Welcome to Google+

Get ready for some great conversations.


UPDATE 12/12/12 : We've started up a Community page on Google+, specifically for Straight to the Bar. Here you'll find detailed discussions on techniques, equipment, nutrition, competitions and a whole lot more.
Come and say hello at :

The Straight to the Bar Community page : https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/100569524789778696565

See you there.

Over the past week or so I've been exploring Google's new social service, Google+ (thanks Adam). Absolutely fantastic.


There's already been a lot written on what it is, what it's likely to become, how to use it and so on (I've listed a few of my favourite resources below). In the meantime though, a quick question :

Who'd like an invite? Just let me know your email address, or head over to my profile page, sign in, and follow the links.

See you there.

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.
