    This is one of my next goals: http://toughmudder.com/
    I would love to get a group of people together from TypeC to meet and compete together as a team on this.

    And I'm sure you'll get there! Are you using any supplements?

    If you want to get muscled up, weightlifting is the way to go.

    The trend lately is more towards total body fitness, working on the core and using muscles in groupings with multi-movements rather than isolating them with a single movement (like bicep curls). This uses more bodyweight moves than weightlifting.

    I'd break it down like:

    Weightlifting - muscle size, but with weak points and lack of strength in certain movements/planes of motion
    Bodyweight - leaner size, but with fewer weaknesses and better strength in more movements/planes of motion

    Both are essential.

    I have this phobia of getting fat coupled by this current disappointment of a realisation that it's now 7pm here and the bath I'm running in the hopes of having the funds for my June membership are futile because the office wouldn't be open take my payment anyway.

    Then body-weight based exercise is the way to go. This stuff is about strength to weight ratio and endurance.

    So do as many pull ups as you can in 30 seconds: GO!

    Intervals my friend. Intervals. My fitness went through the roof from doing these.

    Probably true, but it doesn't mean you can't still be really fit from trying.

    You're exactly right, and that's why I try.

    We didn't evolve to jog long distances. We would walk mostly, and sprint when we needed to (like after prey or away from predators).

    We didn't need to be able to lift hundreds and hundreds of pounds if we could move through and interact with our enviroments athletically.

    This is why I would say, if you're looking for the best workout, play an intense sport, do crossfit, or take up bodyweight training.
    This all depends completely on one's goals. It is not "best" for everyone's goals.
