What's New at StrongFast?

Still working out the kinks here at the new-format Planet. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

And I think we're about due for a Kunz Stadium workout. That's always fun. Running, jumping, climbing, lunging, all in the great outdoors. Keep an eye on Blitz Central for that!

If you're looking to burn some extra fat (and who isn't?), give this a try. First thing in the morning, before eating or drinking anything (except water), spend a minute being active as shown in the video. Try it for 30 days and let us know how it goes.

There's some science behind this, primarily around fasted training. But using one brief, intense bout has only anecdotal support. And it's not a replacement for actual training, just something extra to get better results. Give it a try for 30 days and see how it works for you!

For the software people out there, The Code Barbarian has 8 Reasons Why Nutrition Makes You A Better Developer. Is it true? Who cares! It's enough that it's about software developers.

Makes you want to go do some Turkish Get-ups, doesn't it?
Recipe: Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken
Shredded Chicken
Maybe a little early in the year for the crockpot (aka "slow cooker") but really you can use it any time. This is a very generic recipe: jazz i tup as you see fit.
And a question for the Planet readers with actual cooking skills: could you just take a whole chicken, cut into some parts, and throw it in the crockpot using this recipe? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
