As long as you work out on the level you describe, there is no reason to worry about this one way or the other. Take a day off if you like, if that makes it easier for you to keep to the habit. Work out twice a day if you feel that is right for you. Like any other swimmer, I've done fourteen swimming workouts a week, and two swimming sessions and one ...

Of the two strokes you say you know, breaststroke is very difficult to learn to swim fast, and certainly hard to use as a cardiovascular exercise for any significantly long time. Assuming (by the fact that you only know half the strokes) that you are not a competitive swimmer, freestyle is best for you. To add to [Ivo Flipse]'s1 answer: in addition to ...

To get strong, lift heavy By constantly moving on you elevate your heart rate and fatigue takes over. Don't think of your muscles getting fatigue but instead think of your whole body. For example, deadlift and bench press use completely different muscle groups but you won't find anyone going to do a set of heavy deadlifts after a heavy bench set. What you ...

Good news! You can't become a heap of muscles! No-one "accidentally-Arnold" when working out. It takes YEARS AND YEARS of full dedication to get to a bodybuilder physique. Surprisingly everyone's belly pokes out a bit. That's because you have organs in there. When you tense a well built six pack you push them back and flatten out your chest. This look can ...

It's pretty important to note that while it may be enough now, your body won't always burn the same amount of calories. The human body is amazing at adapting to new situations, hence why weight training is so effective. Similarly, with jogging, as you keep repeating this process, your body will burn less and less calories over time as your energy pathways ...

The are mixed results with regard to whether tarmac, concrete, or asphalt is harmful. Tarmac/asphalt is harder than dirt. Concrete is harder than tarmac. Though the differences are not that much. People are probably more likely to get injured because of bad running form, or other factors. You will get more benefit from proper training, form, and shoes ...

Calories used during jogging varies greatly based on the incline and your body statistics. The "average male" jogging for 30 minutes burns about 250 calories. There are around 15 calories in a teaspoon of sugar. You have about 6 teaspoons maximum per day, totaling 90 calories. Am I doing enough in jogging so as to compensate my sugar consumption? ...

Unless you want to end up being as thin as a chopstick I would suggest that you don't drop below 80kg as this is pretty much around the ideal weight for someone standing 6 feet tall. To tone your stomach area I believe it's best to stick with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) from the training perspective and Intermittent Fasting for your diet. Read ...

When should I start working out? As soon as possible. At 26 you still have the ability to quickly adapt to new exercise and develop muscle relatively easily. Is it better if I continued my strategy until I'm 65 kg for example? (FYI: I weigh 56kg now). Your weight is just a number that tells you how much of a effect gravity has on you. I suspect what ...

With all due respect, you are wasting your time. This weight you are gaining is not the kind of weight you want to gain. As long as you do not train and you do not follow a strict muscle gaining diet all you earn is fat. It may not be visible (subcutaneous fat), but it is still there and this kind of fat is even more dangerous (visceral fat). Don't leave ...
