Celiac Disease On The Rise In The U.S.    "Recent work showed an increase in celiac disease among participants in a longitudinal study. The results show that the prevalence of the disease is five times greater now than in 1974, when the data were first collected. Also, the findings suggest that people can develop the disease later in life."—Marianne English, Discovery News


The Deadlift   "Regardless of whether your fitness goals are to “rev up” your metabolism, increase strength or lean body mass, decrease body fat, rehabilitate your back, improve athletic performance, or maintain functional independence as a senior, the deadlift is a marked shortcut to that end."Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder

Defending The Deadlift: An Interview With Coach And Powerlifter Eric Cressey    "….it’s the single-most effective movement for training the posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings, adductor magnus, and lumbar erectors). The posterior chain is of paramount importance to high-level performance; watch the best sprinters run, and you’ll see that they seem to just “float”—and it’s because they’re running with their hamstrings and glutes. In contrast, watch a guy who runs with his quads, and you’ll see that his hips are bouncing up and down; there’s a lot of wasted movement. The glutes and hamstrings are all fast-twitch fibers with a lot of strength, speed, and size potential—potential you’ll never realize without deadlift variations."—-Eric Cressey, Cressey Performance
