    By t. | In Articles | on January 8, 2013

    I’ve considered a stand up work station for numerous years now.  Shawn K. and I discussed it a while back.  He even tried to get his workplace to buy him one.  They’re expensive and his company didn’t see why he’d ever need to stand while at work.  I bet the HR person thought to him […]

    By t. | In Articles, Mindset | on January 2, 2013

    [pullquote align="left" type="simple"]“It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system.

  • Sleep Better Tonight

    By t. | In Articles, Nutrition | on October 30, 2012

    I talk about sleep almost as much as I do nutrition and intelligent programming.  Quality sleep is a must if you want to be healthy, fit, and lean.  Going without quality sleep lowers Growth Hormone, Thyroid Hormone, and Testosterone.  Just as bad, it increases cortisol and insulin resistance.  If the aforementioned are low / high […]
