I'm just finishing up my undergraduate degree in linguistics. I enjoy dance, and have been recently getting into running. In the past I've also done some yoga and martial arts. Basically, just trying to be active and have fun with it! I enjoy learning more about how our bodies work and how to exercise effectively.

comment Abdominal excercises (with weight) - Easy on the back and fun to do
Try doing your sit ups with an Abmat; it'll make everything much easier on your back. I used to hate si tups, but this makes it better. And like everyone else said, maybe try some body weight exercises where you're not on your back.

So essentially, the muscles that endurance athletes do have, are more myofibril (actual muscle lifting power) and less sarcoplasm (ATP storage)?

comment Why does cardio/aerobic exercise lead to muscle loss?
So this is maybe a dumb follow up question. But how does endurance training burn calories if your muscles aren't that large. Is it that the energy is going to bringing energy and to those muscles over a longer period of time? And supplying your body with oxygen?
