*.* 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 just added these to my leg routine and I'm loving them. I've got my wife doing them, too, so that's pretty awesome.

I have recently changed my routine from strength training to a volume routine (less weight, more sets, more reps). Since making that change, I have noticed that my sets on the bench press end when my triceps fail (not the case when I was strength training).

What is the most likely cause:
1. form is bad; working triceps more than chest
2. form is good; chest fails first; able to do a few more reps using triceps; then triceps fail, which ends the set
3. form is good; triceps are weak; triceps fail before chest
4. some other explanation

Good question though. I'm interested in the answer. I do a volume routine and usually my triceps are what fail. I do dumbbell bench though.

I have never seen someones chest 'fail' on bench, unless they tear a pec. Usually the weakness is either in the tricep (second half to lockout) or off the chest (front delt). We need a video to really be able to diagnose. We need to see grip width (as Lew mentioned), how your elbows are tucking (or flaring) as well as overall bench setup. I think it would be cool if guys started throwing up some videos on PR's, etc. Tuck e-peens away and be able to help each other with form, setup, etc.
