*.* 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 spent most of the year fighting nagging injuries. I was still able to work through most of it and stay in good shape. My back still gives me fits, but I hope to really hit it hard in 2013.

I just maintained with minimal effort this year. I didn't make any exciting strides, but I didn't go backward either.

Nope. Broken ribs, whooping cough and the flu kept me down. I haven't lifted in nearly 3 weeks.

I did, but my goal was the same as NewChief's in that I had no real desire to lose much weight. So it's not a huge thing to write home about, but I feel good about the year. I started out at 157 pounds and weigh 151 now, my activity goals were met, and I like my body more than I ever have. So that's neat.

Also gyuuuuuuuuuuh it's so weird to remember I weigh like 110 pounds less than I used to. So hard to believe that. I still have trouble trying to figure out how I was 20 pounds heavier at the start of 2011.

New to this thread, but I'll weigh in so to speak. I started year at 232 and wanted to get below 200. I did it, although I've crept back up 5 or so pounds as we move through the holiday season and work gets more and more hectic. Happy with myself, but I need to get back on the workout/clean diet wagon before I lose that as my default mindset.

ok I am no fitness guru

but due to some personal choices I am no longer going to be drinking for at least the next three months

I am, however, planning on going to the gym 6 days a week, if not 7...but I may take one day off for rest.

Primarily, I'm going to do cardio. I am going to do the same cardio every day and that is:

I warm up for 5 minutes with a jog. And then I do 6 intervals of 2 minutes running fast, 1 minute walking. Then I cool down for 5 more minutes. In a week or so, I'll gradually increase speed and probably get up to 8-10 intervals. Right now, it's about a 3 mile workout.

What I want from you, CP, is to help me with my weight lifting regimine. I do not want to do tough lifts, I don't really want to do squats and I am a very casual lifter.

I want 3-5 lifts per workout that focus on different areas every day. One day I'll do arms, one day I'll do legs, one day I'll do a bit of everything, and one day I'll do abs/back etc...

I spend 30 minutes on cardio and would like to spend 20-25 minutes lifting. Right now I've been doing flies, low weight curls (10X10X10) 3 sets (which is 30 reps per set, 40 lb. bar, 10 full curls, 10 from down to middle, 10 from up to middle if that makes sense), as well as various machines and bench press.

I'm 6'3" 200 lbs and am focusing on getting down to a more fit 190 lbs with a little more tone. I think the cardio is what I really need and it will be my primary focus over the next three months but would really like someone more knowledgeable in the weight lifting area to give me some beginner lifts that I can focus on that won't make me hate weight lifting more than I already do.

I've always been just a bench, incline, flies, curls, legs kind of lifter...nothing fancy and I want to keep it that way with an occasional ab workout filtered in.

Thanks for any help. If someone really wants to go above and beyond I wouldn't mind a Monday-Friday checklist with 3-5 lifts.

But if that's too much to ask I totally understand.

I'm also cutting out pop from my diet other than perhaps 2-3 diet pepsi's per week.

I'm sticking to predominately water. I've never been a big eater but I do enjoy going to a fast food mexican restaurant after my workouts so I doubt I'll change that, but I am eating healthier lunches but diet really isn't a big concern for me.

I have a good metabolism so if I'm working out and doing cardio every day I'm naturally going to drop the 10-15 lbs that I've packed on due to years of excessive drinking.

If you want to do it that way, you may as well go use the nautilus machines with the other girls.

I'm looking for a cardio workout with light lifting...that's it. But if you guys have other suggestions let me know...I'm not trying to pick any fights. Just looking for advice. Give me a 20 minute workout to supplement my 30 minute cardio.

I don't want to argue either, so I'll just say if you're not building muscle, you're wasting time. Light lifting is for injured people and women who are afraid they'll bulk up.

I'm not really light lifting. I will lift as much as I can lift...it's not like I'm on the bench lifting 25's on each side.

I'm saying, I only like to do 3-5 lifts to supplement my cardio workout. If you're saying that's worthless after a pretty intense (at least for me) 30 minute cardio workout than fine.

I don't like to spend more than 45-60 minutes per day at the gym...and cardio is more important to me than lifting.
