*.* 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.

I saw this funny pic on Facebook the other day:



I've only ever taken pre-workout once in my life. My boss gave me some while I was leaving work, I got caught in traffic and my face started tingling out of nowhere. I was so freaked out I called my boss like "Is this shit normal!?!?!?"

Went to the gym and threw weights through the roof, but I'll never take that stuff again.

I sumo deadlifted 405 for an easy single. I haven't had a hip flare up in almost half a year. 5/3/1 just gives me the slow progression I need to get stronger without getting injured. Would love to dead near 450 by Christmas and stay injury free!

I need to get back on 531. I have a econo-prowler from eliteFTS and its been beautiful weather here in upstate NY. My strength & physique have taken a serious nose dive over the last year since my daughter was born, time to head north of vag.

I have the 531 ebook if anyone 'lost' their copy.

I did my first marathon in OKC Sunday. I finished in 3:32:31 which met my goal.

I was on track for a 3:22:30 or so at half, a 3:25:30 or so at the 20 mile mark and then burnt down at mile 22. I am looking forward to doing another one but it wont be before fall.

I was a great event and a very humbling experience. There were people pushing people in wheelchairs and firemen in full gear running the half marathon.

My wife said it took 30 minutes to get all of the runners across the start line. The full marathon, half marathon and 5K had over 25,000 runners combined.
Here is what the starting line looked like from where I started. It took 1 minute to get to the start so there was another 29 minutes worth of people behind me.

maybe some support would help? I have the black 12' ones and use them for benching and overhead pressing. Sometimes my wrists ache from straight bar curls and I'll throw them in for those too.

Week four of the Russian bench program and still cruising fairly easily. Six sets of five reps at 80% max. Six sets of six reps at 80% next week and then the weights escalate (while the reps decrease) in the final four weeks of the program.

I ran the Russian Squat routine when I was Oly lifting. I ran it once and never again. Worst 6 weeks of my life.....

Provides a good workload but the percentage of your max they have you use seems a bit steep at times. Good luck!

Dropped the 5-3-1 officially today. I like the design of it, but I just don't think it works for me. This is the second time I've done it and I've never been able to really bust through my PRs.

Started the Texas Method today. We'll see how that goes.

It may not be programming. It might just be that I play too much soccer.

How much are you playing? Are you eating back the calories your spending? That's a shit ton of running. Did you plateau, or were you just barely hitting prescribed reps?

When I lifted 24/7 in the miilitary it seemed easier than running. I'll be doing my first marathon next week after a bunion dislocated my big toe and gave me a pulled groin because of the gait, had I.T band syndrome that put me out of commision and ruined my marathon last year, had plantar facitis because of sorry nike shoes, ran for four months with a hip flexor strain and have been taking ice baths three times a week to keep me on track. Will see if I can qualify for boston by october and then I'm shooting for the san francisico tri.

I've been a pretty consistent lifter for the past few years, but my wife just completed 12 weeks of starting strength with me-- I'm pretty pumped. It took all of one visit to Google to prove that her fears of bulking up were bullshit, and she seems to enjoy it so much more than conventional treadmill running. We're now going into a "cutting phase"-- though any hardcore fitness person would laugh at our definition of it-- and will be doing Tabata and HIIT every-other workout, and kettlebells/body weight exercises in between. Will be cool to see how it works out for us. I'm about where I want to be, having dropped from 205 to 165 in the past two years; now it's about definition and tone.
