A little while ago I was playing Dance Dance Revolution and finally managed to make it through the most intense song I'm currently capable of without dying. That is, running out of health meter in the game. But I also didn't die physically. I wear a heart monitor while playing and at the end it showed 203 BPM. My age at that moment (it's about a month ago) ...

The premise for this notion is based upon glycogen depletion. Replenishing glycogen allows the body to recover better and start working on muscle repair, however, You would need to work out for a few hours to consider that your glycogen might have been depleted. Assuming your friend is an athlete like you claim he probably trains for hours at a time and ...

What your friend is referring to is commonly called the "Golden hour" or the "Golden Window". It is also dependent on the type of exercise that you are doing. Many studies have shown that for endurance exercisers that have a need to replace glycogen in both muscles and body storage, that sooner is better, as the body is primed to deliver glycogen to the ...

To answer which one burns more calories, that's pretty straightforward math. Steady state cardio burns calories based upon intensity level x amount of calories per minute . In order to get that number you would need to know your heart rate during exercise and either have the hr monitor calculate the calories burnt totals for you or plug it in to a online ...

Treadmill of-course. Your body will get used to the park or any env. Where you considor walking whereas treadmill will help you in varition. And as you said you can put more time and walk some more distance without treadmill, it will not help as much.. Because the more efforts you make in least the time, the more you will lose weight as compared to the ...

I'm not saying I can back this up with strong direct evidence, but doing things in any order other than Primary heavy compound core lifts Accessory work ...feels insane and wrong to me. So yes, I feel there's a convention, and that is to put the important stuff first (after a general warm-up and specific warm-up, of course) and the accessory stuff after. ...

All in all, I'd say it doesn't matter too much, as long as you get them done. If you place them before your compound movements, they will provide a good warmup so that when you jump into the squat rack, you're properly warmed up, and there is less risk of injury. However if you went hard on the accessories, you might have to sacrifice some plates. That's ...

Your question is somewhat overly simplistic and assumes that if there were an evidenced base solution, it would be the same for everyone. That's not the case. I like to think of adaptation as a synergistic, complicated process that requires more than just weight training. Neglecting all other aspects (eg. Nutrition, recovery, genetics, etc.) that ...

Where to begin... Lets assess what is right: Squats are a great exercise to build muscle in the glutes (butt). To build muscle in a specific area, you need to use weights to build up the muscle in that area. What is wrong: Squats alone will get you a 'four foot butt'. The pictured physique is healthy for you and your spine. Taking a look at the ...

Any lie-down exercise should be done on a mat. If your group training session involves lying on your back on the ground without any mats, you should immediately STOP doing that, and seriously question the competence of whoever is arranging these sessions.

If there's a lot of difference which can be noticed easily then you should definitely go to a doctor and let it be examined. If the difference is minor then it is quite normal because no one ever has an aesthetic and proportionate physique naturally. Even professional bodybuilders struggle a lot for perfect aesthetics. Normally, difference between some of ...

I use this waistpack from Nike. It's literally just a small fanny pack. It's just big enough to fit my phone (Galaxy S6) comfortably but it can fit my wallet in it as well. I also keep my keys on a small carabiner, so I can clip them onto the waistband if I'm just walking around. I usually just have my headphones' wire behind me, down my back, and the ...

Excusme in advance for adding an answer instead of a comment. I can not add comments yet and I could not resist to give a different point of View. Why gym? Why weight lifting? Do you like such routine? There're thousand ways to lose weight and to carrie a healthy life. Is there any sport or physical activity that you like? Football? Basketball? Tennis? ...

A problem with hypothyroidism is that you cannot fully correct for it. While you can bring your thyroid hormone levels back to the normal range, a person with a normal functioning thyroid will have small fluctuations in the level of thyroid hormones due to changes in energy demands causing a feedback on the metabolism. E.g. exercising hard for a few days ...

Well you didn't talk about your diet, which is the largest contributing factor to your body fat. What you eat, and how much you eat, is the biggest component of your body fat far beyond whatever you do with exercise. Get your diet sorted out as a priority. Your time at the gym sounds like it could have been better spent. I'd recommend adhering to a proven ...

My tip is... see a doctor. And if you did and they didn't really find anything, consider a second opinion. Really, there are so many possible causes of this that just giving you some tips is unlikely to solve it. And because the underlying cause might be a serious issue, it would be irresponsible of me or anyone who isn't a health professional to give you ...
