WRITTEN BY Mark Rippetoe
Progressive idiocy, pathetic studies, and a mainstream media eager to regurgitate it all.
To know where the good ones are, you need to know how the fitness industry works.
Be an adult with your savings and your health.
He isn't enlightened. He's physically inept, self-centered, and obsessively vain.
College students get a warning: weak means strong, unhealthy means healthy, and men with muscles might rape.
If "exercises" less strenuous than your daily activity actually worked, you'd already be fit.
