Is having a diversified work-out schedule good or bad ?

I have currently splitted my work-out on different kinds of exercise so that when I work-out a specific body muscle I have about 2-3 exercises which I repeat. For example, for the deltoid muscles I have divised 4 programs: (1) backstroke dumbbell shoulder press single shoulder abduction (2) flies wi...

Matt thanks for the tips. Yes I am pretty healthy although I'm not sure if I do actually get enough proteins and vitamins. I am doing 15 reps as I also want to do a bit of workout for the flexibility and tone of my muscles and not only for strenght and power (I think I read this somewhere, is it tru...

why am i losing strenght through my workout

I have just started a fitness program for about 2 weeks and I have organized my body muscles into two schedules. It looks like this: Schedule 1 (each exercise - 15 reps, exception are the abs where I do 30 reps for each exercise) - Chest (modified pushups, push ups, dumbbell press, dumbbell flys) - ...

I find it a bit difficult to fully understand why somewhere around 30 reps would be a bit too much. I have searched through all the articles from this site and haven't found the exact answer for my question. I perhaps should have mentioned before but I am not looking for high-performance body buildi...

What about exercises which don't imply weights, for example push-ups, squats or abdominal exercises, is it safe to go beyond 15 reps ?

Too many reps per excercise?

I am curently doing about 30 repetitions for each excercise. When working my shoulders, bipeps or triceps I usually lift dumbbells of 6kg and am thinking of progressively raising it to 16kg.

Is this wrong? I feel the fatigue when getting around the 25th rep then I try to push it to 30.

Group muscles worked together or alternatively

For example if I decide that I want to work one day the abdomen, the neck muscles, the deltoid, the pectoralis and triceps should I work each of them independetly (I work the abdomen with the full range of excercises, then the neck, the...

Unsure about something

I once red that you shouldn't excercise on a daily basis but more something like 1 day excercise and 1 day rest to give the muscles time to regenerate. Is this the same for running ? I mean is it unhealthy to run day by day for the leg muscles ? Also are there any visible advantages to stretching le...
