Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 8/17/12

I’m in a bit of a rush this morning because like an idiot I waited until the last minute to pack. A bunch of us guys are heading up to Maine for the weekend for Pete’s bachelor party where the plan is to go white water rafting, eat copious amounts of dead animal flesh, and arm wrestle a grizzly bear (or two).

It’s going to be an awesome time for sure, and given I’ve never gone rafting before, it should be pretty entertaining too.

Here’s some stuff to check out I think you’ll enjoy.

7 Reasons Why You Didn’t Lose Weight Going Gluten Free – Dr. Brooke

Gluten free is all rage lately.  I even saw a commercial on television the other day

where Kellogs (the food conglomerate) were bragging about their “gluten free” cereal line.

You know, as if eating gluten free Apple Cinnamon Chex (with 13 grams of sugar per serving) was somehow magically healthier for you.

In this article, Dr. Brooke breaks it down to common sense as to why gluten free isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Well, more specifically, the food industry is just shady.

The Hip Hinge – Sohee Lee

Here’s a fantastic article by current CP intern, Sohee Lee, on anything and everything that is the hip hinge: why it’s important, how to “groove” it, and why it will not only save your back, but increase your overall level of awesomeness by like ten points, too.  Who knew!?!?!

Muscle Imbalances Revealed – Assessment and Exercise

I know I said I was going to review ALL the presentations this week, but with Lisa coming home from Europe I kinda slacked in that department.  SORRY!!!!!!!

Nevertheless, I did watch the entire thing and was blown away with the amount of information that all the presenters gave.  And, not to play favorites, Anthony Mychal’s presentation was probably my favorite – especially the whole part on the importance of training the foot tripod.

Anyways, today is the last day to purchase the latest installment for the sick introductory price of $37.  Trust me, that’s a steal.

Okay, I’m out.  Wish me luck that I don’t fall out of the raft.

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.
