The Reddit Guide to Fitness

Another fun infographic!

Reddit's Guide to Fitness

Lots of good advice. My favorite bits:

  • Drink water.
  • Sleep lots. (A personal favorite activity of mine).
  • Focus on compound exercises like squats and deadlifts.
  • No gym? Pick up rocks and logs and kegs.
  • Planche progressions and handstand pushups, YES!
  • Ground beef, eggs and tuna for building muscle.
  • Cottage cheese, fruits, fish, beans, dark chocolate (YES!), coconuts, almonds, pecans.
  • Eat clean: Eliminate soda, fast food, and junk food.
  • Starting Strength program.
  • Fitocracy!

Some of the advice I don’t like so much:

  • 45-60 minutes of cardio 4-5 days a week for weight loss. Correct, but inefficient.
  • Cushioned shoes reduce impact. False. Padded shoes promote heels strikes, which generate significant amounts of impact. So says Harvard.
  • Buy new shoes to increase workout motivation. Uh… That’s just bad advice. Workout first, then reward yourself with new shoes.
  • HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training. Great exercise method, but again, excessive use can lead to injuries.

An infographic like this isn’t – and isn’t intended to be – a comprehensive guide to fitness. That being said… It’s pretty awesome.

The Utility of a Stump

“But I don’t have anywhere to train!”

I hear this complaint just about every day. People email me wondering how they can train since they don’t have any good hotspots nearby. Boo hoo. So what. This is an example of what you can do with a stump or six. And a giant metal ladder, but that’s besides the point.

(And yes, I am wearing jeans to train. Don’t hate, I didn’t expect to be doing anything that day.)

Red Bull Kuwait Photos

The first shots from the Red Bull Art of Motion Kuwait have been published. Check them out, and laugh at how there’s a Red Bull logo in every one. Even when there wasn’t one physically present, they Photoshopped one in.

Losers

This popped out at me while I was looking at the details for the Kuwait Art of Motion.

“But there are no losers”

No losers. Tim Shieff might disagree.

Looks like a loser to me!
