Leslie Goldman demystifies and debunks weird and wonderful trends in health and fitness.
When it comes to athletics, I look pretty damned good on paper: 5-foot-11, resting heart rate of 56 bpm, can leg press 150 pounds. But in practice, I'm a hot mess: Deathly afraid of bicycles; can't understand football to save my life; can barely jump high enough to clear an anthill. While I'm interested in all of these things (hence why I write for espnW!), they just don't seem to be in my DNA.
