Time for another addition of the weekly reading round-up! This weeks list contains 11 great articles from many familiar faces. Check them out and let me know which one is your favorite! Weekly Reading Round-Up   Best of the Best   There’s Always More to Say: Tattoos, Semicolons, and Suicidal Depression – John Romaniello This week’s best article isn’t necessarily fitness related, but it was far and away the best thing I read on the internet this week and I think everyone can take something from it. Having had a few people close to me battle with, and continue to battle with depression, John’s article really hit home. Chances are, someone in your life struggles with depression, whether you know it or not. Most of us probably feel depressed sometimes, but that differs drastically from those suffering from true depression. Unless you live with depression, it’s truly difficult to know exactly what those people are going through. John does a great job of explaining just how difficult it can be.   Best of the Rest   The Truth About Net Carbs – Dr. John Rusin & Mike Gorski The ONE Thing to Improve Your Health – Mason Woodruff The Unspoken Truth About Online Fitness – Tanner Baze 34 Things Learned from 20 Years of Lifting – Part 1 – Dean Somerset Does Size Matter? – Bryan Krahn 12 Life Changing Lessons My Dad Taught Me – Mike Vacanti Strength Training Tricks: What Works – Travis Pollen Gym Etiquette 101 – James Fell Get Gung Ho About Fitness – James Fell How to Beat Hunger – Jason Helmes   Don’t go searching for the best fitness info…get it delivered to your inbox each week!
