This is a WAG, but, if I were you, I'd pay close attention to your symptoms. What you describe may be the onset of Piriformis syndrome which is common in runners. I would include a piriformis stretch in your routine if you are not already doing it.

Another issue, which hasn't been discussed above, but which is the reason why I stopped doing crossfit, is the fact that cross fit focuses on exercise and not on goal-oriented training. This lack of emphasis on goal oriented training makes it hard for beginners to learn and work up to the more difficult and complex movements, potentially leading to injury. ...

The biggest problem with Crossfit really isn't Crossfit. It's the licensing model, and how quickly someone with no prior experience training people can open up their own Crossfit gym (or box as they like to call it). However, more on that later as it pertains to selecting a particular Crossfit gym. Exercise Selection With Crossfit you will experience a ...

In short: An emphasis on optimising reps over time for long periods, with lower emphaisis on correct form. Crossfit isn't inherintly bad because of the exercises it emphasises. There are plenty of questions here that cover the idea that there is no one best way to exercise. People can have preferences, there are programs that are good at reaching goals ...

Here are some core workouts I can think of that shouldn't use the shoulder. Superman (without arms extended) Crunches Reverse Crunch Bicycles Side Crunch Source: I hurt my shoulder back in January and did a lot of these instead of the plank family.

Tonny, Sorry about the shoulder injury. There are minor alternatives to planks; however, they all involve shoulder usage. In my opinion, if you cannot perform plank (an exercise that requires no movement) due to shoulder issues, no other single exercise exists as a substitute. This source highlights some exercises that can be done to replace planks; ...

This is a question you may want to take up with your tailor. If you have been cutting, try to go to a maintenance workout/diet a few weeks before your final measurements. The main point is that you don't want your wedding suit/dress to be anything other than a perfect fit. With most tailor arrangements this will mean you will need to maintain stable ...

Ali, your current exercise routine goes: 30 mins treadmill jogging - 260 calories 10 mins cycling - 40 calories Subway both times - daily lunch/dinner from Subway (correct me if the assumption is wrong) Questions: Apart from Subway meals, do you consume any other snacks or meals? Did you perform your exercises everyday? What's your current ...

Don't be dis-heartened, you may have started to tone, and may of actually started to lose inches, so you should take measurements as well as using the scales. I often find that clients have lost no weight, yet they have lost 2 inches around their waist. As per previous comments, a week is a very short time to see a difference. When you exercise more ...

Assuming an active lifestyle, you need to start with knowing how many calories you need to maintain your weight. The easiest way to do that is to maintain a food diary. Record everything you eat and drink. The simple act of recording your caloric intake will remove all guess work. Once you've established how many calories you need to maintain, simply cut ...

I'm not completely certain the goal of this question as the order is largely dependent on the individual. To effectively answer the question, one has to make some assumptions: The person had a light/no dinner which makes the person naturally hungry in the morning. Some have heavy dinners in order to skip breakfast. The person needs to empty their bowel ...

I am very fit, though I consume a lot of sweets, however, if I for some reason ...

Absolutely yes! One, it constantly elevates your heart rate, burning more calories. Two, the pushups work your entire body (increasing the reps over time will be ideal as it allows your body to get stronger). Three, do that everyday and people will start thinking you're on steroids because of the consistent energy level you'll develop. Four, as long ...

This sounds a lot like Greasing the Groove by Pavel Tsatsouline to be. As explained at this link, it is about training the movement patterns and efficiency, especially around bodyweight exercises. If 10 push-ups is 50-80% and you're not going to failure or overtraining you should be good. I'm not sure if the compounded fatigue is supposed to have any ...
