the joy of strength training

Something for the weekend

» by in: reviews


It’s about time I shared some more great links with you, to give you both food for thought and entertainment. Today I’m introducing a new forum, a video series, some great blogs and a fab free training guide. You can always check out my Links page anytime as well.

Funckey forum – This new forum on all things functional fitness (including a lot of Crossfit and some Ross Training) has already developed a friendly community bringing together functional training fans from all over the UK. Nice one, Chet!

Squat Rx videos – if you haven’t come across this video series on youtube yet, check it out. Very clear and thorough advice. Even if you are an experienced squatter, you will probably find something that you hadn’t thought about for a while.

Skwigg – Swigg is a self-confessed “food lunatic” who has got herself into great shape and wants to help others do the same. Her website is full of interesting (!) dishes and nutrition advice. An entertaining read!

Laurensfitness – Lauren is a personal trainer and professional athlete. Her well-written blog covers all aspects of fitness and diet. The blog is oriented towards the conventional gym-going crowd, but there are often gems to be found as she covers a wide range of topics and writes with clarity.

Male Pattern Fitness – Lou Shuler’s blog is always worth a visit if you are bored of a lunchtime. Writing on fitness ‘current affairs’, he’s usually entertaining and thought-provoking. He’s a bona fide journalist (and co-author of New Rules of Lifting) rather than amateur blogger. Don’t be put off by the name, his content isn’t always male!

Easy Ring Training Guide – Crossfit London’s free ring training guide, perfect for getting started on gymnastic rings. And if you are really into them, step it up with the full ring training guide (including muscle-up drills) available here for £3.50.

    Cool stuff, I’ve seen some of these before, but then I forget about them after awhile.

    I love reading Skwigg’s blog, her pictures have often given me inspiration for new things I can try.

    Nice to see a UK based forum too!
