Well I've had them off and on for 6 months now. If it were CCS I'd have probably lost my legs at this point. I'll start doing the stretches and leg work and see if that helps.

Shin Splints

I've got pretty bad shin splints. I can barely jog, let alone run. I'd like to be able to actually go running again, but I don't know what I need to do to fix this. Are shin splints a permenant thing? Is there anything I can fo to rehabilitate them? Is there anything I can to to help them heal faste...

The calculations are more accurate in the 6 to 12 % range. Matt, what does it calculate your max weight to be at your current % and what is it actually?

Do any of the people here think there is a physiological limit the the amount of lean mass a person can carry at a certain bodyfat percentage?

Maximum Muscular Bodyweight

An interesting article. I was wondering what everyone else here thinks of it. It seems to be stirring up controversy.

hip mobility

My lower back was sore for almost a week after I did squats and deadlifts. Turns out it's because I have almost no mobility in my hips because my hamstrings are so tight. I can't even touch my toes. What should I be doing to fix this and how long is it going to take?

A basic question about Protien and Calloric intake.

For bodybuilding, what's the recomended daily intake of Protien and Callories? I've heard for protien it's 1 gram per pound of body weight. I just wanted to know if that's true, and for calories, I've heard lots of different things. I was just wondering if someone here could clear it all up for me.

But you have to admit, if the FDA/EPA say 1 can a week, and you're eating 3 or 4 a day, you're tempting fate.

This might help.

1 can per week of albacore white tuna is the MOST you are allowed to eat. (or 3 cans of light chunk tuna.) acording to the FDA/EPA.

I can't do them well. I can't do a one armed or one legged anything ( one armed pushup, one armed chinup, one legged quat.) And I have no idea (or inclination) how to work my way up to that.

Silver, both Ironman and Viking make valid points about rows and chins. They really are a bit different. Chins/pullups work the vertical plane, while rows work the horizontal, and as we all know, the back is very complex, and to work it thoroghly, you really need at least 4 or 5 movements. You migh...

See, the one thing I hate about bodyweight excercises is that while certain excercises are so rediculously easy I should be using weights (Squats, Pushups.) Others, (Chin Ups) I struggle with. Can I get away with replacing the Bent Arm Pullover and the Bent Over Row with Chin Ups (And once I'm stron...

I get it. I guess a better way to phrase my question would be, "How do you balance your routine when you've got a lot of compound excercises?"

I'm just trying to learn what I can, and find a balance. I've had people beating me over the head about how horrible weight training is and how weight trainers have no strength and how wonderful bodyweight excercises are. By learning what I can about them now, the next time I hear a tirade I can jus...
