comment Is 1 year a reasonable amount of time training for a challenging obstacle race?
I can't comment on these races specifically, but the best thing I did for protecting my lower back has been heavy deadlifts and somewhat heavy Romanian deadlifts. For shoulders it's been dips and pull-ups. I consider these to be essential exercises for health.

comment What is a good metric for defining an ideal weight?
@PaulProgrammer Strength work includes weight lifting, chin-ups, dips, and so on. For people that are out of shape, cardio can be strength work too. It sounds like about a third of your workload is strength-oriented, so keep in mind that the scale might not budge if you're losing fat and gaining muscle.

comment Is this a good weight lifting routine for a 13 year old?
@anaheim I can't help but notice that your Creighton Prep link doesn't support any of your arguments. It recommends strength training, including barbells, for far fewer reps than you claim to be safe. It also notes that there are no documented cases of weightlifting-caused growth plate damage. Its claim that athletes not lift over their head is a bald assertion with no supporting evidence. Freakyuser should note that lifting weights does not make trainees shorter.

@anaheim If you think lifting is dangerous for someone the OP's age, write an answer saying so. I think you're wrong, but an answer is better than a comment war.

comment Can't seem to do a proper bench press … any reasons as to why?
What weights, reps, workout schedule are we talking about here? What are your other upper-body lifts like? Which form are you trying to mimic? What's going wrong, specifically? And if you don't know, then can you provide a video? Because others we're just stabbing in the dark.
