*.* 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.

Question for you fitness buffs/faux doctors:

I've been running a lot lately (every day for at least a mile, max: 4 miles). However, I've been having problems with pain on the lower inside of my calf muscle on both legs. I notice the pain as I'm running and eventually have to slow to a walk despite not being out of breath (indicating it's not a conditioning problem). Once I start walking the muscle tightens up significantly and causes me to limp.

It's not shin splints as I've had those in the past and this is nothing like that. Could it be a hydration problem? I do drink a lot of water and unsweetened tea (I don't drink soda or coffee) but it is hot in Texas and I sweat pretty profusely.

Could it be a nutrition issue? Is there a vitamin/nutrient I could be missing out on that's causing this? I'm trying to get in better shape but it's a big detriment to my running.

Could be dehydration. What are you considering a lot of water and tea?

I'm on my third cup of tea (12 oz. a piece) for the day right now. I'll have some water with lunch (probably around 12 oz.). Another cup of tea this afternoon. I'll probably have 3-4 glasses of ice water once I get home tonight. I also drink about 16 oz. of water after run/gym.

Wow, not enough fluid for that type of activity in a cool climate. You should probably at least double it. Mix in some gatorade or pedialyte as well.

I was wondering about Gatorade. Pretty much only after exercising right? I've heard it's high salt content can be bad for you if you're not active around the same time. Any truth to that?

I'll up my fluid intake as well.

gatorade is ok if it fits in your nutritional plan. I like powerade zero, but either way get more fluids in before running. Sounds like a cramp to me.

I've never really had cramping issues before but I didn't live in hot Texas before either.

The issue with gatorade is if you get the original it is very dense in calories that will be converted to fat stores easily.

Salt is not an issue to anyone unless you are already prone to HBP.

Keep in mind what you posted as your fluid intake is about what is recommended for the average non-active adult. being active in a hot climate I would at least double it. If you are not pissing clear you are not getting enough fluids.

Okay thanks. So a low calorie Gatorade like the powerade zero that was just recommended would probably be a good supplement?

I generally feel like I'm always drinking but I'm definitely not always pissing clear so ill up it and see how it goes.

I don't think it's hydration. Sounds more like compartment syndrome.

Does anyone have any experience with SNI Whey Protein?

I am curious as to the taste and have also heard rumors that their nutritional facts were misleading, but their company says that has been corrected and was an issue a few years ago, but isn't any longer.

By the way Day 1 was yesterday and checked in at 256.

Not as concerned with the weight as I am with how I feel and can get around with my kid. I did take measurements as well, but I will hold off on posting that until I get closer to where I want to be.

The soreness has already began though.

I don't think its cramps either.

If you have a rolling pin (for cooking) take it and roll our your calves for about 2 or 3 minutes prior to running and see if that helps.

Tight calves account for a ton of running pain and injury including plantar fasciitis and Achilles heal tendonitis.

Best thing I ever did was start rolling out my calves. I now have a runners stick (yes that says stick) to roll out my legs but I started with a rolling pin.
