Getting the Skinny On Influence Marketing

In a day and age where anyone’s word can carry across entire continents, it’s obvious that protecting and maintaining one’s reputation is the number one defensive measure businesses have to take when operating in highly competitive industries. But on the flip side, the Internet’s ability to spread the word also allows businesses to leverage content and hard work in order to produce a measurable, valuable […]

Training Without a Gym – The Legs

When it comes to training the legs, there’s an almost infamous air of hesitation. Leg day, as it’s called, is hard. Notoriously hard. Squats are the best way to train your legs, and if you’re doing the right — with flat soles, heels digging into the ground, and a whole bunch of weight on your shoulders — they can easily force your entire body to […]

Training Without a Gym – The Core

If rows and push-ups aren’t enough to satisfy your need for an iron core, or if your name is Mr. Lee or Mr. Balboa and you want a torso made of rough iron rather than mushy muscle, then you need to make sure the core is a heavy focus in your training program. In general movement, the core is indeed incredibly important. Aside from being […]

Training Without a Gym – The Upper Body

The upper body can further be broken down into pulling and pushing movements. Pulling recruits the biceps in your arm, and your back musculature (in a very broad sense). Pushing recruits your triceps, and your chest/shoulders. The rest of your body stabilizes your movement, keeping you balanced and giving you the base and center of gravity necessary to push/pull from. Note: Here’s the spreadsheet version, […]

Training Without a Gym – Getting Started with Strength

Part one of this little three-part series will be tackling the matter of strength. I’m young, I’m brash; when given a trio of physical attributes to amplify in training (strength, endurance, and movement) I’ll obviously start off with strength, discussing the best options for strength training at home and getting more power behind your lifts or strikes. Duh. Jokes aside, I’m starting the series with […]

October Update: No Gym

October is here, and if you’re reading this, you’ll notice a lack of updates for the last two weeks of September. This wasn’t necessarily planned – it was more of an “uncontrollable circumstances” sort of thing. So, as I’m easing into the blog and getting used to my current workload, I’ve got some changes to make to begin the month and make the most of […]

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 […]
