*.* 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, I can also tell you that you get treated much differently (by both men and women) when you are bigger and more muscular than you do when you are skinny. Treated much better, in fact.

So I don't either. Just consistency working out and challenging to gain strength...but mostly just consistency in diet/lifting. Plus those few years of Olympic lifting gave me some really dense muscles. Easily the most challenging lifting I have ever done physically and mentally. Also, very little cardio!
I don't know. I think even if I stopped playing soccer and just lifted, I couldn't get that big without gear.

Not saying you dont want extra muscle at 40. What I found was diet becomes much tougher as metabolism slows down, so its harder and harder to keep weight off, at least in my case. My weight kept climbing even though I was dieting etc.. until I started throwing in fairly moderate cardio on top of diet. Anytime I slacked the weight would come back fairly quick.

I wasn't throwing stones just making an observation. Probably not the best way to say what I was thinking.

When I was younger I was doing everything I could to put on size and weight. Then I started doing all I could to drop weight at about 39.

In the end I ended up dropping about 15lbs and I'm happier being smaller and more tone.

Man, just some advice here. That weight is pretty tough to carry around, both on joints and metabolically, when you get to be in your 40's. I had massive arms and chest like that when I was in my mid 20's, and now, at 46, it has taken tons of shrinkage and re toning to get a good look that isn't flabby.

Scenario/Question:

I just turned 35...started working on getting in shape a little a year ago. Since then, I'm down 25 pounds or so (guessing that I've added about 5 pounds of muscle and dropped 30 of fat). As of this morning, I'm about 3 pounds heavier than when I graduated high school.

I've still got a tiny bit of flab on my obliques that I'd like to get rid of, and I think that dropping those last few pounds to get back to my age 18 weight will pretty much take care of it.

My plan has been to focus on weight loss while mixing in some strength training to build muscle until I get to my target weight and then shifting to strength training (pushups, kettle balls, possibly some limited weight lifting, etc.). The thought process being that it's going to be easier to add muscle than to drop weight. (I know that adding muscle helps burn fat, but I've been focusing mostly on cardio).

I would rather be lean with less muscle (silock) than have huge muscles with some extra cushion through my core (lewdog)...just personal preference. Should I keep doing what I've been doing until I reach my target weight, or am I never going to lose the little love handles until I focus more on building muscle?

Given my current track, I figure that I should be able to lose the last few pounds by the end of summer. Winter weather is going to make it difficult for me to do cardio, so I'm kind of trying to get in as much as possible while the weather allows it and strength train in the winter.

Am I totally off base here? Am I going to have a harder time than I think adding muscle? Is it actually easier to drop excess weight than to add five more pounds of muscle?

I'm thinking that I would like to get to 155 pounds before working to add 5 pounds of muscle to get back to 160. I weighed 158.5 this morning (that number just sounds incredibly tiny...wow...it's amazing how little we actually weigh without all the excess fat that we just get accustomed to carrying around).

This thread seems to be dominated by the iron pumpers (I don't mean that as a pejorative at all), so I think I know what the answers will be, but I'm still interested in getting some different perspectives.
