Weekend Link Love – Edition 183

Take a few moments to be part of the 2012 Paleo Community Survey over at Naturally Engineered.

If you want to get stronger on the horizontal pullup bar (or just stronger in general), look no further than Al Kavadlo’s new ebook (available in print in a few weeks), “Raising the Bar.”  Suitable for beginners and the experienced alike, Al’s book will teach you dozens upon dozens of moves and progressions on “the most versatile piece of equipment in the world of fitness.”

10 stubborn exercise myths that just won’t die, debunked by science (via Lifehacker). It’s actually pretty good and confirms a lot of the same stuff we’ve been saying for years.

Certain women have a rather interesting reaction to exercise.

By now, we’re mostly aware of the existence of good and bad bacteria. But are there good and bad viruses, too? Via Hunter-Gatherer.

A new study out offers scientific “proof” that red meat reduces depression. While I know medium-rare lamb certainly makes me happy, let’s not make the same mistake others have made jumping to conclusions (however they seem to confirm our biases) because an epidemiological study said something.

Strap on some headphones and marvel at the majesty of nature’s orchestral music. Just wait til you get to the jaguar track.

Comment of the Week

“It’s an exciting time for fasting and cancer research. While it’s still viewed in most circles as an “alternative” modality”

Did you know the word “alternative” is based on an ancient Greek word that means “Big Pharma can’t make billions of dollars in profit on it”?

– While some alternative medical practices do strike me as nonsensical, I think what Doug says is partly correct (and completely hilarious).

  1. “Exercises most likely to be associated with female orgasms are abdominal exercises, … and climbing poles…”

    Really!? =P

    1. Hahahaaaa! Did you read the comments in the women and exercise post? this was the best one

      If exercise is making women succumb to the pleasures of the flesh, they should seek a more decent way of spending their free time. This is dreadful!!

      Well said reverend.

  2. She said she was going “out” but he knew where she was headed to get her fit…. Pilates.

  3. I like the article about women having orgasms while exercising…if it happened to men, we would all be professional body builders…lol

  4. That explains the woman at the gym who spends 30 minutes on her back doing pelvic thrusts.

  5. Love the spice blends and prefer making my own. For anyone interested in a review of the Primal Jambalaya, it is superb. I made it last night (and managed to find buffalo andouille sausage). The recipe is in an older post but I’m in the process of catching up!

  6. This is the first time I’ve been to that Lifehacker website, and after looking at a few of their articles my impression is that they are yet another example of the epidemic of stupid people pretending to be smart. It’s just a mixture of correct, idiocy, and lies.

    1. Agreed. I looked at a few articles and it seems they just made assumptions with out in-depth research.

    1. It is!

      But I hate ebooks and will get the hard copy (available in a few weeks at probably the same price) the moment it’s available.

      If you visit Al’s website (at AlKavadlo dot com) you’ll probably see what us Al fans like so much (and NO, I’m not female; and NO, I’ve never had an orgasm while working out [I nearly said exercising… but then that wouldn’t be true :)).

  7. It’s so great to see something about the female exercise induced orgasm on paper (or pixel as it were) because I was starting to think I had gone mad! I have to say that having your first public orgasm can be a highly liberating experience. I highly recommend it. 🙂 Also, there comes a moment of pride when you realize your lower abdominals have finally gotten strong enough to pull something like that off!

  8. I HAVE A NEW GOAL FOR THE GYM NOW!!!! are you kidding…if i could do this i wouldnt leave the gym ever…mayb thats all the skinny girls secrets? LOL! where do i get my own captains chair? getting healthy n losing wieght are one thing but to spontaneously orgasm from abs…sign me up!

  9. Survey completed 🙂

    “Raising the Bar” looks promising. I never thought a bar would be enough to get a full upper body workout. Do you think it is? Do you think I need the gym for any missed muscle groups, like traps or anything?
