Your concerns are absolutely spot on. Your not doing this right. Running 6 times a week is sapping your ambition and body. Cut the sessions down to 3-4 times per week with days between them and vary the intensity. For example: Mon - normal pace Tue - rest Wed - normal pace Thu - lighter pace Fri - rest Sat - fastest pace (beat your ...

This comes from a girl, so please take with a grain of salt. You have said you want to become bigger and "fatter" - running won't help. I'm assuming you want muscle and not fat - you should put on lean muscle mass as opposed to just body fat. Drinking protein shakes can help you do that. To develop the muscle, you’ll need to strength train on a regular ...

If you have several days in a row where you are tired and unmotivated, by all means take a day or two off. This is your body telling you that it needs a break. If all it is, is that you feel tired because it was a long day at work, get out and go running. Basically you just need to learn to listen to your body, and not your head. Your body will tell you ...

I suggest you to buy medicine ball. She will help you for new variants of exercises where other muscles start to act. Or some dumbbells, weight most often help to increase strength. To " lose body fat" you'll need to burn more calories from taking over the day. Diet and training help, but i am not sure they are enough. What i mean? Best training for losing ...

It Can Always Get Harder Elevate your feet higher. Do more squats, deeper, in every set. Plank for a minute. Go through the entire sequence four times instead of three, trying to finish in the same amount of time. Add lunges, burpees, or clapping push-ups to the sequence. Do more of what you're doing, do what you're doing better, do a harder version ...

Try bodyweight training. I try a bodyweight training that I have found at hybridathlete.com

There are plenty of ways to make bodyweight exercises harder, and they generally involve decreasing leverage to making exercises harder, or doing unilateral exercises. For example, using just your current plan. 10 uneven push ups (one hand higher than the other, alternating) 25 one-legged squats 30 second birddogs ( a plank with oneleg and the opposite ...

If you incorporate more standing and walking during the day you will burn more calories without having to go to the gym. [1] Stand up at work (and at home). Try not to sit in an office chair or on the couch for hours on end. To your list of exercises I would add two elements: some kind of sit-ups or crunches to work the abdominal muscles pull-ups or ...

You get better because you put training stress on your system - that is what causes the adaptation. Initially, pretty much everything you do causes training stress, so you get better, but if you keep running at the same intensity, you will plateau. Which may be fine if that's where you want to be. If you want to continue to improve, however, you need what ...

I know that bodybuilding makes you heavier, stronger and more attractive, but is it really beneficial for one's health in the long run? Bodybuilding is not strength training. Bodybuilding is a very specific practice to improve one's looks. Strength training, by contrast, is training to improve the capabilities of one's body. Strength training is the ...

The advice contained on a number of health sites (eg NHS UK or Harvard Medical School) positively recommend progressive "resistance" training twice every week (in addition to cardio-vascular training) - because of the health benefits it brings. Not only are you conditioning your muscles, but also combating loss of bone density as well as strengthening and ...

It should be noted that it's very hard to make good studies showing wether exercise helps or not. All you can do is to ask old people about their history of exercise and correlate it with their health (or ask their relatives if they are dead.), but this correlation will contain unwanted components. For example; people who exercise often eat different food ...
