Weekend Link Love – Edition 113

Posted By Mark Sisson On September 5, 2010 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 19 Comments

You may know I’m not a huge fan of pointless stretching [7]. Apparently the NY Times doesn’t see what all the fuss over stretching [8] is about either.

Sorry about the unavoidable price hike, Aussies, but I had to smile when I found out egg farmers can’t keep up with the rapidly growing demand for eggs in Australia [9]. To all my readers Down Under causing that shortage, Grok on!

Love the title of this video, “My Morning Run [10].”

And if you’re tired of all that parkour, here’s a different style of acrobatics from India [11].

Not sure whether to do high reps at low weight or low reps at high weight? LeanGains rounds up several opinions on the rep question [12]. Feel free to chime in with your own.

Weirdness from Wired: Apparently folks are making whisky from urine [13].

If you’re a DIY person, you might enjoy DIY Strength’s DIY clubs [14].

And finally, reader Kristie sent in this photo [15] of an ad she found for Ritz Crackerfuls. The ad invites you to “Snack on real food.” But the ingredients list [16] tells a slightly different story. As Kristie points out, beyond the artificial coloring and flavoring and the HFCS, the label lists, “Palm and/or Soybean and/or Canola oil.” So what, the lab technicians who engineered this product aren’t even sure what type of oil they used? I suppose Crackerfuls are real in the sense that they weren’t conjured by imagination from the feasting tables of Never Neverland, but I honestly can’t think of a less real snack to compare it to.

Recipe Corner

  • Unlike Ritz, What I Crave makes crackers from real real food. Try these Primal savory herb crackers [17].
  • Evidence of the Aussie egg craze, Girl Gone Primal makes chunky chicken burgers [18] wrapped in egg. Yes, you got that right, she is cutting up a chicken and stuffing it back into the egg.

Time Capsule

Two years ago (August 29 – September 4)

  • How to Get That Natural Glow [19] – The ins and outs of Primal skin care. Clearing up acne, avoiding the chemical goops, what products to look for. It doesn’t always put the lotion in the basket.
  • 10 Simple Steps to Motivate a Friend [20] – Most folks are resistant to the whole “avoid grains and cardio” concept of health. Here are a few tips for getting them on the right road to health, and perfect timing, because the Primal Challenge starts in just a few days!

Comment of the Week

Pre Challenge contest!? Right outside my door? It’s so beautiful! It’s almost a TRIPLE contest. WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?
