comment Im trying to loose weight in my thighs but im gaining alot of muscle in them and its making them bigger
How tall are you for 130? Why do you think you need to lose weight? Oh, and spot reduction is a myth. You can't control where your body stores/uses fat. If your legs were the first place to accumulate fat, they will be the last places to slim down.

comment Would a female champion wrestler overpower an average couch potato man?
How many questions are you trying to squeeze into this? And your basic question would be off topic on every SE site I can think of.

No, it actually doesn't. Stop believing in so much bro-science.

Actually, endurance exercise is very good for fat burning. While there is some debate about HIIT burning a higher percentage of fat for a shorter period, or burning at a lower rate for a longer period, exercise will burn fat, and the lower the intensity, the more you will utilize a fat substrate instead of a carbohydrate substrate. Here's one study for you (Obese women at a 55% intensity level) - ajpendo.physiology.org/content/261/2/E159 If you care to research it, I have other studies I can give you.

comment Tingling sensation in shoulder
@BenLim - That's more common than you might think. I know a lot of people that have injured their shoulders lifting backpacks, suitcases, etc.

We can't diagnose your pain, unfortunately. Your best bet is to go see a medical professional.

The study you cite mentions nothing about sugars, and all types of abdominal fat were affected, not just one type.

Even with the edit, it is still off topic, IMO.

Bad answer. Your answers should be backed up with sources and science, not "as far as I know" and supposition.

comment How to dismantle pull-up (chin-up) bar without destroying it?
Of course you don't think it's off topic, you posted the question. :) But, it's not about how to use the equipment in an exercise routine.

comment What is the minimal body fat percentage with no risks?
2% body fat (Really, anything under 5%) is not healthily sustainable for long term. Even competitive bodybuilders will only stay at that percentage for at maximum a couple of days.

I know what EPOC is, thank you. It will account for anywhere from 50-150 calories over that 36 hour period. Not as much as people think. I was more addressing the misconception you were promoting that steady state does little for fat burning.

That being said, most likely it's stuck in old paint. Try prying under with a screwdriver.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about home repair.

comment Zoning out in and outside of practice
It's also highly personal. While the given answer so far is good, the question just promotes a lot of "I think" and "Well, I experienced" type of answers rather than concrete evidence based.

comment Blood test results of weightlifters, or anyone on a high protein diet?
To clarify - There are some studies that suggest a few minor changes (Such as A1C for endurance athletes), but overall, you can't look at 100 different blood tests and say "That guy is a weightlifter, that girl is a sprinter, and we're not sure what THAT is...". And even those changes still fall into the "normal" ranges.

Why would blood work for a weightlifter be substantially different than the average lay person? Some tests (ECG notably) will show differences, but not blood.

High intensity exercise such as sprinting up hills relies heavily on carbohydrate mechanisms for fuel. Exercise at lower intensities relies on fat mechanisms for fuel. Endurance training has been shown in studies to increase fat metabolism while training.

How do you make your body burn visceral vs. subcutaneous fat?

comment What is the best heart beat range for a 5k training?
Your heart rate will vary wildly from day to day, even with the same amount of exercise. Also, as you get used to training, the same effort will produce a lower heart rate. I would find a good 5k running programme and forget about measuring your heart rate, other than as a means to gauge recovery (How fast it drops after exercise).
