*.* 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.

Does anyone else sweat profusely while lifting? I've noticed at my gym, nobody else even looks like they're sweating at all. My shirt is usually stuck to my body drenched when I leave.

It's a central nervous system response and it's a good thing.

For me deadlifts, squats and cleans results in sweat pouring off of me. Less so in other lifts.

...and pay attention to the "PROTEIN QUALITY" section. A score of less than 100 means that you will need to combine that particular food with something else to get complete protein. Quinoa has a score of 106, meaning it is a complete protein by itself.

Anyone have any brand recommendations? I've looked at Brooks and Asics.
I've only purchased Asics lately. GT-2XXX works well for me.

Probably has something to do with body heat and humidity of all the other people making me sweat more.

The other people are probably not sweating because they do a set, then go talk and socialize for 5 minutes or more and aren't working that hard.

If you don't sweat, you aren't working out.

Usually 1 - 1.5 hours, 4 days a week.

I'm not kidding when I say I don't see anyone else sweating. I thought maybe it was a n00b thing. I also drink a gallon of water a day so it might be that.
