@LarissaGodzilla - Ah, NCT. Yes, the latest get muscular faster gimmick. I'm holding my opinions on it until it's a bit more proven.

@LarissaGodzilla - not sure what cns effects you are referring to.

comment Precautions for difficulty faced on first day of gym
Vomiting after/during very intense workouts is common, as @Doc suggests. Especially if you are new to exercise, pushing like that when you are already exhausted can cause them. As for why during situp, when you do situps you are compressing the muscles across the abdomen, which in turn can increase the pressure on your stomach. If it's already upset, that could easily trigger it.

@LarissaGodzilla - However, that's supposing that the individual exercise sessions combine, which they won't. You can't "add up" short little bursts like that to get a net effect. Basically they are getting up, alleviating the "sitting syndrome" and not much more, but it is a much healthier alternative to sitting in a chair for 8 hours.

@LarissaGodzilla - The afterburn effect is well documented, and occurs after most exercise sessions. The intensity and duration of the exercise affect it, i.e. the longer and more intense, the bigger the effect. However, the net burn over the next 24ish hours from the workout is a maximum of 10%. So for about 4 minutes (30 seconds per hour/8 hours) of exercise, you're going to burn about 60 calories (Guesstimate), so that's at most an extra 6 calories over the next day. Better than nothing, but nowhere near what you are thinking of.

comment Difficulty adjusting to body after I fixed anterior pelvic tilt
So...you read symptoms on the internet, self diagnosed, self corrected, and now you get pain when doing exercises that didn't used to give you pain. Can I ask why you thought you had/needed to correct for anterior tilt?

comment How to compensate for extended cardio as body builder
Carbs are not bad, as long as you eat the right kind of carbs. I really like the cookbook "Racing Weight", which shows how to get a higher carb diet for endurance athletes without the modern diet encumbrances (refined and empty carbs). As long as you allow for some extra carbs to replenish the glycogen stores you should be fine. Self monitor for fatigue and nap/rest a little more if necessary.

comment What's the easiest way to hit your macros?
@user8496 - Other than eating trends, it can often be counterproductive to micromanage calories on a long term basis. What calorie tracking initially does is make you aware of not only how much, but what you are eating as well. Many people way underestimate the calories they are consuming, and keeping a daily log can help correct that. Once you have a good handle on it, however, you can ease off the bite by bite analysis and go with scale trends.

comment Goal - lose weight but get stronger. Is weightlifting + dance + martial arts overkill?
@Tracyat2bactive - That is highly individualized. I know many people that run every day of the week, and/or do triathlon workouts 7 days a week. Definitely need a day of easy/low intensity, but there's nothing mandatory about a complete rest day.

@Doc - I think it will probably have a good place in rehab/limitation therapy, but I'm still waiting for evidence on it. :)

@MarkA - Cool. I have also looked at HIIT, and while I believe it has a place and use, I don't believe it is the "anything and everything" workout adherents claim. I especially like when people make claims like "Complete an Ironman in record time on only 30 minute workouts a day!"

@MarkA - Definitely do some reading - While myofascial release is a new wrinkle in treatments, there is yet scant evidence that it does anything more than placebo. YMMV.

comment How often does running or weight lifting cause capillary bursts?
Have you had any recent illnesses or changed diet? Increased bruising can be a sign of certain nutritional deficiencies. It's possible that it could be caused by exercise alone, but I would expect it to be more widespread in that case. I would second the recommendation to get a consultation with a medical practitioner.

If you want to discuss it in chat, we can. I don't think what you described fits what the OP was asking for.

@Kneel-Before-ZOD - No, I downvoted it because it doesn't answer the OP's question. The OP asked for suggestions on things that they can do once per hour for 30 seconds, and guidance on whether they should do a single body part each day or per each exercise. You ignored all that and simply gave your workout routine.
