Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while lifting weights


Avatar f tn I go to the gym everday...and i am currently 6 weeks lifting moderate to heavy weight. I definitely dont over do it, but i work up a good sweat. Does anyone do crossfit or lift weights?
Avatar m tn Did this just start happening, while lifting the same weights and reps as before? If yes, that may indicate something, if the irregular HB started after you went to a new lift stress, it may be adrenaline or some other stress reaction. Or, you are overdoing it. Just a guess, I don't lift weights for exercise and I my irregular HBs are continuous, permanent.

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 m tn , 44 yo male. This weight loss was relatively easy, as I stopped lifting heavy weights and started counting calories. A Dr. told me weight lifting was bad for my heart, another one said is okay. I have started back to lifting light weights. The decreased weight hopefully has taken some strain off of my heart. It will be tough to lose the next 14. Sounds like you may be ready for some lifestyle changes. Losing some weight may help with taking some strain off of your heart.
Avatar f tn so far, but at times my weight loss slows down. I am working out and lifting weights. Am i building muscle? After a month I found I lost some weight.
Avatar f tn Be very careful about lifting weights, that can be dangerous for the pregnancy, but if you're already a jogger it won't hurt you si long as you don't over exert yourself. Light exercise is always recommended during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn Hi, my name is Ben and i would like to know if weight lifting stunts growth or not? And why? Also i would like to know if anyone knows if there are ways how one can grow taller ?
Avatar n tn but does it mean that weight lifting would stop the gain of height??
631359 tn?1222374022 Most experts recommend 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week, along with two or three days of weight-bearing, resistance exercise (such as weight lifting). This is sufficient to achieve satisfying results. You can exercise daily or on alternate days, depending on the availability of time. Walking is one of the simplest aerobic exercises. You can vary the intensity to match your fitness level.
Avatar m tn I have been lifting weights pretty heavy for the past yr and 1/2. My cardiologist told me to stop lifting heavy weights but i can still lift lightly. It kills me to stop lifting, for once in my life i feel great and look pretty healthy. I guess my question is if l still lift weights what is lifting light? how do i know what is over doing it? Should i do light weight more reps. I would still like to achieve and maintain a good physique without causing more harm than i already have.
Avatar f tn You can try doing some weights or resistance band exercises, but if you're losing weight, that might just be something you will have to put up with. Some of just get saggy skin when we lose weight. Check out YouTube for upper body exercises using weights.
Avatar m tn Do your mean lifting weights as in weight lifting the sport, or lifting weights as in bodybuilding, I cant think of a reason that bodybuilding should stunt your growth, but that you may just a small build, in that case you may find it hard to build your weight up, and weight lifting could stop you growing by the amount of weights that you lift over your head.
Avatar m tn I live in United States and as far as monitoring my status it has been done so every 6 months for the last 7 years and my ALT and AST are always on the very lower range and liver functions tests are all normal. Unfortunately, Fibroscan is not available in my area, but have been getting ultrasound and CT Scan of the liver and those tests are always within normal range, eventhough they are not a good test for liver damage.
Avatar m tn Walk 5 miles every week and work out at the gym with weights. The problem is that I am not losing any weight in the last two weeks. I am keeping my calorie intake around 1200 to 1500 calories daily. I understand that I may be putting on muscle but I am also getting discouraged with not losing weight. When can I expect to see the pounds start to drop off?
Avatar m tn I have started a complete lifestyle changing initiative. I am currently 1 1/2 months into my new diet and exercise regiment. I weigh about 287lbs (my goal is approximately 215lbs mostly muscle) at the moment after losing about 25lbs last month. I do cardio 6 days a week for 45 mins each time. I alternate my cardio workouts between the elliptical, the treadmill, and I use the bike and stairmaster seldomly. I am noticing great weight loss with this routine.
Avatar m tn I have been experiencing PVCs and PACs for about a year. I have passed monitor and stress tests. It appears that my PVC and PACs increase in frequency if I lift weights, although it has taken me a while to correlate the weights and the PVC/PACs. I do not experience any pain in my chest. I'd like to resume weight lifting, but everytime I do my PVC/PACs increase.
Avatar m tn but the last 6 weeks of 2013 I started doing 40 45 mins cardio along with lifting weights. I could see a huge change in my legs and lower belly. I then went on vacation for 10 days. Went back to the gym, started the same workout I had done at the end of the year. Usually my chest area gets smaller...when I drop a few lbs. I guess that is how I tell if I'm losing weight.
Avatar n tn Is anyon weight lifting during their pregnancy i do alot of squats dead lifts and hugg intensity exercises. My doctor said it was alright but other s ob say otherwise..
Avatar n tn I have some quesions about lifting weights. I am 24 years old and I never lifted weights until now. 1. Is it safe to lift free weights? 2. Shoud I lift everday or have some rest time? 3. What are some serious injuries that occur? 4. Can you become paralyzed from lifting weights(I heard that from a friend)? 5. How much should I lift overall? 6.
Avatar n tn Hi You should be very careful when lifting weights as any kind of carelessness can result in injury. While lifting weights, you must be in full control of the weights as well as your body. Missing warming up exercises, lifting too heavy weights, causing jerky movements, improper holding of weights and forgetting to stretch or cool-down after your workout can result in injury. You should hold the weights very lightly and keep your thumbs on the same side as the rest of your fingers.
Avatar f tn Lol @Vikki_Fitz1 I'm going to try the weights again I was lifting but only 1 pound weights most likely why I wasn't seeing results.
Avatar f tn t go to a gym, just did at home weights like shoulder press, chest press, bicep curl with 8lb weights and deadlift, calf raises with 12 lb weights. Combining diet with weight lifting/putting on muscle will definitely help speed up weight loss, and you don't need to do a lot of weight lifting either, just 10-15 minutes a couple times a week helps. (I know any kind of exercise might be hard when you are feeling low energy, but if you are trying to shed weight this definitely helps).
Avatar m tn After I lift weights I get sick, during intense lifting I can feel getting sick, like a cold coming on. I have lifted weights since 18 and I am 24. This started two years ago. Also 2 years ago I was under the assumption I contracted an STD due to my genitals hurting like crazy 3 days after unprotected sex.
