It's victory Friday everyone. Oh, you're a Bears fan...well maybe pick a new team? Or maybe your team shouldn't leave Nelson with 15 yards of space in the end zone, that usually helps. Enough about that, hope everyone starts to enjoy the cooler weather here in New England, just enjoy this before it turns to the time of year the temps are a bit more on the ice age side.
Without rambling on much more about football and the whether, here is the Insta post of the week. Rather partial to this one, any idea why?:
Emma Stone Gains 18 Pounds of Muscle- YES! Anyone that's a follower of this blog and the strength training community in general, knows that this is a huge thing for us. A women, excited about putting on muscle, and not trying to look "slimmer" or "toned". Color us excited! It doesn't hurt that it's Emma Stone, like she's a pretty kick-ass actress. I'll admit that T-Nation is probably a little past it's hey day from years past, but articles like this are why I still keep it on my radar. For those that are still in the non-belief category or maybe you know someone, you have another article and bit of evidence to point them to.
The Path to Anti-Fragility- The mad scientist, Chris Duffin, has done it again, a great piece on why and how you can make yourself bullet proof without feeling the pain. Everyone's heard the term, no pain no gain...truthfully I've become a little sick of it and this post kind of makes the case for me. Even if you don't want to listen to the interview, take the 5 minutes and read the post.
Stop Making Fat Loss So Complicated- I'll admit I kind of cheated today and pulled 2 of the best posts PTDC had to offer from another week. I do this sometimes because I can't help that they list some really good stuff that needs to be shared. I recycle these because if I get just 1 more person to read the good stuff and no the mass media BS, I've done good in my opinion. More about this one, fat loss actually isn't super complicated, but it doesn't make it easy. The methods are not cool, flashy or sexy, but damnit do they work if you stick to them. It's another quick post so take your 10 minutes from doing nothing and read this piece from Bryan Krahn.
