Contest Brief

I need a logo for my new weight training blog called Game of Iron. The blog will focus on weight training, nutrition, weight lifting, bodybuilding, fitness.

Here is what I'm thinking:

1) I love minimalism, so the logo should be as minimalistic as possible. It should look clean and elegant, but not simplistic and generic (bland).
2) The logo should convey "STRENGTH", not barbells, dumbbells, muscles or musclemen. I want something ABSTRACT, but creative.
3) My prefered color scheme for the logo: red & grey (any shades that work really well together).
4) The font should not be too flashy, but more conservative, have a clean and polished look.

Final note:
None of the above suggestions are "fixed in stone", creativity is highly encouraged, the only important rule is that it must be minimalistic and not look crowded, cluttered or heavy on the eyes. Basically, as long as the logo looks clean and minimalistic, you can be as creative as you like.

***** IMPORTANT UPDATE 06/03 *****
PLEASE READ MY TWO POSTS in the Public Clarification Board (comment section), they both contain very specific instructions on what I need.

    *** UPDATE 06/03 - PLEASE READ ***
    **********************************
    Thank you for all new entries. After reviewing the entries, I need to clearly redefine what I am looking for.

    For some reason, the majority of the logos containing barbells or dumbbells look gimmicky to me.
    Some of them look professional, but overall my final impression is always that they could be simpler, cleaner and more abstract.

    NEW RULES FOR ENTRIES:
    -NO barbells or dumbbells
    -NO muscles or musclemen
    -NO modernistic or futuristic fonts

    VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME:
    - abstract logo, simple vector, few lines and curves
    - classic, traditional, conservative font. I am 100% sure about this rule.

    The only new rule for the logo is that it suggests "STRENGTH", even if a very subtle suggestion. I want something more abstract, creative and artistic, and barbells and dumbbells look too plain to me.

    Thank you for bearing with me, please be assured that every single entry will be given careful consideration and feedback.

    *****UPDATE 01.06 - PLEASE READ*****

    Many thanks for all your contributions! There are many submissions that look great and professional but unfortunately do not match what I had in mind.
    So I decided give you four different examples of exactly what I am looking for.

    Example 1:
    Some random logos I got from Dribbble that I like and consider pretty close to my vision of "minimalist logo":
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52335000/logo/sample%20logos.png

    Example 2:
    Logo I designed myself (it sucks, but just to give you a broad idea of what I had in mind when I posted the contest):
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52335000/logo/self%20made%20logo.png

    Example 3:
    Fonts example:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52335000/logo/minimalist%20font.png

    Example 4:
    Vectors example:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52335000/logo/minimalist%20logo.png

    Please do not take 2, 3 or 4 literally, but just a starting point. Thank you for your time!
