    To reply in the affirmative would indicate that someone has ruined their body. I guess we’d have to figure out how many Starting Strength practioners have ruined their bodies.

    Well, we should be.
    Rational strength training is the base for fitness after all.

    I don't know how, where or why you find these shitty articles all the time, Rip. I hope for your sanity you don't search the web for them.
    This one is especially hilarious, in a sad way. Or rather especially sad, in a hilarious way.

    you’re setting yourself up for burnout syndrome,” physical therapist Corinne Croce, 36, tells The Post. She says the condition develops from putting repetitive stress on the same parts of the body
    Yes, bad stress! Drop!
    It is known, repetitive stress is evil, at least without PT and massage.

    The corrective exercises look like a horrible way to waste your time.

    Dysfunction: Hamstring weakness
    Corrective exercise: Sprinter bridge
    And here I thought squats and deadlifts would strengthen my weak hammies. Thank god this buff former pro soccer player shows us the light.

    Looking forward to my intense repeated stress tonight, heavy squats and presses followed by light volume DL. Maybe I should check my ankle mobility first...

    Not even close.

    The thinking in this article is bizarre. There's the correct observation that there are now way too many fitness trends and gimmicks, but then they recommend doing a bit of all of it. As if a counterbalance to the increase in extremes is to all of them a little bit. "Dysfunction: X, corrective exercise: Y". If your fitness trend is causing dysfunction, maybe uh maybe stop doing the fitness trend. Just a thought.

    Crazy reasoning. Crazy.

    Btw, a friend of mine started a pole-dancing club, and I am A-OK with that.

    So #notall, I guess.

    Was there an actual article there? All I saw was a brag about spin classes and a sentence with the word 'recovery', followed by some pictures of trendy mobility moves.

    I see a great opportunity for your Starting Strength Gym franchisees to partner with this pair. Many people simply lack the mobility to squat 405, these people can help!

    That’s how we need to market the SS gyms...’boutique” fitness. Upscale problems in Manhattan apparently. Maybe we send Wolfe over there for a “polite discussion” about the benefits of strength training.
