Two Seconds To Peak Performance  "If you take a tight muscle and expose it to prolonged aggressive stretching, you could incur micro-tearing, bleeding, and scar tissue, which could then lead to further compromise of flexibility, muscle weakness, and contractures.

Most of this starts on the neurological level by way of the Golgi bodies and muscle spindles that prevent a muscle from stretching too far or too fast to prevent trauma. But by accounting for these stretch sensors, and by using gradual facilitative stretches with a two second peak, these drawbacks can be avoided and correct activation, relaxation, and function can be ensured."—Michael Ranfone for TNation.com

Newspaper Article Reminds Us Of Red Meat's Nutritional Value  "It’s essentially a case study of a woman – Kate – who gave up eating meat on health grounds. It appears, as a result, she ended up anaemic and seriously low on energy. Kate was also a regular exerciser, which may have some relevance (see later). Back eating some red meat, and with the help of an iron supplement, Kate experienced restoration in her energy levels and wellbeing."Dr. John Briffa
