Introducing the mini-Gymchats - the 'Gymchat Bites'.

Just 10-15 minutes of fantastic discussion.


I love these discussions - can't get enough of them. Superb ways to find out how everyone else is training, and benefit from their experience. Fantastic.
In addition to the regular full-length Gymchats, we've decided to create a series of shorter conversations : Gymchat Bites. Just 10-15 minutes in length; same great topics. Good fun.

We'll be holding the first of these shortly. For everyone who's joining us, the details are :

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.

NB : For a complete list of everything we use and recommend, swing by the reviews area. And of course the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

Who : Personal Trainer Derek 'D-Rock' Peruo, Kirk Fontaine, and You
Topic : Supplementation
When : Tuesday Nov 20, 11am EST
How : Google+ Hangout. Follow either Kirk or Scott for details on the live feed.

See you there.

NB : If you're keen to fire in a question or three, be sure to get there early. In addition to Derek and Kirk, only the first 8 people to join us on the Hangout (and here's how) will be able to join in the conversation. Everyone else will be able to watch, but not ask questions.


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, 33) and is now making amends for years of many mistakes noted in the De-constructing computer guy articles (part 2) on T-Nation.

Stalkers may wish to track his every move via Twitter, Google+ or Facebook; everyone else is cordially invited to hop over to his online home. Enjoy.

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. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
