Content is Still King: Here’s Why You Need a Content Team

While data has experienced a huge surge in business relevance and importance over the last few years, from the arrival and proliferation of the term “big data” and its industry and governmental usages, to the way with which small and large businesses alike can easily mine and contextualize data regarding customer behavior and website traffic, content has taken a backseat in the debates and discussions […]

September 20th Update: Second Wind

Last week was not a great week — starting Tuesday, I was overcome by constant drowsiness, a feeling akin to starting a fever, etc etc. It was not a great time. But then Monday rolled around, and although I still couldn’t stick to my schedule — work and the rain and a general depressive feeling of demotivation — I did finally get my ass to […]

September 14th Update: Arm Recovery, and Stomach Problems

So long story short (the long story won’t be featured), I got my arm cranked a little too much yesterday and it’s still feeling very iffy. That aside, a lack of sleep and some strange stomach incidences have put a halt to my week. Which means I need more recovery. There’s the bad news. The good news is that these things are minor and ephemeral […]

September 12th Update: Woot, back to training!

So it’s week 2 of training, and I started the week off with some running — it was a good run, but one thing I definitely noticed last week is that my runs get significantly worse if I do them on a daily basis. I’m not sure where the fault lies at the moment (I’ve had heel pain for months and wear old, run-down minimalist […]

So what exactly is HIIT? Your Guide to Interval Training

HIIT — the abbreviation alone gives you a good idea of what to expect going into such a rigorous training session. It hits you, hard, and the effects roll in quite rapidly the more consistently you train. Originally a form of supercharged training for Olympic speedskaters by a much more rigorous training standard called the Tabata method, HIIT is leaned on the lessons learned from […]

September 8th Update: No Gi today! But not on purpose.

So today I had an unintended no gi class when I showed up to class with, well, no gi. I started BJJ towards the end of the summer, and now it’s the rainy season — which means my precious karate clothes have not dried yet. I didn’t worry about this for a pretty simple reason: today was the day my new training stuff was supposed […]

September 7th Update: A little slower today.

It’s been a long day — a tad too long! I was off to a bad start with some foot pain and a feeling that I really, really didn’t want to be up yet — not necessarily tired, but rather, sore. Still, this is the first week and I haven’t been drinking enough (more signs of that appeared today), so it’s obvious to me that […]

September 6th Update: A Leg Cramp! Time to find a fix.

I don’t cramp. It doesn’t happen. At least, it hasn’t happened in a long, long time. Typically, I cramp when I go really really hard. It’s when I turn my program from 100 to 180 — like I have been doing. Now, I’m not necessarily surprised; as I said, I’m doing a new program, and that comes with little waves and storms forcing me to correct […]

September 5th Update: No Case of the Monday Blues!

Let’s just preface this by saying that I absolutely love coffee. I’m not the first to say this, and we’ll probably still be drinking coffee a thousand years from now, generated in the same little paper cups through our very own matter fabricator — but coffee is fucking amazing, especially on a Monday. My favorite thing is when I’m sitting at my computer on a […]

September 2nd Update: A Proper Program!

It’s Friday today, and despite that fact, I implemented my new training program today instead of waiting for Monday. It’s a Jam tradition — if I’ve got a plan to do something I actually care about, I do it as soon as possible rather than waiting for a convenient moment. It allows me to cut down on excuses. My “new training program” is really the […]
