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.
Over to you. Drop us a line on Twitter ( @scottbird ), or add a comment below.
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.
Straight to the Bar is the online home of fitness enthusiast Scott Bird, and looks at the many training approaches, essential techniques, uncommon exercises and superb equipment to help you become as strong as humanly possible. In short, this site is the home of all things strength.
