    Returning to archery and climbing after eight months of physical therapy for a frozen shoulder has been interesting. In fact, this is been my second recovery in the past three years, one for each shoulder. What has surprised me is that I have come back strong climbing, but am having real...

    I was re-reading one of Cordain's papers on hunter-gatherer activity levels and was astonished by the results. Think on this: Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) is the sum of resting metabolic rate (RMR), physical activity, and a few other energy costs such as the thermic effect of digesting food...

    As you probably know, no matter how hard you work exercising and watching your diet, you will not extend your life by more than a few weeks (months at best). Given this, it seems reasonable to ask why any of us are ever interested in being physically fit. And the answer most people give at...
