Importance of the Midfoot in the Squat

Written by: Kevin Cann I love the squat. This exercise to me is the single most important exercise one can do in their training program.

Is Intermittent Fasting For You?

Written by: Kevin Cann This is a question that I have received quite recently. There is quite a lot of contradictory information out there on the World Wide Web regarding this topic making it pretty confusing to those trying to take charge of their health and performance.

Image Obstacles-final.jpg

This time of year is all about knowing what we want for ourselves. We rightfully accept the window for change and wonder what kind of transformation we’re ready for—what measures we’re willing to commit to, what possibilities exist if we’re willing to go down that road. And so we daydream. We imagine what it would be like to feel better/fitter/healthier than we do right now. We think about how life would be different. We start to mentally put the Read more

Think Like a Geek. Eat Like a Hunter. Train Like a Fighter. Look Like a Model.

Context: The fitness community surrounding “paleo” doesn’t work for me. I don’t mean it doesn’t physically work, I mean that I don’t find it satisfying in the context of pursuing a life less agrarian.

I received a letter today and I thought I’d share the correspondence. Not to embarrass anybody or anything, but because someone took the time to send me an honest account from their perspective and I responded in kind. Letters like this get to the heart of what we’re doing and why. We don’t have all the answers, often all we have to go on is our personal experience and what we see. But as I mention in my response, what’s Read more

Egg Bhurji
