Very interesting ideas.





NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.

Getting the Hang of It...Slowly.To make up for Sunday's inadvertent max, I switched to a dynamic workout today. Dynamic it certainly was.
Workout Locations: The Park.

Sometimes it's great to be outdoors. If that feeling hits at the time when you'd usually be throwing iron around the room, consider taking a few things down to your local park. It makes a great change.

Back Support For Overhead Pressing.

The old familiars come out to play.

Weighted Climbers' Chins.

Ready to seriously build your grip and wrist strength? Have a go at these.

Quick Weighted Chin-up Test.At the start of today's workout I decided to do a quick weighted chin-up test. The last time I tried this was way back in July 2005, and I was hoping to still be around the bodyweight + 30kg mark. As it turned out I'm somewhere between 30 and 40kg; I got within a couple of inches at 40 before calling it a day.
From Side to Side.

Chin-ups, that is.



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, 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.
