Strength is Corrective -- Bret Contreras, DeanSomerset.com

You had to be living in a cave this week to NOT see Bret Contreras's name everywhere. Of course, this wasn't by accident -- Bret just released his 2x4 Strength program, and he made appearances on fitness blogs all over the net in anticipation of this (you'll notice Bret appears on our list this week several times, on several different sites). In this post on Dean Somerset's site, Bret shares his history with back injury, corrective exercise, and lifting -- and how getting strong got him pain-free.
