Before every weekend I publish a recap of the best health and fitness articles I’ve read over the past week.
There are some great tips here for getting a good workout in a shorter amount of time. I really like the tip from Heather Rininger about doing 5 minutes of cardio between sets. That would be a killer workout.
It’s always good to see articles like this spreading. There is so much bad advice floating around and it’s so hard to separate the facts from the old advice that has been dispelled in the last 5+ years.
Interesting post with pro’s and con’s to weighing yourself every day. Personally, I like weighing myself daily and marking it down on my workout sheets because I can compare my weight one week to the previous week and see how my weight has changed and if it has had any effect on how much I lifted that day. I do think I’ll be changing to once-a-week weigh-in’s soon though.
These are some great bodyweight exercises to add to your arsenal. I’m mostly adding this one to my list because I want to start doing Handstand Push-Ups.
This just sounds way too delicious not to mention.
This is amazing. I can only hope I’m in half as good of shape as she is when I’m 73.
I’ll tell you right off the bat that this article is long. It’s six pages long, but it’s absolutely worth the read. This is what anyone who isn’t already a bodybuilder needs to know. Set aside some time and get through this one.
Dieting is a big part of many of our lives, but if you’re not eating enough, it could be affecting the decisions you make.
A whole new use for a fitball at the beach. If you have a gymnastic bone in your body, you’ll love this. I, on the other hand, would break my neck.
Hard-boiled eggs are really easy to make, but I’ve always had a hard time making them perfect. Perfect to me means that the shell comes right off. I suck at that part. Lifehacker linked to the post at the bottom of the article as well as to posts on making perfect fried eggs, scrambled eggs and poached eggs.
