Gymchat 189 - Training Athletes II (with Kyle Bohannon)

Run faster, throw further.


Thanks again to everyone who joined us for the discussion last week. Much appreciated.

As we received so many questions afterward (and as the audio quality was a little sketchy in parts), we'll be holding a 'Part II' this week.

NB : If this is the first time you're joining us for one of the Video Gymchats, welcome. There are three basic ways to watch this (depending on whether you want to ask a question or two, or just sit back and take it all in) - full details here. However you like to do it, we've got you covered.

To learn how to put it to work, swing by the Guides area.

Gymchats : What Time?.What Time? Photo by nicksarebi.For more than three years now we've been holding the Gymchats (previously called the Twitterchats) at the same time each week - 9pm Eastern (US). That's worked out well. Having said that, it's probably about time I asked again. If you could choose the ideal day and time to watch them - and to ask a question or three - what time would you pick? On a weekend? Early in the morning on a Thursday? Late on a Tuesday night?
Looking At : Sep 23, 2012.Echo Point, Blue Mountains. During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the Forums and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

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.
