stand for what you believe, even if it means standing alone.

I’ve seen that quote pop up a few times in the past month, and though I am not sure who uttered those words, they are truer now than ever. Choosing a path and sticking to it is painfully difficult at times, especially when a trend everyone is following is fervent, but it’s important to keep your focus pointedly on your intention and to move forward with purpose, regardless of the white noise surrounding you. OK, I sound like a TED Talk. Rewind — here’s what I am getting at: Often when you commit to a healthy lifestyle, you feel isolated — case in point, when you order everything on the side When Harry Met Sally–style while your friends ask for extra bread and butter, or when you forgo barhopping with the girls…

Returning Customer Back in 2011 while at the grocery store, I stumbled across this amazing fitness magazine called Oxygen. I fell in love with it due to the serious fitness advice for the more advanced fitness junky and the limited ads. I subscribed immediately. Over the next two years, I noticed the ads becoming more and more provocative. It eventually got to the point that I had to go through the magazine and rip out the ads because I had young children in the house. Eventually, I canceled my subscription. But today, I picked up an issue and was pleased to see plenty of amazing content and relatable ads that made me look twice at the products. You may have another happy subscriber very soon. Thank you for returning to the…

Lee Boyce, CPT Author of “Spinal Tap,” Page 50 Lee Boyce knows a thing or two about the spine. “The laundry list of back injuries I’ve overcome in my past led to plenty of research, practical applications and treatments with practitioners, which shaped my knowledge base,” he says. “I use all the exercises in this article in my own training — I practice what I preach!” Gym-side Boyce likes to use power cleans in his workouts. “They are dominant to the posterior chain, explosive in nature and involve the entire body,” he says. “I like how athletic they are, and if you have any issues with mobility, speed or strength, you’ll be exposed immediately.” Karen Asp, ACE-CPT Author of “Beware the Smartphone Suck,” Page 30, and “Where’s the Beef?” Page 78 Though Karen Asp is a…

700 The approximate number of lymph nodes in the human body New human organ discovered (for real) Just when you thought you had your anatomy nailed, scientists discover something new: the interstitium. This organ is a network of interconnected, fluid-filled compartments that are supported by a mesh of flexible proteins, and it is found beneath the top layers of the skin as well as in the tissues lining the gut, lungs, blood vessels, urinary system, fascia and muscles. The interstitium produces lymph — an integral part of your immune system — and acts as a shock absorber to protect your organs. Why is it just now being discovered? Because when tissue samples are prepared for slides, the fixing process drains the fluid and the interstitium collapses. Is stress contagious? Researchers say yes. A study in Nature…
