Good to hear. I noticed leg cramps after I started using a sauna regularly and they went away when I hydrated better. I guess there is something to it!

You mentioned everything except the serratus anterior Since you say it hurts when you punch you may want to see if that muscle is involved.

comment Should I be worried that my pelvis pops during leg raises?
Are you describing a snapping in front of the hip? If so, a visit to a therapist could give you an evaluation and specifics to stretch your tight muscles and strengthen your weak muscles to help reduce the chances of snapping.

comment Which parameters define a well-balanced full-body strength training program?
If you just want to focus on "strength-training" you should change the title of your question because "fitness training" would include more parameters than just strength.

comment Does muscle strength reduce the risk and problems of injury?
To be accurate, the ITB is not a muscle to be strengthened. The TFL and hip musculature can be strengthened to relieve problems with ITB syndrome, but that is not the same thing as strengthening the band.

comment Losing body fat
Believe it or not, using a smaller plate, cup or bowl leads to smaller portions. "One cup of food on a small plate looks like more than the same cup of food on a large plate.". Breads, rice and pasta are all carbs and are broken down in the body to sugar. If you are cutting carbs and fats you are cutting the two of the three sources of fuel. This site does not really address diet and nutrition. You may want to try SparkPeople for more diet info.
