Your first step would be making sure your body has the fuel to develop and recover with your exercise. To develop muscle effectively you should be at least eating at a maintenance, preferably at a bulk. Next, carry on doing martial arts! I did Tae Kwon Do for about 6 years in my youth and as a result I have a very well developed lower body. MY legs can ...

Squats. Lots and lots of squats. Squat variations. Lots and lots of squat variations and progressions. Lunges and lunge variations as well. Have a look at something like Convict Conditioning and work your way up to pistol squats.

It's probably bad form to just post a link as an answer, but honestly I don't think anyone could explain this better than Paul Ingraham on his blog PainScience, with the references and studies to back everything up: https://www.painscience.com/articles/posture.php and https://www.painscience.com/articles/structuralism.php Regarding braces (this is about ...

First of all, you'd need to know what it is you're getting. Osta-Red contains ostarine, which is another name for a substance known as enobosarm. Its chemical formula is (or should be) (2S)-3-(4-cyanophenoxy)-N-[4-cyano-3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanamide. However, the name "ostarine" has also become associated with andarine, which has ...

You don't "start over" unless you stop lifting for several months. The point is to always be stronger for the rest of your life. The point is not to lift the weight and then pretend you can't lift the heavy weight. If you miss a rep on one exercise, it doesn't affect the others. They track separately. If you miss one rep of, say, a squat, then try that ...

I had the exact same issue when I was younger. Walking "fast" caused my shins to cramp up. (I assume you mean the shins with the front part?) If this is the case, you should consider taking a magnesium supplement. This did wonders for me and helps push out the lactic acid your muscles. As soon as I started taking a small magnesium supplement for about a ...

It is not normal because you only walk, not running fast or exercise. Your calves may lack stretch, try some like following : http://www.drnickcampos.com/health-newsletter/Los%20Angeles%20Chiropractic--shin%20splints.jpg Remember to stretch less than 30 seconds before exercise, or any long/fast walk, and 90 plus seconds everyday before sleep. If that ...

The question is rather vague, but there are a few potential reasons you aren't gaining muscle. Remember, these are only possibilities, since it is hard to diagnose the problem off of very limited information. 1) You have not been lifting for a long enough period of time. After two months of lifting, you "might" notice changes in your body, assuming you ...

It's irrelevant what you used to do. You may have some head start with weight lifting but if you haven't lifted in a while , you probably lost a nice amount of strength. Either way pick a beginner weight lifting program like starting strength or 5x5 stronglifts and it will help you progress properly and safely. It will help you choose your starting weight ...

When it comes to choosing a plan after such a long break, a good approach will be treating yourself as of a beginner. That means starting with a full body workout about 3 times a week. The reason for doing that is to let your body accommodate to the "new" stress it's going through. Don't avoid compound & heavy exercises such as deadlift and squat, but ...
