Tire flipping, sled drags, box jumps... I like exercises that work the body the way it was intended to work. That's why I dig the crossfit philosophy so much.

I love that crossfit requires so little equipment. (With the exception of overpriced kettlebells) I could literally do most of it in my garage.

My idea when I train is functional strength, practical exercises. I want to be able to efficiently move my body weight from a variety of positions.

I don't need to stand one-footed on a BOSU ball while doing shoulder presses. I don't need to do wrist curls while sitting on a bench. If you flip a heavy-enough tire enough times you'll get better balance and bigger forearms.

Preferably a really small CJ.... JKs are a tad too heavy!

Tip of the day:
When deadlifting, don't try to pick up the weight. Instead, get in the proper position and think of driving your heels through the floor.

Exactly ^ and I find looking at one spot above me keeps my head up and my posture correct. Nothing worse then seeing guys hunch over when deadlifting

Tip of the Day:

When doing abs, I've noticed doing timed sets is more effective than repetition sets. Try to do circuits of 30 seconds per workout rather than say, 30 reps per workout

Attachment 198295

Sorry bout the shirtless part.....
Congrats on the transformation man.

I'm currently in school for my doctorate in PT with a minor in exercise physiology, and I have been an athlete and avid lifting for quite a few years. I also spend time reading, researching and testing all types of things from workouts and diets (real ones, not fads) and nutrition and supplementation. Some good information in here, and I have to tell myself not everyone is a powerlifter.

I actually started a similar thread this time last year, but it fell into darkness once everyone gave up their new years resolutions

Right now I am enjoying lifting and a new power focused program while dealing with school. Lifting and exercise and great stress relievers, and exercise is proven to increase basically anything good you can think of. Lower stress, improve cognitive function, increase overall health from fat loss to preventing nearly every disease, delaying mental disease onset such as Alzheimers, and all kinda of other things. So kudos to all you guys for being fit and active.

I'm in great shape. I workout hard, focus on diet, try to sleep well, and have learned to do's and don'ts. Fall of 2011 I had a bad sacroilliac joint injury (which was chronic) go out on me and basically completely destroyed the joint. If I wasn't as young as I am, I don't know if I would still be able to do more than walk and jog. I also fractured my spine. That said, in the nearly year and a half I have made a good yet rocky recovery, and come back about 90% of the way to where I was. The injury was from a developed joint injury I got while on medication when I was very young, and I had trouble with the joint for 5 years until It ended up just completely dying. Nothing I could ever really do, even with the help of PT and doctors.

Anyways, if anyone has any questions or want to know the facts about any workouts, diets, supplements or anything else, you can ask. I don't know near everything, and if I don't know I will tell you, I won't try to sound smart and give some half assed answer.

I'm 5' 9" and 180 right now. Maxes are still moving up every few weeks when I go for them. I'm at 445 DL, 400 squat, 285 bench as of last month when I went for them all. Missed a new bench max last week but probably shouldn't have went for it, since I wasn't feeling well. I have pulled 445 on deads for reps two weeks ago, and have been working more on form, depth, and strength then a big number on squats because of my knowledge of knee injuries and hamstring/ obvious back problems I know I have. I would rather increase my reps then keep pushing myself on squat. It's the one exercise you don't want to overextend yourself on too often.

What was your shoulder workout? I hurt my rotaters cuff a couple years ago and went a solid two years never working out my shoulders bc of the pain so mine aren't very developed.

Here's my workout for shoulders. Should note that I am in my strength phase so heavy weight and less reps. Might not be the best for you and your shoulder.

5x5 military press
5x5 behind head press
3x10 lat pull down behind head and squeeze with shoulders
3x12 shoulder flys
3x8 hammer strength press machine
4x12 DB shrugs

Long workout but my shoulders are my weakness so I really blast them. I have a neck injury so I have to be careful with trap exercises which is why you only see one exercise on the list.

Always open for questions or criticism

Pretty sweet. I used to do alot if behind the neck but they also have the highest injury rate of shoulder workouts. Also, behind neck presses work the rear deltoid, which is a rather small muscle group. For smaller muscles, you should focus more on more reps and controlled squeezes rather than pushing weight bc adding on weight to something so small won't necessarily make it bigger

Sweet thread! Nice to see it so busy. I haven't been on here for a while. I actually started lifting about 2 years ago. Still trying to give up the cigs though. I do 5 days a week, I usually lift for 4 days and cardio for 1. This month I am lifting 3 days a week and 2 days of cardio. I am going for the fitness aspect. Just want to build some good muscle and keep healthy and in shape. I always switch it up usually about every month with either 5 sets of 5, 3 sets of 12 or 3 sets of 8. I try to lift heavy enough to just start to struggle the last rep but no failure. I drink plenty of water and take all my needed vitamins. Always looking for new exercises. Just started getting into deadlifts and I am not so sure about those with my lower back. My biggest problem is my forearms. I get a shooting pain down along the bone from the wrist to the elbow when I do arm curls so I haven't done them for about 7 months. I tried light arm curls 2 weeks ago and the first 2 times were fine and then then started hurting again so like for the last 7 months I do any exercise I can to work my biceps without a direct arm curl workout. I have seen so much improvement in myself that missing a day other than my normal days off put me in a mood.

If you go all out on that workout and still feel like you need crunches and sprints, I salute you sir!
That was the first crossfit workout I ever tried. I thought it would be easy since I was in good shape already. I got 6 rounds and thought I was dying, lol. Now I can get 14. Next time I try it I'm going to move the DL weight up to 275.
P.S.. Nice video!

In 20 minutes? That's definitely a cardio workout lol, I wouldn't need the 400m dash either. Also if anyone has ever run a 400m sprint competitively here, you aren't doing much afterwards...trust me.

The crossfit you posted would definitely be a good endurance circuit to do. I prefer HIIT sprints myself, and keep my lifting more power/strength based. But everyone has different goals and reasons to train.
