Also, the level […]

Hate Mail, Equipment Recommendations, And Honest Training Information

I usually delete hate mail and comments containing personal attacks for the same reason I avoid arguing with idiots; the time it takes to read and respond to them could be used more productively to write articles and books that actually help people. However, some times arguing with idiots and responding to these things can be […]

Why I Am No Longer A “Natural” Trainee

One of the things I dislike most about many bodybuilding and fitness books, magazines, and web sites is the use of photos of steroid users to promote supplements, programs, and diets, without explicit discussion of steroid use. Even worse than not mentioning the steroid use, which knowledgeable readers will infer, is when steroid users lie […]

New Comment And Contact Policies

I enjoy writing and talking about exercise. If I didn’t, I would have quit long ago and would be doing something else. However, this is not just a hobby or recreation for me, it’s what I do for a living. After spending most of the past two decades training people I have decided to focus […]

The Renaissance of Exercise

A few months ago while editing Elements of Form I started investigating language and consciousness and other aspects of psychology in an effort to better explain the details of exercise performance, along with important concepts like the real versus the assumed objective and the appropriate mindset for true, high intensity effort. I decided to completely […]

Site Update

I apologize for the lack of updates and for not being able to answer all e-mail quickly, but all other projects are on hold while EoF is finalized. Yes, it is way behind. I’d rather be late than not be happy with it, and I’m picky. If you want to get the absolute most out […]
