The Internet is a treasure trove of information and content. Here’s a sampling of health and wellness related items that caught my eye this week. Enjoy!
Certain foods seem to go hand-in-hand with football season. Here’s how can you make your Sunday afternoon healthier without overhauling the menu.
Young athletes are experiencing a rise in overuse injuries. Perhaps it’s time we reconsidered our emphasis on sports specialization, especially at early ages.
Further study is needed, but scientists may have figured out how to reverse the aging process.
Off the couch! Move around a bit with some Yoga Push-ups:

Two common themes I covered during this past weekend’s workshop in Dublin.— Tony Gentilcore (@tonygentilcore1) September 9, 2019
1. 3x52 = “optimal” set/rep scheme for clients. Foster autonomy & Competency so that they hit tree gym 3 days per week, 52 weeks out of the year. Good things will happen.
2. I lied. That was the big one.
The fittest, healthiest people aren't the ones "dieting" the most.— Jill Coleman (@JillFit) September 9, 2019

Honestly, we often NEED compound mvmts for necessary levels of duress we otherwise couldn’t apply to a muscle
Another Ex: if we do push-ups right the upper back will GROW https://t.co/QsghvTdl3O
