Common Questions and Answers about How to workout at gym


Avatar f tn Ask the gym personal to show you how to use the various machines. Diet is you first thing to do!! Just starting out should shoot for three cardio workouts and two strength-training sessions per week. Schedule your cardio sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and your strength-training workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This schedule allows time for your muscles to heal and recover between sessions.

Avatar m tn hmm... yea i already eat alot but nothing is helping ...!! Shud i take mega mass or other food supplements?? do they have sideeffects ??
Avatar m tn Yesterday I was at LA Fitness gym, at the end of my workout a guy was asking me about the roundhouse karate kicks I do over the machines in between weight training sets. While I was explaining my workout routine to him I had a sense that he might be high on pain meds. He had this calm peaceful look with a faint smile and his eyes were glassy and a little red. I thought I might be imagining things because of my opiate experience and recently getting over a mild relapse.
Avatar n tn I have a pretty random question. I've been going to the gym for the past weeks to "turn my body into a weapon:" and decided to get my measurements. I've been pretty freaked out over herpes so have spent a lot of time reading the post on the forum. I now notice things with other people that I have never noticed before. Like I check their lips to see if they have a cold sore and really just to a really brief look over.
Avatar f tn but we are all at the gym to either better ourselves or to maintain what we have! Now get up and go to the gym. Meet new people and become a gym rat.
758958 tn?1253769984 Maybe talk about what you do at the gym, your favorite machines or your favorite classes. Even if you're not a gym person, what do you do at home to get the results you want, what have you found that works really well for you. How long do you usually work out for and how many times a week? It's hard doin this alone so lets all be online GYM pals! Good luck to everyone, keep at it!!
Avatar f tn Im 35 weeks and still going to the gym. (4 days ) my dr. Said to stay active since i was extremely active before but i was wondering if anyone is doing the same or plan to.. or did it help with bringing labor or thru labor ?
Avatar n tn Are you losing weight at all? The best way to keep weight off is to lose a bit at a time so it stays off, and you don't say if you're getting anywhere or getting nowhere. I would ask, if this exercise is new to you, meaning you weren't doing this before, do you notice anything positive happening in the shape of your body?
Avatar m tn So my main question(s) is anyone else go through a similar situation and how did you get yourself better and able to start going to gym again and workout?
Avatar f tn Really just listen to your body, don't push yourself. If you feel like you should stop, stop. Try not to use any weight until you're a little further along but keep the weight low and make sure you pay attention to how you feel.
Avatar n tn Some people do splits (working out certain muscle groups on certain days of the week), others do a full body workout when they lift--I would recommend splits to maximize protein synthesis and recovery. So, maybe you could do Back, biceps, and calves on one day, chest, shoulders, and triceps on the next, and then Legs and calves again the third day. Give yourself a day of rest and then repeat the cycle--or mix it up.
Avatar f tn Take a before picture to be your guide. Try to have a gym buddy to have company on your workout and be motivated.
Avatar f tn I also thought maybe I wasn't eating enough close to gym time, so I have been making it a point to eat a good snack (tuna and crackers, banana, yogurt with granola, etc.) at least 30 minutes before my workout. Although the episodes aren't as frequent as when I wasn't eating anything before the gym, I am still experiencing these "near pass out" episodes about once a month. The only thing that helps when an episode occurs is laying flat on the ground for about 5-10 minutes.
Avatar m tn I was at the gym getting ready to workout and i grabbed the spray bottle that has cleaner in it to clean the bench. When i grabbed i scrapped my finger on the handle of the bottle. I looked at it and it bled a little but was still a very small cut/scrape. I wanted to know if this puts me at risk since i dont know how long it had been since anyone had used it.
Avatar n tn One of the guys there at the gym said there is no way I should be doing ANY weights for at least 6-8 weeks... he was suprized the Dr's ok-d me to go for it. I way overdid on Monday and so I just went easy today (Wed) and am still sore (in my neck) but I am just going slow. As far as the hypo part.... just stay on your meds and get them regulated and there should be no problems.
