Weekend Link Love – Edition 33

Posted By Mark Sisson On January 18, 2009 @ 10:06 am In Weekend Link Love | 8 Comments

The locker room can be unbearable. For anyone who remembers those painful, self-conscious moments after P.E. in middle school, The Great Fitness Experiment has a funny and revealing post about showering at the gym [7].

Will Smith is just full of good advice [8]. Ross Training posts about the wonderful moment in The Pursuit of Happyness where Smith talks to his son about protecting one’s dreams [9].

Forget skiing, forget snowboarding, Lift Magazine brings you extreme sledding [10]. Extremely fast, extremely fun, extremely dangerous, and extremely expensive.

Or if sledding isn’t extreme enough, how about flying [11]?

MizFit doesn’t use a heart rate monitor [12]. Do you?

Why educate people about health and fitness when we can simply use our taxes to pay for weight loss surgery? The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has the story on why doctors want to use our tax money to give people lap bands [13]. My best summation: Jaw-dropping insanity. According to the article, the “eligible” age for weight loss surgery in women is 13! (Thanks for the link, David B.)

So, what’s a better alternative than the surgery? How about teaching your 13 year old to stop eating the 20 worst foods in America [14]. (thanks, David F.)

According to My Super Charged Life, video games aren’t just for couch potatoes with fast thumbs. Catch up with the buzz over Wii Fit [15].

Starlets follow the craziest diets and The Diet Blog explains why Gwyneth Paltrow is the reigning queen [16].

If you liked my Tabata Sprint post [17], Beach Fitness has a handy online Tabata Clock [18] to time your intense intervals. The timer works great if you’re confined to the prison [19] of a dorm room or home office, and you want to do a quick 4 minute routine of extreme burpees.
