(Post by Julia)

If you haven't been checking out my training log over at EliteFTS, shame on you! As mentioned yesterday, we've got a big move ahead of us. So in the midst of my busy schedule, training by myself on some days, and trying to put back on some muscle, I've decided that something simple is going to be the best for me right now.

If you haven't checked out Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 book, you're missing out. While it's nothing mind-blowing or innovative, it outlines a great way to build up some raw strength and put on some muscle. If you don't want to have to think (which, sometimes, let's be honest, it's nice not to think) then this is for you.

So far, it's been going well. Having 2 kids in less than 2 years, training has been a bit sporadic. My bench strength has remained relatively the same, but my lower body work suffered. So, I'm interested to see how this will help build my raw strength and add some muscle back on to my quads, hamstrings and glutes.

Also, if you missed the EliteFTS twitter chat we had last week... whew! You missed out. Several of the EFS team members answered questions (Live) from readers. If you want to read back on some of that chat, you can go to In the search box enter #EliteFTS. The post will read backwards, but we talked about some great things. So be sure to check it out. And if you did miss it, then you missed out on a chance for some free EFS t-shirts.

Stay tuned because we'll be having another one sometime in the near future.

Inside Out & Magnificient Mobility

We've been very busy over here at the Iron Edge. We'll be moving in 2 weeks, so needless to say, we've got alot to do. In the meantime, Mike Robertson (a friend of mine from college) is having a huge sale on some of his products that he created with Eric Cressey and Bill Hartman. They have a new product coming out soon, so they are discounting their Magnificent Mobility and Inside Out stuff. If you haven't seen any of these products yet, check them out. Well, worth it!

Go to Mike's product page and enter FALL09 in the checkout code box and you'll get 30% off!
