Quick Update

We’re still recovering from all the torrential downpours we had in the Boston area over the weekend. I’ve had to go through at least three detours to and from work this week from all the flooding. On the bright side, though, the rest of the week looks spectacular. Which is to say, SUN’s OUT, GUNS… Read more

Exercises You Should Be Doing: Kettlebell Goblet Squat w/ Pulse

For starters, you can’t discuss the goblet squat without first acknowledging the man who popularized it, Dan John. That said, I really dislike the Smith machine.
