You are asking a question specific to the way that exercise would make you feel. Everyone is different, this includes their body's ability to respond to different stimuli and their emotional response to changes made to routines. Other people's experience may have similar, or no similarity, to what you will feel. Your best bet will be to try the different ...

Generally it's much easier to, for example, skip eating a banana than to go out jogging for fifteen minutes. Personally I feel it's even more so when your caloric deficiency is more than 500 kcal per day. This is all just anecdotal, so I'd try it out myself if I were you. But for myself I'd just do some heavy lifting to maintain muscle and then cut the bulk ...

While it's widely known that lifting stunts growth, it seems likely it's actually a myth. The main thing is that you don't go on some crazy diet, because then your body won't be getting energy and nutrition to grow. http://www.livestrong.com/article/430166-can-lifting-weights-when-young-stunt-your-growth/#page=1 According to Dr. Avery Faigenbaum of the ...

Losing weight does have a correlation with working out/lifting. The most important thing is your diet, not the program. The program is 30%-40% of weight loss, while your diet is the 60-70%. What you put in your body becomes your body. If you eat clean, your body will be clean (cut, slim, lean). Working out tones the body to lift the weight that you want, ...

You need to think if you've done anything dispite eating lamb that day, because it should not be such a powerfull triger. Maybe you've been under stress or lack of sleep, then a little lamb just was a trigger. My experience was like this. Eating meat just bothers my health, stress is a mighty contributor, lack of sleep, coffee... I have dumped pills and ...

First, just thought I'd mention that it says when joining this stack exchange that questions should not be opinion based. That said, I usually hang mine on a fold up clothes hanger, or over a railing outside. If these aren't options, you could just rinse them in the sink or toss them in a fresh bucket of water.

First of let's get the terminology out of the way. When you write "set", do you actually mean "number of muscles trained"? What one set really mean is that you lift and put down the weight repeatedly until you can't anymore and have to rest. That's one set and if that's all you do per muscle in a week, you're not doing nearly enough work. Or do you mean ...

There is no such thing as a 'correct' routine. Workout plans should be made according to targets, and knowledge of how to hit those targets. The problem is that many different people will suggest different plans to hit those targets. This is because there is some disagreement whether any approach is sure to work for all people. For this reason there are some ...

Working out a muscle once per week is actually common, but you need to put a large volume of training on it. 9 sets of 10 per muscle per week is a rule of thumb I've read, and it applies to both a 3-split and whole-body.

If you were to swap occasional for regular, then this earlier answer of mine may answer you question: "There have also been numerous studies that show a neurobiological effect / benefit of physical exercise, to quote wikipedia:" People who regularly participate in aerobic exercise have greater scores on neuropsychological function and performance ...

Make sure the roti is made from whole-wheat flour, the rice should be brown rice and the bread should be whole grain bread. Also, make sure you eat at least 400 grams of vegetables during the day. The exercise you do should have sufficient intensity, you should measure how fast you run during that 20 minutes. If the pace is slower than about 13 km/h then ...

Exercise will not increase intelligence. However, I can tell you from my own expierience that if you are a consistent exerciser that it definitely increases the conditioner's focus. When I started lifting in high school, I noticed my grades increased drastically and my attention span during class was much longer. Sure, some could call it coincidental but I ...

I think there's many reasons: Some likely do leg work but perhaps run a split routine and leg day is a day you're not in the gym. Some may do a leg intensive sport and working the upper body in the gym is a way to compensate On the other hand some may do an upper body intensive sport and so legs just aren't a goal for them Finally there will be some ...

Many reasons, primarily because leg muscles aren't as visible and often not considered as important aestetically. This is the same reason people don't workout their back enough. Of course, in the long run, doing arms and chest will make you look silly and it will be obvious that you aren't really strong. Some people also think that because they ride their ...

Check your form, or have it checked by a runner. You are not a runner. Before you become a runner you need to make sure your form is good, you aren't too far overweight, and you aren't trying to do too much...too quickly. Landing on your heals can destroy calves. An overweight person can actually get small fractures in their bones from running. I'm not ...

The answer usually varies, but if we are talking about exercises such as swimming, running, walking, and biking(cardio, more commonly known as) then the answer is no as long as you are not doing an insane aerobic workout. For example, say that you are running 3 miles every other day. Will this hurt you in the long run? No. But now say that your friend is ...

It probably maximizes hand strength and works the same as regular push ups(chest, triceps, etc.) But why would you do push ups on your thumbs? You'll end up with 2 broken thumbs and even more serious, 2 broken wrists. Also, not only that, but your traps(upper back) muscles are worked with regular push ups anyway.

You just lot a bit everything ! Strength, stamina, endurance. But it's normal, your nervous system and muscles are not used to being solicited that way anymore. But don't worry, it can come back fast. The mistake you should avoid when coming back to the gym is to try to do the same exercises with the same reps/weight as you used to do. Two and half years ...

If you gained a lot of body fat while off the gym it might be the reason, you would be heavier, your metabolism slower, etc... one would assume that having a lot of stored energy would make us more energetic, stronger but I experienced it first hand in my teenage years, the fatter you get, the harder it is to lose weight and every exercise feels like ...

I have a few suggestions for your workout plan based on the information you have provided: Muscles: Your back needs much more than deadlifts, chins, and shrugs. You should concentrate on pull ups instead of chin ups (probably wide grip, get the teres major involved, which you don't hit with anything else). Maybe a dumbbell pullover. I would definitely add ...

It's important to get a good start and make yourself feel good about your weight loss project. The most important part of weight loss is eating fewer calories than before, it's much, much more important than exercise in that regard. So don't feel bad if it's hard to find ways to exercise in the beginning, it will likely get easier as you lose some weight, ...
