Good Reads for the Week: 11/24/2012

Posted on by Ben Bruno

Another week is in the books, and that means it’s time for another Good Reads. I hope all my American readers had a good Thanksgiving!

Before I get to the list, I have a quick favor to ask of you that’ll literally take two seconds. It involves 1-2 steps.

Step 1. Join my Facebook fitness page if you don’t already. If you do, thanks!

Step 2. Under the button where it says “Like,” please click “Add to interests” so you can see my posts. Facebook has changed in some way that I don’t understand, but if you don’t click that button you probably won’t see the updates as much.

I’m transitioning from my personal page to my fitness page, so your help is much appreciated.

Now, here are two blog posts you may have missed during the week.

      Thanks!

    Ben, quick question (albeit off topic.) I was wondering if you take any pre-workout supplements (c4, jack3d, insert product name here type supplements.) Do you think they are a worthwhile type of supplement to be taking?

    • Ben Bruno

      Hi Nick- I do not take any preworkout supplements and I never have, so I can’t really comment. I workout in the morning and will sometimes get a big cup of coffee on the way to the gym and that usually wakes me right up.
