Exercise program muscle building

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise program muscle building


Avatar n tn The object of the website is to find people to work out with, make friends, and motivate each other. I exercise 30-60 minutes most days. Building muscle is just as important as cardio b/c muscle burns fat more efficiently. I try to work with weights about three times a week. You body will also increase it's metablolism through exercise and will actually stay increased for a couple of hours after you've worked out. Be careful how much you cut down on your food intake.
Avatar n tn Of course, always check with your physician before starting an exercise program, especially if it has been some time since you’ve been physically active. Once you get the green light, go slow — just ten or 15 minutes a day — then increase to 30 minutes a day as you build stamina, Dr. White suggests. Include at least one activity from each of these three areas: flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular. Ready? Check out these 8 arthritis-friendly workouts. They’re sure to get you going.

Avatar n tn Unfortunately it is not the type of excersise necessary to weight loss. Building stamina via exercise will help you keep up with the lil' rascals!
1530342 tn?1405020090 I'm exercising, not losing weight but gaining muscle......According to my food diary, my diet is 75 percent Carbs....which explains why I've lost no weight and instead gained muscle...I'm over here thinking I'm eating right and doing good....Not!!!. I gotta cut out the carbs..I never noticed how much carbs I ate. So a whole new eating plan for me starting tomorrow....I don't want to be muscular. Lean and strong is my goal!!!
627388 tn?1222201812 The types of exercise best suited to you and those which you should avoid The intensity of the workout (how hard you should be working) The duration of your workout and any physical limitations Referrals to other professionals, such as a physical therapist, who can help create a personal exercise program that meets your needs. The type of exercise that works best for you depends on your symptoms, fitness level, and overall health.
Avatar n tn As I have gone on a muscle building program I have become aware that my thigh muscles cannot last more than a minute and a half on the elliptical machine,even when the rate is set at the lowest level. I assume Zocor didn't agree with my muscles. Is it possible that I will ever be able to regain my muscle mass by continuing to work out and eating more protein? Is there a magic pill which might help me in myendeavor to become strong again. I need muscle support!
1339241 tn?1275947093 You have to go to a qualified exercise therapist with experience in relieving disk pressure on a nerve. Generally they will only take referrals from an M.D. after evaluating an MRI to avoid litigation by recommending exercises that would cause damage. These people are pretty good and the exercises really have to be shown in person. Exercises to improve muscle tone are used because that is what keeps disc separation within normal limits. Usually intermittant mild axial traction is recommended.
1396846 tn?1332463110 But what I call spasticity is an unusual soreness of the muscle. The muscle also feels weaker than normal. A spasm is a tightening of the muscle - a cramp, basically.
Avatar n tn I agree with changing up your exercises. It's true that when first beginning an exercise program you can be building muscle, rather than losing weight. You should always take your measurements before beginning an exercise regimen, because often measurements will decrease while the scale will not. You should also get checked for medical conditions, such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance and PCOS, which can all cause weight gain/inability to lose.
3203287 tn?1346460234 Has anyone had any problems continuing their exercise program during the treatment?
Avatar n tn Hi I'm intersted on your thoughts on this one? How safe is exercise? I know it depends on the person but if you are generally seen to be healthy.....statistically how likely is it that you could have a heart attack out of the blue when running, etc? Horrible thing to think about but I was chatting to a nurse the other day and she said she would never advise anyone to go out and exercise now.
572651 tn?1531002957 That would be the best place to get a real feel for the type of exercise activity Dr. Karpatkin recommends (it's not body building gym work). For those not inspired to find out more, that's ok too. No need to explain or defend yourself. Excuse me for stating the obvious. It isn't clear to me what is so disturbing here.
Avatar f tn I also wanted to mention what I thought I understood was that extreme exercise can also raise LFT's. Exercise after all tears down muscle and I thought that I understood that this tissue destruction could cause a brief raising of LFT's. I believe that this was one of the reason they used to detect heart attacks w/ (I think) ALT. For this reason remember.....if you are getting some blood tests (like LFT's) no extreme exercise first since it could skew your results.
11079760 tn?1483389730 A few minutes of stationary bike riding before going to bed is suppose to boost blood and nerve supply to the lower limbs and help reduce cramping. Ice pack, putting an ice pack on the muscle for a few minutes may also help the muscle relax. Dietary changes: increase Magnesium, Potassium and Hydration and lower sodium. The best food sources of magnesium are legumes, nuts, seeds, fish and whole grains.
