During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the Daily 'Paper' and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

Things Which Deserve More Attention : Kettlebells.Pavel with kettlebell.Although kettlebells have been around for an incredibly long time, they've only been readily available (in the US, at any rate) in the last decade or so. Without some serious leg-work, anyway. As Mike noted recently, kettlebells can now be purchased at Target. If you're considering rushing out and getting one, here are a few things that may help.


Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
