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 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.
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/