Avatar n tn If your physican doesnt find anything wrong with the site you might try either varying the intensity of the workouts on the ellipitcal or trying a different exercise. Either way keeping a exercise program is important so find something you can do. If you havent had a regular exercise program until now, it wouldnt be surprising to have some pains and fatigue in the legs. Progress slowly and overtime it should go away.
173930 tn?1196341998 It is important to do some form of exercise because once you stop treatment the muscle loss/weight loss that happens returns and is in the form of fat, flab. I was very thin during tx, I didnt exercise and the weight returned as fat. Exercise is also good for depression and anxiety. Go for walks, drink plenty water, whatever you do dont just lie down all the time, stay active when you can, and rest when needed.
Avatar n tn I am 59 years old, Have a personal trainer who started me off 1 year ago on a programme of stretching and core muscle building twice a week for an hour for 4 months. During this time I did 3 weekly work outs aerobically which comprised 20 minutes on a treadmill and 20 minutes on a cycle. My resting heart rate is 66. In the beginning I could only keep within the "fat burn zone of 80%" using the cycle on level 1.
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar f tn I too had a recent CMV infection nearing the age of 40 and have undergone a whole host of neurological problems. Cytomegalovirus caused muscle twitching fasciculations, muscle spasms, heat and cold sensitivity, myopathy, aches and pains, spine pain, sleep disorders, major exercise intolerance, headaches, light sensitivity .... etc. This went on for at least 4 months before it began to subside.
2019518 tn?1328536221 age 52, post menopauseal since 05, and I eat healthy at least 5 meals a day. I don't smoke or drink. I exercise 5 days a week early in the mornings I do tabata workouts on an empty stomach and and in the evenings I do 45 min. light to medium high reps weight workouts. However, I can't seem to lose body fat or at least it is quite slow in comming off. I know muscle weighs more. My tabata's leave me drenched. I am pushing hardcore, and I do get sore from my workouts.
Avatar n tn In late April 2005, one evening I started to have pain and tightness in my left trapezius muscle. I have never been a migraine person, or someone who has suffered from muscle spasms. Before all of this started, I was a healthy person who lives a healthy lifestyle. The night that the spasm started, it got progressively worse, by the next morning, I was unable to turn my head, and pain was shooting down my left arm into my pinky finger.
Avatar n tn It sounds horrible when you feel tired but when I kick myself in the rear and do a few sit-ups , push-ups and some free weights I feel much better and I see muscle building up. The thing about strength training is you can pace yourself. Even if you are very weak you can still do a smaller weight with less repetitions and longer breaks inbetween but it is sooooooo much better for you than doing nothing. It helps metabolism , sleep ect.....
Avatar f tn Also devote a little time to building muscle. Cardio activity is a good idea, but building muscle will help you with stability. Oddly enough, I have certain activities that I can't do, but I can still lift certain kinds of weights.
Avatar f tn If you've noticed your weight going up after starting an exercise program, don't panic! It doesn't necessarily mean you're doing anything wrong. It may seem obvious, but eating more calories than you burn causes weight gain. What some people don't realize is that, after they start exercising, they may start eating more without being aware of it. Whatever the cause of your weight gain, don't give up on exercise... It's not only your ticket to weight loss, it's also important for your health.
660974 tn?1248276268 Welcome. You could be building more muscle as msniki412 said OR you could be eating not enough calories. If you don't eat enough, your body will go into "starvation mode" because it thinks there won't be enough food coming to keep it going. Additionally, I must ask if you have checked with your doctor to make sure you don't have any underlying medical issues that might cause weight gain/retention, such as thyroid, insulin resistance, pcos, etc.
1161780 tn?1266715444 If you must walk in steep areas, slow down when going uphill to avoid working too hard. Monitor your heart rate closely. 7.) If your exercise program has been interrupted for a few days (for example, due to illness, vacation, or bad weather), ease back into the routine. Start with a reduced level of activity, and gradually increase it until you’re back where you started.
Avatar f tn My hubby is a fitness nut and he has started an exercise program for me that doesn't put me on the couch the rest of the day. I use to love to walk too, but don't make it far before I have to turn around and come home. So now with just a few exercises to get through I am feeling like I'm accomplishing something, and in a few weeks we will add on a few more exercises.
798555 tn?1292791151 Loosening the muscle (if it wont stretch) via acupressure or trigger point release can relieve joint and muscle pain. What brings this up was a recent experience of "burning feet" (new to me and very wierd) from FT4 under the range (totally off) which resulted in a 58 tsh. Another member mentioned burning feet to me with low thyroid levels. At tsh of 24 now, my feet feel better.
