TypewriterStraight to the Bar is growing. In order to keep everyone up to speed with the numerous happenings in the fascinating world of strength sports, several new writers will be joining the team. Whilst I'm sure many of you are already familiar with them, here's a brief rundown :

Jason Kirby (All around strength) : Commonly known as Carpediemcat, Jason is poised to bring some wonderful creativity to the land of Personal Training. Whereas most people will glance around the gym and see plates, bars, and benches; Jason sees a collection of tools ready to get you moving in cruel and unusual ways.

Max Misch (Diesel Weasel) : Chances are you've seen Max make an incredible transformation from an enthusiastic lifter to amateur Strongman. If you're considering a similar move, keep your eyes open. He's got a lot of great information to share.

Mich Cahlon (Maspik Teruzim) : Mich is a superb writer, as well as a great proponent of strength training for women. If you're sick of hearing things such as 'girls can't do push-ups', stay tuned.

Jedd Johnson (Diesel Crew) : There's a brutal honesty about grip training, and it's something that Jedd clearly enjoys. Not only is he particularly inventive when it comes to working the hands and forearms, a glance at his competition history is enough to confirm that he's also incredibly effective. There's some fantastic reading there.

Mike Amos (Anvil or Hammer) : Mike has a great 'just get out there and do it' mentality, partnered with competition experience and knowledge of many different training methodologies. When Mike speaks, it's time to listen.

If you'd like to join the Straight to the Bar writing team, let me know.
