Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails from readers sharing links to different articles that they think AoM readers would find interesting. I really appreciate this. It makes my job finding links for the weekly roundup much easier. However, sorting through all the e-mails does take up quite a bit of time. To facilitate link sharing, I have set up a del.icio.us account under the username art_of_manliness.
What’s del.icio.us? Del.icio.us is a website that allows you to keep links of your favorite articles, blogs, recipes, ect. and access them from any computer on the web. It also allows you to share favorite sites with your friends and family.
To set up a del.icio.us account, go to the how to get started with del.icio.us page, and follow the instructions. Then, if you come across a site that you think would be good for the weekly roundups mark it “for: art_of_manliness” (without the quotes). Next time I log into my del.icio.us account, I’ll see the link. If I think it would be something cool to share, I’ll include it in the weekly roundup. If you have a blog, feel free to send me links to posts you’d like to share with AoM readers.
Now for today’s links:

An Enduring Measure of Fitness: The Simple Push-Up (@ nytimes). Ah, the push-up. It’s an old standard that gym classes and football coaches have been using for decades to strengthen athletes. This New York Times article discusses why the push-up is the ultimate fitness barometer. Also check out Cameron Schaefer’s blog. He wrote an excellent article on the how’ s and why’s of the push-up.

Stuff White People Like This has nothing to do with manliness, but it’s pretty damn funny. Everyday the author of this blog presents a product or thing that white people seriously dig. Examples include expensive sandwiches, water bottles, and having gay friends.
