Reader Submissions

When I started this site I intended it to be driven by reader submitted content. That has been partially true as I often create posts based on inquiries or material sent to me. However, for the first time I am formally opening 70′s Big to reader submitted articles. This doesn’t mean anything and everything will be accepted. Your submission must:

- Not exceed 1,000 words in length, and preferably be closer to 500.
- Include a visual aid (either an image that is under 500×500 pixels or a YouTube video) and cite where this visual came from.
- Be concise with good grammar and punctuation.
- Include a short, one paragraph summary (like an abstract) at the beginning of the e-mail to explain what the submission is about.
- Send submissions to

If any of the rules above are not followed, then the submission will be deleted. Jacob Cloud is also now an editor and will oversee reader submissions with my help. If a submission is poor in quality, irrelevant, pointless, or not interesting or funny, we reserve the right to not use the submission. It’s okay to submit things that are in conflict with my objective and subjective training methodology or opinions, but you will need to make a compelling argument for doing so (this sentence is here to show you that we won’t be denying conflicting pieces just because they disagree with us). Time is a valuable thing; do not waste ours with poor articles. If you are worried about wasting your own time, it would be acceptable to send an e-mail asking if we’re interested in your topic.

Any or all of the above rules could change the more Jacob and I discuss it or sift through submissions. Have fun with it. Most of the people that read 70′s Big are great people who love to train and are really funny, so if you choose to write something, direct it at such an audience.
