Recently I’ve come across some cool articles with good information.
Here is a blog post by my friend and Parkour coach, Colin Pistell. He talks about the popular imagery in various gyms, websites, and tattoos that depict what he calls the “death aesthetic.”
Speaking of the death aesthetic, t-nation is full of blood-red symbols and hardcore pictures that scare little children and adults away from exercise. Fortunately for us, they have some good columnists and Dan John is always worth checking out. Here is an article he wrote about a great exercise, the kettlebell swing.
Somewhere in time I came across a website dedicated to the memory of Dr. George Sheehan, a cardiologist, runner, and philosopher. This is an essay he wrote called “Life is not a Spectator Sport.” He speaks of the dangers of being sedentary.
We should always question the reasons behind why we do the things we do. Here is an article that may have you question whether or not organic foods are superior to non-organic.
