Common Questions and Answers about Workout for women at the gym


Avatar f tn Strength training is beneficial because it increases lean muscle, which in turn will speed up your metabolic rate and support a healthy body, and it helps to build bone density. A full-body workout regimen for beginners includes the chest press, shoulder press, back rows, leg press, leg extensions, leg curls and crunches. Being a beginner perform one set of eight to 12 reps of each exercise. Take your time and use a light weight until you’re comfortable with the technique of each exercise.
Avatar n tn When you lift, your muscles need time to recover. You have to feed them the proper nutrients for them to grow. You also must get adequate rest since muscle growth occurs while you sleep. For the workouts, concentrate on 2-3 muscle groups each day. Start your workout with the largest muscle group you are working out. Then work your way to the smallest muscle group.
850661 tn?1245669656 Hi ive been a member at gym for a year now and recently found out im preggies..Im now nervous about what type of excersises to do coz i was doing weightloss.If you gym please help me with what type of workouts you do.
Avatar f tn Ashley, I joined a gym (YMCA) and it made me pack on the pounds, last year. Interestingly, my brother had the same exact experience. He was also working out at at gym and he lost his attractive physique. I am a healthy, slim weight to begin with. But I joined the gym to firm up and feel better with more energy, and more muscle definition. Let me tell you, I looked like hell after going to that gym 4x weekly. I looked like a big ugly thick brick.
242143 tn?1215473908 i was also wondering the same thing. last month i went to the gym but did not do a full workout like i usually do and tried not to do any equipment that would put strain on me.
362119 tn?1223141536 I have heard that pregnant women are not supposed to do a lot of leg exercises to try and build muscle (such as squats), as the more muscle accumulated in the hip/pelvic region can make for a more difficult birth..... Doing a workout routine (such as aerobics) which may involve the squatting motion and leg exercises is ok - just don't do it to build up your muscle like a body builder would.
Avatar f tn I'm 30+ weeks and I go to the gym 3 times a week and just walk on the treadmill for 1 hour.
296076 tn?1371338074 (check out the resource center and exercise demos at We joined the YMCA in January and I signed up for their prenatal fitness class. Twice a week and I love it. Then I exercise once or twice more a week whenever I can. Unfortunately my backside seems to be as large as my belly now. My mobility is not very good, so my exercise level is nowhere near were it was pre-pregnant. However, I'm doing my best and trying not to get discouraged.
3195521 tn?1348154733 What I do I go on YouTube and and look for workouts for pregnant women and do some of that I really like them...
Avatar m tn Are you projecting this in the future? I'm guessing you don't have a partner yet, and are musing on this in the far future as a possibility. I guess if it's a big issue for you to have a thin wife, choose skinny girls to date.
Avatar n tn I recently just started going to a 24 hour fittness gym and am working with a personal trainer. about 2 days ago i was running on the eliptical machine at a speed of about 110 rpm, which my trainer told me to do. i was going for about 1-2 minutes before i was feeling dizzy. He tested my heart rate and its was over 200 (about 215) and my heart beat was irregular. we brought my heartrate down, but it was still irregular.
Avatar f tn The six week post is basically just to make sure that you are healing in the right direction. I've heard of women who were in the gym the next morning. It will probably depend on what your doc says and since they are miliitary docs, they will probably allow it.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn I eat lots of protein, lean meats, low carbs, decent amount of fat and I workout at the gym and run 3-5 times a week. Im super happy in my life and work and Im surrounded by awesome people. What the hell is wrong with me. At first I was like yay now I can focus on other stuff in my life other than my penis, but now Im just worried. Whats it all about...
Avatar f tn (I always went to the gym religiously in the mornkng) well I slept thru it!! And woke up to pounding on our front door... my workout mates were worried!! So I see they called and text me so J call them and say I will be down.. Let me get decent. So I grab the pee stick and look at it while I am flying down the stairs to see them and I almost slid down the stairs on my arse. Haha!! It was positive. So I took 2 more.. Both positive.
Avatar f tn The only med I take is the rat poison for the gene factors. I go to the gym Mon.- Fri. I do cardio every day at the gym 3 days anaerobic and 2 days aerobic. Strength training I do on Mon,Wed, and Fri.
132578 tn?1189759437 I dont know if I just remember the posts from people that had to scrape and crawl across , many actually not making it across at all , more than the posts from members that that walked across , did the dance and spiked the ball. I really dont know how I would search the archives for a question like this and I'm really hoping some of you members that have been here a while might have either personal or anecdotal knowledge of the ratio .
Avatar m tn Do you ever get headaches at night from all the squinting and looking at (searching for) your spots? The whole things makes me so depressed sometimes.
Avatar n tn i am in 2ww and walking 2 miles a day.. It is something to take my mind off of it.. On the days i dont walk, i go to the gym and do the elliptical for a half hour.. GOOD LUCK and baby dust for us!!
Avatar n tn I thought i should mention that the episodes mainly happen at night. Is this the case for anybody else? Its like my body has to get rid of whatever its not agreeing (i.e. food/drink) with but even after going to the bathroom, it takes me about 2 hours to resume to normal, by this time, I'm exhausted and I have had heart palpatations. I do not drink much caffeine and i am thinking of cutting it out completely, i do not smoke and I have never taken drugs.
870652 tn?1260323036 So if it makes it harder for older women, why would she do this? She doesn't want me to take it because of the increased risk of multiples, but why give it at all if it doesn't work? I had even asked for something else because I've been reading about all of the negative side effects. Now I'm upset.
921323 tn?1268679412 But as a result of this visual similarity, I’ve found that a good number of the posted comments were written in defense of this “miracle” diet, which combines supplementation with a hormone first detected in the urine of pregnant women (yep) and...a daily 500 calorie restriction. So I thought it was a good idea to readdress the issue, with a renewed focus on HCG this time. Drum roll please... I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons.
187316 tn?1386360282 Went the whole day without bleeding and then the same thing happened at the gym again. That night when I went home there was pink and then red blood. Again put in a tampon. Woke up this morning and the tampon had barely anything on it again (light flow tampon not regular or heavy) but what I did have was red and brown and only on one side. What is going on?
16702 tn?1234094245 (All that poly/nylon stuff is bad for you) Maybe you could a cap that is designed to pull the sweat away from you like some baseball/workout caps do. I have one I used to wear to the gym and it works. I also get a really sensitive scalp and that sems to have a pattern only I haven't remembered to write them down to figure it out and of course I can't remember a thing. Have you had any scalp sensitivity when you wash your hair/scalp? Good Luck, Jan.
Avatar m tn As you can see by the hundreds of comments, the Flip-Turn Sinus Flush works extremely well for chronic bacterial infections of the upper sinuses, replacing antibiotics and surgery in most instances. For infections of the lower sinuses, I recommend the Neilmed Sinus Rinse--available at most pharmacies--as it requires less effort and risk.
172023 tn?1334675884 Taking a dance class tomorrow. I really enjoy the gym I go to, and all the different things they offer. Never boring!
Avatar n tn I took this product during the course of my pill run, as I knew the constant bombardment of tylenol couldn't be good for the liver.
393685 tn?1425816122 I tried everything I could think of for chronic constipation, none of the traditional paths work for women with POP-my POP has been fixed but the IBS issues will probably always be there because of high stress schedule. So many symptoms/health issues overlap; it is so difficult to do Kegels properly when you are "full of poop". (We should keep doing them anyway, when the poop clears the contraction is functional!
