I don’t talk a whole lot here on my blog about the work I do for Strengthcoach.com, but things have really been picking up on the site in the past couple months and I have a lot more readers since I switched over to my new site at the end of the summer so I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you are not already a member.
Back in July, I told you that I became the assistant editor of the site. In that time, we have increased the content to where we are consistently posting at least three articles every week on various topics related to the strength and conditioning industry (training, coaching, business, etc.) in addition to posting a “Video of the Week.”
We have also been doing a cool project where we have been collecting Phase 1 programs from top coaches from a wide variety of sports so you can see exactly how the best coaches train their athletes. It’s been great so far and it’s awesome to see how things differ between coaches and between sports.
Recently I’ve begun a new project that I’m very excited about where I’ve been sending out inquiries to almost 50 top coaches and trainers with one simple question: “What is one thing you’ve changed your mind about in the past year?” I will then compile the answers into what is looking to be a very cool document.
Of course, this is all in addition to the ongoing forum discussions, which I think is probably the most valuable part of the site. Unlike other fitness products where there is a finite amount of the information, the forum is sort of the gift that keeps giving because you can really ask anything you want and know that someone in the know will give you a thoughtful response, usually in a matter of minutes or hours. The members are comprised of coaches, trainers, physical therapists, and exercise enthusiasts looking for the most up-to-date info, so there’s always a wide knowledge base and good sampling of opinions.
If you are not a member already, I really suggest you check it out. I hope that you don’t disregard my endorsement because I’m doing work for the site. Prior to being hired as the assistant editor, I literally put my money where my mouth is. I paid for a membership myself even though I was not in a position to be throwing money around because I saw the value in it and realized how valuable it is as a resource. It’s $9.95 a month, which means you aren’t going to be breaking the bank, but if you aren’t sure that you want to join right away, no worries; there’s also a trial membership that you can get for a dollar, literally. See for yourself.

In the next couple days I’m going to check back in with a training update and share come cool things I’ve doing on that front as well. I’ve received a whole bunch of questions in the past three weeks about my own workouts, so I’ll try to address some of that. If you have any questions yourself, please put them in the comments below.
Last but not least, if you missed the Goods Reads from this weekend, be sure to check that out as well.
