*.* 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.

43.1% body fat. I can't remember right off hand what my BMI was. Anyway, personal trainer showed me some very basic warm-up, workout, and cool down exercises and stretches. I did 10 seconds of balancing on my forearms and toes (with my body straight). She said it was good for a beginner, since she sometimes had to start people out on their knees and forearms. Been trying to do that for various amounts of time today, and that kicks my butt...lol. Also working on proper squats by using my body ball as a support. She said that the goal is to do proper squats without use of the ball. She's gone over a bunch of different stuff with me, from seeing how my balance and form is, down to what types of foods and equipment I have in my kitchen. She's helping me come up with a workout program that I will be able to do on my own including a few things with some 5 or 8 lb weights to start with.

I have a cold that's trying to get the best of me, or else I was going to go for a walk today. Instead, I decided to stay in and work on some of the forms and exercises she showed me. It's weird. My nose doesn't bother me nearly the whole time I'm exercising, but the minute I get done, I do nothing but blow my nose. I'm using it as motivation to keep on exercising...lol.

played an hour long game of hoops then headed over to the weight room for a leg/ab workout...i'm pretty toasted now.

when you guys mix in lifts IE legs/abs, chest/bi's, shoulders/tri's...whatever your workout conists of... do you do all chest lifts first then all biceps lifts or kind of mix them evenly throughout?

I'm late to the party but I'm in.

I'm trying to shed some pounds and get in better shape. I'm not trying to get into the shape I was in High School, but I need to do better. I don't much care about what the scale says, more about the mirror test and getting in better shape for the work I do.

I have arthritis in my knees and plantar faciitis along with terrible ass shin splints if I run too much. I have had the shin splints under control for 2 years now. It seems like every time I get to working out regularly I end up with an injury and go backwards way too far.

I think I've found a taping technique and some insoles to help my plantar faciitis and my knees haven't been giving me too much hell lately so I'm cautiously optimistic I can hit a stride.

Unfortunately I have a shit schedule in the spring-most of the summer-fall, so I think a gym membership is out of the running. I'm going to do some interval exercises that don't require weights and try to work in some running. I am also on a rec league basketball team.

Not really sure why I'm posting this, other than to get it out and give myself another motivator to stick with it. Wish me luck.

I guess I could ask what do you guys do to prevent injury? Also, what are some good plyometric exercises?

Compound lifting and yoga will be your best bet for injury prevention. I wouldn't throw plyos in to a new guy.

I go from largest muscle group to smallest (So, deads, squats, rows/bench, military press).

You're probably right about the plyos. I just like them and think they would really benefit me now in my fatass condition. I might try to get some dots set up or something light and relatively low impact.

Unfortunately I don't have access to any iron. Like I said, I have a shit schedule in about 8 months out of the year, so a gym membership doesn't do me a hell of a lot of good.

I'm comfortable enough in my manhood to do some Yoga. Anyone know of any good Yoga resources out there? There are a couple workouts on my phone that include Yoga. Anything else?
