Hello again!

Once again it's been a long time since the last blog update... 15 months is far too long! It's been incredibly busy at PBscience and as is so often the case, the website is the first thing to suffer. I make no apologies for this, coaching comes first and the athletes we work with will always be the priority. However, one of my own personal goals for 2014 is to give the website some TLC and make a concerted effort to add to and revise the library of resources. Back in 2012, Helen and I made the decision to remove the member only content and make everything freely available. The training session descriptions section was born and around 15 factsheets made the transition from downloadable pdf to freely availble html web pages. Sadly that left 45 titles in the limbo, hidden within the darkest recesses of the PBscience servers - one job is to get these up on the website asap. I've made a start this week and 'What's so critical about critical power', 'An introduction to training with power' and 'Setting your training zones' are all now live.

Therefore I've added a Google search bar in the top right hand corner of the site. Quite often we have material on a particular topic in a number of different sections so this should make it easier to view things all at once. I tried a few searches for things such as 'sweetspot', 'lactate threshold' and 'training with power' and it seems to work quite well...

And finally (for now), Helen worked tirelessly to upload many of the PBscience videos on to YouTube to save us a bit of space on the server. I've resurrected and updated the PBscience YouTube channel and am working through the old videos and uploading as I go along. There's material on topics such as exercise testing and other sports science topics, presentations from our workshops in years gone by and other clips that can help you get the most out of your training and preparation. Please take a look and if you like what you see, hit subscribe to keep up to date with all the new uploads.

Well that's it for now but watch this space for more developments over the coming weeks and months.
