Why You Shouldn’t Abandon Traditional Strength Training MethodsBy Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin - via www.NinaCheriePhD.comFull Article: goo.gl/zxZ1bzThese days, many gyms are going away with traditional strength training machines and sometimes even free weights opting instead for trendier fitness techniques like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and Tabata boot camp workouts. While such exercise methods can substantially improve muscular endurance, boost metabolism, and enhance fat burning for weight loss, progressive strength (resistance) training with machines and free weights remains at the core of a well-rounded fitness program that’s both safe and sustainable.In recent years, I’ve found myself in heated battles with other exercise enthusiasts and fitness professionals many of whom are adamant about the uselessness of strength training machines and other traditional resistance training methods in this day in age.

Maya Angelou ~ Miss Calypso {1957}
In 1957, at the height of the calypso movement—a style popularized by Harry Belafonte — Maya Angelou recorded her first and only album, Miss Calypso. In it, she covers Nat King Cole’s “Calypso Blues” and Louis Jordan’s “Run Joe,” using her deep vibrato to create a simmering fusion of jazz and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. The album even partly inspired her first feature film, Calypso Heat Wave, in which she both starred and sang. Though short-lived, Angelou’s music career also included songwriting credits for the legendary B.B. King on two tracks he recorded for the Quincy Jones-produced soundtrack to Sidney Poitier’s For Love of Ivy. x
