I don't have any GPP equipment though (tires, sleds, sandbags, sledgehammers). So, how should I go about doing it? And if I did have equipment, I've never organized a GPP routine before.
Is there a place I can buy GPP equipment? What should I do?

There is no such thing as GPP equipment. There is only stuff that you happen to use to do GPP.
do you see anything heavy nearby? Pick it up and carry it around.
Go to home depot and buy a 20 pound bag of sand. Put that bag into a duffle bag and have lots of GPP fun.
Home Depot / Lowes will be the place to go for all your GPP needs.

You don't need anything to improve your general physical preparedness.
I think you need to read up on what that means.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Join a league sport, like soccer, flag football, softball, etc. Then use that as a guage to your GPP. Plus the extra physical activity will help you with the process. It will make you train for a purpose.
Oh. Well I want to use heavy things and carry them around like the strong men do. I don't have any heavy stuff that I could use though.
This is the best advice regarding GPP. Not enough lifters play sports and not enough, er, sports players lift weights.Originally Posted by djreef
I don't know if there are any sports that I could join at the moment. I used to do sprinting, but is that enough to increase my GPP? I read Anthony's Journal and basically I want to do the stuff he does.
Don't you have any soccer leagues or flag football leagues near you? Or lacrosse? Or fall softball? Or basketball at the Y? Maybe a tennis league, or raquetball at the local club?Originally Posted by fixationdarknes

Not that I know of.
Push your car around a parking lot. pick up your dad/brother/friend and carry him around. Be creative. Stop thinking and lift!

I don't know if I'm strong enough to push a car. And if I was, doesn't that ruin the car at all?
And btw, at the moment I'm lifting weights on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Do you guys think I should do GPP work on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday?
Curious - What's the point of this gpp work?
Basically, to develop strength and speed in a cardiovascular way.
lol...alright man thanks. I think after being stubborn enough, I now know that pretty much anything will do for GPP? What do you mean by crossfit though?

If you need inspiration for cross training and fitness, here it is, from the Camp Pendleton Mud Run: http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/...hb-mudrun.html
join american football.
i weightlift monday, thursday and saturday - and play football wednesday and sunday. it works great for me. i went from 231lbs to 205lbs.
Look into kettlebell routines. Wait, I may have something for you...
I recently did the car pushing thing for a couple of girls broke down on one of the farm roads leading up to our office. I can tell you, without question, that is one of the most intense workouts I've ever had. It took 10 minutes for my pulse rate to drop back to normal, and jacked me up for a couple of days. I definitely plan on working that into my routine after I get through with the softball tournament this weekend.
