comment Do the principles behind the shakeweight and related products work? (a lot of quick, short impulse muscle contractions)
Just like power plates, the Free University of Amsterdam got in a lawsuit for busting their claims

comment Is it healthy to exercise a muscle when it's still sore?
While it's true that: "no pain, no gain" there's an optimum for when your body is super-imposed compared to before the workout and that's when you want to be working out that same muscles again. When that is varies between people, so the 48 hours might work for you but it might be something else for someone else

comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
'Muscle burns more calories'? You mean in rest? Because that won't be enough to loose 40 pounds, I would recommend do focus on more cardio first, you can work on the muscles once the weight is gone.

What kind of exercise do you do in the gym? Lifting weights isn't the most efficient way to burn calories.

You can try lifting your kids in sets of 50, if you do all 4 of them that's a nice workout!

comment Will I effectively lose weight only by running? Is it better than doing full body workout?
@Matthew, I just view it as good sportsmanship ;-) Though it might be better to have these discussions on chat in the future!

Ah @Matthew, it was meant to emphasize the thing that using your own (heavy) weight is a great tool and that moving it 'faster' costs more energy. But off course, this is a great simplification

@Matthew, you're body isn't a car that stays at that speed magically. You have to propel your legs every step, those legs have a weight and their speed is most certainly not constant. Furthermore, your forward speed may be 'constant' but bouncing up and down like you do in running requires forces that need to be generated. The more you weight, the higher the forces and the harder you'll have to work.

Feel free to include it in your answer @Jeff ;-) I don't have anything to add beyond your original answer anyway!

Also don't split up the cardio to anything shorter than half an hour, your body needs time to get the real fat burning going. So if your keen on doing two workouts, make sure not to skimp on the cardio!

Not everybody wants to look like a body builder ;-) Besides you can loose weight and still not be slender or athletic. I think it's better to loose some weight first and get into better shape, before doing additional workouts. But in the end it's all down to preferences

You mean they want to get bigger or leaner muscles?
