Structural Balance Theory: Does your Butt Care about your Biceps? [$]

Everything that sucks is good for you. That’s what our intuition tells us. Give someone a piece of food that tastes disgusting and tell them it’s really good for them. They’ll take your word for it. Give someone a piece of this cheesecake and afterwards tell them it’s healthy and they’ll go ‘Yeah, right’. Even […]

The Costs and Benefits of Circuit Training

People ask me stuff. About fitness. I answer them. With a cost-benefit analysis. They say it’s eerily accurate. Inappropriately scientific. Annoyingly objective. “There’s no room for discussion with you.” I can’t help it. I like the truth. I’m a realist. I blame my training in economics. “Circuit training.” Okay. Here goes.
