Welcome to my n of 1 attempt to write the last article about getting in shape you read. About me; I am 34 with some injury experience. The photo to the left is of me a little over a year ago. Not included in that picture is the week where I was unable to tie my shoes or the six-month recovery from a herniated disc that required two epidural injections.
My first bit of advice on your fitness journey is to be reasonable about what you can lift, especially when it concerns compound movements. This article is an attempt to…
One of my all-time favorite songs is All My Best Friends Are Metalheads. The lyrics discuss how the easiest way to understand someone is to pretend they are not you. But along with some sick horns, the wildest thing to me remains the sample from Victor Lundberg’s A Letter to My Teenage Son — a Billboard top 10 bop from 1967.
In the dirge, a Lundberg speech is set over The Battle Hymn of the Republic. It argues that opposition to American wars, capitalism, and the general state of racism was eventual treason to that generation’s conceptualization of freedom. …

I believe Magic: The Gathering to be the best card game of our time. For younger and older generations seeking to understand the appeal of the now-aged game, I offer a brief primer, three lessons, and one goblin below.

I am a big fan of YouTube. Not only is it the platform that helped finalize a workout routine which helped me complete a five-month body transformation, but it is also an avenue to learn about storytelling. This can particularly be true if your day job allows you the ability to at least listen to the videos or if you have a long commute.
