Do not regret this break from your weightlifting and take the opportunity to become an even better weightlifter. The trainers I have had, most often has used about half of the workout for yoga exercises to improve flexibility, range, mobility and core strength. Exercises like over-the-head-squats demands extremely high flexibility. You can highly improve ...

If you consider yourself handy then you could consider building some weightlifting equipment yourself. It is cheap and surprisingly simple. Although I do recommend that you do buy the barbell since making one out of wood or other common materials would be considerably weaker or larger if you try to maintain the same strength. Buff Dudes have a Youtube ...

Freeletics are great. I myself sadly cannot stand doing those exercises (tried, failed), some of us are just better suited to be gym-rats. As a beginner these exercises will have a great impact on you. The main point being that you are a still a beginner and that means you need some quick and consistent results to keep you hooked on exercising. Begginers ...

This is fairly similar to a question I had answered here: Which exercise program is better for fat loss? To start, keep in mind (as another user had answered in the linked question) your diet is your key factor. So regardless of your choice, it is how and what you eat that will determine your results. As someone who is already fit and wants to add muscles, ...

A healthy diet means a healthy body, I'm not saying to start a diet, but to eat healthier, more greens, fruits, vegetables, less processed/fast foods. Hair loss can be related to stress, and judging by your work, study field I'm assuming you can be put under a lot of it, B-complex can help you out lowering down your stress levels, there's also some shampoos ...

Training is in essence applying force to a resistance. How that resistance looks like is just limited to your imagination. The World is your gym (phrase stolen from Ross Enamait) go out and train outside in fresh air, you can do pull-ups, chin-ups, dips on trees or monkey bars on playgrounds, using heavy stones, barrels or kegs for overhead lifting or ...

Get a pullup/chinup bar. You can get one for about $20. Buy a couple of parallel bars where you can do dips. If you have a couple of sturdy chairs, they will do. Pullups, chinups, dips, pushups, planks, bodyweight squats are all great exercises that could make up for a very decent routine.

What you have described above is similar to what I do for my antagonist training for bouldering. I do recommend adding something like supermans, the ones where you lay on your stomach and lift your shoulders, head, arms, and feet off the ground, these will build the muscles that climbers neglect in the back. I would also recommend training the antagonist ...

First of all, yoga never ment to be about body physique. As stated in yoga "bible" - "Yoga Sutras of Patanjali", yoga is restraining the mind-stuff (Chitta) from taking various forms (Vrittis)1 which is explained as yoga essentially consists of meditative practices culminating in attaining a state of consciousness free from all modes of ...

It can help only of you can do This kinds of exercices and that's not even true Yoga. So to be honest with you, if you think that you're really skinny and you're not hitting bodybuilding at the same time, yoga won't give you the result you're looking for. Yoga helps you add strength to the small muscles and parts of your body that are normally neglected ...

Gymnastic Strength Training is a perfect option for you in my opinion. It is very well designed program with tons of progressions and requires almost negligible equipment.

If you’ve got steps in your house/apartment, you can duplicate those exercises easily. In fact, stairs can be used for a variety of exercises. For starters, try Stair Tricep Dips with Triceps press on the stairs. You can substitute step ups on the stairs for your leg work. Additionally, if you can get a hold of an exercise ball, or, aerobic step, those ...

I can recommend diamond push-ups or bodyweight tricep extensions both of them in combination with doing wide grip push ups where you go close to the ground and swing from the left to the right without pushing yourself up.

First off, have you seen your doctor about this? This could be something innocuous like low blood sugar or not being in the best shape to start with. It could also be something considerably more serious. And is it specifically the crunches that cause the dizziness? Do you get the same dizziness if you do a standing crunch (standing upright, hands behind your ...

Yes, every type of exercise is good to start with. However I don't know for sure if freeletics is free, so you could also look up calistenics workouts on youtube or the rest of the internet, there are plenty. For gaining strength your body has to be shocked and has to addapt to that shock. The shock has to be great enough to still shock you. Freeletics is ...

My friend, Albert had suggested that i should stop doing exercises and give maximum rest to my legs. He was having the opinion that if i ignore the spider veins it will turn in to painful ...

The only thing that becomes impractical is performing lifts where you would normally just drop the weights like the Clean and the Snatch. You either need to reverse the steps to set the bar down under some control or you need to perform other movements. Another option would be to invest in the bumper plates (bumper plates is the technical term for the kind ...

HIIT exercises are cardio exercises that are designed to burn a lot of calories in the shortest time possible.

Is the Insanity workout a good approach? If you need to pay for your routine, no. If it is, should I be following the diet it recommends (including the protein powder)? Absolutely not. Since you mention that you are quite skinny, what I recommend is eating more than usual (caloric surplus). Protein shake should not be your main source of protein. If you ...
