Summer’s coming. Eventually, you’ll have to take off your shirt. Make sure that moment isn’t awful with Greatist.
Founded by a Harvard grad sick of being husky — and surprised that even smart guys (like him) couldn’t figure out a diet/exercise regimen — Greatist provides easy-to-use training guides and apps for the everyman.
Best part: the guides are mostly infographics.
Other best part: sometimes, they cite William S. Burroughs.
The guides, released this week, are downloadable PDFs, and each comes with a complimentary app that reduces your workout planning to a simple three-click process: pick your timeframe or objective (four weeks, six weeks, strength training, etc.), schedule your start date and press “Get Started.”
The latest guides:
Once downloaded, you’ll have each day mapped out, from running distances to training times to, yes, planned days of rest.
All smart moves.
