We're back

Beach Cart
It was a great trip.

Quite apart from the mountains of family tree research we managed to come up with - not to mention the tanned, relaxed feeling - the past two weeks highlighted something particularly relevant to this site : a bag of nails and a couple of wraps make very welcome travelling companions.

With regular doses of bodyweight exercise (including exploration of the many fitness trails around that part of the world), and a daily bend or three, I feel in pretty good shape. In fact, I'll keep doing those two things; as well as the usual array of heavy stuff.

The normal article schedule will resume in another couple of hours (still unpacking things here), as well as the uploading of a photo or two. Firstly though, thanks to everyone who contributed articles in my absence. It's greatly appreciated.

Scott Andrew Bird

Scott Andrew Bird is a writer, photographer and a guy who just loves this stuff. He's been at home in front of a computer for more years than he cares to remember (OK, 35) and is now making amends for years of many mistakes noted in the De-constructing Computer Guy articles (part 2) on T-Nation.

Find out what he's up to via Twitter, Google+, Facebook; and of course his online home. Enjoy.

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, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
