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 interesting health ands fitness articles from around the blogosphere:
Sometimes I read this guys stuff and I’m absolutely speechless. I don’t know what to say or how to take his opinion. I don’t even know who the hell the guy is but he has a VERY controversial blog called Natty or Not. I’m sure he’s been hacked and threatened more than once. He’s got such a great way with words and you really need a good grasp of (sarcastic) humour to digest his blog posts. Here’s an example of what I mean. Check out his latest post on how to get huge as a natural bodybuilder.
With Winter pretty much here, Mark Sisson at Mark’s Daily Apple talked winter blues. How cold, dark days can take a mental toll.
Fitnistics told us 9 prostate cancer facts everyone should know
Fitness in the City gave her readers a few tips to help them stay on track this holiday season. Her Panna Cotta recipe looks delicious by the way.
Do you like coconut and chocolate? Together? Faya from Fitness on Toast posted a delicious…and surprisingly healthy coconut and chocolate balls recipe.
Jerred Moon from End of Three Fitness adds another tool to the toolbox by going over the box squat. As a side note, squatting isn’t just for the steroid meathead you see in the gym. Squatting is a function of everyday life. From picking something up off the floor to going to the bathroom (the way we currently poop is wrong btw) humans were built to squat. The problem is most of us sit too much which makes squatting properly harder and harder to do.
Tommy Baker at Roman Fitness Systems wrote an insightful piece outlining 4 simple ways to break the meathead archetype.
The Paleo Diet looked into whether or not our brains are hardwired for junk food.
Just because it’s been marketed as “The Paleo Diet” doesn’t mean it actually has to be a diet. A while back I wrote a short article called A Paleo Primer that you might want to check out that explains the A, B, C’s of this whole Paleo craze. Steve Kamb at Nerd Fitness just recently wrote a great article in defence of a “Paleo-ish” type of diet as an alternative to following the guideline to the letter.
Well that should keep you busy while you’re sitting on the can passing time this weekend. Wherever you guys are in the world I hope you have a safe and fun weekend.
Keep the blue side up.
