Good Reads For the Week: 2/11/2012

Posted on by Ben Bruno

Well, this is the first real weekend without football in a long time, and I’m already feeling lost. The good news is that without football, I have more time to get other stuff done on the weekends (i.e. more reading and writing), BUT, I miss football.

In any case, I’ve put together one of the best article compilations I’ve done in a while, so if you’re a fellow football like me and looking for something to take up your time, I’ve got you covered.

Before I get to the list, I want to remind you to join my new Facebook Fitness Page if you’ve yet to do so already. I’m shooting to do my first live “Q+A” on there sometime next week, so be on the lookout for that.

Also, my friends Adam Bornstein And John Romaniello have been nominated for a “Shorty Fitness Award,” and I’d appreciate it if you’d take an extra second to vote for them. It literally only takes a couple seconds. Their well-deserving of the award and I’d like to see them do well, but they’ve got some catch-up to do so he needs all the help he can get. You can vote for Adam HERE and Roman HERE. Muchas gracias.

Ok, now time for the list.

School is in session folks. Time to get mo’ smarter.
