other blogs i read...
Get Fit Slowly - I love these guys, mostly I love their honesty and reading about their ups and downs with weight loss and fitness.
Robb Wolf - Great advice and guidelines for the paleo diet, also a good geeky paleo laugh if you listen to the podcasts.
Sage Burgener's blog - This is the best blog ever. Not only can you get some great oly lifting advice, but Sage is also a world renowned rapper, and she puts awesome oly lift raps up on occasion.
Barbells and Bacon - Enough said. But really, this longtime trainer knows his stuff, crossfit wisdom, advice for trainers and athletes, life wisdom. He's great!
*disclaimer: During my CrossFit workouts I have a least 1 trainer supervising me and I have 4 endurance coaches helping me with other aspects. I would not recommend doing this on your own, so if you are following my workouts unsupervised I cannot make any guarantees. Oh and I also have a great doctor and acupuncturist who know my goals and medical history to keep injuries at bay.
