Resources

ResourcesI didn’t invent all of these ideas.  As much as I would like to claim credit for all of the information I relay on this site, it’s just not the case.  There is a lot of great information out there that I used and still use to help me in my fitness goals and that’s exactly what I’ll share here.  It can be intimidating to sort through the massive amount of information that is out there, so hopefully the resources below can help narrow your search and provide you a jumping off point to finding even better content.

 

 

Family

  • The Little Gym – We love the Little Gym in our area and we’ve bringing our daughter there since she was around one and a half.  It’s great to get the kids moving, especially in the winter, and they’re not hardcore gymnastics like some other places.  They also have a parents night out once a month (as long as they are potty trained) where they provide dinner and fun activities, and will give you make-up classes if your kid misses one.

Exercise

  • Bodybuilding.com Exercise Guide – A great way to find an exercise for any part of your body.  You can filter on the equipment you have as well as other factors, and it also provides videos and user reviews for each exercise.
  • Shortcut To Shred – Not for beginners in my opinion, but overall a good workout program.  This is especially true if you’re looking to challenge yourself.
  • Lean Body Trainer – An excellent workout program for all skill levels.

Nutrition

  • Bodybuilding.com Nutrient Database – An easy way to find what exactly is in what you are eating.  It may be easy to see the contents of say a protein bar but what about an apple?  Or a certain size piece of chicken?  This is key to figuring out what you can eat based on your target macros.
  • Sample Macro Based Nutrition Plan – A starter spreadsheet I put together to help you plan out your macro based nutrition plan.  Instructions and example values are included.