484167 tn?1210004996 Yes, I agree with your thoughts, early morning we are totally relaxed and feel fresh and so do not get exhausted too early whereas at the end of day, due to stress and strain to body due to daily activities of life including work, you tend to get too tired, feel weak and exhausted to do any physical activity or sustain it. I suggest you to have small snacks in evening 1-2 hours before you start exercising daily.
296076 tn?1371338074 But in the third with all the swelling and the big belly - walking was all I could handle! (It was a workout just to get myself ready in the morning and get to work!! I'd be exhausted by the time I sat down at my desk!) Don't push yourself real hard, just take it easy and do what you can. I think squats are OK during pregnancy - especially if you do them with an exercise ball behind your back against a wall.
Avatar f tn Anyway, I'm going to try waking up at 6 tomorrow to workout, an hour before I start getting ready for work. I hope I don't make any more excuses and that my nausea doesn't stop me. I guess I really needed to see that others are in the same boat, hopefully that'll motivate me to start and stick to it. Let's keep encouraging each other. I'll post again tomorrow to let you know if I actually succeeded in starting the workout.That should hold me accountable!
Avatar n tn This has been happening to me, too! It used to happen in the gym when I was weight lifting but since then I've been working out at home using lighter weights & higher reps but I still have this problem! Pulse is great, I feel good but my hearing just starts fading out of nowhere! I stopped taking all supplements to see if it would help but it makes no difference. I'm ALWAYS well hydrated.
Avatar n tn About three weeks ago, I was working out at the gym. I was doing a chest press, and it started getting difficult, and I suddenly experienced a big pain on the left side of my head. I have no idea why it happened but it may have been due to improper breathing (but I'm not sure at all.) As I came back days after, the pain came back when the weights started getting heavier, so I took about 2 weeks off from working out.
1949068 tn?1449632119 I would say to speak with the staff at your gym just to get another run down of proper form with weights. Weight training (which builds muscle) burns more fat than cardio so I would recommend spending most of your gym time doing weights. You can google specific moves to train your trouble areas and then do some cardio. In my opinion the stair climber is the best cardio machine you can use but it isn't easy (at least not for me) try 15 mins at like level 5.
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm 22 years old, 5'5" and about 145lbs. I have been going to the gym every single day doing my workout plan of 20-30 mins cardio and one focus area (ie: abs, legs, biceps, chest, or back). So every day I'm doing machines for one area plus the cardio (jogging or eliptical). Like I said I've been disciplined and going every day, but I'm getting discouraged because I don't see my body changing..
Avatar f tn How about making it your "JOB". Works for me. Or change the schedule and do it in the late afternoon. Lots of guys work out after work.
362119 tn?1223141536 I asked my doc about it in my pre-pregnancy check-up and he said as long as I don't push myself to work out harder than I did before I was pregnant it is okay. I saw a woman at the gym the other day, she ran 8 miles and looked to be about 6 or 7 months preggo. So, just make sure you don't get overly exhausted or overly hot (this diverts blood away from the baby and to your skin to help cool your body) and you should be fine.
Avatar f tn In any case, just the mere fact that I made it to the gym seems to indicate improvement. Will keep you all posted. Here's a question: When can I color my hair again?
Avatar m tn This is a good program to start and don't be ashamed to ask someone in the gym for advice! You'll be surprised how helpful other gym members are. Use the link below
Avatar m tn i'm an avid gym guy, last wed i went 2 gym and do my routine workout. there's dis HIV+ guy who used the barbell b4 me. i kinda knw him and all this while i m cool with it bcoz i knw hiv doesnt transmit thru inanimate objects. but this particular barbell has rough metal grip surface, i din use glove, so my palm got pricked and scrapped. tiny specks of blood (izzit wat they call micro tear/mirco dermal abrasion?) is visible but no blood oozing out or so.
