The Commercial Gym Conundrum

I was going to do nothing but wish everyone a Happy New Year today, but I got an interesting question from one of my old distance coaching clients yesterday that I wanted to share: Q: I read your blog about a week ago on how anyone looking to put on muscle will also put on… Read more

Lists of 2010

As many of you know from reading this blog on a regular basis, I don’t take myself too seriously. While I like to think I provide some quality content for the fitness minded folk out there, I also like to use this blog as a way to demonstrate that I’m not that much of a… Read more
