I am a certified personal trainer who services all of Brooklyn in the homes of my clients. I am currently certified by the IFA. Hopefully when I have the time I will be able to complete my NASM certification as well as the FMS certification.

comment How long can the work periods in HIIT be?
It seems unlikely that you can got that hard for that long. Are you sure the monitor is accurate?

comment How does stress affect results?
What sort of results are you referring to? Weight loss, or perhaps is it muscle gain?

comment I have a back pain from sitting. Can I still run?
Actually it is pretty much what he had stated himself in the question. He said he was siting a lot and as a result got back pain.

You are very right, even getting out of bed with back pain can force a person into a compensation. If left untreated long enough that too can lead to injury. I really recommend that you look into Grey Cook's work with the FMS.

Adapting a way to move when in pain is ultimately the same thing as compensating to avoid the pain. As we know compensation leads to injury, so the correct thing would be to not run until the issue is addressed.

comment Should we train calves 3 times per week?
t-nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/… This is an article that can shed some light on your question. I didnt read thru the entire thing which is why I am posting it as a comment. The little that I did read seems to really be applicable and helpful here.

comment Standing up suddenly causes tunnel vision?
Although I love this question and would really like to know the answer to it, I have to tell you that it is out of scope for this site. Questions relating general health are off topic.

comment What is an effective and safe way to train shoulders out of the gym?
I agree for he most part with you are saying and that was actually what I was thinking to myself before I posted this question. My thought process however, is that since I have them doing pull downs, I should have them doing the antagonistic movement of that which would be shoulder presses. Ultimately, what I would like to know is if I have them working all heads of the shoulders, but indirectly, will that be balance enough and not lead to injury?

As of now I do not have any dumbbells to lug around to all my clients' homes. This is why I have the bands instead.

Thanks. As you guessed many of my clients wouldn't be able to perform the unmodified version of this exercises. I will certainly try to have them do the knees on chair modification.

comment Can I replace the overhead press with the seated version?
I am not really sure which answer to accept since all of you mentioned the lack of shoulder mobility being a possible cause. As it happens that is indeed what my issue is, and I am currently working on shoulder mobility exercises before I try again. Thanks for the input!

comment Workout to prolong erection?
Why is this any different than asking "which exercise should I perform do enhance my chest?", I think this questions does indeed fall under the scope of the site.

I have recently deloaded all the way back to empty bar for 3 sets of 5. I went down from 95 lbs.

Im at my gym right now playing around with these various grips you posted, but,and this will sound weird, my neck keeps getting in the way so I am unable to get my shoulders up straight. My wrists are not hurting now though.

comment Increasing Weight : Plateau stage
@geeky_sh You most certainly should only increase when you feel comfortable enough to do so. Also, You made no mention as to whether you train with barbells mostly or dumbbells mostly. If you train primarily with barbells then it is easier to increase weight since you only have to increase 5 lbs at a time as opposed to 10 pounds with dumbbells. Just some food for thought.
