Weekly Fitness Reads: 5/8/15

Sifting through the mess can be a difficult, confusing endeavor. Ain’t nobody got time for that, well almost nobody. I do have time for that. In this weekly post, I’ll do the work for you and provide you with some of the finest articles from the far reaches of the fitness blogosphere.
