feather and notebook
The notebook is essential

Welcome to a collection of my writings. Articles and blogs on various training related topics. There is a central place for discussions on Strength, Flexibility and Posture within these pages.

The aim of this project? Answering that age old question what is balanced physical training? Why is it important? … and finally how do we go about doing it in the best way? Hopefully something auspicious will come from this inquiry.

Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email – feedback is always welcome and appreciated.
