Avatar f tn However, 6 months after the surgery I still can't seem to loose the weight. I weight train 4-5days a week, do a little cardio and diet like crazy. Will this weight ever come off?
Avatar m tn My question is how do I know if I'm strong enough for my height and weight. Someone told me I should be able to bench press my own weight, which I honestly haven't done yet. I can bench press about 100 to 110. I also work out 2-3 times a week with weights or wrestling and I eat about 2,300 calories a day.I also take a multi-vitamin. I have plenty of energy, but I don't seem to lose or gain weight. My body seems to like 155 lbs.
Avatar n tn Now, I understand so far that it is the heart causing the problems not the lungs. I want to know #1 what is concidered normal size for right and left atriums? I am 225 and 5'7" big boned as my mom would say. I am starting to retain fluid at a much rapid rate now. This is scaring me even more. The cardiologist refused to do my stress test. #2 what is most likely the "cure" for my problem? I also forgot that I had taken phen-phan years ago. Is my only option for treatment surgery?
Avatar m tn Imagine what you feel like when you're straining as you do your once-in-a-blue-moon max bench press. DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE. Your blood pressure skyrockets when you do that, which obviously is bad. Instead, if you insist on lifting, breathe continuously and never strain with a closed glottis. I used to be a big lifter but in recent times I have shifted to lifting pretty light/moderate weights ... I inhale when I lift and exhale when I release.
Avatar f tn (Ex, supersetting lunges with bench press with elbows close to body; super-setting step-ups with seated rows, again elbows close to body; doing a circuit of neutral military presses, plank pose, and neutral grip lat pull-downs). You may begin with lighter weights (say, 12 reps per set) but after a couple months, you'll be able to get heavier (6 rep sets).
Avatar f tn Weight loss is burning more calories than you consume, and exercise helps speed up your metabolism, so you can burn more calories even while resting. Obese men can lose weight by exercising, which will also reduce the risk of many diseases and conditions. Exercise strengthens the cardiovascular system, diminishing your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. A regular workout routine can also help you have more energy, tone up and feel good.
1415174 tn?1453246703 Last time it took 3 weeks to recover when I didn't do anything and 4 months to get back to almost normal weight lifting. Not quite as heavy as I was but close. The Osteopath said it was a rib strain because it hurt to touch. I always stretch for an hour before any work out. I didn't swing the kettle bell just did a deadlift with it. So if it was an injury from the work out it may be from dragging a heavy box to use for the workout or having trouble getting the kettle bell off the rack.
Avatar f tn Lying flat on your back on a bench, holding a dumbbell in each hand so your palms next are to your pecs and are facing your head (as opposed to normal bench press, in which your palms are facing your feet). Push the dumbbells straight upwards, but twist them inwards, so at the top of the exercise, your palms have rotated and are now in the normal bench position (facing your feet). Rotate them while bringing the dumbbells back down, so you are in the same position you started in.
Avatar n tn Hello, There are no exercises which aim at losing fat from a particular spot of the body.Most of the exercises aim at whole body toning. You can start with moderate exercises like walking or jogging and then gradually move on to push ups,bench pressing and biceps and triceps exercises. Also eat healthy and take adequate amount of fluids.Junk food is a strict no no.Increase the amount of protein in your diets rather than the fat intake. Hope it helps.
1415174 tn?1453246703 Thanks, I am thin but I don't t think that thin. 5'7" weight 126 lbs. I have about 19% body fat due to weight lifting. You would think the weight lifting would help. I did read that heavier women have less problems. My 80 year old nieghbor only has osteopenia. She has taken estrogen replacement for years though but is over weight. But my friend who is thin and older than me (60's) has osteopenia not osteoporosis. So I didn't know what to do. I don't want to get fat to gain bone.
530544 tn?1212923574 The serratus anterior muscle is used strongly in doing bench press or press ups, in particular the last 5 to 10 degrees of motion Exercises for the serratus anterior: Press ups against a wall Stand just over an arms length away from a wall. Lean into the wall, bend the arms and push away. Repeat 10 times. Aim for 3 sets of 10 repetitions. To make it harder perform more repetitions each set and / or stand further away from the wall.
Avatar m tn I enjoy weight training as it helps a lot with my depression, but I have noticed that when my heart rate and blood pressure rise while weight training that I see pulsing shapes (floaters maybe?) in my left eye in time with my heartbeat. Especially if I'm lying prone (bench press etc.). Is this something to be concerned about and should I lessen the intensity at the gym? Or is it OK to ignore this as it's normal with PVD? I'm worried I could aggrevate the condition.
Avatar n tn Before this medication, I was very active, worked out daily, played tennis etc, now I can barely force myself through a workout. My weight training (amout of weight I bench press has dropped from 250 down to about 200 and barely this. I find I am even slurring my words during the day I am so tired. Is this normal? I try to push through it but cannot. I am 57 years old, no other heart issues, tests have all been perfect..
Avatar n tn I need to get back in the gym and start pounding away. I realize that at my age (35) I probably won't be able to bench press 400 pounds again like I did when I was 25. Sorry I'm rambling, I guess my point is that this has taken a toll on my body as well as my mind.
Avatar n tn If this is a fat realted issue instead then you might want to do some bench press with low weight at high reps this will help to tone the the muscles and burn fat without making them larger.
362971 tn?1201990634 I remember you having just finished treatment when I first found this forum, and though your treatment had ended, you still reached out to help others like myself. I'm so pleased that you continue to share encouragement.... what wonderful news that your SVR is long term, and great to hear that things do get better and better. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn I find exercises that involve the triceps quite painful in my left elbow and whenever I bench press heavy weight I can feel a pain in my elbow almost as if the bones in the lower half of my arm are pressing down on and trapping a nerve. I'm turning to you guys hoping that someone has a solution to my problem. My elbow does not look normal (pictures attached) and this causes me to always wear long-sleeved shirts and have general social anxiety.
Avatar n tn Weaker legs seem to increase with longer sitting periods and increased stress. My bench has gone down (215 to 175) but I also have not worked out as much. Other weight barometers are normal. (Bicep curl, Tricep, ie. Muscle tone seems normal) Weight is normal, has not changed. Eating has not changed. Doctors have given no diagnosis, curious as to what you think. So far I am on alpralozam, sometimes it helps to relax me, but symptoms stay.
Avatar m tn I've been extremely active between the ages of 17-24, working out and following a strict diet. Recently, however, I gained weight due to being married and being unable to go thr gym as often as I used to. As a result, i decided to go back to thr gym last week and after doing an hour of low-impact cardio and weight lifting, the next few days I noticed I had muscle spasms across my upper abdomen.
Avatar m tn | i also have trouble when doing bicep curls etc. just to clarify, whenever i do a bench press, when i bring the bar back down towards my chest, i notice that my left pec isnt stretching, if at all, as much as my right one, thus giving me the reason to believe as this is why my left pec is smaller, and more to the left, than my right one. also, i feel the pressure in my left shoulder, yet i feel the pressure in my chest on my right side.
Avatar m tn Your vital statistics of workouts are pretty good! Do not worry as your weight gain may be due to muscle, you would need to calculate the amount of muscle and fat and the present proportions in your body. At 5 feet 9 inches with a weight of 150 pounds you are in a normal BMI of 22. Take care!
Avatar n tn I have also had the frustration of not being able to lose weight like other people. Basically running 40km a week doesn't do a thing for me. I can't focus on a page for long periods making reading very tiring. I've also had jittery nerves, can't speak when I want, don't handle stress very well sometimes... sometimes...Though I'm fit but have to watch what I eat I've felt my whole life that things are just too hard.
Avatar f tn First, about 3 yrs ago I started getting tingling hands, fasciculations, and some odd buzzing feelinggs. I saw a neurologist- normal exam, normal brain mri, normal bloodwork, normal EMG (needles was lower ext focused), normal autonomic test, etc. They felt it was benign.

