Sorry, I misunderstood you. Yah, I'd like the cardio to be running. Seems more practical and I can enjoy the outdoors while doing it. I'm also looking into martial arts at the moment, and was considering using that as a crosstraining day instead of running on one of the days. I had originally put th...

Lol, sorry, I should have been more specific about the rehab, it's drug rehab, not for an injury. Anyways, I notice that a lot of these running programs seem to have days with a "recovery run". So, I figure that counts towards the recovery day. I'm not sure how cardio factors into recover for weight...

Put together a framework for fitness-would appreciate advic

Hey everyone, been using this site for a long time but never posted here. I put together a general fitness program for myself based off of this website, starting strength, random tidbits, and what seems to work for me. I'm doing a routine similar to this right now, but am a bit limited since I've be...

Ah yes, although I have a lot of experience lifting, I've mostly taught myself. So, I'm not actually comfortable doing cleans. I'd need someone to show me in person, and I've never seen anyone doing them at Lifetime, although I could always go to my school's gym, since it's fairly common there. Dead...

Bah, shouldn't have mentioned rugby. The other thing I don't get about 5x5 is I read on this site that 5 sets is definently more than optimal (think low volume training). Is it more for endurance? How many times is optimal to do lifts for a particular muscle per week? Will I ever get the answers I w...

Damn, post didn't go through because it logged me out... so, let me summarize. I am trying to lose some fat as well. So far, I have gained about 15 lbs of muscle and lost 10 lbs of fat. Here's what I'd really like fellas, if someone could link me to or provide an exercise routine designed for maxima...

Oh, should have been a bit more clear. Looking for maximal muscle gain, not for any particular sport (although now that I think of it, I may start rugby up in the fall). No specific strength, size, power or endurance goals, although size/strength are the most important to me. As far as nutrition, I'...

6 Weeks back in - looking for a good weekly schedule

Hi everyone, just registered, been a fan of the site since I first started lifted a few years back, but I got lazy, but am 6 weeks back in the game. This is the only site I've come across who's information about lifting I actually take seriously (due to citing its sources and actually having the rig...
