First of all I like what T-Nation is doing on it’s social media approach. Get Google on Google+ T-Nation.
- Is it me or did the theme on the top of the page change? I thought it used to say “The pursuit of hardcore muscle” or something like that?
When did it change?
- When did T-Nation decide that an article like todays is worthy of front page status? I don’t normally post something like this, but todays (6-12-14) article is terrible in my opinion. MAYBE, maybe do this workout once in a blue moon as an active recovery or something but it just seemed sub-par to what I expect from this site.

I’ll reiterate what Brick said. The guy in the vid has been a long time contributor to this site and has posted many good articles and knows what he is talking about. However the article did have me scratching my head wondering…am I reading Flex magazine, MuscleMag or what? But what the hey’ it’s a FREE article so we are all winners in that respect.
Changing the banner from the Pursuit of Hardcore Muscle to Building High-Performance Muscle is in line with the change that is happening in the fitness industry today. Lets be honest here, CrossFit has and is the biggest thing right now and that’s a HUGE market to tap into.
Have you noticed the CF imagery in the articles of late? We used to complain that using bodybuilders in the articles was unrealistic but TC explained his position on that, basically saying the imagery was there to inspire! Now the focus has shifted and the images have changed or are changing to cater for the new breed of up and coming weight trainer, the high performance seeker, the functional, competitive, aesthetic CFitter type.
Just look at all the new supplements, branded clothing, exercise gear, books, dvd’s, rehab innovations that have sprung forth to cater for the ensuing masses that align themselves with the CF brand. As a business you’d be a fool not to ride that wave. Times are changing fellas. I recently had this discussion with CT in the A Crossfit Apology article.
