Tuning Out the Noise When It Comes to Research

Note from TG:  I know some people are put off when they read something only to get to the end and find out they’re being “sold” something. I just wanted to be straight forward from the get go that what follows is an endorsement for Examine.com’s Research Digest. I love what they do and what… Read more

Carbohydrate Rotation Revamped

Note from TG:  I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again: Han shot first I don’t post nearly enough nutrition related topics on this site as I should.

We haven’t been depriving ourselves too much. We still venture out into the city every weekend to find… Read more

Smarter Science of Slim: Silly Strong LOLCats

First off:  I just want to take a few moments to say THANK YOU to all the brave men and women (past a present) who, in what’s arguably the most un-selfish act possible, have put their lives on the line to serve this great country. In the words of a friend of mine, Greg, who… Read more

3 (Unorthodoxed) Reasons You Aren’t Getting Better at Lifting Heavy Things

Today’s guest post comes courtesy of the one and only Leigh Peele.  Leigh and I have known each other for about six years and in between co-hosting The FitCast together and exchanging numerous emails on Lord of the Rings philosophy we’ve grown to be good friends.   About two years ago Leigh kinda fell off… Read more
