Hi everyone, I was thinking..
On some message boards there are "sticky topics", topics locked to the top of the page that either can't be edited or can be but never move from the top.
The exercises area would be especially good for this. I was thinking of a topic with this kind of content:
Gymnastic Planches: http://www.dragondoor.com/sommer/etc/planch.htm
Ross's Bodyweight Routines: http://www.rossboxing.com/etc/etc
Proper Squat Form: http://www.exercise.com/page115/moo/proper.htm
The Pullup: http://www.pullupsrus.com/pulling/
Weight Vs Blah: http://www.etcetc.com/blah
Beneficial Exercises: http://yaddayadda.com/blah
We all have tons of links to share. Reading this board I occasionally come across a link which is exactly what I was looking for, but it's only ever by chance that someone posts it. This way people can contribute all of their favourite links on topics as specific or general as they want.
If we all chip in I'm sure we can sort out headings such as Bodyweight, O-Lifting, Gymnastics, or whatever, and then fill them in.
What do you guys think? I'm sure we can come up with enough headings and links by having everyone chip in what they have and make it a really useful resource.
Hope this helps. (Not organized yet)

http://www.thepaleodiet.com - This is the support site for Prof. Cordain’s book The Paleo Diet, but that is just the beginning. It is also an online archive of all of Loren Cordain’s research articles. Ever wonder if it is thermodynamically possible for hunter gatherers to subsist exclusively on a plant based diet? Prof Cordain builds a pretty tight case that they can not:
This answers many questions about what our diet was in the past and what it should be today.
Crossfit recommends a daily caloric intake of ~ 3800 kcal for a 170lb man. Another paper suggests that this caloric intake/activity expenditure is optimal from an evolutionary biology perspective: http://www.thepaleodiet.com/articles...0Evolution.pdf

Evolution and Health
A great all-around site. I like the integrated evolutionary approach that he takes towards all aspects of fitness, health and environment. He provides great references (Cordain, Audette, de Vany, etc.) for the most part, but, with no description of or reference to O-lifting and gymnastics, I feel he falls a little short in the exercise department.
Power Athletes Mag
This site has a lot to offer – kettlebells, gymnastic maneuvers and tips, some talk about diet and frequent interviews with training experts. A little more attention to O-lifting would help round out this site’s focus.
Evolution and playfulness in training
This site’s Panorama, Idea and Games sections are outstanding. Reading through the first two sections of this well-designed site really helps to illustrate and tie together some evolutionary notions that have been covered individually on the Crossfit message board. There are also some good articles. One of the main ideas of this site is that exercise should be primal, playful and practical. Their emphasis on enjoyment is a real aid to people like me who often fall into the trap of pushing 110% all the time. The games look amusing. The exercises, with no mention of gymnastics, O-lifting or powerlifting, were, I thought, pathetic (even Kieth, from evfit, AT LEAST does deadlifting and squats).

Zone Perfect Dieting Resource
The finest website I’ve found for anyone serious about maintaining the Zone eating habits. The website is free and provides recipes for a variety of Zone meals. All you have to do is choose block size, main ingredients, and whether you want a breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or side dish. The recipe archive has a variety of meals, complete with cooking directions. Nothing could be easier.
Low Carb Research
Mr. Yelon has done the public a great service in compiling published medical research on reduced carbohydrate consumption. His summaries are the best English translations of medical jargon we’ve seen.
Cyclical Ketogenic Diets
A fairly new site, but it has all your “one stop” shopping for the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (zero carbs for several days*up to six, one or two day carb up). The forum can be simplistic, but you can gather the basic CKD concepts there in about ten minutes.

Graham, great idea, but the forum software has no provision for "stickies." One of its many charms... ;^(
Paul, phenomenal resource - thanks!
You should NOT hae done that!!! I need to sleep sometime! Great rescources!
Paul, thanks for sharing that. I like the "not organised" part especially!
Lynne - nuts. But could we make it a page like the crossfit FAQ instead? We could use this topic if we give it a bit of a mention in the forum and then use what people have submitted as the content for the external page.
Or we could just put this here, bump it occasionally and let people search for it when it finally disapeers. (spelling?)
Ditto, Robb's comment.
My wife already complains about how much time I spend either trying to improve my health and fitness or reading about it.
Perfect timing Paul! Husband's away for the weekend and it is supposed to rain right through the week. And I finished my current book. thanks for the links!
Maybe others who have built up a list of links could do something similar on this thread? It would help people like me who aren't that organized!
Thanks buddy in advance for the square eyes i'm about to develop! :biggrin:
Guys, glad I could be helpful. :-)
If anyone is into note taking, let me know.
