On your fitness journey, you’ll come across a LOT of people who want to give you advice.
Some of this advice will be wonderful, some will be horrible. The secret is to find sources that are reliable so you
As my absolute favorite resource, Jim Stoppani has his doctorate in exercise physiology along with a minor in biochemistry from the University of Connecticut. (More of his credentials.)
Basically, he knows what he’s talking about. You can join his membership site for a small monthly fee or follow his free programs and advice all over the internet (primarily Bodybuilding.com). Not only did I see insane results from his Shortcut to Size program, but his supplement line is top-notch.
He’s fighting hard to end the lies that the supplement industry tells all of us, so we can demand better.
If you want the truth about reaching your fitness goals backed by real science, Jim is your guy.
Next in line, Bodybuilding.com. I LOVE this site and it’s where I refer most people who have questions about the fitness world. They give free programs, have articles on almost everything possible, and have the free Bodyspace community where you can meet like-minded people and track everything related to your personal fitness stats.
3. Elliott Hulse’s YouTube channels: Strength Camp and Life
I’ve written posts in the past about the impact Elliott had on my life, but almost any question you have about fitness, life, strength, how to eat for your goals, stretching, meditation, or anything else is on his channels.
While Chad’s site is primarily for men, it’s one of the few sites where I read the articles religiously. He focuses not only on health, but what it means to live a legendary life. The philosophy and purpose of your life is just as important as the physical side.
You can have all the physical strength in the world, but if you are mentally weak life will chew you up and spit you out eventually.
5. JazzyThings on Instagram
Jazzy has singlehandedly changed how I cook. There are not enough websites out there that show you how to cook food with VERY few ingredients. The brilliance of Jazzy is that most of her recipes only require a few items and BOOM. Delicious meals. They usually consist of ingredients you probably already have around your house.
Those are my top 5 sources I can’t get enough of so far in 2015. What are YOURS?
