*.* 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.

I'm a taste guy. I've tried the powder packets to help flavor water and still have yet to find one I really enjoy.

I like tea (flavored), orange juice and Gatorade.

I'm not trying to avoid all sugars, or other unhealthy things but just trying to find a viable replacement for my beloved mtn. Dew.

I've heard good things about the Mio drops.

Tried them. Not too bad. My main focus is making more healthy food/drink decisions and working out -- primarily the bike at the gym. My main concer is shedding pounds, rather than adding muscles, bulk, etc.

As far as beverages, other than pop, what should I avoid?!

With beverages, I'd just watch the calories (and sugars to a lesser extent). People don't realize that they can suck down 1/3-1/2 of their daily caloric needs in a coffee shake (assuming that you're trying to restrict calories, not bulk up). They can completely screw their diet without feeling like they've eaten anything.

So, essentially stick with water, some flavored water and plain tea?!

Man, it's going to be hard going w/o OJ.

And how ironic I'm drinking an AMP while posting in this thread.

I don't think there's anything wrong with drinking juice. Just realize that it has calories and don't suck it down all day. Water should definitely be your "all day" drink for staying hydrated.

I've heard juice, especially OJ should be drank in smaller quantities. Someone else told me OJ makes people more hungry.

Looks like water it's gonna have to be water and water only.

OJ is also very acidic and can eat a hole in your stomach. Friend of mine ended up in the ER with horrendous stomach pain and drinking ass loads of OJ and combining it with Alieve was the cause.

That reminds me. I used to drink a large glass of OJ with my hot sauce, jalapeno-covered pizza. Perfect combination.

Those were the days.

What's everyone's best advice to shed some easy pounds?!

I recently got a gym membership at Maximus in Topeka. I do the bike for 30 minutes and it kills calories like whoa. I'd like to shed 20-30 pounds before I go back to Wichita for my birthday in March. I've avoided pop and fried foods for the most part. I'm no cook by any stretch of the imagination, but I need to eat healthier -- for sure.

Weights + Cardio + Counting calories(stay at a reduced calorie intake) = Winning!

There some other proven stuff out there that may help a bit that's safe. Green Tea extract and 7-keto come to mind.

Man, I haven't lifted weights since high school at this point in my life I'm much more comfortable doing cardio. I feel the most comfortable on the bike while I get back into the swing of things.

Can I ask how old you are? I understand and I can't find the study at the moment, but combing weight training and cardio is much more efficient at weight loss then cardio alone.

There are a few that are phenomenal.

The best program I have ever been around!

I'm 27 in March. I'm not questioning the combination, but I do the bike because it makes me feel comfortable. I know that sounds lame and doesn't make sense to some. If I felt comfortable I would be on the elliptical rather than the bike. But, it's just awkward to me.

And as far as weights go I wouldn't even know what weight to begin at.
