if you’re looking for form checks...you just need to make sure the online community you rely on for feedback adheres to the same training methodology you intend to follow. even then it’s important to take feedback with a grain of salt, but what seems like anecdotal evidence shared in the comments can be useful on…
Buy a USB battery. Freedom from outlets is priceless.
Wave it around. Stick it out in front of you, to the side, across, back, and back across. Bend over. Bend back. Bend to the sides. You’re working on balance so, work on your balance. I am 67 and have just started working on balance. It is surprising how, if you don’t practice balance, you lose the muscles.

You are denying people the thrill and anxiety of the Pittsburgh Left!
South Central PA: wave someone through an unprotected left turn if you can see it’s getting backed up.
Of course! My workout group hits playgrounds pretty often. But we’re doing this before sunup, very open about how and where we work out, and extremely respectful of the equipment.
These look fantastic, thanks Beth.
I have an immune deficiency disorder, so even though I’m vaccinated, I’m far less protected than the average vaccinated person. Herd immunity reducing the risk of exposure is my primary defense against diseases like measles and whooping cough. And like you, whooping cough is making a resurgence here. At one point,…
I’m really disappointed that Oregon Governor Kate Brown killed a similar proposal here, in exchange for votes on another piece of legislation. I’ve written about this before, but I have a personal stake in this: I’m allergic to the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine, which causes me to develop multiform hives. Because…
I refuse to move over because if I do, I get buzzed by cars. If I take the lane, I get acres of space. Die mad about it, drivers.
At most bookstores or Staples or Five Below, you should be able to find practice books. They’re aimed toward children, obviously, but if you haven’t developed the fine motor skills that make cursive easy, they are a godsend for someone who wants to learn. We’ve used them in our English Literacy classes and people love…
Seriously just give people on bikes some fucking space. I remember one of my uncles told me he was going to attach spikes to his hubcaps when Colorado passed a law saying you had to give cyclists either three or six (can’t remember) feet of space when you pass them.
I ride a lot of winding mountain roads and will occasionally occupy the whole lane even when I don’t need it, simply to keep cars from passing on blind corners (example attached).
I think part of the problem is reflected right in the title “Your Lane”. It’s not your lane. It’s the lane. It’s a shared lane - shared by all the people using it. I find this sense of entitlement or possessiveness is often what leads to conflict.
Amateur beekeepers like me are always looking for swarms. Basically what you’re seeing is a fresh colony surrounding what’s usually a fresh queen. It’s free honey for us and free pollination for all of us.
Buy a black travel sized umbrella, MacGyver how you want so you can attach it to your child’s stroller. I discovered this lifehack while walking during my lunch breaks and seeing an old woman using one on a sunny day. I tried it and it made the walks enjoyable.
Swingset beams (the metal ones about 4"-6" in diameter) make for phenomenal pullup stations — the huge grip surface will destroy your forearms and force much higher overall body tension than regular pullups, since you’ll have to go slower. If you can’t do a pullup, just go for a bent-arm lockoff with your elbows about…
Next your gonna tell me adult swim was just an excuse to get the kids to the snack bar.
