*.* 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.

Back up over 2x body weight deadlift. BW 192, dead lifted 395 for two easy singles. Months of no hip pain. Finally feeling like I am taking multiple steps ahead with no steps back.

Going to start the Russian Bench program tomorrow. Never done it, so not sure what to expect. Looks like the first few weeks will be very easy.

PR'd my 5k time at the Garmin 5k this Saturday by over 2 minutes. My fastest time while working out had been around 25:45, and I finished on Saturday in 23:17. 7:31 per mile pace. Just last September I ran my first official 5k "race" in a hair over 30 minutes.

Nice. That's better than my best time so that must mean you're a beast!

The hard work and miles have paid off. I have pushed myself harder while running than I've ever pushed at anything in my whole life. There is a lot of mental toughness and discipline involved and the experience of starting slow (and feeling like I was going to die the first month or so) and being able to achieve goals through continued practice and effort has been one of the most satisfying things that I've ever done.

The best thing about running is you just need to keep doing it to get better.

I have been running for 2 years now and am doing my first full marathon Sunday in OKC. I am excited and nervous as hell.

My fitness goals this year are to run the marathon with an 8:00 mile avg, bench press 315 (I already did 300 which was my original goal and tied a PR) and get my 5K time under 20:00 (PR is 20:46).

I know that world class marathoners are doing crazy 5 minute miles, but hey, to me, an 8 minute mile average for 26.2 is some beast mode type s**t.

My goal for this year is a half in under 2 hours. A full is certainly doable, but anything more than 2 hours and my focus is going to start to wane.

My left wrist has been hurting for over a month. A couple of people have suggested that it's the way I hold the mar when I do bench, shoulder press, etc. My handa are bent back slightly. I've probably always done this so I wonder why it's a problem now. Also, I see other people doing this all the time. If this is my problem, how do I train myself to keep my hands straight up. It feels awkward.

Last year I did my first half after never planning to do one and ended up running 3 of them.

I got progressively quicker over the year so expectations changed. You could end up amazed at what you can do if you keep working at it.

For the record I think a half marathon is a great distance. not short but not ridiculously long.

I have no idea how these Ultra guys do it. I know a guy who ran a 100 mile race last summer and I think it took him close to 18 hours, that's nuts.

Did you fall on it or something? When I was playing high school ball I jammed my wrist taking a charge and it made it hurt to do quite a bit, including bench.

I went to a chiropractor (that was a sports trainer, not a quack). He worked on it and it was like new again. I hold the bar like you describe. Once I got put back together I could still hold the bar in the center of my hand instead of resting it on my thumb. If the injury happened outside of lifting, it may not be how you hold the bar. I'd at least talk to a decent chiropractor.

Oh man, you're right about achieving and having goals instantly change. It's funny what happens when you blow away your own expectations. Powerful stuff for sure.

In my experience, this is an oxymoron. I'm sure they exist, I just feel like I'm looking fr a needle in a haystack.

You're doing crossfit. Have you recently started doing cleans?

As the weight increases you're putting more and more pressure on that joint. You've probably got wicked tendonitis.

I follow the Mark Rippatoe program and he talks about your exact problem.

You want the bar to be balanced atop your forearms. No wrist action at all. It takes some time to train your brain and you'll probably want to drop your weight while you modify your approach.

The one I went to was a sports guy. You might look for one with those types of certifications or some orthopedics certifications.

I don't know. i'm just lucky I found one that wasn't a ****ing nutjob. If they start talking about lowering blood pressure or losing weight and shit because your back is out, GFTO.
