July Strength & Conditioning Research Questions

    Hi Bret, I have always appreciated your blog very much and I have very much appreciated this last post too. What disappoints me though is to see at the bottom of this insightful post the photograph of a woman who is one of the shallowest personalities in the fitness industry.

    I have always noticed that you always like to end your posts with the photo of an attractive female. so in this case it’s her but it possibly could have been any other pretty woman. But of all the attractive females in the business, did you really have to choose one who is a disgrace to the scientific fitness community that you (not only a trainer but also a good researcher) so well represent?

      Hi Andreas, Sorry – just trying to find a decent pic of a female doing a single leg squat (there was an awesome article we reviewed this month showing that men vs. women have pretty much opposite single leg squat patterns which was incredibly interesting). I actually don’t know much about Zuzana. I hear things from friends, etc., about her past, and I’ve seen her vids, etc. Someone informed me that she and her husband split up and went separate ways business-wise. Perhaps she’s cleaned up her act a bit? I’m a big believer in the fact that people can change. Not saying she has, but maybe she was being pressured by her husband to act a certain way for maximizing $$$? I have no clue if this is the case and I’m purely speculating. At any rate, I didn’t mean to offend and I definitely agree that she does not represent in no way, shape, or form, the scientific fitness community! (I love that term btw – “scientific fitness community”). Cheers, BC

        Hi Bret,

        I very much appreciate your answer. When I was referring to her as being one of the shallowest personalities in the business, I was definitely not referring to her “past” in her previous career: I was precisely referring to her current role in the fitness industry. Not exactly “quality fitness”, for sure.

        Thanks anyway for your wonderful blog, which is always very informative and interesting.

    Hey Bret,
    This doesn’t have to do with this particular post but I had a question about the release date of your book. I put in my pre-order and it originally said in August it would ship from Amazon. But now the ship date is not until sometime in Jan. Just wondering if you could clear this up for me! I am looking forward to the book! Thanks!
