Evidence-based medicine (EBM) has been described as “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in helping individual patients make decisions about their care in the light of their personal values and beliefs.” Unfortunately, according to Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, the unquestioned dominance of EBM in medical practice has, in many cases, created more problems than it has solved. In this three-part series, Kendrick discusses various reasons for the ineffectiveness of EBM. Here, he discusses how the widespread influence of the pharmaceutical industry over research priorities produces research that is more profitable than helpful, leading to problems such as the antibiotic resistance crisis.

At a place w/ nothing more than a 25# kb and 10# DBs.

Tabata squats, alternating air and 25# goblet squats

18 air and 15 goblet squats each round

Tabata 25# kb swings

11 or 12 each round

Tabata shoulder press, 10# DBs

18-16-6 rounds of 15

L-sit, scales, and plank practice

Overall, more of an active rest day than a real workout.

When I was in high school I used to help keep score and the books at this Men's League we ran as a fundraiser. I'll never forget Team Jordan coming out in the meanest uniforms of anyone, only to dent holes in our backboards and blow snotrockets on the court. That's my contribution to the poem linked.
