Workouts by muscle group

Common Questions and Answers about Workouts by muscle group


Avatar f tn Anaerobic workouts trigger the release of a group of hormones that promote muscle growth and fat oxidation. They are intense and shouldn't be done on consecutive days. I know plenty fitness professionals that shouldn't be trainers! I'm not saying you're not good!
Avatar n tn my question has to do with all the muscle mass i've lost or yet to lose.when does that start to regenerate back to my old self?my good thoughts go to all.
Avatar n tn I started at 60mg a day and then went to 100mg per day, back to 60, then 60 every other day because of muscle weakness caused by the prednisone. The every other day regiment caused my disease (Myasthenia Gravis) to flare, so now I am on 30 mg every day. While on every other day, my face returned to a somewhat normal shape. I have been back on the 30mg per day and now my face is larger than ever.
Avatar n tn I have curvature of the spine (scoliosis) and my theroy is that later in the day as my muscles tire on the left in back near the spine, it creates a fatigued muscle group and the ones in the front simply cramp up. I have even grabbed the area, squeezing it, massaging it to release. It is very annoying and unpleasant. It has been a few months now and happens several times an hour.
1554262 tn?1374243601 I too have these symptoms. They occur infrequently and cant pin down why or how they arise. However, drinking cold drink relieves it and without it it gets progressively worse, hence the panic to get water down asap. i can feel the liquid go down and somehow relieve the pain almost as quickly as it arrived. As sense of anxiety and being overwhelmed persists for a while though. I havnt yet discussed with a doctor and would be interested to learn of others diagnosis.
Avatar n tn About your settlement, it is not necessarily true that you will get more money by going to court - it's a case by case thing. IF you do decide to go to court, your attorney will most likely charge you a greater percentage than he is right now. I hired my attorney asking if he would take my case for 28% (attorney fees are always negotiable)...he said, Yes, but if we go to court (which is highly unlikely) he will have to charge me 40%. Just something for u to think bout.
Avatar n tn The muscle symptoms described here can be caused by various things. One thing you may want to consider is the possibility of an auto-immune reaction to an underlying infection. I'm a 42-year-old male who's otherwise healthy. Several years ago, I had an intestinal infection that went on for a number of months until I finally saw a doctor and was treated. Bowel symptoms included alternating diarrhea and constipation.
Avatar n tn You use smaller muscle groups while working out the larger ones, so working the smaller first will cause your large muscle group workouts to be less effective. For example: if working out your back muscles and arms during a day, do your rows and pulldowns Before you do biceps. There's fairly good support for working out each muscle group twice a week.
Avatar m tn Because the resveratrol converted the animals’ excess white fat into calorie-burning beige fat, the resveratrol group was 40 percent less likely to become obese than the control group. The best way to boost your consumption of polyphenol compounds is by directly increasing fruit consumption, as per research author, Min Du. Though all fruits contain the compound, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes and apples are the best sources.
10840278 tn?1424819683 The evening group of men reduced body fat by 4 percent. In comparison, the morning weight training group experienced no body fat changes at all. Researchers in the study were unable to conclude why the evening workouts were more effective. During sleep, your body repairs and recovers muscular tissue. Growth hormone plays a vital role in weight-training recovery. Growth hormone also assists in fat breakdown and repairing lean muscle tissue.
Avatar m tn Meaning, one exercise (say the deadlift) would work out a whole section of the body, rather than doing a workout that just targets one muscle group. I've been looking into body weight exercises, gymnastic strength training etc. Ideally each day or every other day I would be following this: Push Pull Core Leg 3 sets of 8-10. I just don't want to mess with weights and dumbells because of am still hesitant from my injury, while I have my strength back, not sure my mental state has recovered.
Avatar f tn Hi im a 13 year old girl and i am overweight for my height and age group. My height is 157cm and i am very nearly turning 14. I want to know if there are any workouts that will help me to get in shape quickly and it should also be fairly easy! please help! also i heard that there are some food that help you to burn fat??? what are they??
Avatar n tn So, for instance, you could do a set of flies for your chest immediately followed by a set of pull-downs for your upper back. You can also super-set the same muscle group to work that muscle to full exhaustion. A set of military presses followed by a set of lateral raises and then a set of front raises is a killer routine for your shoulders.
1697806 tn?1339086919 TRAIN THE WHOLE BODY The more muscles you involve either in one exercise or one training session the greater the hormone release you'll get from your training, and that stimulates muscle growth all day long. Hitting each muscle group with roughly the same volume (such as five sets of rows after five sets of bench presses) will ensure balanced training, allowing you to grow quickly and safely, avoiding injuries and preserving flexibility.
Avatar f tn Now, I don't like eating all day long, so what I do is just make sure to incorporate meat at every meal and I have had no problems getting fit, building muscle and recovering from workouts just by listening to the cues my body gives me. Honestly I wouldn't even advise anyone to follow a strict calorie plan, and 1200 calories is very low for someone who isn't sedentry.
