    I apologize in advance if this has been posted already.

    John Berardi/Precision Nutrition just opened up his forum to non-customers a few days ago.

    This is what I am most impressed with so far:

    Access to the new Precision Nutrition Exercise Database with high resolution video demonstrations of over 450 exercises (each exercise from multiple camera angles).

    http://www.precisionnutrition.com/members/exercise.php


    I like the exrx.net site, but I think these videos rock.

    Not affiliated with them, just thought it was a great resource to share.

    I didn't realize that the precision nutrition forums and database were now open to non-customers or I would have been referring this to other people as well. I really love the three camera angles as well.

    Also, with these and other quicktime videos, I find if you hit the pause and then drag the button on the bottom of the screen to control the movement of the video, you can really focus in on each phase of a movement.

    I think these PN videos have already helped correct minor flaws in my deadlifts and good mornings and I think they are going to be a very valuable tool for me going forward.

    The main thing it needs is a "muscles used" type of explanation. Maybe with written exercise instructions as well. However, the vids are great!

    I've not been reading PN forums much lately, and also didn't realize they were now public.

    It would be great, but I'm having trouble getting the link to work.

    I hit exrx.net for the 'muscles used' and a small demo and then I used to hit YouTube for vids, but I don't 'trust' half the stuff I see out there. Most of people's form sucks, or they are just out there for an ego boost. I want to see it executed exactly as it ~should~ be done so I don't carry on their bad habits. I agree though, a nice little blurb explaining the whats, whys and hows of the exercise along with the 3 angle video would be perfect.

    You need QuickTime installed to see the videos.

    That's the part I'm having trouble getting going. I got an activation number from them but when I try and use it, I keep getting sent to a screen that wants me to become a customer. Which I assume, from the original post here, is not necessary.

    Zen, I had the same problem you are when I first logged in. After I clicked on the link to make sure it was activated I just went back to the main page and logged in and it worked fine. I think they may still be working out some bugs to make it free??
