Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 6/16/17

I know, I know: I’ve been slacking on the writing front the past few weeks. I do hope you’ve been enjoying the influx of informative guest posts of late. It’s important to me that this site remains a repository of good information and ass-kickery (and cute kitty pictures), even in my absence. The past two… Read more

It’s a Warmup, Not a Social Hour

I arrived back to Boston late last night from London and I’d like to say I woke up today well-rested and ready to wow everyone with some witty fitness prose. I’d like to say that. Not gonna happen today. I’ve got a ton of emails and programs to catch up on, but that doesn’t mean… Read more

Accelerated Fat Loss

I’m still across the pond in London with Dean Somerset presenting our Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint workshop. I have zero plans to do work today, but a good friend (and colleague) of mine, George Kalantzis, was kind enough to pinch hit write for me.

Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 6/9/17

I’m excited to announce the Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop is finally coming to Boston.   My wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis, and I have had the honor of presenting this workshop in both Austin, TX and London, UK last year (and will also be heading to Toronto, ON next week), so it only made sense we’d… Read more

How Food Induced Inflammation Affects Performance and Recovery

This past weekend Lisa and I had friends over and we ordered a few pizzas. I love pizza. And no surprise I went a little overboard. Also no surprise: I woke up the next day feeling lethargic, bloated, and as if my mouth spent the night in a desert. Don’t get me wrong: I didn’t… Read more

Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 6/2/17

Man oh man, can you believe it’s June? We had an unseasonable cold month (even for Boston standards) this past month, so I was glad to see May go, but seriously….June? Already? I had a busy week this past week so I didn’t have ample opportunity to get much writing done, sorry! I do have… Read more
