The FAQ that Changed My Life 03/19/13
I’ve written before about how I, a total couch potato, got started on my fitness journey. I never fail to mention the profound effect that the fitness community on reddit.com had on my transformation. I am not exaggerating when I say that the FAQ there, in particular, changed my life. It’s original content has been written and rewritten many times- it is a living breathing document- editable and curated by this dedicated, infuriating, brilliant, pompous, and well informed mob.
The first time that I read it, I read it on shuffle, then I read it on repeat. I probably pored over that sucker for a good 3 hours, absorbing, following links down the rabbit hole. It was like getting lost in a really great wikipedia article. I felt like it was just possible that I had discovered an incredibly important and sought after artifact. A treasure map.
But this was no ordinary treasure map, this was turn-by-turn directions to an amazing ass.
I was so glad to see recently that Greatist hired a sharp team to turn it into a lovely infographic. So if you don’t have time to read the FAQ over and over today, (seriously, it’s like being told someone’s not thirsty while trying to hand them an overflowing Holy Grail to drink from- Y U NO WANT NICE ASS?!) give this infographic a peek; it may change your life.
