Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 5/12/16

Not to rub it in or anything, but I’m in Europe right now. Prague to be precise. I’m, like, so fancy pants. Lisa and I left Boston yesterday and high-tailed it – nay, bolted – into our two-week European extravaganza. It’s my first trip to “mainland” Europe (I visited London close to two years ago… Read more

Striving to Be More, Instead of Wanting to Be Less: Why Strength Training is a Perfect Fit for Women

I was going to title this article “Why Women Should Strength Train,” and then, being my witty/whimsical self, write something to the effect of: “Because, it’s the shit.” [Smoke bomb, smoke bomb.

A Thoughtful Discussion on Low Back Sparing Strategies. Actually, Less “Thoughtful” More “Meandering”

I often joke that “lifting weights isn’t supposed to tickle.” When you’re pushing, pulling, carrying, thrusting, and otherwise hoisting things around for the heck of it…you’re bound to end up with a few bumps and bruises along the way. Honestly, I can’t think of the last time my body was 100% devoid of any type… Read more