Avatar m tn It first started out as issues with major soreness after weekend of house chores in yard and after gym workouts. The gym workouts did not concern me as much because I could cause some stress on muscle with weight lifting but after yardwork did not make sense because I do that every week for years and not any major yardwork, just mowing and weeding. It started with fatigue and muscle soreness all over my body which I could not explain.
Avatar f tn Zumba involves both fast and slow dancing, so it works like interval training. Zumba works your whole body, helping tone every muscle group, particularly your back and abdominals. The dance moves may also improve your posture, balance and flexibility. If you feel inhibited exercising with others, Zumba's party-like amosphere may help you loosen up and gain confidence.
Avatar m tn I do not know your routine or frequency but here are a couple of basic guidelines that my professional trainer gave me. First, For muscle growth and strength, no muscle group should be worked more than three times a week with at least on day rest in between. All workouts should NOT exceed 60 min.a day, and be sure to drink fluids throughout the workout to avoid dehydration, muscle cramps and stiffness. An example of an average workout would be; 3 sets of 8-12 reps with one min.
Avatar f tn Dedicate three weekly sessions to weight training. Make these total-body workouts, in which you work every major muscle group in a single session. This burns more calories and fat than training just one or two muscle groups each workout. Leave at least one day between each weights workout. For your cardio, three 20- to 60-minute sessions of vigorous activity each week.
Avatar f tn i am a freak about fitness, i guess the quickest way to sum up excercise tips is to say, focus on changing up your muscle group workouts, make sure you are using enough weight for your muscles' resistace, cardio cardio cardio! just run run run, as i know you do push those ladies around the block a few times every day.
Avatar f tn 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. After warming for at least five minutes aerobically and with at least one warmup set, select a weight for each exercise in which muscle exhaustion occurs between eight and 12 repetitions for three to five sets, resting 60 to 90 second between each set.
1741471 tn?1407162630 Previous research, however, has identified certain exercises that stimulate the damaged area. By subjecting patients to workouts based on that data, researchers think it may prevent further degeneration of the substantia nigra, and stimulate dopamine production, says Quincy Almeida, director of WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY ‘s fledgling Movement Disorders Research & Rehabilitation Centre in Waterloo.
Avatar f tn Exercise often, and follow a varied plan that includes strength training. Use the workouts that make use of flexibility and stretching, strength training and aerobics for the best results. Fitting in regular sessions of weightlifting, calisthenics or other strength activities can help increase muscle mass and keep the body toned and strong.
Avatar n tn Age:17 Male Good Health Height: 5'11" Weight: 255 I work chest and tricep mon, back and bicep tues, shoulders wed, legs thurs, abs and some agility fri. My school schedual is about to change and I have a weight training class...
Avatar f tn Work only two to three muscle groups per session and give each muscle group at least one day of rest. Cardio exercises are ideal for burning fat because they require you to consistently exert energy. To get in some cardio exercise, go rollerblading or running with some friends, bike to and from school, sign up for tennis lessons, take a high-impact aerobics class at the gym or play a dance video game.
2053729 tn?1330439106 I am 47 years old and I weigh 248. In the past few months I have started working out regularly. I go to aerobics twice a week for 75 minutes and strength and flex for 45 minutes once a week. On the weekends I do an exercise video at home. I have been watching what I eat following a high carb/low carb diet every other day. According to what I have researched, my BMR is 2485 and I eat about 1800 calories a day, so I should be losing weight just being me.
Avatar m tn Get on a stationary bike, go as hard as you can for 20 seconds, rest for 20, and go again. Do that eight times. You'll be drained—but done in just minutes. Use your days off effectively. Non-training days don't necessarily mean non-active days. Aim to do 30 minutes of light cardio or stretching through leisurely activities such as walking your dog or try yoga. It will improve your breathing, focus, and endurance—not to mention relieve sore muscles.
Avatar m tn I bought dumbbell set rack now trying to put on some muscle ,lose weight get sronger the problem Is i don't know who to listen to lot of people say different things about which exercises are best for which muscle group compound vs isolation exercises and how much weight to lift i need to have a plan any body can give me advice i would appreciate it
Avatar m tn by Jeff Anderson. Perform three full body workouts per week, focusing on the compound mass movements for each muscle group. Begin each workout with squats or deadlifts to create an anabolic surge of testosterone and growth hormone. For example, start Monday and Friday workouts with squats, and Wednesday workouts with deadlifts. Use a repetition range between 9 and 12 reps on every set to specifically target hypertrophy or muscle growth.
Avatar n tn Look for group classes offered by local community programs, community colleges, or fitness centers. If those aren’t available, pick up a beginner’s tai chi DVD and follow along in your living room. A pool can provide that. Try a water-based exercise routine that takes advantage of the buoyant yet resistant quality of water to increase joint flexibility and/or build strength. There are also water-aerobics routines to exercise your cardiovascular system.
