I’ve decided to start compiling my own “articles of the month” that go up here on EliteFTS. I’ve been an avid reader of EVERY article for roughly the past 6+ years, and it’s the sole place that I go to increase my knowledge base, lifting, coaching, and personal growth. If you aren’t reading the articles on this site, you are really doing yourself a disservice! With that being said, here is the month in review of articles I either found interesting, useful, or just down right awesome. These are articles that spiked my interest and only reflect my views, but check em out and you can expect these every month for a LONG time. Enjoy!

Due to multiple commitments, the Quick Picks Series has be dwindled down to the top 10 articles of the month that I enjoyed reading. While there are nearly 60 articles to sift through, picking just 10 is tough. I still highly encourage you to read ALL the articles, but if you're cramped on time, these are where I would start.