Avatar f tn 2) I do feel a little shakier at times when lifting weights but I can't say that my strength is awful...not sure if this is a sign? I'm not in college anymore and do feel old, but still bench press 225 lbs 10 times and squat a similar amount. No real major weakness, just weird buzzy tremoring afterwards sometimes, achiness that seems a little odd at times. 3)Can being a weight lifter effect an EMG? Even if I didn't lift for a week before the test...

After dealing w/ this for sometime, i started experiencing some muscle aches in the calves along w/ the same symptoms and some odd neuorologcal symptoms- more mri's normal of spine, normal lumbar puncture, normal blood work.

Avatar n tn deep soft tissue massage, just after heavy bench press/chest work, and in conjunction with ovulation and my menses. Some months are better than others. In terms of pain, it can range from a dull soreness to sharp pain when pushed on or heavily palpated. Initially saw a GYN out-of-town at my duty station (work for the government) who felt that both breasts were fibrocystic. Saw my own GYN today (back home), and had her examine the breasts even though I am approx.
Avatar m tn I workout 3 times a week for 1 hr with weight lifting/cardio ( I do heavy weights--225lbs bench press for 10 reps 3 sets and I can jog a 10 min mile). I also do krav maga twice a week for an hour which is quite strenuous. My resting o2 sat is 98% and pulse of 54. The only symptoms I have are during allergy season.
