My First Time in Print

Flare and Testosterone Magazine

On August 25, 1999, I appeared on a show in Toronto called Breakfast Television. As luck would have it, the editor-in-chief of Flare Magazine was in the audience. She approached me after my segment, handed me her business card, and asked if I would be willing to submit an article on the subject that I just discussed, which was posture evaluation.

I said “Sure!” and two weeks later I submitted a whopping 10-page, 5237-word article titled “Woman's Posture from a Man's Perspective.” The article was accepted and a condensed version made it to print.

That was enough to get me started!

I then wrote a short piece on “Sicilian Crunches and Calf Machine Shoulder Shrugs” that I sent to strength coach Charles Poliquin for his thoughts. He in turn sent it to TC Luoma, the editor-in-chief of Testosterone Magazine. TC liked the piece, published it, and asked me for more material. The rest is history.

By the way, this was my first article in the print version of Testosterone Magazine:
