Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 1/7/14

Share This:

So remember that post I wrote yesterday detailing the best piece of advice I ever received** which then lead to me discussing’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  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:

1. Download the FREE app or you can go to Apple directly and download it HERE.

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.

My Must List: What I Do Everyday – Nate Green

Nate Green wrote a blog post, Nate Green wrote a blog post, Nate Green wrote a blog post.

Nate Green wrote a blog post!!!!!!!!!!!

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… up your pants!” (1980-2004, by my Mom)

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.
