Happy Monday (well, at least for those of you that have off this morning) and welcome to the fitness posts & podcasts for the week of February 19th.

Learning how to be more productive without those gimmicky books that make other people money is priceless. For some simple rules, read this post and then, when it’s time to work, follow Rule #1.
Beware of the bodybuilding myths when it comes to nutrition advice. Some of them just don’t hold up when you check the science.
