Best articles of the week – 15 August 2016

 

Here we go again.  Another week of articles from around the globe.  I took the time to split them this time into the following segments to make it easier for my viewers.  Everything from general fitness, strength, nutrition, motivational, and of course movement and mental wellness. Don’t forget to take a look at the website of the week as well.
