I've decided to try out a bunch of different activities I can find and then eventually I'll pick one to stick to. I'm going to attempt to offer a detail review here since it might prove useful to others considering different options.
First a bit about me so you know where the information is coming from:
Train as a I guess intermediate powerlifter. I started at 145 lbs and now weigh 200 lbs. Best lifts are 230x2x6 on bench, 355x3x3 on squat, 475x1 on deadlift. Before I got into this I was a martial artist. My endurance from putting on weight and training in 1-5 rep range has really gone down.
What I'm looking for:
Stay in the 180-200 range just want to be a little lower bodyfat percentage and get my endurance back up to a respectable level. I am also interested in meeting new people or I would just do some circuit training, sled drags or swimming.
At this point the classes I've identified to try out:
-Power / Ashtanga Yoga
-Northern Style Preying Mantis
-Bachata Dance Class
-Spinning (if I can find a class that doesn't involve paying for a membership at some shit gym)
If anyone thinks up something else to try let me know and I'll see if there's anything near me. I'm avoiding Crossfit because of the high impact and high cost. There's a Kettlebell program but they run it almost like a seminar so you have to start at a certain date and it goes for 8 weeks, not sure if I'll give it a shot or not since I dont think you can just try a single class out.
