I can’t let a month go by without discussing the importance of glute strength. I mean there is a strength coach, Bret Contreras, that has dedicated himself to the glutes! Clearly, if someone as smart as Bret is going to those lengths, the glutes are worth mentioning again and again. Today, though, I will take […]

Fixing IT Band Issues for GOOD!

Personalizing Your Training with a Heart Rate Monitor

I remember back in high school we occasionally had to wear heart rate monitors for gym class. You got graded on your level of exertion.
