*.* 2012 General Fitness Thread *.*

Welcome to 2012! Now get your ass in top physical condition!

**From the 2011 Thread**

If you want to get back into lifting, or need a new lifting routine, START HERE:

http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wi...inner_Programs

If you have questions about the SS programs, look here:

http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ

Keep in mind that you're a novice lifter for a longer period of time than you think you are. Novice lifting can last anywhere from a few months to a year or two, depending on how hard you hit the weights and where you started.

Once you've reached the point where you don't make regular progress on the SS program, you are ready to move on to the intermediate stage, which can last you for a good number of years. Find it HERE:

http://madcow.hostzi.com/5x5_Program/Linear_5x5.htm

If you're a very advanced lifter (many, many years of CONSISTENT weight training), then there are lot of programs out there, and which one you pick is simply a matter of preference. If you're really that advanced, you should know what works for you and what doesn't by this point.

Silock, out of the gate in 2012, I have two concerns, ok 3 - Pecs, sholders and core, my legs are already extremely muscular and I want no other fitness there, outside of running. Bring the noise, champ.

Thanks

For nice pec development hit the incline press movements and fly type movements. He is right on the military presses for shoulders, you may look into arnold presses and some lat raises (both front and side). It you want those nice traps on the shoulders shrugs and a close grip upright row will do wonders as well.

How's the back?

I'd still just concentrate on the basics. It's extremely difficult to be great in all of those lifts and have areas that are "lagging." Concentrate on using good form, and those total body lifts will hit all the development you need.

Edit: That's not to say that I don't think those assistance exercises are a good idea. They are. But, I would do them sparingly, and not put most of my effort in them. I'd only do them after pushing it ****ing HARD in the big ones, because that's where the majority of the gains will come from, in both strength and muscle development.

For some that's okay, but others like to change it up a little in the gym to make it more interesting. Of course results are fun, but for some doing a few different excercises here or there adds a little to flavor to the routines for us going that aren't in bodybuilding or power lifting competitoins. Then you have guys like me with a bad back from an auto accident that can not do 2 of the big 3 any longer.

It's fine if you want to "change it up," but that change should be change in the assistance work, and not the big movements. Not doing those is just sabotaging your overall progress.

I'm about to start taking pump3d and superstimulant.

Pump3d™ is the most powerful Preworkout ATP(Strength) and C.N.S (Central Nervous System) Amplifier. By design Pump3d™ will acutely amplify the mind and bodies ability to lift more weight,and do so with a level of endurance and recovery that the Elite Athlete will be in
awe of and truly appreciate. Get the Strength and performance you always wanted.
Pump3d turns your "I-Energy" Into Hyper Drive and you will leave the gym feeling and looking Great.

SuperStimulant™ is a powerful Energy Enhancer and Fat Burner. It is in the class of Clean/Stronger stimulants but is still safe and non-jittery.
SuperStimulant™ increases your metabolism and controls your appetite Safely throughout your day.
It Mimics ephedrine's benefits (ECA) without the Side Effects, and works via similar/same pathways for Dramatic Fat
Loss.
