Yea Allyson! You are young and have already started getting on the right track. You write that you have "got a lot of physical problems to overcome" so make sure that you have cleared anything that you need to clear with your doctor. This question/answer about getting back in shape will give you some good steps to take that includes cardio, postural or ...

I agree with arober11, swimming is a good exercise, especially when you are "a little over" and because you "can barely move your legs or stand", it is very joint-friendly and of course it also trains many muscle-groups at the same time. I would also recommend you to do a litte strenght workout, even it is only once or twice a week --> you don't have to do ...

Swimming is a good general exercise, as it will work most of your muscle groups, but if you just want to work your core try a combination of: Squats, Planking, and a few Crunch variations.

NOTE: This is an incomplete answer. There are so many things wrong with this routine. I am in the process of creating a couple of routine assessment apps to assemble the data necessary to explain further. This routine needs a lot of work. The major problems are the over training of many muscles, it does not allow sufficient rest between workout days, ...

There are a variety of triceps exercises you can perform. However, if done incorrectly, some of them can impact shoulder problems. To lessen any potential problems, I’d suggest you warm up by doing some light shoulder stretching, and, use relatively light weight to begin. I’ll list a few, but, if they cause discomfort, you should stop immediately. ...

I don’t know that this has ever been studied. That may be because there are many factors involved in “seeing some decent results”, the least of which, may be the order of the exercises. However, if you frame it in the context of whether the biceps or the triceps needs more improvement, or, whether your goal is big arms, then, order may make a difference. ...

I am not a big fan of whole body workouts. For me, whole body workouts, depending on the intensity, can require too much recovery time. The benefits of split routines is generally acknowledged. Regularly performing a weight training routine that combines both push and pull muscle groups within the same workout is ideal for several reasons. First, ...

Overall its an good option you are targeting every parts of you body, but be sure you do not overdo it. You exercise routine totally depends upon your endurance level. Try consulting your doctor if you have any prolong illness. Just remember don't over do it, progress gradually. Take a rest keep your heart beat bellow 100 and hit again.

I've seen professional Muay Thai fighters complete 2hour+ morning sessions that included running, sparring/bag work and strength training - so yes, it's quite possible to do what you described - or even endure much longer training sessions on a daily basis...but like other people mentioned, your level of fitness will decide whether you're over-training or ...

Honestly, cut the machines out of your routine, and add in the free weights (barbell/ olympic lifts). I suggest getting on a strength training program such as StrongLifts, Ripetoes Starting Strength, Candito, etc. I personally use StrongLifts as my current program. A strength training/powerlifting program is going to shred any unwanted fat, give you the ...

Given what you have said - that you are a relative beginner and you are working to not be skinny fat - I don't think either routine is particularly good. Because of the overlap in the routines (the repeats and things like flat bench/incline bench and squats/leg press) and the number of reps, this looks like a routine for somebody who is interested in muscle ...

Yes you can do that, but it depends what your goals are. However IMO you may not want to do that everyday as that could be a cause for over training if that is what you mean.

It's only an hour's worth of work, and it covers a wide variety of parts of the body and types of exercise, so you should be fine. Just listen to your body and take breaks where you need to.

It is absolutely impossible to eliminate body fat in "only one place". Lifting weights has no connection to eliminating body fat. Lifting weights makes your muscles larger (which is totally fantastic) but has no connection to eliminating body fat. The only way to eliminate body fat is via diet. Body fat is simply caused by eating carbohydrates, which ...

The loading on a smith machine is completely different from a barbell squat. The barbell squat provided one has excellent technique is most definitely superior to a smith machine squat for several reasons. The smith machine prevents the stabilisers (especially the core) to engage thus resulting in a lower muscle recruitment than a barbell squat. This is ...
