*.* 2013 General Fitness Thread *.*

Welcome to 2013! Now get your ass in top physical condition!

**From the 2012 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.

Getting back into the fitness gig after tweaking my back several months ago. It's amazing how quickly you get out of shape.

However the first decision I made was to switch gyms. The YMCA is charging me $89 a month for 2 people. I am going to take a look at Aspen Athletics tomorrow where they charge $40 a month for 2 people and have better hours.

They should have better equipment as well.

It felt good to get back in the gym this week. I had a month off between vacation, getting the flu, and then being out of town over Christmas. I managed to squeeze in a few soccer games in December, but didn't lift at all.

I'm sore as hell right now, but in a good way.

I am working my way back to a 400lb sumo deadlift and 350lb squat after my last hip injury while maintaining 185-190lb bodyweight. So far singles at 385 and 330 with no lasting hip pain. Hope this pain free hip lasts in 2013!

My normal workout would usually last around 1 hour and 15 minutes or so. I'd start off with a mile run on the treadmill at 9 mph (around 6 minutes 40 seconds) before moving on to either upper or lower body weight lifting. For a while now I've been dealing with some pretty sharp pain in my knees so I know its likely to be a chronic thing.

Anyway, I don't have health insurance so getting them checked out is a no go; but I've recently switched to using the elliptical instead of the treadmill for my pre-workout cardio. I have to say its probably the best decision I could have made. I don't have any more issues with the stress of pounding my knees from running and don't dread my cardio any longer.

I'm pretty young at 23 and don't ever remember having (serious) knee problems until about a year or so ago. The worst 'injury' I've ever experienced was a pulled muscle back in high school. Never had a broken bone, torn ligament or anything of that nature as far as I'm aware. Has anyone dealt with this before or have any ideas as to what I could be dealing with?

Might give a chiropractor a try. They helped me out some with a knee problem. If it is all out of alignment, it can give your knee hell. Cheapest would by try new shoes. If they're wore out, they can be hard on your knees.

at 9 miles per day, you can go through shoes pretty quickly.

Possibly your IT band, tendon to your knee from your upper leg. I have to stretch/warm up tons before my doesn't hurt. My daughter has the same problem and she's in her 20s.

Thanks, dudes.

Truthfully though, it could be anyone of those issues (or even something else entirely).

I have TERRIBLE posture, have worn the same workout shoes for the past 3 or 4 years, and NEVER stretch. Like, I stretch my hammies and quads for about 10 seconds each before starting my run. I haven't replaced my shoes because they don't seem to have any wear but perhaps I could look into a more comfortable brand. If it's my back- I'm ****ed..

I was having issues until I made my feet into a V during squats and it went away.

Maybe that's an issue too. I've noticed the pain when I do squats sometimes, which makes doing them HELL, and have always just tried to push through it.

Also, I used to use that quad-leg-extender-machine-thingy which seemed to make it A LOT worse. I stopped using that when I switched to the elliptical.

The issue now is, with my gym being so small (PF FTW!), I'm extremely limited in my leg workouts. They basically just have squat racks, quad extenders, sitting-hamstring flexors, a butt extender thingy, and the hip adductors/abductors. Its tough to do any heavy lifting (I desperately need mass in my lower body) when I can max out all those bitch ass machines..

I've been debating just dropping lower body exercise altogether and joining a flag football league or something. I figure the explosion involved in playing could help me build some muscle in my legs.
