Article of the Week
I've been looking into the potential of cold thermogensis or Ice Baths. Tips For Burning More Fat With Cold Thermogenesis (And Why Icing Really Does Work). This article provides a great overview. While, I`m not a huge fan of the cold, the potential benefits are hard to ignore ... lowering body fat, increasing hormone levels, improving sexual performance and fertility, lowering blood sugar, cutting food cravings, enhancing immune function, improving deep sleep quality, increasing pain tolerance, reducing inflammation.
Words that Caught My Eye

Gear that is Cool
Unfortunately, we all get stuck on trainers. Well if you're Trevor you choose the trainer. In the search for that quiet, affordable trainer Tacx has just introduced the Tacx Flux trainer. Modeled of their more expensive Neo Smart direct drive trainer, the Flux takes that same concept and wraps it in a cheaper, bare version, while apparently maintaining all the advantages - most importantly reduced noise. Definitely worth a look when it becomes available in October.
