Welcome to the Joe Weir Strength Blog!
This is where I'll be posting my thoughts on a number of topics, or at least the ones I know about. From time to time I'll dabble with some other topics but for the most part I'll be ranting, uhh I mean talking, about training! If there's anything you'd like me to talk about by all means let me know and I'll be sure to include it.
NEW! In addition to my usual topics I'm expanding my blog to include martial arts, martial arts training, MMA, and all the fun stuff that goes along with it!
I like to keep things short and sweet, so thanks for dropping by and checking out my blog!
