Exrx.net has been my go-to for years. It might not be perfect, but I think it has the highest blend of objectivity, science-based approach, breadth, and physiology. No API however.

Here's a blog article I haven't posted yet. Will weight lifting, strength training, etc, stunt my or my child's growth? If you (or your child) aren't sprouting up as quickly as the other kids and you've been lifting weights, it's easy to resort to believing the old wives' tale that you're short because of the weight training. We may never know how this ...

Well it seems like you already answered your own question. You're gaining weight so that's good, so the obvious question is are you gaining fat? if yes cut down a little if not then see how it goes over the next couple of weeks.

In my experience it generally boils down to lack of blood sugar pre workout but ...

Dizziness in training can come from a variety of factors. Most everyone who's lifted very heavy doing compound barbell lifts has felt a little woozy after a few reps of heavy weights, and you'll hear a lot of endurance athletes talking about "almost passing out". But real fainting (syncope) in exercise is serious: Syncope is a common event in which there ...

Depending on your FitBit model, you may have to be moderately to extremely active for at least ten consecutive minutes to get credit for active minutes. Otherwise you get nada.

Hi Sanoj, At your current height and weight, you're not fat (healthy weight, ideal weight based on height, and BMI calculation). As a result, I highly doubt that dieting would help you achieve your goal. Since you're not fat and you have a belly fat, it's likely as a result of your current lifestyle (unless it's a medical condition). Do you sit a ...

Despite everything that is expressed by nutritionists and fitness gurus, the truth is we're all different, and we're all genetically programmed to deal with fat metabolism differently. Think about all the people you know, and how much their diets seemingly don't reflect what their size. I say this at the beginning because people shouldn't always beat ...
