On the Forums
I’m constantly amazed at just how much my training is influenced by the people on this site. Whether you’re looking for a new piece of equipment, an unusual exercise variation or just an idea of how others approach things, head over to the forums :

Deal of the Week – Rings
Given the subject of this week’s twitterchat (details below), it’s perhaps not surprising that I’ve found myself discussing quite a few things on Jason’s Bodyweight Aficionados’ Guide to Gear list. Chief among them are the humble gymnastic rings.
No matter what your training goals are, there’s a good chance that a dose of ring training will slot in nicely. Good fun.
Twitterchat 48 – Training for Ninja Warrior : After stumbling across Ninja Warrior back in 2007, I’ve become a confirmed fan on the show. It’s fantastic to watch athletes navigate an obstacle course that’s truly challenging.
This week we’re taking a look at some of the major challenges in the Ninja Warrior course, and discussing how to train for them. Helping us to navigate this fascinating topic is Professional Freerunner Levi Meeuwenberg. Fantastic.
