*.* 2014 General Fitness Thread *.*

Welcome to 2014! Now get your ass in top physical condition!

No one else started it so here it is!

**From the 2013 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.

I used to us both the adductor & abductor machines as assistance on my squat and deadlift days when on 5/3/1. The abductor will help your squat out, adductor helped my sumo pulls. They get a bad rap because you often see fat chicks all over them. I see a lot of elite powerlifters are big on them, so take that for what its worth.

It could be an impingement. It could be a tear. It could be just inflammation. You wont know unless you get it checked out. I would stop any overhead work and double up on your rear delt & rotator work (if you do any at all).

Mine doesn't either, and im going as low as I can when i squat. i dont really squat that often anymore as i've found other movements give me better overall leg size. squats where just upping my ass size.

I have found that for me I get a much better pump on squats going ass to calves with lighter weight and higher reps. Also been much more pleasant on lower back not having the compression from a ton of weight.

My trainer has me doing the same thing. We do *some* heavy work, but squats are usually sets of 20 with something light like 225. We do a lot more leg press, hack squat & split squats, and we split up hams & quads on seperate days because its just not viable with the amount of volume we do. I don't want to be there for 3 hours.

Add me to the injury list.

A minor shoulder tweak at the end of my workout last night (reverse flyes). It's just a little sore when I move it certain ways. I can feel it on top, mid delt, where it connects. We'll see how it does when chest day rolls around on Monday. Luckily I'm starting the endurance cycle, which is low weight high rep. I think that my shoulders are a little wore out.

that sucks, Just rest. I think I'll be good after Saturday (1 week)
I've fast some over this resting period.
I'm really just tired, my life is kicking my ass - There's still some feeling of faint strain, but i really believe in 48 hrs or so - I'll be ready to cook.

I think that life is kicking a lot of asses right now. I've noticed that I'm feeling more run down than normal and I attribute it to winter. I require some time in the sun and this time of year always gets a little rough.

That's why I do single leg. Easier on the back with more weight capacity per leg.

+1 for keto! I'm down about 30 lbs since December. I just had to cut another hole in my belt this morning because I ran out of notches and my pants are falling down.

Add me to the list of people who don't give two shits about "the pump" on a leg day.
