Weight training upper body

Common Questions and Answers about Weight training upper body


Avatar f tn You can do the same or If you want you could do upper body on Mon. Wed. and Fri. Then do lower body Tue. Thur. and Sat. First thing before doing any exercise is to warm that muscle by lifting a light weight about 10 times to bring blood to and warm that muscle! As for how much weight to lift it's important to perform the exercise correctly!! (perfect form). Try lifting the maximum weight that you can 1 time but with perfect form!!
Avatar m tn So, recently I decided to buy myself a weight bench and get myself into shape. I assembled it yesterday and did my first workout (upper body only). I didn't push myself too hard because I was just starting off. But last night I woke up in the middle of the night realizing something was off. When I tried to lift my left arm, it would just fall back down. It was weak. The same was happening for my left leg.
1339332 tn?1329857966 This is so very, very unfair. I ate a bowl of oatmeal, a bowl of beef stew, 1 oz. of chicken, a slice of Italian bread with butter and a 1x1.5" piece of apple pie yesterday...and I gain 0.6 lbs.?!? And while I haven't been eating good quality food over the past couple of weeks, I've still been eating 1000-1450 calories/day, mostly at the lower end, and I gain 4.6 lbs---now 5.2 lbs. with yesterday's gain. Why am I even trying? I just have to accept that I'm fat, frumpy and always will be.
Avatar m tn I've read that over 15 pounds is unwise for chiari people to use when weight training, but I used to do much more than that when I was younger and never saw a problem. What are y'all's opinions on this?
Avatar m tn Maybe a sport that utilizes the upper body could be an option. I personally believe you should aim for balance and not just bulk up one area which could lead to muscle imbalances and injuries. A healthy diet is important, especially for growing individuals.
Avatar f tn Recently I start the wii game (Active), and do more weight/resistant training in my daily exercise. my size is being down, especially my problem zone, the lower body, but my weight is going to and stays at 126-127 lbs. I can see my body is being lean and tone, but my weight is going up. What can I do to keep the weight to 115lbs?
Avatar m tn Up until about 4 years ago I would body-rock. Im now 34, from the age of I realy dont know when... since my memory started at the age of say 2 i would body rock. I'd lie on the floor and rock for between a few minutes up to 6 hours or more. I'd rock on the floor and day dream and it seems that the rocking motion would help me day dream and I'd end up in almost in a trance. It completly messed up my education... instead of studying I'd body rock and dream whenever possible....
Avatar n tn I have tried every exercise including weight training. Do I have to accept a wrinkly ugly body in exchange for being a healthy weight. And no I can't afford plastic surgery.
Avatar n tn It will give you all the information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes. What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body.

