    All your posts provide uncensored, b/s free information and each has something great to be learned from any one who decides to read.

    That being said, by far – 39 Ways Not to be Like Everyone Else is def my overall favorite of 2010.

    I’ve read every post you put out last year… and I’ve learned a lot. Thanks for sharing your insights. I think the the “Training to Failure” series actually helped me the most. I’m surprised not to see them on here.

    I am feeling a lot better after training sessions and not so beat up.

    I hope this is your best year ever, bro! ;)

    “Commit to benching 250, overhead pressing 135, squatting 315 and deadlifting 405″

    These are my new goals. I’m so glad I found you before I made the typical mistakes you frequently write about. I can’t say it enough…your program works! Thanks J

      @Britt:

      The bench and press weights are light against the squat and deadlift, No ?

    I just found this site last year, and many of the posts have opened my eyes on making training simpler and easier. You just don’t have to be in the gym for 2 hours, 5x/week anymore to see results. Like a breath of fresh air.

    Something I’d like to see an aritcle on is an opinion of the new “Four Hour Body” Book that everyone is raving about. I’ve glanced at it, and some of the diet principles mirror what I see here, which is interesting. The workout routines… 5 second eccentrics, not so much :)

    I have been following your posts for the last few years and always enjoy your insights and expertise. I like it so much I became a member and have MGS, 3XM and Minimalist programs. I would have to say the “It ain’t Strength Training unless you are getting Strong” would be my favourite for the year. Keep up the great work!

    Your posts are nothing but pure quality. Your stuff flat out works, bro. Keep it up.

    Jayson, can you do a post on tips on how to get bigger arms and shoulders. Mine suck and it seems like everything else is growing steady but that area of my body is very stubborn. Been training for 4 years or so now. I went through your triple threat muscle. Great program! Size and strength gains very good and most of all I stayed injury free. Now I’m starting Rampage workouts and was wondering if you have any advise. Thanks for you time.

    Hey Jay

    Your writing is always quality and entertaining.

    “You must have the wrong guy” would have to be my fav for the year..awesome…

    Thanks man

    I have only been following your blog since October 2010 and i must say … You’re content is UNREAL and so helpful. I’ve only been working out for few years now and I always thought I was training like an athlete by incorporating “cardio” into my strength training like a total dumbass. I wish I knew of you when I started working out at 16 but what can you do, ya live and ya learn eh? … Well I just wanted to say that I’ve looked through the archives on your site here and with your ample amount of strength & conditioning knowledge I have set a new goal for 2011 … and that is to get BIG. I’m a fairly tall guy (6’1″) and have already put on some weight since i graduated high school (went from around 160 to 184 now) … and while I have some lean mass, it’s not head turning muscle which is what I’d like. I’m about to start MGS next week and simply just can’t wait. Thanks for all you do Jason, god bless.

    PS The post that changed my mentality on how train (and convinced me to purchase MGS) was definitely “It Ain’t Strength Training Unless You’re Getting Strong” … What a way to end the year man, Thanks.

    Sorry for the second post but I just wanted to add in that as far as what content I’d look forward to in 2011 … I’d have to say that I’ll be super excited whenever you post a new program to purchase (I just bought the sweet MLK deal you put up for such a low price and THANK YOU! I know you put your blood, sweat, and tears into all you do so that was a pleasant surprise)

    Hey Jason, just FYI some of the links are duplicated and don’t lead to the title article. I was going back through and rereading the top posts of the year and noticed this. Here’s the two in question:
