Video : Why MOST Trainers Are Broke (And How To Remedy That) (Mind Pump Show 1810)
It’s fair to say that the past couple of years have been both traumatic and disruptive for everyone. This podcast looks at the fitness industry’s slice of that – specifically the journey of a Personal Trainer who’s ready to start (or re-start) things.
Gymchat 278 – TBAWe’re still finalising the details for this week’s discussion. I’ll post them on the blog (and Twitter, Facebook etc) shortly. In the meantime, take a look at some of the previous episodes of the show – (there’s an example below, and a full list here). And if you’ve got any questions or comments on the various topics discussed, we’d love to hear them. Just leave a note below the video.
NB : if you’d like to take part in a future episode – either as an interviewee, or as a guest host – just drop us a line. Love hearing how everyone else trains.
Checking Out : STRIG Mini (Portable Massage Device)Looks good. The STRIG Mini is a handheld massage device with various blades for applying a little pressure when needed. It’s also rechargeable, for impromptu workouts in remote locations or whilst travelling. A little video :

Ever Tried Kettlebells?
If you've seen people using them but never taken the plunge yourself, here are the ones I use personally. You can also pick up a book/DVD/course if you want to learn how to put them to work.
Tip of the Week : Neck Bridge Progressions
Each week we publish a number of tips and techniques via Twitter, the blog; and the newsletter. Wherever you are, there’s always a way to improve what you’re doing.
This tip is in the form of a video which we first saw back in 2008; I was reminded of this technique after a brief discussion of neck training over on Google+. It’s a very interesting series of neck bridge variations.
