Default Good sources of info on lifting science?

So I've decided I want to learn more about the way the body recovers from a workout, and then builds the muscle and strength we desire.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any good books, maybe websites?

Cheers

I just read everything I can, and when I see things I want to know more about I google them. Eventually you'll find certain sites that you want to keep checking. My daily circuit of websites is Tnation, eliteFTS, JTSstrength.com, and I just started catching up on a site called breakingmuscle. Tnation has tons of articles and you can go back through the years and spend quite a while reading and learning, just be aware that some of the coaches are questionable and there is so much info on the site that it often contradicts other articles on the same site.

Basically you need to read, read, read, then come to your own conclusions based on all the info you've taken in.

Right on Linden, that's a great pursuit.

If you enjoy reading a lot, I'd recommend renting or buying some used introductory(emphasis on introductory) books on human physiology and anatomy. I imagine a great starting point would be to simply know how all the muscles and bones connect, and various types of tissue, tendons etc.

Also, if you like youtube, this guy is worth checking out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYG...Nwg_QwY0La_IbQ

His videos can be long, but he goes into great detail about various muscle groups and the optimal way to train them.

Let me know of any great books/sites etc. that you end up finding.

If you (or a friend who doesn't mind giving you their password) are at university, you can usually use those credentials to access all sorts of scientific papers. I did that during my undergrad and got access to thousands of dollars worth of info for free.

I like http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed as it has a good central location for a lot of scientific studies. I use it when I have a specific idea or question.

When I'm driving in my car alone, I like to listen to Iron Radio podcast. It comes at things from a scientific end a lot of the times and you can be selective which ones you listen too.

Textbooks are always good and the amount of resources on the internet that are in easy to read articles is huge.
