Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending to Work: One vs. Two Legs, Barefoot Training, and Deadlift Troubleshooting
Just a quick reminder: you only have until tonight (12/10) at midnight to save 20% on Jim Smith’s Accelerated Muscular Development 2.0. After that, the price goes up and you’ll be sad.
Smitty has gone of his way to provide one of the most comprehensive programs I’ve ever come across. It’s so comprehensive, in fact, that I’ve grown an extra ab since the start of this post. It’s that good.
In all seriousness, it is a fantastic resource and you’d be insane not to take advantage of this great offer.
On that note, here’s some stuff you should read cause I said so:
One Leg vs. Two Legs: Why Is It Always a Battle – Kevin Carr
Whether we’re debating over steady state cardio being a complete waste of time or not, or when’s the optimal time to eat your carbs, or even arguing over the efficacy of single leg vs. two-legged training; the answer, more often than not, usually lies right smack dab in the middle.
The Importance of Barefoot Training – Martin Rooney
Here’s an excellent article by Martin Rooney on why we should get out of our shoes more often. Putting it succinctly, our feet are the only part of our body that’s in constant contact with the ground. Why, then, do we feel the need to always wear shoes? We don’t walk around wearing gloves all the time do we?
Sometimes a 90% Fat Diet is Good For You – Meredith Melnick
It’s amazing to me how we’re so quick to revert to drugs to fix an issue, when if we would just take the time to eat more real, whole, nutritious foods, we’d wouldn’t have to take them in the first place! Of course, there are exceptions to the rule, but it’s absurd to me that people are so quick to poo-poo on this notion that fat is bad for you.
Either way, great article that I think will get some people thinking.
On an aside, for those interested, I’d highly recommend Lyle McDonald’s The Ketogenic Diet for a more thorough look into the dynamics of this type of diet. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the effort involved, but the book goes into extensive detail on fat metabolism in general.
Deadlift Troubleshooting – by the sexiest bastard this side of the Mississippi River<———HINT: that’s me!
Bringing back a little old school flavor; here’s a post from two years ago I came across that I thought I’d share (again).
