Welcome to BarBend, your online home for all things strength. We’re a news, analysis, entertainment, and opinion platform for what’s relevant in strength-based competition and training. We post multiple times per day every weekday (and some weekends).
The content on BarBend is meant to be informative in nature, but it should not be taken as medical advice. When starting a new training regimen and/or diet, it is always a good idea to consult with a trusted medical professional. We are not a medical resource. The opinions and articles on this site are not intended for use as diagnosis, prevention, and/or treatment of health problems. They are not substitutes for consulting a qualified medical professional.
What We Cover
To start, check out the main menu: Fitness, Weightlifting, Powerlifting, and Strongman. That’s not an exclusive list, however, and we cover what we think is interesting and relevant to our readership. We believe strong makes better, and we celebrate diverse methods and modes of strength training and sport.
We welcome comments, opinions, submissions, analysis, breaking news, and profiles (see below for submission details).
