Just a reminder that you don't have to approach exercise as a bitter pill you have to swallow -- play and explore until you find something that works for YOU.

[NEW POST] "5 Training Tips for the Busy Adult Athlete": I wrote this guest post for +Eric Cressey's site. Are you doing these things? 
Tweet Today, I've got a guest post from Jen Sinkler, the creator of an awesome new resource, Lift Weights Faster. The playing field may look a little different these days: Rather than washing your own sweaty, grass-stained uniforms, perhaps you’re doing so for your kids. Maybe you’re throwing a laptop messenger bag over your shoulder […]

I got to talk shop with +Kevin Larrabee on The FitCast Podcast this week. 

Topics we covered: whether or not women should train like men, favorite books, and a winning attitude toward life and lifting.

Give it a listen when you're in the car, and let me know what you think! http://thefitcast.com/episode-287-lift-weights-faster-w-jen-sinkler

I wrote a plan for a guitar player, to improve his posture, strengthening his glutes, opening up his thoracic spine and hip flexors, and making him a strong guy. Because I never planned to actually send it to him, AND because his postural issues are common ones, I decided to share it more widely.

Rock on!:)

Learn how to do the weirdest deadlift variation on the block, the Jefferson Deadlift. (It's actually a hybrid of a squat and a deadlift, and as such, works just every muscle in your body. It's the best!)

This is a FREE sneak peek from my Lift Weights Faster video library. There are 20 instructional videos available, in all. More at http://www.jensinkler.com/lwfbook

Three summers ago, I missed meeting Practical Paleo author +Diane Sanfilippo in the woods of West Virginia by about 48 hours.

We’d both signed up to attend a five-day MovNat retreat, but a week apart. The Balanced Bites founder had taken off shortly before I arrived, still dragging my sequins in tow. I’d gotten off the plane from a fitness convention in Vegas, and was in dire need of a natural recharge. I couldn’t wait to unplug from my devices, to be cut off from civilization, and to run amok among the trees. And so I tweeted something along those lines on my way there. (Yeah, yeah, I understand the irony.)

“There’s wifi on the campground, you know,” came Diane’s reply.

Oh.

And with that, she burst my bubble. I kinda liked it.

That’s the thing about Diane: She gives it to you straight, regardless of what you’d like to hear. She doesn’t mince words or suffer foolish talk. I believe it makes her trustworthy.

Since then, we’ve developed a friendship, and I was thrilled to see her land on (and then stay on) The New York Times bestseller list for both Practical Paleo and The 21-Day Sugar Detox. I cook out of both regularly and with zeal — the spaghetti squash bolognese out of the first, and the shepherd’s pie out of the second are my most-requested dishes at home. They are spectacular, and spectacularly foolproof. The woman can not only cook, but she can help anyone cook.

So, when she said yes to writing the nutrition companion guide to my conditioning library, Lift Weights Faster, I knew it would be a good thing. I just didn’t realize exactly how good, but she brought the heat (a cooking pun!) with the result, Eat Better Faster. Plus, there's a bonus guide, Make Meals Faster.

For a sample of what you'll get, take a spin through Diane's recipe for Lemon Blueberry Muffins (not published anywhere else on the internet), which she pulled out of the Eat Better Faster guide especially for the readers of Thrive.

SO making them this weekend: http://www.jensinkler.com/eat-better-faster-2/

Favorite boutique in the world. I stop here every time I'm in Philly and clean the place out (or do as much damage as I can on my budget).:)
