If I could describe my younger self in one word, it would be “bookworm”. I read a lot. From fiction (Enid Blyton, anyone?) to the encyclopedia (before the age of Wikipedia), I consumed a lot of information. (Retaining that information is a whole other story.)
These days, I still read a lot — in fact, I’d much rather read than do a lot of other things (clean the house, for example) — but my reading tastes are more varied. Besides the all-important fiction diet (I can consume a novel a day), I’m finding that I read a lot of fitness and nutrition related articles on the interweb too. Here are some that I loved recently:
- CrossFit: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Not because I hate CrossFit (I really have no experience with it), but because this article has a great takeaway for anyone who engages in a fitness regime: that is, why are you doing what you’re doing? and is what you’re doing the best way to get there?
- The Best Exercise for You: Squats
Well, because I love squats. I think everyone should squat.
- I Move, Therefore I Am: 10 Philosophy Lessons About Fitness
Because anything Philosophy gets the Philosophy major in me going so there’s really no reason not to share this article, which marries my two loves: Fitness and Philosophy.
- Fonooni Got a Big ‘Ol Butt
One of my favourite Girls Gone Strong, Neghar Fonooni, on butts and deadlifts. Another 2 of my favourite topics.
- 50 Bloggers Making a Difference in Fitness, Health, and Happiness
In case you run out of things to read.
- Find a Workout that Works for You
Faz is a blogger who goes to my favourite gym, Ritual. Besides being a really down-to-earth friendly person, she also makes a lot of sense!
More to come!
