Checking Out : The Natural Method

Looks great.

Weighted Vest Workouts

Looks good.

Next on the reading list here : Jonathan Thompson's 'Weighted Vest Workouts'. A close look at this deceptively simple piece of equipment; how to load it up (in all kinds of ways), and how to put it to work. There's also a spot of detail on ankle and wrist weights.

The kindle version's already available, the paperback edition comes out Feb 17th.

NB : If you've been training for a while, chances are you already know many of the exercises it outlines. However, if you're just beginning your strength-training journey, this looks like a great addition to your collection.

Jonathan Thompson's 'Weighted Vest Workouts'. Good stuff.

Personal Trainer Magazine

Looks great.

Although I'm not a Personal Trainer myself, I'm very much interested in the world of fitness. From both the client and business sides of things.

With that in mind, I'm certainly intrigued by John Spencer Ellis' Personal Trainer Magazine. Available in both PDF and Kindle forms (same content, it's just personal preference), I'll be checking it out tonight. Review soon.
