*.* 2013 General Fitness Thread *.*

Welcome to 2013! Now get your ass in top physical condition!

**From the 2012 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.

It's like almost twice as hard for me to finish. I still finish, but at the end...I wonder why I'm so ****ing killed on one treadmill and not on the other?

Yeah, I love it for 2 reasons. When I was recovering from my rotator cuff tear this allowed me to bench pain free and I also use it for 2 additional sets after my normal 3 on bench. It takes a few workouts to get used to, but a few power lifters in my gym turned me on to it and I've turned a few guys in there on to it as well. Everyone seems to love it, especially guys with existing shoulder injuries that like the support it provides.

I will probably give it a shot and I would definitely use it after some regular sets. I really expected it to be more expensive, so I can definitely swing the purchase. Which version would you recommend?

I have the original and prefer it. I tried the maddog, but it's almost too much assistance. It's basically double ply of the original. It's hard just getting your hands a part for the grip with the maddog.

How does this device compare to a bench shirt?

Yeah, some could have resistance or slippage I'd guess. Is one a worn out POS?

Similar concept, but a hell of a lot easier to get on and off. It doesn't really provide resistance going down like shirt does it just holds your form a little better and gives you a little boost at the bottom of the rep. I can do 325 for 3-4 reps raw with the slingshot I can do 8-10,

Trying to add deadlifts into my routine this year. Starting out super-light but should know if my back can take it in a month or two.

I'm doing the same thing. I hurt my back doing them over a year ago and it's still not right. I'm trying to fix my back by learning to do that motion with proper form. I had a 30 minute session with a crossfit trainer dedicated to proper deadlift technique & it has helped me a lot. Good luck!

I also just ordered Magnificent Mobility after reading some impressive reviews. Hopefully that helps, too.

No real problems so far- just sore glutes, lol. Hope you are having similar success.

Anyone ever tried the Russian bench program? What were the results?

Also, what routine should one go to after completing the Russian bench program? I have heard it is a bit rough on the joints.

I've figured out that I have an anterior pelvic tilt from sitting at a desk all day. I've started trying to isolate and activate glutes and hammies and stretch hip flexors and quads.

Rolling out my quads is excruciating but my back feels great every time I get done. I hope I'm on to something here.
