Michael Pollan: Food Rules for Healthy People and Planet

It’s been a while since I’ve discussed anything nutrition related here, so I figured I’d throw a bone and post this awesome presentation I came across from Michael Pollan. As you may (or may not) know, Michael Pollan is the author of such works as The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food, and most recently,… Read more

The Best $5 You’ll Ever Spend

When it comes to nutrition, people are confused – and rightfully so. What with several different diet books coming out every week contradicting one another, it’s no wonder people have no idea what to eat. On one end of the spectrum you have books telling us that low-carb is the way to go, and as… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: Novembeard, Sucker Punch, and Future Video Content

Bromance Alert: Dean Somerset

In keeping with the War and Peace sized blog posts this week, I wanted to share an interview I did with fellow strength coach Dean Somerset recently. Not many people know who Dean is – and truth be told, up until a few weeks ago I didn’t either. Long story short, I watched his presentation… Read more

Woe Be Unto Ye Who Contradicts The Glute Master Part II

Note from TG: This whole thing started with two lines: “Women should avoid squats because it makes their inner thighs flabby. Don’t listen to any un-informed professional who says you should be squatting.” I know it may come across as if Bret and I are picking on this woman, but in reality, we’re just fed-up… Read more
