Last week I gave a talk about better breathing at my friend’s chiropractic office.

And while I was excited to do it I was also a bit nervous...

Why You Should Learn To Fight

Something I believe strongly in is the need for everyone to learn how to fight.

But learning to fight is important for you for several reasons...

2 Things I Had To Stop Doing In My Workouts After 40

When I turned 40 I had to admit to myself that it was more than just a number. Maybe it was a coincidence but it seemed like a lot of my bad decisions earlier in life were starting to come home to roost. I’d spent almost 2 decades with riding my bike and training to ride my bike as a daily pursuit and things were starting to hurt. I even found that...

What’s Faster On A Downhill – Pedaling or Coasting?

What’s faster on a downhill – pedaling or coasting? While most riders would assume that pedaling would be, an interesting study out of New Zealand calls that into question. Granted, this wasn’t a look at hardcore downhilling or even real trail riding – the study looked at the difference in performance in descending three different conditions after...
