*.* 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.

Sorry for the confusion. So yeah. We're back to regarding my initial post. Especially the parts about keeping yourself in one piece.
Hills are even easier on your joints. Kicks your ass a lot more too.

I did sprint 8 on the treadmill, and I've done it outside. I had good luck with both, but I prefer outside. On a treadmill I'd usually crank it to 15 the entire 30 seconds. On pavement I probably started out at 17 then was at 10 be the end of the thirty second. I will say that you look like madman doing it on the treadmill.

My spring workout is at the local HS. They have a nice track.

I do between 2 and 3 miles (the hotter it is the closer I am to 2 miles). I sprint the straights and walk the turns.

8-12 100 meter sprints.

I have the Merrell Road Glove 1 and 2 (I prefer the first version but 2 is more stylish).

http://www.merrell.com/US/en-US/Prod...2?dimensions=0

The barefoot running shoes have made a huge difference on my knees and ankles. I've read that they also help with shin splints.

I wear the trail gloves, and I really like them.

I also have the trail version (first gen) but I don't actually run in them. They're more for farting around.

I don't do a ton of running, so yeah. I use them for the gym, when I'm not barefoot there, as well as hiking.

I never considered them for hiking. That's the one time I usually want a little cushion.

Well, if I'm going bushwacking and/or carrying a load, I wear my Merrell Wilderness boots (which I've had since 1996, btw, and put probably 2,000 miles on. Awesome boots). I use the trail gloves when I'm "walking" with my boys on a trail that isn't going to be too extreme.

I use mine for hiking every time I do it. I love them.

My training parter and I picked up a set of EliteFTS resistance bands to add to our training. Holy shit do these destroy you. We used the 'medium' band on incline bench and worked up to 275 for a couple triples. I can't believe how hard it is to lock out with these. Farted around with using them on some hammer strength press machines and have never had to work this hard with such a small amount of weight. Best $70 I have spent on training gear in a while.

I went to crossfit today and halfway mastered rope climbs. We had a little competition style workout today. We split into two person teams and each person had to climb a rope, do burpees, and run 100 meters - 10 rounds. My partner and I both just learned how to do rope climbs today and we were still competitive. I know a lot of you guys hate crossfit, but it was a blast. I had so much fun I almost went back and did it again with the afternoon group.

I don't Crossfit, but this points to one of the things I love about fictional fitness. It reminds me of one day being at a church picnic and a kid's kite went a couple of branches up in a tree. I walked over and did a muscle up into the first branch, stood on it, untangled the kite, and jumped to the ground. When i returned to the adults, another Middle Aged parent said, "how the hell did you do that?" I didn't really think much of it, but I realized that among that group of people few could have done it.
