*.* 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.

Might be straining it with deads, swings, or snatches. I jack mine up occasionally with bad form. Usually hurts for 2-3 days.

Do you ever feel anything strain when you do deadlift? I jacked mine up about a month ago. Pulled something from my shoulder blade up through my neck.

Doing pullups before pulling seemed to help the problem, warming up my back.

You know they're good - seeing some good Lat. build up. My mid abs are good - biceps (getting better) -- I really need to work on my lower abs, as that used to be my strength of my core region.

My routine could absolutely stand to be more intense, though I'm consistently working out and eating super strictly. I'm nowhere near where I want to be - but I'm no embarrassment at the pool, either.

It's getting there - it's just work totally kicks my ass and my energy is usually gone. I do do pull ups at work pretty much all day - throughout the day.

Day 42:

Ended up eating three sweet potatoes last night, along with about half a cup of hominy. I don't know exactly where my calories ended up, but it was probably closer to 3500.

OTOH, the moderate refeed did allow me to lift really well today, and play an excellent soccer game, so I'm happy with that.

Yes. Happens to me a couple of times a year. Usually because I'm looking up too much when pulling.

That's great. I've been doing so many pullups lately that my right arm get's really achey. I've had to lay off. I'm trying to get a strict muscle up.

Good news bud. I wouldn't push the weight too hard just yet. It's a complex motion. I'd work to gain some muscle memory to hold onto your form.

That's the plan. Form, form, form!

I'm just playing with the bar for now. My current issue is that I'm trying to curl the bar up instead of keeping it close to my body and getting under it.
