583580 tn?1231136383 I do cardio and I try to lift weights but theres my problem. Everytime I start a lifting program even though its low weight more reps I gain mass. This frustrates me cause it doesnt go away. I dont lose inches or weight I get bigger. Whenever this happens I stop lifting cause I dont want to get bigger. I know they say that a woman cant get bigger because she just doesnt produce the same hormones as a man but why would I be gaining mass if this were so.
Avatar f tn 15-20 reps is more for a burn and tone type exercise but I recommend heavier weight, maybe wear a backpack with cans of soup or something for extra weight and try and get 10-12 rep range with no more than 30-45 seconds of rest.
Avatar f tn Start a sensible weight-lifting program. This is how to naturally increase your testosterone level. You want to start weight lifting with small weights. You don't want to start big because the object is to slowly build the big muscles and the small stabilizer muscles correctly from the start, learning correct form. That's how you get strong and avoid injury. You don't even need weights; you can use your own body weight. Youtube has videos that can get you started.

Avatar m tn I have been battling with low testosterone for a few years and trying to address it through natural means. Lost 20 lbs body fat (Now 5'08" 156 lbs 13 % BF), added heavy weight lifting in 3x weekly, eat a low carb high vegetable intake diet with more than adequate fat content, etc. Sadly doesnt seem to be helping.

Avatar m tn I'm a 20 year old guy, and I've been working out and eating right for about 10 months, and I've gotten some very satisfactory results. However, even though I've gained muscle mass and lost a considerable amount of body fat, there still seems to have been no change in my "man boobs". This is very frustrating and embarrassing. I have and continue to do everything I can to get rid of my chest fat but it won't go away.
Avatar m tn Hi Joey, odd name for a mum, he can start by doing weight lifting, and lots of heavy work outs, for him the safest thing for his age would be Tribulus as its just a herb and would take around 8 weeks to get to full power. But just get lifting weights in a gym, and he or you need to tell his trainer why and what its for, and let them work on him.

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.
Avatar f tn First of all I would say it depends on how far u are and not only That but also whether or not u were lifting heavy before pregnancy. It's easy to strain yourself when lifting specially because your balance isn't as good. I'm 120 pounds pretty petite if I lift 50 pounds that's Def not safe lol.

Avatar n tn Hi Winty, you could raise your testosterone by weight lifting, get down the gym and pump some iron, you can google that and see what type of exercises are best, or you could try some tribulus, its good for raising testosterone, I take it for my ED recovery, if you can get some in herbal form, make a big pot of green tea and tribulus, let it steep over night and drink through the next day, I di it once a week, and take it with ginger lemon and honey, and I'm also on capsules twice daily.
Avatar f tn Hi Fate, This could be low testosterone, but tests will back this up, so get out of the house get to a gym do some weight lifting, by doing this its a natural way to get your testosterone back up, if you dont wont to lift weights try the caveman system for better health, another way to get your testosterone back up, get out do some walking and swimming, all good for you, get off any fast foods and junk foods, these will kill your testosterone, its the high sugars and salt, kills testosterone and

Avatar m tn however, beginning in august, i started to lose weight. i was not lifting very much, but i was playing soccer and still active. when wrestling season began weighed 170 pounds and dropped about 10 to make 160. however, every week would be a battle because i would gain back 8 or so and have to lose it all. once that season ended, i found myself weighing 164, then 162, then 159, and finally as low as 156. this prompted a trip to the doctor, and blood test, revealing low TSH.
Avatar m tn I know that my testosterone is low for my age. I plan on losing excess weight and see what happens from there. I know losing weight will lower my estradiol and raise my testosterone, but how much of a difference will it make? I would be willing to try TRT but I am scared of infertility.
Avatar f tn t lift more than half my weight. I worked in dog grooming so I was always lifting dogs up into tubs and what not.
Avatar f tn The main reasons I have heard for a prohibition on lifting is that your cartilage is softening with pregnancy and you could pull something out of alignment more easily. If you have been lifting this amount of weight for some time, your body is probably used to it. But if this amount of lifting is new for you, I would think about trying to find a different job that does not require you to lift an adult's full weight. How much of her weight do you think you lift?
