should read this book.

The Importance of Probiotics– Brian St. Pierre

Suffice it to say, digestive health is kind of a big deal. Brian tells you why.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
