*.* 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.

That's fine. But there are a lot of factors that go into that. Could be commitment. Could be mindset. Could be a warped perception due to time. Could be that he's absolutely right.

For instance, I'm in the best shape of my life right now, and I'm 33. I don't do Crossfit. Does that invalidate my experience? Of course not. I'm not invalidating his, either. I know scientifically that I'm faster, stronger, and have more endurance than the last time I was "at my peak." There are times that I don't "feel" that way, but I have the numbers to back up that even though I may feel slow or fast on some days, I know what the actual numbers are, so I can accurately gauge my relative fitness.

Anecdotally, I have a few friends that do Crossfit, as well. Their gym doesn't suck (ie high reps with bad form for everything), but I'm still in better shape than they are. They take it seriously, and go 5 times a week. And I'm still stronger and faster with more endurance. Again, that isn't meant to invalidate what they do or say that my way is better.

All I'm trying to say is that there are many ways to achieve a goal. For me, Crossfit is way too expensive and way too "vague" in its goals (in addition to the added danger factor). Your mileage may vary. But Crossfit certainly isn't the only way to be strong and fit, even in a generalist sense.

I'm curious, what are your goals? You are obviously a really big numbers guy as it relates to your workout, so what is it that you are attempting to attain?

Crossfit seems to have certain goals as it relates to improvement of numbers/time on the repetitions and exercises. They even have established a end "game"/contest/competition where these goals are rewarded and judged against other competitors. That definitely doesn't seem like a vague end goal by any means.

Anywho, it's interesting to see the rapid development and popularity of Crossfit. I was wondering why all these people in the gym were doing these plyometric type of exercises, and it seems that Crossfit incorporates this concept into their routine along with Olympic style burst strength lifting and body weight burst/strength exercises.

I'm trying to figure out which is the chicken and which is the egg in terms of who came up with this type of workout. It seems that the guy at Gym Jones and the guy at Crossfit seem to have put this together at the same time. (For those not familiar, Gym Jones is the guy/gym/program that trained the actors and stunt guys for the movie 300, Captain America, Thor and officially trains Seal and Special Ops military teams for the Department of Defense.) They seem similar although Crossfit has taken off nationally whereas Gym Jones seems content to be a uber-level private workout facility/program/concept.

Anyway, I digress.

I throw some stuff in like Crossfit does in my own routines once I'm up and running so I'm kinda usually doing stuff like that anyway. I'm not sure about the timed Olympic style lifts though in the competitions, though the Crossfit Games themselves seem interesting.

I'm not sure, never looked in to it. I was first exposed to HIT (high intensity training) in 1986, full body, none stop work. I've done many variations throughout the years. CF has taken some of this and incorporated Olympics lifts. They've also evolved during the past 6 years that I have been doing it as well.
