comment Optimal method to vary muscle group recruitment?
@eykana - If you want to build mass, lift heavy. Once a week is the suggested rate in order to allow for enough rest. Once you've been lifting for a while you'll know when you can hit the same muscles again, just listen to your body.

I assumed the proper technique was outside the scope of the question as asked.

comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
@Evan Plaice - Again, I never said "go on a diet", I would never say that. I did say to look at his diet and that 2 pounds per week on average is a good healthy weight loss amount. Obviously you will lose more at the beginning than at the end, that's why I said average. His current lifestyle habits are what made him overweight. The only way to lose fat is to change that lifestyle for the better. A majority of weight loss occurs outside of the gym.

comment Which personal trainer certifications are most respected?
@eykanal - If you don't have any experience, I'd pick the one that has the most hands-on requirements instead one of the online certificates. If you have experience, then refer to my answer. As for which will make you a better trainer... if you have the basic knowledge, then only you can make yourself better.

@Even - I never said "go on a diet". Saying that implies that you will some day "go off" your diet. I say you need a "dedicated lifestyle change".

Perhaps we could help if we know what you needed the flexibility for? Are you a contortionist, basketball player, martial artist, etc?

comment Is it possible to “tone” up your muscles?
Certainly not bigger, and they never say leaner. Just "toned".
