*.* 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.

Is that actual boxing training, or is it boxing-themed aerobics like Title Boxing?

It's just a crossfit gym. They call them "boxes" in the Crossfit community. I think it's because a crossfit gym is usually pretty simple and unadorned with very little in the way of fancy gym equipment. Many of them are in like warehouses and shit.

That's perfect for how I like to workout. Pushups, situp-style core building, and punches until you puke...

So do I. I get the impression you're not a fan.

I was doing "crossfit-style" workouts on my own at my normal gym. I took a lot of them from the crossfit.com site. I hurt my back pretty good doing that and had to take a lot of time off. I like the idea of always working with a coach and I love the intense workouts and variety. The initial deal I bought only comes with about a 2 month commitment. I think that's enough to see if I like it. If not, I'll go back to my old routines at my other gym.

What in the hell do you do with a kettle ball that size?

Swings, snatches, clean and press, overhead press, turkish get ups.

My next purchase with be a 32 kg. The "mistake" most people make in their kettlebell training is using very light weight. Most people, though, need to use light weight because they haven't been trained in the proper movements for real kettlebell training and will get hurt if they use heavy weight.

I haven't lifted since college and is amazing the growth you see in a short amount of time. I made a big effort to eat more chicken/fruit/veggies/Tuna and that has gave me enough energy to get through workouts.

I'm not NOT a fan of it. I dislike some aspects of it, like the superiority complex SOME CF'ers get. They certainly don't all have it. It would never work for me because there is a complete lack of specificity in training, which leads to being mediocre at all things instead of great at a couple of things. With the amount of soccer I play, it would never work. But for most people who don't have that kind of activity to train for, it probably works just fine. If I just worked out on my own with no real goals in mind, I imagine I'd enjoy it quite a bit.

So you're doing actual weight training with it? Interesting. I only use them to make things harder (adding weight, but not really weight lifting). Like I might get in a crunch position with a 12-15 pounder in my hands and touch the ground on either side of me back and forth or something. Imagining doing something like that with the kind of weight you're talking about makes me think I'd wind up in traction.

I do want to get something I can strap to my back to make pushups harder, though. The 45 pound weight I've been using from time to time is about to turn six, and he keeps getting heavier and heavier. I can't keep up.

Speaking of weight resistance, anyone have any experience with weighted vests? I've been wanting to get one for a while now but haven't heard much about them.

I'm sure most know this, but kettlebells are pretty old school despite their current techno p90x trendiness.
