Taking Care of Your Elbow Pain Isn't as Difficult as You Might Think

You’re in the gym, you’re moving furniture, you’re shoveling, and that darn burning sensation in your elbow is back again. “I thought this would have passed by now,” you mumble to yourself, as you try and ignore the pain. No matter how much you try to battle it out of your mind, you can’t help but feel weak and physically impaired. It’s not a good feeling to live with.

Get out and take a hike

Some people love being outdoors, enveloped in the fresh air; others cringe at the thought of nature touching them. Whichever category you fall into, taking a hike can be the best decision you make this week. Hiking isn’t necessarily all about being “among nature,” you know. I like to define a hike as: a walk straying away from the pavement.

Avoid Risks of Over-training for Mixed Martial Arts

I was thinking about calling this Pro’s vs. Joe’s, but I didn’t want to be corny. There are fads and trends for everything and between this and your average person thinking they know everything about fitness and physiology, I believe there are many misconceptions.

What’s the Purpose of Two-Ball Drills?

Two-ball drills are essential to a player who needs to get really good at dealing with distractions out on the court.
