Good Reads for the Week: 2/18/2012

Posted on by Ben Bruno

I hope everyone had a good week and has a nice relaxing weekend planned…or not. It’s funny, during the week when things get hectic I sometimes look forward to the weekend, but the weekend’s invariably seem to end up being as busy—or even busier—than the weekdays. Know what I mean?

Hopefully you have some free time though to devote to reading, in which case I’ve got you covered. This is an awesome list of fitness articles that I think you should enjoy

Here are some posts you may have missed during the week.
