Avatar f tn I would recommend doing a full body weight training at lease 3 to 4 days a week with cardiovascular training at the beginning or end to maximize your training. The reason that I say that is because wieght training will have a lasting calorie burn 36-42 HOURS while cardio just 2 hours. This is why you must use weights. Now your backside, different story. I would recommend that you would start with lighter sets until your body gets accustom.
Avatar n tn You're doing a series of exercises one after another in a circuit without taking any breaks in between the exercises. You will do both weight training exercises such as pushups, situps and squats, and aerobic exercises such as jumping jacks, jumping rope and burpees. Each exercise is done for a set amount of time, I suggest 30 seconds, or a set amount of repetitions. After you have performed the full circuit, take a short break to recover and drink water, then do the circuit again.
Avatar f tn Work all of your major muscle groups increasing ressitance and allowing long periods of rest like 10 repetitions and 2 minutes rest for those heavy loads. Otherwise you should body weight exercises that can improve your resistance training although with this type of training you need to be careful since your heart needs more calorie burning so i will suggest to add whole body movements and add lengthy resting periods of time.

Avatar n tn If you want to do some exercise then you may choose to do low intensity weight training to maintain your body shape for that time. You are also try some and NSAID painkiller like Advil before exercise. Keep yourself well hydrated and decrease the number of repetitions for a while. Take rest between exercises. You may apply some ice to the back of scalp and neck. I hope this helps, take care.
Avatar f tn 5 grams per pound of body weight in carbohydrates in your post strength training meal 1 piece of fruit in your first meal of the day on cardio days 10-12 times your body weight in calories (if you have a higher body fat, use the lower number), or for a more accurate calorie intake, I’d suggest you take a look at the BodyMedia FIT Calorie Tracking Armband Eat green veggies or other low carb, high fiber veggies at every meal (see below for examples) Fill the rest of your calories with healthy fats

Avatar f tn Metabolism converts the fuel in the food we eat into the energy needed to power everything we do, from moving to thinking to growing. If you want to lose weight The safest amount of weight you can lose is anything from .5 to 2 lbs a week. However at 14 your body is going through changes and you want to follow a healthy and structured exercise program monitored by your doctor that will help you lose some pounds while toning.
Avatar f tn The important thing to remember is that weight-bearing exercise is what you should be doing. Now please don't confuse weight-bearing with weight lifting. Weight-bearing exercise can be as simple as walking since your body is working against gravity. For this reason I always recommend simple weight-bearing activities such as walking, climbing stairs and standing up from a chair without using your arms to assist you.
Avatar f tn Swimming is awesome excersize! Honestly you can't spot-burn fat on your body. When it comes to cardio, as you lose weight you'll lose it all around, not just in one specific area. My advice is to keep at it swimming wise, swim VIGOROUSLY and you should be all set.
Avatar f tn Eating every three to four hours prevents dips in blood sugar levels that can trigger hunger and overeating. Do full-body strength training workouts to develop lean muscle mass and increase metabolism. Perform exercises that recruit every large muscle group such as lat pulldowns, biceps curls, triceps press, overhead shoulder press, lunges and push-ups. Execute each exercise for three sets of 15 repetitions.
Avatar f tn After these body-weight exercises become manageable for 12 repetitions, add weight in the form of dumbbells or resistance bands. Aim to be more active all day long. Make sure you get the OK from your doctor!!
Avatar n tn I am currently breastfeeding and was wondering if anyone could give me any ideas on what kind of exercises I can do to lose weight while on maternity leave at home?
Avatar f tn use light weights and lots of repetitions to improve your muscular endurance. The more muscular endurance the less body fat and the more toned you will look.
Avatar f tn You don't have to lift heavy weights to lose weight or to shape your bodyp. If you aren't experienced in strength training I'd suggest you join a gym that has a full menu of exercise equipment like cardio machines (doing the same form of exercise will get boring and cause your muscles to adapt to that one form of exercise and eventually you will see less and less progress), freevweights, strength, and core equipment.
Avatar f tn I'm a little over 14 and I have really big thighs, is there anyway exercises I can do to help tone my thighs? Or anyone I can loose the weight in them?
Avatar f tn Don't be afraid to up your weights gradually (if you can do 2 sets of 12 repetitions on an exercise, you need to move to a higher weight); Women don't get huge muscles from weight lifting unless they are using super heavy weights or steroids. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, which leads to more calories burned with every activity. If possible invest in a session with a trainer or nutritionist to make sure you are getting a well rounded workout and diet.
Avatar n tn I have stopped my weight gain by drastically changing my eating habits and lifting light weights while doing aerobic type exercises, but I still haven't lost the weight I had already put on. Now that I have been exercising regularly for a couple of months and trying to eat light snacks 7 or 8 times a day, I am not craving sweets or carbs the way I was before. For me, it seems more important to build some muscle in the arms, shoulders, abdomen and legs, than to spend hours a day walking.
Avatar m tn If you want to build up your stamina and endurance while doing aerobics of any kind then more repetitions and light exercises are good. All the exercises are nearly equally good like running, jogging, skipping, jumping or swimming. All the best. If you want to build muscle strength without getting massive size then you have two strengthen your muscles during some weight training. Remember to use lightweight and more repetitions rather than heavyweight and fewer repetitions.
Avatar f tn The most effective method of stimulating muscle growth in your butt is by training your lower body with compound exercises. Compound exercises are multi-joint and multiple muscle group exercises. Because compound exercises work large muscle groups throughout your entire body, they are better at stimulating muscle growth.
Avatar n tn Walking, swimming and water aerobics are healthy low-impact exercises. Strength training, perform one to two sets of 10 to 15 repetitions of weight bearing exercises two to three times a week. If you don't have dumb bells then use resistance bands or machines. You can perform pushups against a wall and squats by sitting in a chair and then standing. You could join a yoga class.
Avatar f tn The arm ergometer is a machine that allows you to use your arms in place of your legs to push the pedals of a bicycle. Another option is trying an upper body circuit training program, using high repetitions and low loads, and short rest breaks between exercises. Using upper body machines or free weight exercises that work your latissimus dorsi, deltoids, pectorals, biceps, triceps and rhomboids will get your heart pumping.
Avatar n tn I agree with Jaquta that lower weight, higher repetitions, as well as slower lifting, may help make your weight lifting more productive. Good luck!
Avatar f tn What are you doing now for exercise? Weight training is a great way to loose weight and build muscle - use no higher than 5 lbs if you're just starting out and 15 repetitions with 3-5 sets of each exercise like bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, and push ups. For tummy try core strengthening exercises rather than straight sit ups. Your own body is the best resistance for you right now! Try doing push ups before bed and when you wake up :-) good luck!
Avatar f tn Perform strength-training exercises with a moderate resistance for two to three sets of eight to 12 repetitions, focusing on the big muscle groups like your chest, back and legs. This should only take about 30 minutes. Follow it up with a 1-2 mile cardio to get your blood flowing. Lift with free weight. Learn one compound exercise per week. Good lifts include squats, deadlifts, chinups, rows, pushups, bench presses and overhead presses.
