Today’s blog is probably long overdue, it just took a question from one of our clients that triggered me to get it out to you guys. I was talking with a client this morning who mentioned to me that she really likes following our blogs, she asked if I had any idea where she could get more information like the stuff we put out. Of course! Just as our clients are always learning new things, we’re striving to do the same! With this in mind I put together a short list of blogs I myself (and many AFS staff) follow for inspiriation, education, and even a little entertainment. Check them out!

Bret Contreras, or as he’s more commonly known: “The Glute Guy,” is a great resource for info on exercise technique, biomechanics, and strength and conditioning.

For great info on how to build a butt and so much more, he’s the guy.
