I'm thinking about signing up for a gym. I do not know much about free weights but are most people willing enough to help you learn how to do specific motions and exercises or should I just take a weightlifting class at the university?

I go 90 seconds 6.6 and 30 seconds 10.5... its tough because my sprint is a lot faster than the latter but I get fukkin exhausted recuperating after the burst on 6.6.. gonna experiment with 3.8 and 12.0.

tips on progressing?

3:1 is pretty intense bro and even your rest period is fairly fast. I just go 1:2 (1 minute steady jogs with 30 second sprints; probably a piece of cake for you and I find it a lot easier to maintain. I do hope to get to 2:1 eventually but I like the way I'm progressing with 1:2 right now. If you're getting winded after your sprints, you should try to increase your rest periods between the sprints.

Look up some beginner workouts on bodybuilding.com. You can click on most of the exercises and they'll have a video showing how to do the exercise/lifts with proper technique step by step. There's a wealth of info on that website to get you started.

There are very few feelings that are as refreshing as waking up early, taking a bit of coffee, and then running some incline sprints. Maybe you'd feel more desire to run doing the same.

So I've been downloading some sessions off of yogadownload.com, they have free 20 minute audio/video demonstrations for all levels and you pay a few bucks of you want any longer sessions. I've only been doing it for the past three days, but it ain't too shabby.

thats how i started going to the gym... my friends were bragging me for years to start because i had strength, condition and good genetics... but was real skinny and not interested in working out at all... after years of trying to make me go they gave up on it but that night i made a bet with one of them that i will go the next day ( was semi-drunk ), they obviously didnt believe after all those years... the next day i was there... and since then i havent missed a day from my schedule
and im thankful for that semi-drunken friday... its been only 3 months and i have great results i bulked up 15 pounds ... all that while still eating junk food, drinking twice a week and few cigs a week

do the marathon! lol

Been doing snatch grip shrugs and behind the back shrugs the last few weeks and my traps are growing at a really nice rate. I highly recommend snatch grip shrugs.

People really underrate Yoga. It's a lot more challenging than most people realize AND it can be relaxing/make you feel better on off-days from your regular workouts at the same time.

when i was doing crossfit, we would have yoga classes on saturdays. it's funny to see these big swoll guys not able to maintain some of the most basic yoga poses. they kept asking me"how the hell are you doing that?"

Finally doing some ab workouts.. I've neglected them for years other than a brief stint in the p90x abs workout. Should have stuck with that workout.
