    Climbing is good for enduro trackies, less so for sprinters - if you're gonna train for either though, learn to love the wind trainer.

    No joke but if if I could move to Manchester I would. I'm part English, have family there, and have lived in the UK before, so it wouldn't entirely be because I was stalking some random track guru...

    Text below is lifted from a WW thread on sprinting. I'm definitely a lurker, and there's a few guys I follow/borderline stalk online, because they've proved that know their game inside and out. 11.4'...

    He still posts on Weight Weenies from time to time, seems to be a snark magnet over there though, which is baffling.

    Ferg's a great coach, he'll sort you out.

    I learned to squat from reading starting strength about a dozen times over 18 months, and every time I tweaked something or started missing reps I'd go back and re-read the specific chapter, which...
