There really isn't a convenient time to workout no matter who you are. It's a lot of work, you get sweaty, you need to change your clothes, and it usually involves going somewhere other than your home or work. I try to do strength training three days a week, usually around ~3pm. The gym is empty, I can actually get in and out much faster than the busier ...

If your goal is to make your legs strong, then squats are without a doubt the best exercise you can do to achieve that goal. Squats are a universal exercise that both men and women can do with equivalent results and success, so there is no reason to be worried about results depending on your gender. Now, any exercise is better than none, so it's good that ...

Being able to touch the toes depends mainly on two things: hamstring flexibility body proportions (relative length of legs, torso, and arms) It is not possible to change body proportions, so, to reach the toes, someone with longer legs and shorter torso/arms will need to have more flexibility in the hamstrings.

It's possible, but I wouldn't call it "likely" in the sense that "this is the most probably reason". The most likely reason is simply lack of flexibility.

After that, the general rule of thumb that I learned in college and has been borne out in experience, is that you lose 2 for 1 after that. So, if you are out three days past whatever your particular threshold is, it will take you 6 to ...

Step one is to fix your diet. You will have to say no to pizza, burgers, and chips until you hit your goal. That alone will help you start losing fat. The question is whether it's enough fat to hit our goal. The best way to illustrate what I mean is to use an example. Person A is 200 lbs at 20% body fat. That means 40 lbs of fat and 160 lbs lean mass. ...

Zoomed out a bit, I'd look at the other 23 hours a day and realize that your 14 minute/mile walk (while certainly better than nothing) isn't really going to have a huge dent on your daily caloric intake. Additionally, a sugar laced mound of carbohydrates doesn't really fit into a solid nutrition plan on a daily basis. That bun, because of the sugar and ...
