HELPING YOU GET STRONGER SINCE 2004

The Straight to the Bar Community on Google+
Written By Scott Bird

Sadly, Google+ is no longer with us (it was shut down in April 2019).

Sorry about that.

You can still get your regular dose of Straight to the Bar on Twitter, Facebook and the various communities listed in the sidebar. As well as this site, of course.

Straight to the Bar Community on Google+

Straight to the Bar Community on Google+.

As long-term readers are doubtless well aware, I absolutely love Google+. We started having discussions on it last year (thanks again Adam), and it’s been growing rapidly ever since. Fantastic.


Now a feature has been added which helps us organise these discussions somewhat : Communities. You’ll find the Straight to the Bar Community at the URL below, together with an ongoing discussion of techniques, equipment, nutrition, competitions and a whole lot more.

Come and say hello at :

The Straight to the Bar Community page : https://straighttothebar.com/2012/12/12/the_straight_to_the_bar_community_on_google/

See you there.

Over to you. Drop us a line on Twitter ( @scottbird ), or add a comment below.

Cheers.

 

NB : if you love talking about strength-training as much as I do, you might also like to check out the weekly newsletter (there's also a daily version available). A regular dose of fitness-focussed discussions, absolutely free.
