    Hi everyone,

    I'm wanting to try and learn as much about certain issues as possible from the web, and thought if everyone shared what they consider good resources we could have quite a few good links to help people reach their goals be it weight loss/bulking/nutrition or sport specific training.

    If you can post URLs that would be great and also a description, as I'm sure some people will never have heard of things such as CrossFit or what have you.

    Then if this thread goes alright I'll edit this main thread and turn it into a collection to help people. It's just because I find TSR great for finding alot of stuff out about fitness and it's taught me alot about common myths. So with some of the sites what people use I reckon it could be a good help for all levels.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Ironaddicts.com - excellent no ******** forum where you can be absolutely sure that your question isn't being answered by some skinny teenage guru whose knowledge came from Flex magazine. Excellent articles written by Iron Addict himself and copy and paste jobs from Elitefts and other reputable sources. A slightly elitist attitude but then the stuff there plain works.

    Liftism.com - now pretty much totally dead but a good deal of excellent powerlifting articles that aren't all Westside.

    Intensemuscle.com - this is mainly a bodybuilding site, and as such is full of competitors, and is where Dante Trudel aka Dogg Crapp of DC training fame posts and also home of Team Skip, but is still filled with good info much like the previous sites.

    MMIPowertraining.com - Now closed to the public and pretty much dead but when it was open and active it was full of excellent info from the same names that populate the above forums.

    I post on bodybuilding.com sometimes, but apart from the powerlifting section most people there are inexperienced and idiots, full of bro science.

    You'd better ask a good question otherwise he won't show it or he'll embarrass you.

    But there's also the rest of http://strengthmill.net/forum/index.php which isn't bad but a little slow.
