Here’s a few good reads from the last week to keep you busy while trying to get through another productive day at work:
How to Tell If Your Trainer Knows What They’re Doing by Molly Galbraith
As Molly says in the first paragraph, its hard to tell the difference between a great trainer and someone who has no clue what they are doing — and for someone not involved in the fitness industry its typical that they wouldn’t know the difference. Take a quick look at Molly’s article and think long and hard on whether or not your trainer is worth the time and money or if its time to seek some help elsewhere.
Intermittent Fasting 201 by John Romaniello
As I said in a previous post, I don’t practice intermittent fasting but I know many people do. Since so many people are into intermittent fasting I figured it would be good to throw out an article by someone who knows a lot more about intermittent fasting, John Romaniello. Intermittent fasting isn’t for me, but if you think its something for you then give it a try.

Great read on increasing linear speed by Kevin Carr. With the NFL Combine coming up and everyone fired up to watch these freaks run the 40, Kevin reveals some of the ways the NFL Combine athletes are trained to increase linear speed at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning.

Forget about counting calories, this diet and that diet because 99% of the time it doesn’t work. implement most of these strategies into your daily approach to nutrition and I would almost guarantee you’ll see some positive results.
