Every weekend I publish a recap of the best health and fitness articles I’ve read over the past week. Here are my favorites.
I’ve never knew such a long article about the deadlift was necessary, but it is and this one’s really good. It goes through everything you need to know about how and why the deadlift works.
It would be so much fun to do something like this with my own family. I can’t wait to start following along to see how they all progress.
There are six different body-weight exercises here, each one starting at 3 reps as you go through a set of all six exercises. You go up 3 more reps each time you start a new set until you reach 21. I’d imagine that you’re gonna be really tired after this workout.
Instructables.com has an awesome DIY rowing machine project for those out there who are also handy. Don’t row too fast or you might start a fire! 😉
This article is not only informational, but also pretty funny. Dave Tate describes his experiences working with Louie Simmons at Westside Barbell in Columbus, Ohio. I would love to be able to work with someone like Louie who could optimize my own squat stance and technique one day.
Bodybuilding.com puts together some great bodybuilding challenges throughout the year and a new one is about to start for military personnel and their spouses. Check it out!
If you need to work on your core (and who doesn’t?) here are some great exercises from Joe Dowdell, a professional trainer to pro athletes and A-list celebrities.
I really like the message behind this article. It discusses how none of us can really be 100% vegan no matter how hard we try, but it’s all about doing what we can.
This sounds delicious. It sounds unhealthy too, but it’s not! I’m going to try to make a vegan version, which I don’t think will be too hard. I can’t wait.
If you’re suffering from chronic pain, fatigue or stress, you should consider taking up yoga. Even if you don’t suffer from any of those you should do it anyway. You’ll feel great!
I’m super strict about my nutrition and I prepare all of my meals for the entire week over the weekend to avoid straying from the plan, but there are some really goods tips here even I can probably use.
Many nutritionists like to criticize soy because of its estrogen content, despite the fact that plant-based estrogen works differently in our bodies than does the “feminizing” estrogen we usually read about. Even so, this article discusses what nutritionist never talk about – the estrogen properties of cows milk and other dairy products.
