As a 42 year old man myself, I can relate. One thing about getting older is that you have to manage your recovery better, and be more strict on how you address your exercise and nutrition regimen. You need to start by figuring out what the first thing you want to address is: Start with what your desire is--lose fat, get "fit" Decide how to measure your ...

If you are seeking to reduce your "belly" then the workout you have been given will not be enough to achieve your objective. It really depends on what you want to achieve. Cardio alone will help you achieve your objective of losing the "belly". But the most effective way to gain strength and muscle whilst losing the fat is to do circuit training. You ...

Doing abs exercises will not 'reduce' your belly. Targeted exercises don't magically burn more fat in a particular body part. However, it will build abdominal muscles. If you're looking to lose weight in your stomach then you simply need to find a way to burn more calories than you take in so you lose weight in general. Typically cardio exercises are ...

What I am able to understand from your question is that you want to be shredded, and if that is correct then I think your approach is wrong. I will forever be eating a calorie deficit as I cant see myself ever being happy with my body until I'm shredded as (eat about 1500 cals a day) You need to get calories to perform daily activities let alone ...

Generally, you should identify which exercise is more in line with your goals, and do that one first. For instance, as rowers, my team will row first, and lift after. This allows us to perform the row at 100%, while the lift, performed while tired, lacks some intensity and focus. In your case, it would seem like lifting is more in line with your goals, as ...

The only way to know if you've lost weight is to actually measure your weight. The fact that you're no longer experiencing pain does not equate to weight loss. As you've said, it simply means that your body is adapting to the exercise stress it has been under. Keep up the good work, and you will lose weight.

You can simply google the health benefit of each of the fruits/vegetables. Those would be the benefits of consuming those fruits/vegetables. About the consequences of not eating them, (assuming you aren't obtaining the same nutrients from other sources), you'll be deficient in those nutrients as well. I would tell you the health benefits of each ...

I think this is a case where some strength work on the machines can help your dad build up enough basic strength to support his weight to the point where he can do push-ups. The thing is he is going to have to start a bit slower and build up momentum from there. 60 isn't that old, but if he's completely detrained he will likely fatigue pretty quickly. For ...

First, if you need to lose weight, don't plan on doing it quickly as that approach typically ends in yo-yo dieting where you lose then gain it all back. Rather, plan on a change in lifestyle that includes sensible eating and exercise for the long term. Losing more than 1 to 2 pounds per week can be excessive and result in muscle loss as well.

Let's look at the positives: Very high rep work will get you strong, and burn fat. High frequency training (5 days in a row) also accelerate burning fat. Chin ups build great lats, and are a great compound exercise 200 push ups will build solid triceps, chest, and shoulders (front delts) Next, the negatives: Only 10 minutes of cycling for the lower ...

@Berin has given you a very good answer so I will just add that this question/answer about getting back in shape will give you some additional information. As far as your knee pain, you may find that a pair of Nordic Walking Poles can help to lessen the impact on your knees. They can also increase your calorie burn by about 20% over regular walking. ...

in a first time, we cannot tell you how much you can / should loss in a week / month, that depend of many variables. After that, one of the best way is this : Remove sodas of your alimentation. Remove all candy or sweet bar if there is. Restrict the sugar intake (remind that, all things containing flour, is a glucose intake, pasta and rice too) ...

No, fat does not directly turn into muscle. The body breaks down your fat, as well as your food, into usable energy to fuel your daily activities and your exercise. If you eat too much food, your body does not bother to break down the fat. It just uses the food you have eaten. If however you do more activity or exercise than your food (calories) can ...
