the joy of strength training

Other strength websites (1)

People often go on about how much crap there is on the internet, especially when it comes to strength training. But amongst all the rubbish are some real gems, and I will be highlighting my favourite sites on here from time to time.

To start with, here are five sites you’ll love if you have any interest in strength training.

In need of new ideas? Check out All Round Strength and Conditioning. Jason is always on the lookout for innovative, interesting and sometimes slightly wacky ways to get strong and flexible! He’s also got plenty of his own ideas. This is quite possibly the only website where I can guarantee you’ll see something you’ve never seen before!

Want to know everything about training with weights from the ground up? Need a friendly female perspective? You need Women’s Weight Training in your life. You don’t have to be a woman to appreciate this site, it’s read by a lot of men too. Krista includes articles on everything about weight training and nutrition. Her wry style will likely have you laughing out loud too.

Scott Bird of Straight to the Bar trawls the web every day for the best in strength articles and video clips. There’s always something new and interesting to see here. He covers everything from parkour to strongman, with plenty of powerlifting and bodybuilding in between.

Ross Training is the website of strength and conditioning coach Ross Enamait. His no-nonsense, low-tech, train-at-home philosophy has won a dedicated following, particularly among boxers and martial artists. Ross also stands out among ‘internet gurus’ for his down to earth approach. He is actively involved in his lively internet forum and resolutely refuses to believe his own hype.

If you are in the UK, Warrior Training is the home of those of us who follow Ross training and similar methods. Schwinners has recently added a lot more video and article content, although for me the mainstay of the site is the training logs. Some great ideas to be found here!

    Been avidly reading your blog, but not posted a comment yet. Thought it was about time I did, and thought I would post a comment to thank you for the Warrior Training mention in your article.

    Keep up the good work Gubes!

    In training
