1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar n tn Hi, in 17, male and 6ft. I'm in weight training for my HS and I have grown muscle but can't seem to lose weight. I'm like 243 lbs and wanna drop to 220-230, for now. My portions I guess are still kinda big. And love handles and big stomach are an issue. Any tips, healthy foods, drinks, workouts that I should be doing. I'm not in any sports but I like running, so would running just be the best answer. Running, and cardio workouts?
Avatar f tn For losing weight the most effective way is to sprint for about 30seconds then jog for 30seconds and keep this going for about half an hour
Avatar f tn Running fast is better for performance, running far is better for endurance. Just do what you like, both are good exercise, but running fast gets the work done more quickly if time is a factor. For me, I always liked running when I was still able to run and had no desire to get it over with too quickly, but for performance training, sprinting will make you stronger and more athletic overall.
Avatar f tn You have to focus on strength training and functional training that will trigger muslce activation in those sensitive areas such as the belly where you actually have 35 muscles involving abdominals, external obliques or lower back Here you can follow some of my individualized plan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S94yJamB78g My practical recommendation and strategy for physical exercise is: 1.
Avatar m tn Start by a land training program consisting of weight work to build strength and endurance in your legs and especially your core. A functional training program involving body weight exercises, and balance training would be great. Work on cardio using the eliptical or the bike, I would avoid the impact of using the treadmill or excessive running.
Avatar n tn So as far as I now, the more muscle you have, the harder it is to lose the fat, and that's kind of my problem now. As a kid, when I started to take my training seriously, I didn't really lose my fat first. A few years later and I'm pretty muscular (I actually want to lose that, too...), it's really hard for me to lose weight. What kind of exercise should I be doing (that will go along with a diet) that I'll be able to lose weight more effectively?
Avatar f tn What food is beneficial after running? I am losing weight. After running, when can I eat? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and having a difficult time losing weight. During the past 8-9 months, I have not been able to continue my typical exercise regimen due to knee pain and surgery. As a result, I have gained the nine pounds I lost and added 7 more.Approximately two weeks ago, I started to exercise again, managing to workout four days each week, although no change in weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Losing weight is hardly about working out; however, muscle burns more calories than fat. Losing weight is 80% the diet and 20% exercise. You would want to do full body, bodyweight exercises three times a week. (full body, and bodyweight burns more calories because you are using more muscles. you want to choose 10 exercises to workout with for the workout and keep the reps around 12-15.
Avatar n tn Will lifting heavy weights with short reps in a strength training program stunt my growth?
3649999 tn?1347799479 I have been exercising for 3 weeks now for 5 days a week both cardio and weight training. I am 22 years old and weight 165lbs. I have not been losing weight and when i do its 1lb and then i gain it back. I dont eat that healthy as well. I drink water but not enough. I cut out juice and soda and when i do drink juice its been 8oz only. What am i doing wrong? Should i change my eating habits completely.
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to lose weight in a safe way and add strength training to your routine. it will help you not only losing weight but to drop sizes by targeting the right major muscle groups. Articles fro further reading: Healthy weight loss by Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.
2082101 tn?1419965061 Hello there, Firstly I will advise you to eat the right types of foods .All the strength training and running or swimming will not help you manage your shape if you don’t eat the right food. Consider your portion sizes and avoid eating too much food. Maintain a healthy balanced diet. Include aerobic exercises such as running, swimming, cycling, tennis into your week which increases your energy expenditure and makes managing your shape easier.
Avatar f tn also take up a whole body weight training program to build up lean muscle mass, so it shows through once the body fat starts to strip off. Think of it as diet strips the fat & exercise builds the muscle. I recommend hiring a PT that's experienced with building bodies to have you onto a minimum 12week full body program, to have you seeing real results. Michael Matthews books are very informative, I recommend getting one (can download as an Ebook) & reading up.
Avatar f tn t digest well that are gumming up the works rather than easing the works. As Gym states, weight training makes a body have a better shape but doesn't necessarily make it lighter or thinner -- muscles replace fat but they do take up space. I certainly gained weight when I started lifting weights -- most of my life before that was spent playing sports or running that were mostly cardio, but weight lifting made me a bit broader.
Avatar m tn I'm a 44 year old female, 5'4" and weigh 160lbs. I'd like to weight 130lbs. I've been following Weight Watchers for 2 months, very faithfully, writing everything down, staying within my points range and I haven't lost a pound! Up 1lb. one week, down 1lb. the next week. This goes on week after week and I stay the same. I exercise my butt off at least 6 days a week for an hour or more a day. Cardio/weight training and Karate 3x a week.
Avatar f tn Not if you do chest toning exercises while losing weight. You don't want to lose weight without toning up your body as you go, anyways. Doing so would only cause you to have saggy skin and stretch marks all over your body. Make sure you are toning up! Also, spend the extra money to make sure A. you have a really good supportive everyday bra and B. you have a good, supportive exercise bra. As far as exercise goes, I recommend weight training every other day and cardio on the off days.
Avatar f tn I have mild tricuspid, plus MVP and LVH, had pvc's (54,000 daily) and Vtach for years; how long I've had this no clue, but I suspect 5-7 years. I do attribute my heart being "healthy" despite this; was my commitment 4 years ago to exercise daily. I hadn't exercised in so many years it was embarassing, so I started off as slow as I could for a week. Then I added 2 minutes per day, then the next week I upped my speed, vice versa.
Avatar f tn Hello. I'm trying to lose about 18 lbs before august 30th. I don't do much exercise except running every little bit. What's the best exercise to lose weight, lift my but, and get a flat stomach. Pleaseeee help !!
Avatar n tn You can calculate how many calories you burn by using the HealthStatus calories burned estimator. If you are new to running, begin with a walking and running program and gradually build up your minutes running until you can run for the whole 20 minutes. this is the link for the HealthStatus calories burned estimator https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=+HealthStatus+calories+burned+estimator&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-001 Add intensity to your runs to burn more calories.
Avatar n tn , large muscular frame) I began training to increase my level of fitness. My fitness program that consists of running, weight training and other activities. Since then I noticed that ONLY while running I experienced a chest pain on the right side of my chest. The pain is an dull aching pressure localized in approximately a one inch area two inches to the right of my breast bone in line with my nipple.
Avatar f tn You are doing great! There is no way to 'spot reduce' so if you keep running you will drop weight all over even if you are not doing crunches etc. Interval training is a great way to increase the intensity of your exercise without overdoing it. If you are sticking to a low-fat, high protein, moderate carb diet all week you can safely have 1 cheat day a week! If you want to see faster results go with '1 cheat meal' vs '1 cheat day'!
703362 tn?1427766328 I can train for the races that I love to do...and along with that training also comes weight loss, which I also want to accomplish. The winters here are brutal...so running has not happened for me for a few months now (every since the gym membership expired). No worries...the weather is now nice and I can take it outside, where I personally prefer to be. I do not want anyone to think that it is all about just running per se.
Avatar m tn I have hit a weight loss plateau, how do I get past this point without losing hope and motivation
Avatar f tn I am losing weight with proper diet and exercise but when I weigh myself at night I am heavier than I was in the morning. My question is should I stop weight traing till after I lose the weight and just focus on cardio. I am 40 and I hold all my weight in my belly and chest.
Avatar m tn My new addiction will include the Couch to 5k program, the hundred push ups training program and the two hundred sit-ups training program. Someone once told me that if you are going to abandon an addiction, find something else to get addicted to and considering my history, I figured health might be a good addiction. I'll never be buff but at least I won't be a blob anymore.
