9to5strength.com was made as a resource for helping people get in shape, and while we have spent countless hours learning/reading about and practicing weight training, there’s no reason to write it all down when there are sites with endless amounts of information.

One of the best sites around for those looking to build muscle, train for a sport, get stronger, shed fat or improve their fitness is T-NATION. I’ve been a member since 2009 and the vast majority of my knowledge since my Sports Science degree has come from articles on this site.


If you have a particular topic you are interested in e.g. weight loss workouts, I recommend using their search bar to find relevant articles. There is also a Beginner forum as well.

I also urge you to check out the Training Logs forum. While there are a lot of advanced lifters, you may find some just starting out and see how they structure their training (some include nutrition too). I’d also encourage you to start a Log of your own, state in your intro that you are a beginner and would appreciate pointers, and as you post each session other users will be able to post advice to help you get the best results from your sessions.

CAUTION: These sites make money from selling supplements. If a workout program or diet plan makes claims about a certain supplement or insists you buy it, it is likely exaggerated. There are only a few supplements you need to consider, and these will be listed in out nutrition section.
