*.* 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.

Assisted pull up machine. It counterbalances your body weight, so the less weight you use on the machine, the more of your body weight you're pulling up.

It works amazingly well.

Hell, go to the track and do some sprints. Pushing hard releases more endorphins than a long slow run.

Time yourself and then look to beat it the next go around. Run angry. It works.

Personal training session went well, but I left still feeling...shitty. I haven't had a day like this in a really long time.

I worked arms and back today. Would it bee too much if I went back to the gym and ran it out on the treadmill? I don't want to overdo it, but I just can't shale this damn feeling.

Eh, tomorrow is another day. I'll just go put some ice cream sandwich flavored protein powder in the freezer and eat away my blues...lol.

Try doin a few jumpin jacks. Its a good tension reliever. Better than sex.

Tried running after nine days of low impact cardio. I could still feel my shin splints so I stopped pretty quick. It didn't hurt but I could feel them so I stopped before it got worse. It sucks. I did up my bench by 20 lbs for four reps.

That doesn't sound like something we have at my gym. I have been using the rings leaning back with my heels on the floor and pulling myself up. I realize that's more of a row motion than a lift though.

Oh, and I feel better. Little time on the treadmill helped. I like the treadmill. It's a little more controlled. I like knowing how fast I'm going and calculating how much further that means I will go in the next __ minutes. I'm just weird like that.

Seriously, you don't need the mirror to do a ****ing curl so get the **** out of the way for others needing the benches or the weights.
**** that noise. I use the mirrors for errrthing. I don't think you get how pretty I think I am.

If you still want to run you can tape your shins. I have to do it now. Getting old sucks.

Pro tip: Most good pullups are more of a row than a straight up and down lift.

I will keep that in mind. Thanks.

In the mean time, I know that having less of me to lift will help, so let the fat burning continue!
