*.* 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.

Oh. And I pulled 5x365 on deads without any problem today.

Last time I got up to that weight, I ended up hurting my elbow/bicep because I was bending my arms when lifting. I'm ready to keep going up, now, though because it feels good.

I actually thought this gym was a shitty Crossfit gym, but their website actually looks decent, as they require a fundamentals workshop prior to doing any classes. The workshop covers:


That being said, that's a shit ton of stuff to try to cover in 3 sessions. I imagine most people would experience information overload.

The mantra, "you don't have to be good at it, just do it" couldn't be further from wrong with anything involving weight lifting.

If a few more gyms do that, it's going to drive down the price of the rest of the Crossfit community in the area (which is ridiculously priced).
My gym requires 10 half hour 1 on 1 training sessions with a coach before one can become a member. The coaching is quite good at my gym, but I have heard the same horror stories that you guys have heard.

My gym is $150/mo with a yr commitment (or $200/mo month to month). There is no tanning (seriously????) or childcare.

Right where I am at too. I could stand to lose 10lbs or so. But I have never been super cut-up anyway.

I was at 205 a month ago...

Felt like a chubby bitch when we went to Florida for Spring Break. I certainly didn't time my cut right for that trip to the beach.

Blocked out my face to decrease your chance of further hurting your wrist...if you know what I mean.

I find this offensive. I feel like someone is stroking a noose right now planning my death.

Eh, I don't know. I ran cross country in high school and I was huge compared to all the rest of those skinny bastards. I wasn't enormous, but I was a hell of a lot bigger than anybody else out there.
