Sunday Special (Top 3 Posts of the Week)

Here are 3 awesome posts from the past week.  They provide a good mixture:  from program design, to the truth behind terms such as ‘organic’ and ‘natural’, to debunking popular myths and beliefs in health and sports performance. Enjoy!

Dean is always keepin’ it real.  He talks about how many programs are missing out on crucial components of performance and healthy living.  Strength programs may have athletes putting up great numbers, but they will often be neglecting the body in one way or another.
