"I've heard many people complain about not losing weight after a week" These are the same people who jump from program to program, expecting quick results. They're also the kind to jump on the latest weight loss fad/bandwagon. Don't be that guy :) "I've also heard people not seeing/feeling a difference after a month or so" These guys have the ...

The question is quite generic (no objectives on train or diet given). So, I'll answer based on my experience. When I want to cut (lose fat) I give a 3 week buffer period before changing the plan (diet or train) if not seeing the desired results. For instance, you are aiming to lose 1 lb of weight per week. But, it is common for the weight to fluctuate ...

It's a pretty broad question and all I can offer up is anecdotal knowledge, but I'll take a stab at it. If I really dial in my diet, walk a couple of hours each day, and keep lifting, I can drop about 1lb of fat per week. I think that's "noticeable" on someone who otherwise stays pretty lean. More simply, a skinny person losing 10 pounds looks a lot ...

If you can not eat enough, if you try going to a nutricionist explaining your problem and he can't give you a solution junt by eating normal food, he might tell you to take carb-shakes. They have a high ratio between calories and volume. I'm not telling you just to drink gainers all day long. Just try to combine it with a healthy high caloric diet. If you ...

I would suggest you skip the DVDs and get the StrongLifts app. It's a beginners strength program and the app makes it super easy to follow. If you're just switching to strength training I'm certain you'll see some really nice gains the coming months. Should you also want to keep your metcon up while using SL, then just throw in the odd Tabata workouts. Five ...

I know your question mentions this is not about food, but I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding. If you cannot even eat a maintenance diet, you should not be burning even more calories on exercise. An alternate question title could have been: "My car has run out of gas, how do I keep driving?" Obviously this question would be absurd. But that's ...

It is very normal to sweat during a weight lifting training and even necessary for the body to cool off during the workout. When you workout your body need extra energy to do the training, it burns more fuel, it creates more heat and thus needs to cool itself = sweating. You usually sweat more in cardio because you burn more, but also in weight lifting. ...

Listing exercises and how many sets or series will depend on your body structure and your experience, but there are some assumptions. If you are talking about build more muscle mass in your chest region, in a "bulking" context, you should priorize compound exercises which have chest region as one of its important targets, but these exercises, for example, ...

Some people have better genetics for creating a beautiful chest, some people will always have ugly chests. All we can do is make the most of what we're dealt. Start out by working out your whole chest, increase muscle mass in pecs, delts as well as traps and lats, having nice abs will help as well. Also lower your body fat level to the level you prefer. ...

Yes, it is normal to sweat while lifting weight, especially if you do compound lifts like squats and deadlifts, it also depends heavily on the temperature in the room. I sweat a lot more in the summer. The reason why you sweat is to maintain your body temperature at around 37 degrees, when you use energy in any way, you will be pushing your temperature ...

There are numerous body building programs out there that you can move into. In the beginning, I'd recommended sticking with a good compound strength training program. The one you mentioned seems to fit that category nicely. I'd additionally recommend sticking with it until you (at least) hit the intermediate strength standards on your compound lifts. The ...
