Gymnastics Series starts this week!

Read – The 4 Dumbest Forms of Cardio by Dr. John Rusin (the good Doctor is very much worth a social media follow btw)

Here’s what you need to know…

  1. A little intelligently-planned cardio or metcon is good. How most people go about doing it isn’t.
  2. The elliptical machine is too easy. However, it’s great for mental zombies who enjoy pretending to exercise.
  3. “Slogging” – slow jogging – is one of the most popular forms of exercise in America. And America is fat and injured. Coincidence?
  4. The stair mill is actually a pretty good machine. Problem is, people crank it up too high, hang on to the rails, and wreck their posture.
  5. Biking is fine, but modern spin classes have devolved into spine crunching, shoulder-pinching train wrecks. (*a random Friday night Vibe Ride fueled by Kendrick Lamar is the exception)
