*.* 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.

My lifting has been spot on lately and I'm eating more but not gaining weight. Had a big guy tell me I looked huge at the gym and wanted to know my weight. When I told him what I weighed, he said I looked 15-20lbs heavier. He weighed 255 and wasn't fat so that was quite a compliment.

I hope he saw that my wife was there today if you know what I mean.

so yes

What if you've completed your work out - yet you still reserved energy - or umm - aren't tired?

Ab time?

Rest time. Save it.

That's just me, though. I'm glad when I'm not tired after a workout because it means I'm probably not overtraining.

For instance, today was my highest weight day of the workout week. I'm not tired and feel like I could do the whole workout over again. I'm glad I'm so energized, though, because it usually means that I'll have good workouts next week.

However, if I'm beat after today's workout, it's probably time to take a week and recover.

I see - I find it astonishing that you take weeks off then regain the momentum and rituals.

I will have to go hard for a bit (to establish my routine)

Most advanced routines have a prescribed reset period or de-load week.

You just can't keep progressing linearly forever. Your body just gets tired.

i see - when is my target reset period, provided I just started back?

I know it varies, but can you give me a range, a range of approximately how many weeks prior to a week break?

I do 5/3/1. 3 hard weeks, then 1 deload week. Once you have been pounding the iron for years, you needs some schedule decreases in intensity usually more frequently than when you began lifting.

You have to know yourself. If a person loves to work out, they will be chompin at the bit to get back after it. I am sure Silock has well over 20,000 hours in the arena of fitness, needless to say he doesn't have to worry about soapy titty time distracting him.

You should probably take it easy once every 8 weeks or so.

That doesn't mean you have to do NOTHING, but either do half the weight of your normal workouts that week, or half the sets.

Don't think about it as an impediment to your progress. You won't lose any gains you've made in a week. Think of it like an oil change in your car. Preventative maintenance.
