Don't know how many of you have tried crossfit, but I have been doing a vamped up version called SOFwods (special operational forces workout of the day) which is, ironically, based in Charlotte. I love it. I thought I was in shape before doing it, I've been lifting since high school and the good ole army got me into a leaner shape. But not only have I been able to maintain a 280- 300 PT score ( last one, 101 push-ups, 99 sit-ups, 14:10 2 mile my worst PT test to date) I have been able to add almost 4-10 pounds of muscle to my smaller frame. All my lifts have progressed significantly . For instance, my deadlift went from 320 to 375 in 2 months of hard training. I haven't tested my back squat but I can tell you it's some where close to 400ish. Try it!!!! Surrounded by motivated dudes and hot chicks can only help.

I'm going to do a creatine cycle my 2nd month and probably get a good black powder supplement for preworkout. any suggestions?

From about late October until first of December, I was on creatine and taking a pre... I've tried several and honestly most of them your body gets used to pretty quickly... The best one I've tried is probably 1.M.R.

Weirdly, for about two weeks AFTER I got off creatine, I was stronger than when I was on it...

Jumping rope will really work on your knees and your feet as you age. As a word of well intentioned advice to you younger guys - save yourself some grief later in life and try to go for not jarring type of aerobics - I do mine these days via my concept 2 rower - I used to jump rope a lot- first thing to go were my feet and then my knees - Im a lot better now after being off the rope for several years, but I know the damage is still there.

If youre persistant it, rowing will give you a lean muscular build coupled with a weight program - great lat and upper body development and stamina. Im pushing 55 and have a better body than the majority of guys half my age.

Yeah, I'm only going to do a one month creatine cycle and be done with it, just to help me get back into the swing of things.

I have a buddy that swears by NO2 Red and one of the black powders.

I do avoid jarring excercises for that reason. My prefered aerobic is rollerblading. But I need something for my off days that I can do in a 10x10 space.

I hear you REALLY like bananas... :P

I've tried that greek yogurt and it's not for me.

I've done really well over the holidays working out... only missed yesterday and even then we went for a nice walk with the dogs. Haven't over-eaten either.
