*.* 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.

no need for popcorn; I don't think anyone readily admits to being one of those people...I'm sure the ones that do it are too oblivious to even know because they are idiots.

Anyways...I did lifts with him in reps of 5...several per day...we weren't super aggressive but I didn't do a lot of cardio then and when I went on vacation I had almost zero fat and, in all honesty, was pretty cut.

And I never pushed myself to the max...I always felt good and accomplished after a workout but never went gung ho. I just went every day.

That's where I'm trying to get today...but instead of lifting, I'm doing it primarily with cardio. I have a good metabolism and feel like with the cardio regimen alone 6 days a week I'll easily drop the 10-15 lbs.

All I'm trying to do is supplement...I'm not trying to get a professional workout, which is why (along with cost) I chose Planet "we have pizza parties on Mondays" Fitness.
Silock's is probably where it is at for you then. Just don't get all billy bad ass and load up the weight for more than you're good for.

I don't think there are any real jackasses here. I'd venture a guess that most people in this thread go to the gym to get better, not to be hardasses.

I am with Silock on this. Lighter weights does not mean better form especially on squats/deads. Form stays much tighter for almost everyone on a squat/dead set of 5 reps with mod-heavy weight than it does with 15+ reps and light weight. I have never understood why people equate light weight to mean good form when you fatigue your muscles to the extreme by doing so many reps.

Weight lifting should be about increasing reps per weight or increasing weight. If you aren't in the gym trying to add weight or reps at a certain weight, you might as well not even lift. People forget that to change your body you have to progress. Progression is not going into the gym and doing the same weight/reps on a given exercise every time.

Doing my 30 minute interval treadmill will accomplish that goal alone...I just wanted some ideas about some lifts to do to supplement that routine 3 or 4 days a week.

Run 6 days, lift after running 3 days a week.

Someone finally gave me 5 good lifts. That makes me happy.
Uh, I gave that to you last night!

You won't be able to give proper time to each lift given your time constraints if you do more than one per day. Nor should you do each lift every day. I gave it to you that way so that you can work one major muscle group each day and never the same muscle group two days in a row.

Football practice was my favorite workout. I might never be as cut as I was then.
