*.* NEW- 2014 General Fitness Thread *.*

I guess we filled up the old one... http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=280149

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.

By the way, your back condition made me look like a genius on a Razorback football board (not a hard feat, but I digress...).

One of our backs had pics on instagram of him doing BSS when everyone else was posting pics of traditional squats. Someone said, "Not sure why J-Will is doing weighted lunges instead, but whatever..." I corrected them that he was doing BSS and likely had some back issue that prevented him from doing regular squats. A few days later, a reporter had asked the trainers about it and posted back that "JWill has some back issues and does BSS instead of traditional squats as a result." People were like... damn... Newchief knows his shit.

Bench press is the AIDS. Hit 275 for a single today but it always feels like a total grinder. My hips have been bothering me since I changed the angle of my feet to more open on sumo deads (45 degrees). I'd like to have good form and pull more weight but I don't want my years of dealing with hip pain to resurface. I injured my hips twice when I was Olympic lifting and standing up from a clean. It took a good few years to be completely pain free. I was pulling 405 with my old foot position but it was putting me a bit too far forward on deads as Aspengc8 pointed out from my video in old thread.

Any thoughts on this Aspengc8 or others?

Might give a chiropractor a go. You have to be careful for quacks, but I had some hip pain when I was running track and chiropractor lined me out. If you can find one that has sports medicine certification, they have been better in my experience.

I've been fine for the past two years so not wasting my money on a chiropractor. It's a dull ache that I get, nothing super severe. I've been able to manage it for the most part and continued to keep lifting heavy the past two years. Just not sure if nailing down my form to perfect is worth the hassle if I can pull relatively heavy without textbook form (not talking about pulling with bad form, just not optimal foot position for sumo).

My thoughts are that pain is not worth a number. As long as you're healthy and strong, just do what you can.

You might try deadlifts with the trap bar (assuming you aren't being judged on the lift).

Um no thanks. I like the traditional lift. And I don't have access to one anyway although I wish I did for deadlift variation training.

I dealt with some serious hip issues when I switched to sumo. I wouldn't call it pain that I had, but more of a deep down soreness that never seemed to go away. Mine happened to be a flexibility issue & some inflammation. I took some advice and really focused more on warming up & foam rolling. The foam rolling is what ultimately made the pain go away. Check out mobilitywod.com, dr kelly starlett or something like that. Foam roll the SHIT out of your hips, inside groin away, IT band area and do some of the hip stretches in his mobility videos. It also helped my low bar squat mobility as Im a fairly medium/narrow stance for a tall guy.

There is some merit to what everyone else is echoing about "if it hurts dont do it", however its worth working through it to figure out if it is indeed injury related OR just weak abductors/IT band issues like my scenario.

Also check out Ed Coan's deadlift on youtube. One of the greatest deadlifters off all time, and used a modified sumo pull stance(900+) and I think his stance is more practical, some people go way too wide. I ended up switching to his stance.

I have exactly the same issue. I can't even use pussy weight on a Smith without feeling in my back for days. I did find out that I can do dumbells to the side squats and be pain free. I just use hooks to hang on the the DB's. Front squats might be an idea though. It's the compression on my back that causes the issues.

The thing with clenbuterol, other than its illegal, is you have to really monitor your body temp every day. It's fairly easy to obtain (any "research chem" site carries it) but requires you to really pay attention to body signs as it REALLY ramps up your metabolism. Much prefer TRT level doses of test and some HIIT cardio for fat loss.
