Strength and conditioning and weight training activities have grown substantially in recent years—and with them much information that is of great benefit and some that is controversial. My aim is to provide information you can rely on to be as accurate and current as possible. Weight training is increasingly an exercise of choice for many people, and only with safe, accurate and reliable information can you achieve the goals toward which you commit so much energy and enthusiasm.
