What are some of your favorite resources you personally use or suggest to clients. An example would be for nutritional information I use and suggest http://www.calorieking.com/ and purchase equipment from http://www.gopherperformance.com/. Any sites that you have found with journals or good continuing education help? As a professional what are some of your favorite resources to use? Is there any software, websites, or forums, you like to use, I think we all agree Ideafit is a great and one of the best resources.
I am just back from IDEA 2011 and am still sorting out all the information I got. One of the best sessions I took was by Roberta Anding, MS,RD/LD,CSSD,CDE who spoke on sarcopenia and interventions through diet and exercise.
She mentioned in her talk the web site www.scandpg.org as a RELIABLE source of information about nutrition but also how to find a nutritionist in your area who is associated with SCAN (which stands for Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition).
I take peer reviewed journals and break them down to clients/patients, friends, family. I do like articles as the subjective opinions are interjected and can sway the articles intent.
Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise (ACSM member access)
Exercise and Sports Science Reviews (ACSM member access)
Clinical Journal of Biomechanics
Journal of International Sports Nutrition
Counting calories is worthless has been a proven INEFFECTIVE method for any time of weight management. Also, can hinder retention rates.
Fuel the Movement,
Thanks for the feedback Larue, I will check out those resources. I defiantly definitely take full advantage of all the things the NSCA publishes, I download them as an EPUB put them on my nook, and read them when I get time, or reference back. Thats one resource I would like to add, the Barnes & Noble Nook, Resources at my fingertips all in one place, even at the gym. http://www.jissn.com/
I am with LaRue on this. Just received Strength and Conditioning Journal in the mail today as well as the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. I read those journals to keep abreast as to what is happening in the sports and conditioning world. There is an interesting article that I can’t wait to read entitld “To Crunch or Not to Crunch: An evidenced-based examination of spinal flexion exercises, their potential risks and their applicability to program design.” Can’t wait to read it.
As far as clinical exercise is concerned as a member of the ACSM I subscribe to all of their journals. It’s the first place I go do in terms of the research related to clinical conditions.
I also purchase a lot of books related to exercise physiology.
Shane, I have the Nook. I have downloaded a few epublications on my Nook mostly through LWW.com More and more books related to strength conditioning and exercise physiology are being made available as ebooks.
