Texas, on the balance, is pretty damn flat. Save for the Big Bend Region, there really aren't much in the way of mountains like the ones I grew up with in Arizona. That said, Austin is effectively the start of the Hill Country here in Texas where it starts looking like this: And possibly the … Continue reading A Saturday Hike
This past summer I presented a talk to the young men of the 21 Convention in which I described how strength training can help expand and retain health through our very finite human lifespan.

I've known Doug McGuff for a number of years now and had the privilege of being able to pick his brain nearly at will (save for when he's not saving someone's ass in the emergency room).

Here are all the references I used in my presentation, for the curious amongst you...after … Continue reading 21 Convention: “Strength Training and the Biomarkers of Aging” bibliography

Sometimes you have to break all of your rules. Enjoy just this fleeting instant, without an attempt to influence the path of your life going forward. Drink the wine, eat the gelato, sleep too much, be thrown by the waves and accept how powerless you are in their domain. And once you've done that, you … Continue reading Languid Rest

I've spoken of Doug before and if you haven't watched the video that I have posted before take a look at Doug deadlifting: Now Doug has given me great advice over the years and what better excuse to drink a beer after a 17 hours fast and workout than a tribute workout!
