Our weekly round-up of articles we’ve found useful and interesting. Well, I say weekly but I’ve been INCREDIBLY slack and not done one for ages. This week’s theme is a bit ranty – promise we’ll find and share some decent technical articles for next time. Thanks to all the writers and creators of these articles…

The PT profession gets a lot of stick – and in many cases, rightly so. We’re often seen as ogres, military-style drill sergeants, and proponents of dietary advice that would make even Gillian McKeith blush. In amongst all of that, though, is a core of decent trainers struggling hard against a tide of, frankly, bullshit….

Contributed by Tim Wheatcroft   This blog is a little bit about what I’ve done since my previous article on my own physical transformation. My experience at the BDFPA National Full Power championships overall was a very, very pleasing one. Check out my video montage of the day: I managed a 175kg squat, 127.5kg (PB) bench press…

This is the first of a weekly round-up of the best things we’ve read over the past week. We constantly find interesting, thought provoking or just plain helpful articles – and usually simply retweet/share them. As well as doing that, we’re now going to put them all together here, so you don’t have to go…

Well, after the roaring success of my first meet last September in which I qualified for the BDFPA nationals, I had a second meet yesterday – the West Midlands last-minute qualifier.
