Is it me or is the strength-training industry getting more badass? Here are a bunch of good reads from the past couple of weeks. There is so much good stuff in here it could turn Pee Wee Herman into Ronnie Coleman overnight! Here are 127 links for which you’d better be grateful – I spent 7 hours on this blog tonight!
Bret Contreras Articles
Article of the Week
6. Patrick Arnold just started up his own blog. You may know him as the Father of Prohormones and the Creator of “The Clear.” Anabolic steroids aren’t my thing but I don’t judge.
7. Mladen Jovanovic just started up his own blog. This guy is crazy smart and is an excellent resource to the strength and conditioning profession. He may in fact be one of the smartest guys in the biz. I definitely recommend that you read his stuff!
8. You Gotta Love a Guy Who Calls Himself Peter “Fucking” Baker and has a Blog Entitled “Death Metal and Deadlifting.” If you enjoy profanity like me, then check out this site. This guy’s as ruthless as they come!
