*.* 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.

Use chalk. That way, the bar won't slip and tear up your hands. Is also safer than gloves.

You should invest in callouses.

You should be getting calluses, not blisters. Not sure if you should get either though with a 70lb curl.

Either way, get some chalk or liquid chalk.. ditch the gloves.

The last two sessions with dead-lifts I've made it all the way to the 2nd to the last rep then I lose my form (focus) and hurt my lower back. It happened last Thursday and just again tonight, I probably should have waited a couple more days I just hate missing workouts. Anyone have any tips or advice on how to keep this from happening? What should I do in the meantime as I'm likely out of commission for a week or so?
I see people talking about the Starting Strength program, is that this?:

http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wi...inner_Programs

I pretty much do that now, except i've been doing 5 sets of 8, at lower weights. I'm a pussy and can't lift much, although i've improved quite a bit since i've started.

do 10 to 12 reps a flat rate, but at lower weights it's all about perfecting the technique at medium to medium slow speed while your repping it out to 10-12. compound movements ( combine two exercises in one rep helps for variation too)

The bad thing about that is that, because it's only $10 a month, there are 1000 people there at any given time. I took a tour at about 1:00 at my local one and there were lines at damn near every machine. 1:00! I wouldn't even want to see how many people there are after 5:00 when people get off work.
