*.* 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.

Does anyone use or have used Kettlebells before?

I'm looking for something I can do at home.

I use them a lot. If you can take a few seminars with an RKC instructor and get your form down, then there nothing wrong with doing them at home, though good bells are expensive. I don't recommend just jumping into them self taught due to the compound, dynamic nature of the movements posing a high risk of injury (assuming that you actually start throwing around some real weight. A lot of the BS kettlebell infomIercials have people using such light weight that its useless form of training).

These do not belong in the same sentence! Incredible stuff man.
It's all about context. I'm friends with guys with 900 pound deadlifts and 800 pound raw squats. So I never feel strong. Ever.

What do you recommend as a good multivitamin for men? Especially those men in the neighborhood of 40 yrs old.

Any multi that does not have added iron. The cheap ones are often just as good as the expensive ones.

I love doing legs and abs. It's the arms and shoulder stuff that kills me.

I hate leg day. Waaaay too much weight to push around and loading the bar is a workout on its own.

Still have to hit the legs hard though if you want to be big anywhere else.

Been focusing on the nutrition aspect much more lately. Start each morning with a shake consisting of oatmeal, pb, banana, milk. On non-workout days I add whey and creatine.

Why only on non-workout days?

You only take whey and creating on non-workout days? I'm confused.

That still makes no sense. It would make more sense to add the extra protein/calories/creatine on days when you are working out.
