People usually disagree with me when A) I’m being an asshole or B) I’m wrong. Since I like to think of myself as never being wrong, (can you hear that darling wifey?….) I must have wrote something “asshole-ish” because I got quite the tongue lashing for writing A Case Against The Cardio Workout. A couple not so nice emails. One guy that completely disagrees with me is my good buddy Jay. You might remember him from a while back. He did a guest post discussing how he lost the equivalent of a tiny Asian man. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion and here’s his: [Read more…]

Merry Christmas everyone. We’re going to keep this short and sweet. Not a lot of health and fitness today. Today is about eating your bodyweight in chocolate and cookies. Oh yeah and then there’s the whole baby Jesus and being with family thing.
Well if you find yourself sitting alone in the midst of a family feud, here’s some quick reading to make it look like you’re busy so you don’t have to talk to anyone: [Read more…]

Happy Friday everyone. It’s the last weekend before Christmas and if you live in Toronto, I hope you’re not going anywhere near Yorkdale Mall or Vaughan Mills! Well apparently Tom Brady has a man crush on Donald Trump! Really he does.

Just this past week when asked at a press conference about his relationship with Trump, Brady just got up and left. Apparently too scared to field reporters questions. Dude….not for anything. You face 300 lbs charging gorilla’s coming at you and you’re afraid to [Read more…]
Crème de la Crème
So like most people I use to think that marathon runner’s, triathletes and other hardcore endurance athletes were the crème de la crème of the fitness world. Superior athletes and the fittest of the fit. You just kind of grow up believing that people who have really good endurance are in great shape and incredibly healthy.

Cycling for 50 kms? Yeah not my cup of tea either. I’d rather take a softball to the [Read more…]
Well another week in the books and we’re getting closer and closer to Christmas. Anyone see this Fashion Santa guy? Model Paul Mason aka. Fashion Santa has been taking the holiday season by storm. I’ve been seeing this guy everywhere. He’s even been getting worldwide attention. Brilliant marketing. Anyways, I’d hate to be venturing out to the malls this weekend. Yikes! We’re pretty much done all our Christmas shopping. It’s the wrapping that’s the pain in the ass. Our living room table looks like Santa’s workshop with all the presents, paper and tape everywhere. Speaking of tape, if you missed it on Monday we talked about the difference between taping or bracing your sports injury. Well if you got some time this weekend, here’s this weeks round-up of [Read more…]
