Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 9/6/2011

Share This:

I literally just got back from Martha’s Vineyard this afternoon…………yes, it was fantastical.  I spent two days doing nothing but taking power naps, eating dead animal flesh, catching up on some reading, and making fun of all the dudes on the island who wore sweater vests.

Anyways, it’s back to reality, and because I was away for the extended holiday weekend (and subsequently, Lisa forbade me from bringing my laptop with me), I skipped out on posting anything yesterday.  Sorry.  But, because I love my readers so much – and because I didn’t want to leave you hanging for two straight days – here’s a little sumthin sumthin to keep you occupied until tomorrow.


Top Personal Trainer Successes – Jon Goodman

Fellow colleague, Jon Goodman, went around and asked a bunch of other fitness professionals (including some dude named Gentilcore) “what traits helped make you successful?”  The answers, as you can only assume, are pretty diverse.

Three Methods of Intermittent Fasting – Nia Shanks

Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries concerning my thoughts on intermittent fasting.  For those who have no idea what the heck I’m talking about, it’s essentially a fairly hard-core way of dieting that is generally performed in one of three ways:

  • 24 hour fasts one to two times per week
  • Daily 14-16 hour fasts
  • Daily partial fasts for 20 hours with one big meal

In the post above, Nia drops some MAJOR knowledge bombs and breaks down each scenario.  If intermittent fasting is something you’re interested in and/or is something you’ve been contemplating, I’d highly recommend reading this first.

What We Can Learn From Steve Jobs – Mike Reinold

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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.
