This series running every Sunday will provide links and short reviews on websites, Youtube channels, blogs and any other sources of information that should no longer be confined to be heard by the minority, but instead heard by the majority.
Elitefts.com is where it all started for me. This site provided me with a wealth of information and inspiration. Not only that but it’s many contacts and guest writers are always at the forefront of their fields, and themselves are often involved in other projects on the internet. The spin off sources of information I have found from Elite’s website alone are too many to name.
The company Elite sells gym equipment. This is how it makes it’s money. Alongside this however, is an accumulating encyclopedia of health, strength and conditioning sources including articles, training logs, Q&A’s and an extensive exercise index. The owner Dave Tate coined the phrase Live, Learn and Pass on, which encomposes beautifully what Elite is all about.
This entry below in the link provided was coincidentally shared today. Essentially it gives an overview of Elitefts’ self assigned remit as only Dave Tate could say it.
Even if his sense of humour is not to your taste, I encourage you to have a good look at the rest of the site. When it comes to honest, straight talking advice on all things training, this man and his company are at the very front of the queue.
As I mentioned the site publishes articles, which you can expect to see a minimum of 2 or 3 a day. Quality however is not sacrificed for quantity on this site. Elite also supports a number of sponsored athletes, from strongmen and women, to powerlifters, fighters, coaches and bodybuilders. These sponsored athletes each have a public log on the site which again is accessible for all to see. Furthermore, they have a public Q&A section enabling visitors of the site to ask any questions they so wish. You can expect a detailed answer and explanation from at least one of the sponsored athletes, or occasionally if you’re lucky a personal video response from Dave Tate himself.
The fantastic thing about this site is that the information is there available to all. There’s no signing on fee or monthly dues. This all sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? Don’t take my word for it, go have a look and find out for yourself.
Strong body. Strong mind.
