I have been scratching my head trying to figure out if running aids building muscle or impedes it. By running, I mean steady state running/jogging as opposed to sprinting. This is a perennial debate in the fitness community.
This week’s article is definitely an open call for comments. I do not know anything about fitness trackers. I have never used one. If you use one or have experience with them (good or bad) then tell us about it in the comments.
I am guessing I am not the only Glib still “making their way” through leftover Halloween candy. Let us make a virtue out of necessity by considering the benefits of chocolate.
Rowing, otherwise known as crew, is just what it sounds like. We have all seen the pictures of one, two, or eight preppies in a really thin boat sitting low on the water. If you get ESPN 8 (“The Ocho”) you might have seen it live just before you fell asleep.
Happy Halloween Glibs! If you are like me, this may be the most dangerous time of year when it comes to eating. I’m a sucker for leftover Halloween candy, if it’s chocolate. All the other crap I can easily throw in the garbage. But heaven help me if it’s dark chocolate or chocolate with peanuts.

There was a lot of doughnut talk on Mexican Sharpshooter’s post yesterday. I love doughnuts. I mean I looooooooooove doughnuts. But I will eat way too many, which makes me way too fat. Every time I see a morbidly obese person, I wonder how much strain their...
I’ve been trying to figure out whether running helps or hinders what I want to accomplish. I have never been a big guy but have put on some muscle at the gym. I’m putting together a plan to get more serious about my lifting, eating, and sleeping. I’m 29 years old, aware of my age, and gaining muscle is not getting easier.
Strengthening your butt is a key ingredient in eliminating lower back pain. Obviously, if you have something structural, like scoliosis, you have a different reason for lower back problems.