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 n tn But any weight or resistance training I do on Mon, Wed, Fri to give my body a chance to recover on Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun. That may have something to do with your weight not moving since it looks like you're doing it every day. I know that since we started it, I've definitely toned up and the weight has moved. Ariesoal- I drink water during my workout, I go through a 24oz bottle during my 1 hour session, which I guess (according to my math) is 6oz every fifteen minutes if you average it out.
228463 tn?1216765121 0) lol) However, we could say we would like to lose x amount of pounds...or we could go by body weight % for the contest so it would be fair because the more you have to lose, the more you can lose, you know? (weight watchers goes in 10% weight loss incraments) I would like to lose 35 pounds, maybe 40... And then I would still not be skinny, but normal and within weight range. Can somone tell the trick-or-treaters to come early to get rid of all this candy in my house?
Avatar m tn While high impact cardio clearly seems out of the question at the moment, Would a core workout and/or an upper body weight lifting routine be appropriate at this time?
Avatar f tn You can accomplish this through a total body circuit training program three times a week or you can work upper body one day and lower body the next, six days per week. Muscle weighs more than fat and strength training promotes the development of lean muscle.
Avatar n tn Hello, for about just over 3 weeks now I have had this upper just below the chest bone a pressure,gnawing type pain. Bad thing is that I have had this before over 2 and a half years ago; and about 7 months ago, both just went away. Now its back again and its lasting longer. I went to my regular physican Dr. she took a stool sample and there was no blood in my stool, she put me on Protonix which seems to do nothing.
Avatar m tn The most important thing to knows is that you cannot just lose weight in the one area I would suggest the best thing for you is to do 30 minute cardio to burn the calories during a workout and then 30/40 minute weight training to get your metabolism working faster. Weight training helps your body burn calories even after your workout. Don't forget you need to decrease your calories by eating also you won't be able to lose weight if your calorie intake is higher then your calorie outake.
Avatar n tn say one day you run for 30 minutes (w/ intervals) and do 30 mins of upper body strength exercises. the next time, maybe bike or swim for 30-45 mins and then 30 mins of lower body strength exercises. some days, just focus on strength training while others only strictly on cardio activities. whatever it is, be sure you mix it up. and most importantly, give yourself rest days. it doesn't hurt to have 1-2 rest days in between exercise days. good luck!
Avatar f tn I would say start lifting (heavy weights- meaning 8-10 reps) for total body (upper body and lower body) 3 times a week, and maybe some interval cardio afterwards for 20 minutes.
Avatar n tn To do overall weight training means days spent on upper body and days spent on lower body, and if you're not particularly prone to putting on muscle it means a lot more time put in to get your reps. What you have to decide is, what do you like to do, and is looking a certain way more important to you than doing what you like, which seems to be running, which leaves people thin but not muscular.
Avatar f tn So they did a chest x ray, CT scan of my lungs and upper body and mapped my legs with an ultrasound to make sure there were no issues with DVT, pulmonary embolism etc. All negative. then they released me saying that all is normal. I'm not convinced. I still have upper chest, neck pressure off and on (between my nipples and my adams apple. like i've been in a head stand). Pressure in my arm has subsided and not overly dizzy. My blood pressure seems the same as always..
192055 tn?1263559137 Another symptom is that his penis retracts into his body when his adrenaline gets going. He would literally have to pull it out before it goes all the way in. I have tried looking up these symptoms but only found one thing called "Penis Panic" pretty much saying that its a beliefe where men think their penis is going to retract into their body and disapear. Well, this def is not something in his head, lol... really happens. Anyone else heard of this?
Avatar f tn I currently weigh 55kg, which is the highest weight I have ever been. Since I do look very skinny, having nearly no chest and a very scrawny upper body (waist about 64 cm), people accuse me of having an eating disorder, which is an illness to be taken seriously, however I luckily don't suffer from. I have never been on a diet to loose weight, rather the opposite. I always try to eat as much as I can to gain weight.
Avatar n tn I have noticed that sleeping with my neck raised either to the right or to the left as if i was laying on my side causes me to wake with neck pain during the night, wherein if on my back or front i do not. Typically sleeping in my recliner with my upper body inverted and a roll neck pillow will kill the pain and i will fall back asleep.
Avatar f tn There are a ton of strength exercises that use only your own body weight, so you don't need extra equipment, etc. Make sure you cut out all sodas and junk food. For snacks, have fruit and cut up raw veggies instead of chips and cnady. Drink water or unsweetened tea instead of soda and fruit juices.

Avatar f tn My workout includes the eliptical on high resistance, occassionally the treadmill and sometimes weight training for my arms. I have not been able to lose anymore wieght and am wondering what I should be doing differently. I have been trying to loose around 30 pounds for a while now and have not been able to lose any weight. Any suggestions would be helpful. thank you!
583580 tn?1231139983 I loved the definition I got in my upper body, but always found that if I did leg weights, my legs would get bulky almost instantly. This frustrated me to no end, until I finally worked with a Pilates trainer and she said I was overusing those leg muscles that were getting bulky. I learned different excersises with her that toned for great results. I highly recommend trying Pilates, but if not, is there a trainer you can meet with to work to get the exact results you want?
Avatar m tn Recently, i have the urge to weight lift as my upper body has literally shrunkj. My question is if I restricted my lifting dumb bells only, a max of 30 minutes 3x per week and not to exceed 25 pounds, would i be putting my self at any risk? I speed walk every day for an hours and i have no other restrictions. I would like to build up some upper body strength.
Avatar f tn I started training in March with a goal set to do a competition in September. Throughout all the training and eating I didnt lose any weight. I did lose inches but zero pounds. Sad to say I didn't feel I was completely ready so i didn't compete. I asked my dr about this and he said I must not be following my diet and pretty much didn't believe what I was saying. My question is this: how can I be so active, disciplined, and still not lose one pound.
