Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 1/7/14
So remember that post I wrote yesterday detailing the best piece of advice I ever received** which then lead to me discussing WeightTraining.com’s release of their new Workout Tracker app, which then me laying down the ground rules for an opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a free TRX?
Well, I lied.
No, I didn’t lie about crushing raw egg-white protein shakes. All the cool kids were doing it back in the day.
And no, I didn’t lie about the overall ass-kickery of the new App by WT.com. It’s been getting glowing reviews thus far!
I actually lied about the cut-off date for your chance to win the TRX.
It’s been extended through TODAY (January 7th).
As a reminder here’s what you have to do:
In order to be entered into the app release giveaway, you must complete the following:
2. Log a workout on January 7th (<– THAT’s TODAY!!!!)
3. Tweet your logged workout to @TonyGentilcore1 (Twitter) or Facebook share your workout with the hashtag #TonyGentilcore on January 7th (<– Again, THAT’s TODAY)
Winners will be randomly selected on January 8th!!!!.
And now onto this week’s stuff to read:
Protein: Can You Eat More Than 30 Grams Per Meal? – Tom Nikkola
In a word: Yes.
This is a very common myth and one that makes my insides hurt from laughing so hard. Sometimes I feel like we don’t give the human body enough credit. That if we somehow haven’t had a morsel of food for more than three hours or if we happen to eat, god-for-bid, a 10 oz steak in one sitting, our body is just going shutdown in a rage of shock, and we’ll start bleeding through eyes.
Relax, people. The body is a lot smarter than us.
5 Reasons Running May Not Help You Lose Weight – Adam Bornstein
Let me preface this by saying: that is NOTHING wrong with running. Well, there is, but I don’t want to get into it here, so save the pitch-forks for next time.
Where things get a bit murky – and where much of the dichotomy begins – is when people are under the impression that running is an efficient way to lose weight. Don’t me wrong: It can be, but there comes a point in time where the amount of effort put forth doesn’t mirror the reward.

He doesn’t write as many blog posts as he used to, but when he does they’re gold.
** = outside of “Dude, go see The Matrix, it’s sick!” (1999, as told from a college teammate), and “Tony, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times, your fly’s open…..zip up your pants!” (1980-2004, by my Mom)
