*.* 2014 General Fitness Thread *.*

Welcome to 2014! Now get your ass in top physical condition!

No one else started it so here it is!

**From the 2013 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.

One of the first things you're taught is that if a lift goes behind you, you take a giant step forward while lunging to get forward quickly.
I didn't watch the video. I thought he was overhead squatting.

Agree on the bailout technique if you are lifting out in the open.

I specifically mentioned the video so you'd watch it.

Come on Silock, you're better than that!

Here's what I've noticed about Crossfit lately around here:

Whereas at one time, a Crossfit gym was filled up with people who looked pretty ripped and in shape, the "boxes" are getting filled up with more and more fatties. I suppose it's the inevitable result of a type of workout becoming popular. People see folks who are in shape doing Crossfit. They think it's going to be the miracle cure that finally gets them to lose weight, so they join a "box." Then the same problems that plagued them before (lack of dedication, poor metabolism/genetics, bad diet, etc..) will still plague them in CF.

I predict this leads to a decreasing popularity for Crossfit among those who actually are dedicated to being fit and in shape, because the perception of program will change among the "fit" community (it's already, as evidenced by this thread, experienced significant backlash).

It's not super gruesome. Except for the fact that when you see him go down, you know he's paralyzed.

It's entirely possible that it's not a form thing with you, Omaha, but that Crossfit is still the reason you're injured. Doing anything that puts a lot of stress on a joint many times over can injure you, even if performed correctly.
I had been working on my cleans quite a bit. I tend to pull with my arms a little bit & I think that's to blame. I think I've got that catch down. I'm not doing cleans right now. I'm trying to let my elbows rest.

I think crossfit should only be used by people who know what they are getting into and with proper training.

Isn't that why they have beginner classes? To teach the lifts?
