Gymchat 200 - Beginning Powerlifting (with Chadwick Haines)

Where do you begin?


How do you enter the world of Powerlifting - move from 'training hard' to competing? How do you find the meets, and what can you expect when you get there?
This week we'll be discussing the ins and outs of this change with serious fan of the iron Chadwick Haines (aka Horse From Hell), who's recently made the transition himself. Joining Chad (and keeping us all on track) is Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine. Should be a great one - see you there.

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 join us on the Hangout and 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.

Have you ever been unable to train due to injury? How do you minimise the risk of it happening again?

Looking At : Week Ending May 11, 2014.

During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, Facebook 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.
