Much of the discussion this week has centred around everyone's goals for 2019, in addition to the obligatory look back at the past 12 months. As a result, we'll be taking a week off the usual weekly summary, and taking a look at everyone's goals for the upcoming year.

Curious : what are your own plans for next year? Competitions, PRs, new equipment etc. Leave a comment below - love hearing what everyone's up to.

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.

Gymchat 213 (Roundtable) - How to get BIGGER and STRONGER.Josh Hewett.In the Gymchat Interview this week we focussed on hypertrophy, talking to Personal Trainer Conor Kelly. If packing on a bit of muscle is one of your goals, go back and watch that one. Great discussion. This time Josh will be hosting a roundtable discussion talking about training for both size and strength. How to start, the right way to tackle both at once, and a whole lot more. Joining him will be Suneet Sebastian, Paul Marsland, Kevin Hart and Jason Paris. Fantastic.

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.
