The 30 best websites for learning about health and fitness



It used to be that if you wanted to learn about fitness, you had to either go to school for it, or at the very least hire a personal trainer. No longer.

Now the internet is full of health and fitness articles you can read for free. Too many of them in fact, and many are downright bad. (Dr. Oz comes to mind).

However, there are a lot of amazing websites that will teach you everything you could possibly want to know about health and fitness. Here are thirty of the best.

1. Bayesian Bodybuilding. Created by statistician and bodybuilding coach Menno Henselmans, Bayesian Bodybuilding is arguably the best source on the internet for advanced training & nutritionin advice based on hard scientific evidence.

Fitness fashion – Wikipedia

A model poses wearing sportswear.

Fitness fashion is the result of a trend that consists in combining physical activities and health lifestyles with the interest and use of sportswear fashion.

The ritual (dress code)[edit]

There is a connection between sportswear and self-affirmation, that exists because of the care for fashion. The action of buying sportswear is led to the feel of being part of a community, assessing its rules and culture. People get involved in a process in which the major aim is to appear.
With regard to fitness fashion, the ritual is a ceremony which consists in the activities that take place in a fitness centre or in a gym and which are the acts of undressing, dressing, exercising, undressing, showering, grooming and dressing again.

The act of undressing, as much as that of dressing, places the individual in a delicate ceremonial position.[1]

Strings, pulleys, and inclines


Consider a block of mass $m$ which is suspended from a fixed beam by means
of a string, as shown in Fig. 26. The string is assumed to be
light (i.e., its mass is negligible compared to that of the block) and
inextensible (i.e., its length increases by a negligible amount because of the
weight of the block). The string is clearly being stretched, since it is being pulled at
both ends by the block and the beam. Furthermore, the string must be being pulled
by oppositely directed forces of the same magnitude, otherwise it would
accelerate greatly (given that it has negligible inertia).
By Newton’s third law, the string
exerts oppositely directed
forces of equal magnitude, $T$ (say), on both the block and the beam.
These forces act
