Exercises You Should Be Doing: Natural Glute Ham Raise

Things have been crazy busy at CP the past few days with Eric out of town (READ: I’ve totally been rocking the techno in his absence), and I wasn’t really planning on blogging about anything in particular when I got home tonight. To be honest, I wasn’t even planning on doing anything other than answering… Read more

Stuff I’m Reading, Have Read, or Going to Read. I’m Smart

Straight Talk About High Fructose Corn Syrup: What It is and What It Ain’t (Research Review)- Lyle McDonald This may come as a surprise considering my past ramblings on the topic, but Lyle does make some great points in this research review.

Q and A: Do Washboard Abs Fix Anterior Pelvic Tilt?

Q: My bodyfat is about 9% (plainly visible abs, but a distended gut clouds this when in a t-shirt). I have been working furiously on my posterior chain to help fix my anterior pelvic tilt.

Meat Eaters Are Killing the Environment?

I’m posting this blog a bit later that usual, but it’s for a damn good reason. Normally I write my blogs in the morning. However, after finding out that Star Wars in Concert is coming to Boston for a two show (same day) event next weekend, I spent the bulk of my morning on Ticketmaster… Read more

“You can’t run to get fit, you need to be fit to run.”

This is a quote that I “stole” from Mike Boyle whom I am sure “stole” it from someone else (I think it was Diane Lee actually). The fact of the matter is, most (read: not all) people shouldn’t be running (especially women). What’s the first thing that women do to get into shape? They hightail… Read more
