Hi Fitness Friends! I haven’t written one of these in a while so here you go: 14 random things.

1.       Strong Curves Update

In just over two weeks, Strong Curves will be live. I’m blown away by how excellent the book turned out. This is my magnum opus – 2 years of hard work in the making, and I never could have done it without the help of my talented colleague Kellie Davis. She helped so much with the wording (not my strong suit) and with various chapters, not to mention there are several hundred exercise photos of her! April 2nd is the big day!

2.       The Fitness Summit: May 3-4

Hi Fitness Friends! I have 10 random things for you today.

1. New Website

As you can see, I finally changed around my website. I hope you like the new design. I think I’ve solved the popup issue as well (I received many emails informing me that my popup was freakishly annoying). It may take me a while to fix things, but I do listen to my reader’s concerns!

2. New About Me Page

I also created a new About Me page. This page contains links to all of my best articles, and they’re categorized into various topics. I hope you like that too.

3.  Reconsidering Posting My Training Women Article – What Do You Think?

Hi Fitness Peeps! I have seven random things to share with you today. By the way, I finished a comprehensive article titled How to Fix Glute Imbalances which I’ll post in the next day or two so stay tuned for that.

1. Testimonial from Stu McGill

There are certain people in the profession who command respect, and one of these people is without a doubt Dr. Stu McGill. Many fitness professionals have read his books, but a couple of years ago I decided to start reading all of the journal articles he’s published that I could get my hands on (which is a lot – in 2012 alone he’s been involved in the publishing of 13 different articles which I’ll share below). Anyway, he has taught me a ton pertaining to not only the spine, but Biomechanics in general, and I’m always grateful for those who have helped shape my beliefs and methods. It turns out we share an intense passion for hip extension and the glutes, so it is very meaningful to receive such an excellent endorsement from Stu. Here’s what he had to say about Hip Extension Torque: The Scientific Guide to the Posterior Chain:
