Things You Should Know Thursday

I love reading fitness blogs, tweets from fitness sites and reading updates on Facebook fitness pages. There's so much out there to read, learn from, critique, question and explore! Here's a list of 20 fitness blogs from Check them out!

#20 – Weight Ladder
Weight Ladder is a blog specifically written for people who want to lose weight. I’m not sure who writes the site, but they are putting out quality posts almost everyday.
It’s tough to keep posting everyday, so if a blog can do it while still putting out great content, then I applaud them.
# 19 – The IF life
The IF life is another cool blog written by Mike O Donnell that focuses on health and longevity. One of his I posts I just came across made fun of fitness magazines, so I give him kudos there!
The IF life posts pretty often, so you can be sure there is always new content popping up.
#18 – Women’s Diet and Fitness
Angie over at Women’s Diet and Fitness has some great posts specifically for women. Some of the things she touches on frequently are diets, goal setting and burning fat.
I think this is the only women’s specific blog I posted…hmmm

Eric Cressey is kind of like the wonder kid in the fitness world. At only 26 years old, he already has a book out and is one of the most respected trainers in the world. His work with elite baseball players and rehab athletes is nothing short of remarkable.

#13Alwyn Cosgrove
Cosgrove is THE MAN when it comes to fat loss. If there’s one guy to follow if you want to learn about fat loss, it should be Alwyn. His facilities in California train hundreds of clients which means he has more hard data than any University study ever has about fat loss.
Alwyn’s also a 2x cancer survivor, great writer and really into helping people improve their lives in all areas. If Alwyn didnt pitch so many products in every post, he’d be rated even higher…
#12 – Ross Enamait
Who hasn’t seen the killer videos of Ross on YouTube? Ross writes training articles for fighters from all areas including wrestling, MMA and boxing. In addition to being a great guy, he’s a hell of a trainer.
Ross’s site is full of great content including sandbag training, wheelbarrows and anything else you can think of.
#11 – Nate Green
Nate is a young, up and coming trainer who just put out a new book that deals with working out and picking up girls (sounds good to me!)
Nate’s training regimen is more on the bodybuilding side, but he still uses very functional movements like front squats, deadlifts and pullups. On top of that, he’s a pretty cool guy too!
#10 – Stronglifts
Stronglifts is a blog written by Mehdi specifically about strength training. They have a great archive of posts and the forum is still active every day.
Hopefully Mehdi jumps back on the blogging bandwagon soon, he hasnt posted in a while.

#8 – Mark’s Daily Apple
Written by Mark Sisson, Mark’s Daily Apple is an awesome nutrition blog that focuses mainly on living a life like our ancestors did. This means eat real food, lift heavy things, run, play and get lots of sleep.
Cant say I can argue with that…

The wild man Zach Even Esh has a great blog that he regularly posts on. Zach is known for his underground strength training style. A lot of his training methods are similar to ours at Gym Junkies.
