Where have you been, Alan?
No, I haven’t completely disappeared. I’ve been catching up with work. Contrary to what my incredibly frequent entries might lead some to believe, I’m not a full-time professional blogger. In case anyone wonders, the above pic was recently taken at the Santa Monica beach. It’s not reflective of where I’ve spent most of my time lately, but paying Mother Nature occasional visits has been very therapeutic for someone who gets way too much screen time.
I’ll be back with a formal entry next month, but in the mean time, I want to direct your attention to some new (& semi-new) resources that are highly worthwhile.
- First up is a website my friend James Krieger recently launched, weightology.net. This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in high-quality, research-based information. James is one of the good guys in the fitness industry, and Heaven knows they are few and far-between.
- Those of you looking to streamline your social media will really appreciate fitmarker.com, which allows you to bookmark, share, discover and discuss all the best fitness-related information one convenient place.
- Fellow myth slayer and longtime friend Jamie Hale recently got published by Ulysses Press. His book Should I Eat the Yolk is available through mainstream commercial channels. Imagine that, a no-BS book unleashed upon the lay public by a major publishing house. Chalk up a big win for science!
- For those of you who have gotten bored with oatmeal, Kath Eats Real Food just might be your ticket to putting the awesome back into your oats. For those of you who forgot how civil I can be in internet debates, here’s a classic one I had with Kath herself. Anyone who doesn’t get a good chuckle out of that is simply comatose.
- LATE-BREAKING EDIT: Go over to the Swedish Phenom’s site right now & check out the training research roundtable in which I participated along with Lyle McDonald, Borge Fagerli, and James Krieger.
- Finally, I’d like to plug wannabebig.com since Daniel Clough is such a patient guy when it comes to waiting for articles from me. I’d also like to mention that WBB is elevating itself beyond the typical “bro box” by running articles from clear-minded writers like JC Deen and Ryan Zielonka.
