This would be your total energy expenditure for one day if you just lay around doing ...

I think that having at least calculated a few of your baseline TDEE values can be beneficial if you're overweight and have gotten your body "used" to under consuming calories based on something like say, willpower for example. Body weight x 24 is an absurd amount, for me that means my body would require roughly 4200 calories for maintenance. My actual ...

First, congratulations for recognizing that you need to lose weight. You've taken the first step. Second, don't plan to "hit back to gym soon and work hard on the cardio." That doesn't usually work. If you can go for a walk right now, go for a 30 mins walk. If not, perform 10 squats. If possible, do jumping jacks (modify it if you cannot lift yourself) ...

Don't focus on the specific ratios; they don't matter much. As long as the ratio is in favor of the high intensity exercises, you have little to worry about. Your goal is to keep increasing the duration of the high intensity per exercise. This strengthens your stamina, endurance, heart, and lungs. Of course, it also burns calories like crazy! The 20:10 ...

Both my wife and my daughter have exercise induced asthma, and what you are describing sounds like what they deal with. Go to a doctor to determine exactly what the problem you are experiencing truly is. If it does happen to be exercise induced asthma, the doctor will give you an inhaler so that you can use it when your chest begins to tighten up. That ...

Will aerobics make you taller? No, it won't. It'll strengthen your heart and lungs; it'll also tone your body and increase your energy. But it will not make you taller. That being said, some studies reveal that performing exercises that stretch your back and spine (such as hanging from a bar) can increase your height. Also (purely my observation with no ...

Aerobics won't make you taller, however at age 15/16 you are still growing. Girls are still growing until around 18 and boys i believe is early 20's. it's hard to say how much more you will grow and when, as everyone is different. A combination of eating a good diet and exercise will help you lose weight.
