On my mind #3

It’s been awhile since my last post, and let’s just say that balancing a full-time post-doc with completing a full-time physiotherapy degree hasn’t left much time for the site. It’s been a tough two months, and after sitting down and really thinking about what my priorities are right now, I’ve rebalanced my projects which should […]

On my mind #2

Taking a break from science this weekend, here is what’s on my mind right now:

Essential Reading #1

I’ve worked with plenty of people over the years who have achieved impressive levels of strength and physique development without ever knowing what a myosin heavy chain is or the names of any of the muscles that attach to the scapula. You’d be surprised how far you can go with a barbell and lots of […]

On my mind #1

I’ve received some good feedback on the Strong Science series, but wanted to create some posts that aren’t necessarily tied to a theme or filled with science. My thought process is best described as anything but organized so I thought I’d throw together a random thoughts style of post as a good way to put […]

What’s more important?

My family always had dogs, so the concept of dog training wasn’t foreign to me when I got my own, however being a kid at the time I don’t think I was nearly as involved in the process as I should’ve been. Only as an adult have I realized the amount of behind-the-scenes work with […]

Not all actions are equal

I swore when I started this blog and using twitter and Facebook more regularly that I wouldn’t become one of those chronic motivational quote posters. The fitness industry certainly doesn’t need any more, and I’m starting to suspect that 90% of all fitness-related tweets are really just quotes from someone else followed by the hashtag […]

Publicize your learning process

Every fitness professional, exercise scientist and kinesiology student should have a blog. I know this seems contrary to opinions on the more popular fitness blogs, those telling everyone to filter their info and criticizing people for pushing articles online without at least a decade of experience. We’re putting limits and qualifiers on who can contribute, […]

Going to the dogs

Thanks to a collection of family dogs, only two of my years on this planet have been spent dog-free. Two too many as far as I’m concerned. Four years ago, after a heart-breaking farewell to Pascoe, the family dog (who stayed with my parents), my wife and I packed up and moved to Hamilton so […]

Cynics, crossfit & continental cleans

I recently downloaded the eBook ‘The Flinch’ by Julien Smith coauthored by Chris Brogan, the newest release from The Domino Project. Started by Seth Godin, The Domino Project is a partnership with Amazon and in their words, is an attempt to ‘change the way books are built, sold and spread’. Since this one is free, […]
