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

While data has experienced a surge in relevance, content may have taken a backseat in the discussions today. Despite that, content is still king. You can be as data-driven as possible — but as per Discovery Channel’s EVP “if creative fails, then who cares?” Content matters only insofar as its quality rings true. Bad content is bad for business — good content is excellent. Let’s […]

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 […]
