Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 6/30/14

Not to rub it in or anything, but as this post is going live I’m in route heading to Cancun, Mexico for a week of: A.  Vitamin D intoxication B.   Poolside reading C.   Crushing fresh guacamole and chips.

The Rule of 90%: 2.0

The rule of 90% can be applied to almost anything. One of the best examples, with special emphasis to health and wellness, stems from Dr. John Berardi and the crew over at Precision Nutrition. Simply stated, if you eat “clean” or follow the rules 90% of the time, good things tend to happen. By focusing the… Read more

Do Assessments “Need” to Be New and Exciting?

I’ve been doing a lot more traveling this past year.  Some for pleasure, mostly for work, but sometimes I’m fortunate and get to combine the two which is always cool. In the past two months alone I’ve been to Cortland, NY (which doesn’t really count since that’s basically my home town), Fargo, North Dakota, and… Read more

Before we get to Part 2 of James’ guest post from yesterday, a few things: 1.  You should read Part 1 if you haven’t already.

How to Maintain Deadlift Strength

I received an interesting question from a reader the other day on deadlifts, particularly 1RM (1 rep max) deadlifts. And since I get all giddy like a school girl at a One Direction concert whenever someone brings up the topic, I figured I’d share my answer here on my website since I’m sure it’s a… Read more

What The Princess Bride Can Teach You About Dealing With Critics

Behind deadlifting and eating carrot cake my next most favorite thing to do in the world (that’s PG-13 enough to discuss on this blog, wink wink, nudge nudge) is watching movies. I’d say “going to the theater” or “watching film,” but I don’t want to come across as some uppity, Pruis driving, bourgeoisie snob. I… Read more
