1. Red Meat: Part of a Healthy Diet by Robb Wolf

If you haven’t come across this bogus study claiming that eating red meat will make you spontaneously combust as soon as it touches your lips, then take a quick peak.

2. Improving Productivity by Kevin Carr

Everyone I know seems to wish they had more hours in a day. I wake up at 4:30 every day and am training my first client at 5:30 or 6, and continue coaching all afternoon and night, usually working with around 200 clients and athletes per week, so I understand the time shortage struggle. Coach Kev really does a good job with this post, giving a few strategies to maximize the time that you spend working, so you can have a little more time for the other things in your life.

These are things we regularly do at MBSC, but I understand that I live in a bit of a bubble and make assumptions that everyone does this, but I’m pretty sure they don’t. If they did people wouldn’t be walking around like they have a spine made of steel.
