When used properly, these drills are highly… Read more »

Random Training and Nutrition Thoughts

  Almost everything you are reading on nutrition is subjective, sensationalized, agenda-pushing bullshit. I spent the last year purposely doing everything “wrong” in the eyes of the internet.

Training: One Size Does NOT Fit All

In the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Jason Segal’s character takes surfing lessons from Paul Rudd’s character.
