Great guest post today from Jamie Hale.

"Organic fruits and vegetables often synthesize beneficial secondary plant metabolites such as polyphenolic antioxidants, but may also produce naturally occurring toxins. Animals produced organically may have the potential to possess higher rates of bacterial contamination than those produced conventionally, since organic production generally prohibits antibiotic use."

My training around pain article was re-posted on the PTDC today.
A little spiel on some of the problems with the new wave of "corrective exercise specialists" and the like, as well as some practical work-arounds that trainers can apply immediately.

New article just published. It's long, but I think this one should be pretty handy for personal trainers. 

A ton of practical examples for working around common painful complaints from clients, while staying within a personal trainer's scope of practice.

Last re-post from the other site.

I wrote about the most boring exercise in existence, just because I hadn't seen a decent rationale for what the plank is and isn't, or does and doesn't do, nor how to use it appropriately, anywhere else.

Here's another one I've re-done from the other site, and the first time I succumbed to writing a "list" article. I feel it's pretty solid though, and though the principles apply to most, it's definitely aimed more at the younger guys. So if you've got a son/younger brother/friend/student etc. who's just embarking on some weight training, then I suggest sharing this one with them.
