NoBull Bodybuilding Resources

Marc David here with a list of my personal sites that I use to learn more about bodybuilding and fitness.  This is not a links directory.  This is my own list of mentors and resources that I use on a regular basis to achieve my goals.  Expect updates, no affiliate links and every changing resources.

While I like hundreds of sites, articles, fitness blogs and such… I don’t use them on a regular basis.  This is a short list of the resources that I turn to almost daily and use frequently.  That does not mean these are the only resources you can use!  But since I cannot use 100+ daily resources I’m showing you my personal Rolodex.

Please note the following:

Marc David’s NoBull Quality Sites:

Mentors:

Tom Venuto -  I’ve know Tom since I first contacted him in 2003.  He’s been inspiration both personally and professionally.  He knows his stuff and filters out a lot of noise.  I followed his 100 days to competition blog to the letter and I used his workouts and such to motivate me to challenge myself.  Tom is on the East coast and refuses to visit me out there although he makes promises.  No matter, I feel like he’s my coach when I’m in the gym and he’s pushing me.

Skip LaCour – While not as mainstream at all the Internet Marketers out there, Skip is a championship natural bodybuilding with arguably the best podcast out there.  Does a weekly radio show chock full of information, with the ability to call in with questions and very little promotions.

Internet Forums and Community Support:

BurntheFatInnerCircle - Billed at the #1 fat loss support community, it truly is about the only site worth the money that I’ve found so far.  Lots of well written and exclusive articles.  Forum support.  Useful tools.  Under $10 bucks.

Bodybuilding Programs I Use:

Advanced Mass Building – An interesting twist on a lot of old age concepts by Jeff Anderson.  What I like about Jeff’s stuff is not the cartoonish images as much but how easy his programs are to follow.  They are built on the basics, use super sets which I like and require little gym time to complete.  My body responds to his selection of exercises and it makes it one less hurdle when I want a program and don’t have the time to design my own.

Optimum Anabolics – Another concept by J.A. designed earlier.  It’s like AMB above but is a little bit less advanced and progresses at a slower pace.  Which is ideal for 18+ week programs or individual who want a challenging program but need to step into it slowly.  Always a favorite and since it worked for me, I’ve still got it and use it in my mesocycles of training.

Cardio Programs I Use:

Cardio Coach – Sean O’Mally and I meet somewhere in 2006 if I recall.  He was working on some audio coaching series for cardio and I hated cardio workouts of any sort.  His programs have been the only thing I used and will continue to use when I need to boost the metabolism thru cardio workouts.  My weight training sessions are metabolic boosting enough but when I choose to do a cardio program, Sean will be my coach.
