Where do you get your information?

So, the other day, my wife and I were discussing fitness (who knew?) and she says that she is surprised with all of the misinformation in fitness given the abundant resources of the internet.  My response was that with all of the correct info on the internet, there is also a substantial amount of false information out there.  Pretty much any Joe Schmoe can shell out a couple bucks and have a website to spew false information.  I mean, after all, the shake weight has a website.

Anyway, I figured with this post, I would give the readers a bit of insight as to where to I get my information.  At least online anyway.  It's also important to note that the best way to learn is to actually get in the gym and do it!

Blogs I Read

Strength Basics - This blog has lots of useful information that includes book, article, and equipment reviews.  It's also updated daily, which is a good thing.

Mike Robertson's Blog - Plenty of good info on corrective exercise and strength training here.

Diesel Crew - All around awesomeness.

Eric Cressey - Lots of good information on corrective exercise and strength training.  Especially things baseball and shoulder related.

Thomas Plummer - Mainly a fitness business blog.  The best thing about this one is that he doesn't censor himself, and he's not afraid to step on toes.

Elite Fitness Systems - Not really a blog, but a good resource none the less.  They update the site with new articles several times a week.  I may be a bit bias to this one myself.


Strength Coach - Strengthcoach.com is a pay site, but the $9.95 per month I pay to belong to it is well worth it.  Not only to you get access to some of the top strength coaches in the country, but the weekly articles are also great.

Exrx.net - There are some pretty knowledgeable people on this forum.  There's also a place to log your workouts for comments and suggestions.

Marunde Muscle - Some of the strongest men and women on the planet post here.  Who else would you rather have answer your questions? 

These are just a few of the places I get information.  It's also important to remember, like I said earlier, that the most important place to find information is in the gym.  Also, I should point out that I am not an affiliate of ANY of the websites.  I do not receive any compensation from you clicking the links.  My motivation for posting them here is to share information.
