Why are we so confused about how and what to eat?

August 31, 2015

I wrote a post called A note to research nazis. In it I went over how even science has limitations on what it can accomplish. Such as what it’s able to research. I’m going to hit on that a bit again here, but what I’m also going to hit on, which I didn’t in the other post, is […]

Emptying out the mailbag and clearing the history #8

August 26, 2015

Other mailbags can be found here. Keep in mind a lot of this is email conversations, comment replies, or some random interesting things I’ve found. By their nature they are not as thorough or complete as a post on one topic. Here’s what’s covered in this installment: A hit to scar tissue theorists Different ways of handling information More […]

Brief words on that Amazon article and tech in general

August 19, 2015

I’ve been a fan of Jeff Bezos for a while. Wrote about this some here. I use Amazon’s affiliate program. I barely make anything off it, but I am sending them business. I also buy most of my books from them. I vote for them with my money, sort of speak. I pay decent attention […]

Looking more in depth at Darrelle Revis’ ACL comeback (why so many NFL players don’t make it back)

He was injured in September 2012, and didn’t start running again until May 2013.  -> I don’t know what they mean by running here. Straight line, light running typically takes place within a few months post-op. […]

This is a topic I’ve always felt was rudimentary, yet the opinions on it seem to move around. Another title for this article could be “Is exercise good for weight-loss?” I’ve trained a good amount of people who have said, “I’ve been working out for six months now, but haven’t lost a pound.” “I’ve been […]

Timing of ACL surgery- is waiting beneficial?

August 7, 2015

This started as a comment exchange from my post on mistakes ACL patients make. “Hey Brian, I’m a few weeks from ACL reconstruction. Everyone’s told me the PT is the most important part of the recovery back to active sports (basketball for me), and I plan on following your manual and the physical therapist’s protocol […]

Hip mobility issues in basketball players- why the lack of internal rotation?

August 3, 2015

I have a post On structural adaptation limitations (of the hip). At the end of the post I referenced research on whether hip “abnormalities” are genetic or an adaptation. This post will discuss that. It is effectively part two.  – I‘ll be using the following research paper: –The Cam-type Deformity of the Proximal Femur Arises in Childhood in Response to Vigorous […]
