Chess, while a great workout for your mind, does little to improve your physical fitness. If you want to improve physical fitness, try working out your chest.

comment Exercise for Upper chest
While this may sound obvious: ensure that you are eating enough to promote muscle growth. Even with proper exercise, if you don't fuel your body it won't grow.

comment Am I eating right? or way too much?
@MikeS The diet has a ton of carbs, zero fruit, and very little fats or vegetables. Regardless, my point was your advice was poor since it essentially boiled down to "if you are losing body fat then your diet is good" and that kind of black and white statement can be dangerous to those who take it to heart.

The answer is NOT that simple. Even an atrociously poor diet can result in short term fat loss. You want a balanced and healthy diet first, THEN focus on fat loss.

Why was this question downvoted? His comment about the shakes is accurate, as they are more for post-workout supplements than meal replacements. And the following statements were equally true as well.

comment It's really difficult to exercise my triceps, could use some suggestions!
I second JohnP recommendation to see a doctor. Also, I would suggest finding alternate ways to workout the triceps. There are tons of amazing exercises, not the least of which include pulls ups, push ups, chair dips, bench press, and over head barbell press. You may find that the pain is relegated only to that specific workout, and these other exercises may then prove safe to use.

comment 100 push-up. I went from 36 to 28 after being sick. Is it normal? How can I improve?
In addition to what Dave said, make sure you get more sleep. Sleep is a critical element in your ability to perform at optimal levels, as well as your body's ability to build muscle and recover from workouts.

Mark, the question asked about Body Muscle percentage, not about Body Fat.

comment Grouping My Leg Workouts
Don't necessarily discount the effectiveness of compound workouts which target multiple of these muscles at once. Personally I do Squats, Deadlifts, and Power Cleans to hit my legs. Since they are compound, though, it may be tough to figure out which split leg workout to put them in.

comment How many calories should I intake and how much should I “spend” daily?
That is comparing apples to oranges. The correct comparison is, for any one particular individual, whether they would be better off eating X, or X+Y. If my daily caloric expenditure was 1800, I would aim for 1800 in calories consumed per day. What you are saying is if I were to instead consume 3800 calories, that there would be no impact whatsoever to my weight, and that I may even lose weight?

comment How many calories should I intake and how much should I “spend” daily?
-1. This doesn't answer the question asked, and what's more it makes bold statements with no cited scientific evidence. Are you suggesting that someone eating in excess of 4k calories a day would be no better off than someone eating only 2k calories a day, all things being equal?

@JohnP Press is on flat bench, flys are on incline. The only other decline exercise I do is decline push ups.

With regards to working the back, does it matter if it is an upright or bent over barbell row?
