To begin I want to thank everyone was involved in creating this forum. It i scertainly a valauble resource for learning about general fitness. I also want to introduce myself.I am a former athlete who has become sedentary for quite a while and has become 30 pounds overweight. My goal is to get to increase my level of fitness so that I can safely participate in Aikido an d Parkour.
I have a question regarding Simplefit. I am using the workouts on it as a preparation for Starting Strength. Does anyone think it would be a good idea to modify the workouts on the website in order to make the training I do a better fit for my specific needs? And if do think this is appropriate what would you recommend I do to alter the workouts?
Thanks everyone in advance for any suggestions in advance.

If you worried about being physically unprepared for SS, start the program with just the bar and ramp up in 10 pound increments. Its far more specific to the program, because it is the program.

I would get with a coach that can teach how to properly execute the basic lifts required for starting strength. Exceeding in those lifts will not only make you stronger and more athletic, but also aid in accelerating your weight loss. You should also read up on the paleo diet and start implementing it as soon as possible. I have had numerous clients use this combo with great success.
