Though this is a bit off topic, I was interested so I did some research. There are a number of scholarly articles on the subject (actually, this is a just a small subset -- look for yourself). Let me summarize some for you: Red meat consumption and mortality: results from 2 prospective cohort studies: (source) Red meat consumption is associated with ...

My search results cannot produce any scientific studies of the kind you seek. However, the best explanations for the link between red meat and cancer (http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/Red-meat-and-colon-cancer.shtml), suggest that the link is not body fat. Eating lean portions would not make much difference. Fibre seems to moderate the cancerous ...

Increase in height is not an issue if you really like your body and accept it. Although in some cases like sports/ work(armed forces) requires you to have a min height which is different based on their rules and regulations to which you cannot avoid it. Normally the height of the body grows during the period of 13-19 years of age approx.(Depending on the ...

The body "selects" the substrate for fuel on the amount of time that it has to provide energy to sustain the exercise, and the amount of oxygen available to use in the conversion process. At lower intensities, fat (both stored and circulating ffa {free fatty acids}) is the preferred source, with carbohydrates in minimal proportions. As you get higher in ...

How long have you been performing those exercises? Are they intense for you? The reason I asked is if you want to add new routines to the mix or want something different. First, YES! Do include a running program also. None of your current exercises include pure cardio exercises. You can also replace running with some plyometric exercises. Skipping, knee ...

First, I will give you an example of a good program: http://www.startbodyweight.com/p/start-bodyweight-basic-routine.html What makes this program better than yours? Progression. Your program does not specify how you will progress on the exercises. The routine I provided tells you to slowly add reps until you can do 3x8, then move to the next exercise ...

While it is not entirely true as it's not scientifically proven that you can not gain muscle and loose fat at the same time. It could be possible through proper planning and very intense diet regime. I personally managed to stay at 160 lbs while lowering my BF percentage to 8%. You just need proper planning and determination.

No. When you're in a calorie deficit, your body must burn fuel to make up for that deficit. That fuel can be muscle or fat. When you lift weights, you are signalling your body not to burn muscle, and to burn fat instead. Your body will not create new muscle in a deficit. That would simply be counterproductive, using up more calories and creating an even ...

If it sounds to you like you have a snapping hip you can read more here and see this question for more answers. Tightness and repetitive motions can cause the tendons or hip to snap quite loudly. If you have pain or weakness be sure to have it checked out by your doctor and/or physical therapist. Since you say that you don't have any pain with the ...

If there is no pain or obvious weirdness surrounding the phenomenon other than a popping noise, you should be in the clear. I have this with my knees and my doctor said it's no problem unless there's pain. Any sort of stress or pressure on a joint can cause popping, but this isn't necessarily an indicator of damage on its own. Have some links: ...

@Berin has given you a very good answer so I will just add that this question/answer about getting back in shape will give you some additional information. As far as your knee pain, you may find that a pair of Nordic Walking Poles can help to lessen the impact on your knees. They can also increase your calorie burn by about 20% over regular walking. ...

As a 42 year old man myself, I can relate. One thing about getting older is that you have to manage your recovery better, and be more strict on how you address your exercise and nutrition regimen. You need to start by figuring out what the first thing you want to address is: Start with what your desire is--lose fat, get "fit" Decide how to measure your ...

The best natural supplement I can recommend is OMG-3 (3 gr/day). This would help you out to reduce the inflammation, and the sore of your body. As a former athlete, you would know ice therapy is your best friend. Do not forget to put some ice at your knees after exercise. Finally, try to do mobility sessions. Focus on core balance and flexibility. Even ...

Since upright rows stress the traps and the shoulders, I would switch to using barbell or dumbbell shrugs. Your shoulders won't get as much work, but, if done correctly, the traps should benefit. Additionally, either exercise should reduce any strain on your wrists.

The phrase is a marketing slogan. That said, it is based on the principal that if you do the same thing time and time again, your gains will plateau at some point. By varying what you are doing and targeting the muscles in different ways, it will take your body longer to "get used" to a particular routine/exercise which results in plateauing.

Those were parodies of real exercises. If those exercises were done with perfect form (and seriousness), they are very effective. They are examples of body weight exercises and they are very good for the body.

Speaking from personal experience Do sit ups Crunches Sofa crunches Once in the morning and night and in two weeks u should see the difference and not only will u be reducing ur belly but will also increase the strength of ur abdominal muscles for abs

Let's look at the positives: Very high rep work will get you strong, and burn fat. High frequency training (5 days in a row) also accelerate burning fat. Chin ups build great lats, and are a great compound exercise 200 push ups will build solid triceps, chest, and shoulders (front delts) Next, the negatives: Only 10 minutes of cycling for the lower ...

If you are seeking to reduce your "belly" then the workout you have been given will not be enough to achieve your objective. It really depends on what you want to achieve. Cardio alone will help you achieve your objective of losing the "belly". But the most effective way to gain strength and muscle whilst losing the fat is to do circuit training. You ...

Doing abs exercises will not 'reduce' your belly. Targeted exercises don't magically burn more fat in a particular body part. However, it will build abdominal muscles. If you're looking to lose weight in your stomach then you simply need to find a way to burn more calories than you take in so you lose weight in general. Typically cardio exercises are ...

The bigger the muscles you are using - and the more of them you are using - the quicker you can get your heart rate up. That generally means using your leg muscles, and using them to move your body weight up and down. For me, something like deep squat jumps or running stairs are the ticket.

I agree with that, maybe you should run more often, and around 20 or 30 minutes... I personnally love jumping rope because not everybody can run everywhere, and in the city it's not always good with car pollution & co... Something else : rather than "old up at the up phase" on some series, clap in your hands at the up "push-up position" seems to me a ...

Your routine could probably use more cardio exercise. 5-7 km once or twice a week-while better than nothing-isn't much and does very little to improve or maintain your fitness. A decent running routine for maintaining fitness might be to work on doing 30 minutes a day 3-4 times a week. The rest of your routine looks better.
