It’s fair to say that I’ve done a reasonable amount of writing over the years – everything from brief articles to full-length books. A few examples :
Articles and Blogs
I write regularly for a number of sites; on a variety of cooking, environmental and strength-training topics. Here’s just a sample :
- The Ultimate Guide to Freezing Food (part I, II)
- Saving Water (part I, II, III, IV, V, VI)
- Inspiring Transformations
- What to look for when buying fish
- Making the most of Libraries and Family Tree Research Centres
- Getting your first kettlebell
In addition to these, I’m the editor of (and regular contributor to) :
and many forums, boards and social networks.
I’ve written several ebooks, most of them elaborating topics which are mentioned on Straight to the Bar. These include :
- Buying your first kettlebell (a revised version of the article I wrote for Harrow Drive, reprinted with permission)
- 10 Essential Conditioning Tools
- How to paint a kettlebell
Newsletters & Communities
I also contribute to a number of Newsletters and Community Sites, such as :
The Strength & Fitness Newsletter
This is the official newsletter for Straight to the Bar, and is delivered (via email) once per week (Mondays). You’ll find details and the signup form here.
The Straight to the Bar Daily
As the name suggests, this one comes out every day and is a gathering of the various things being discussed by the strength-training community : Trainers, Coaches and people who simply enjoy spending a bit of time with the iron.
The Better Sleep Nightly
Again, this is a daily gathering of news, information and discussions regarding my favourite strength-training recovery method : sleep. If you’d like to improve yours, grab this.
Finally, I help write questions for the Gymchats. Fantastic discussions – absolutely love them.
For the uninitiated, a brief description :
The Gymchats are discussions on various aspects of strength-training, held weekly (typically for an hour). A mix of an interview and an open conversation around a particular topic, they’re moderated by Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine.
To get an idea of what I mean, here are a few examples :
If you’d like to be interviewed in an upcoming Gymchat, just drop Kirk a line. He’ll help work out a date/time that suits you both.
As you can see, I love writing. Feel free to check out any of the pieces above, and drop me a line on Twitter ( @scottbird ). Look forward to hearing from you.
