comment What exercises to do for archery antagonists?
@Florian - Honestly, I'd think about upping the reps, maybe go to 3x8, and then progress to 3x10, but you're probably going to get the most benefit out of shooting more (if you have the time).

comment What exercises to do for archery antagonists?
@Florian - The muscles are listed in that PDF, and most are shoulder. If you've been doing those, my guess is that a) You need to progress more in the endurance, and that b) you aren't really used to a daylong competition environment. Most likely you just need "more". :) You've got triceps/biceps (upper arm) rhomboid (back/shoulder), deltoid (shoulder), brachialis (upper arm under biceps), trapezius (neck/shoulder) and serratus (ribs/shoulderblade).

comment What exercises to do for archery antagonists?
@hhh - Not necessarily. The lats are going to be involved, but with the upper arm and shoulder retraction there are going to be a lot more muscles involved than just lats. For the OP, you ask about antagonist then specify agonist. Which do you want?

comment Should i drink proteinshakes or eat proteinbars on my chilldays?
Full body exercises that are 90% upper body? Just because you stand on your legs while doing curls doesn't make that a full body exercise.

comment How can I add more running sessions per week safely?
Good feedback, everyone reacts to things differently. If you truly want to add more sessions, I would go with short (10-15 min) morning (or night if you already run in the AM) sessions 1-2 times a week and gradually increase the frequency of those. Good luck with your running!

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

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.

comment Hourly 30 second workouts for the workday?
@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.
