Re: Question about Situps ?

I didn't recommend leg raises because they still allow the hip flexors to overwhelm the abs. If you need to strengthen abs relative to your hip flexors, leg raises are not the way.

Don't use the full editor. You won't see the smiles. You will still have basic posting functions.

Re: Fatloss issues

Exercise is needed to retain muscle. Both HIIT and weight training are effective for this. It doesn't have to be either/or and shouldn't be. To get below 8% you should get a coach that can help you.

Comprehensive discussion! Nothing to add..
If you have nothing useful to add, don't comment. I disapproved your request for a post promoting another site. If you make more trivial posts, I will no longer be so tolerant and you will be banned.

Re: A quick question about rest

The length of time to recover from a workout is the defining characteristic of the categories beginner/intermediate/advanced. The more advanced the trainee, the more complicated the training program. Beginners should keep it simple and repeat workouts frequently.

Re: Difference between shoulder press and military press

Military press is done standing at attention, hence it's name. This requires different stabilization requirements than a standing press. The same primary muscles are involved.

As long as you repeat a movement in reasonable time that you can track progress, you will be OK. Keep notes and adjust to what works for you. Also, keep in mind that beginners progress faster and can see progress almost daily. Intermediates can see progress week to week and advanced lifters need com...

Carbs with the protein can help with the uptake of the protein. Nutrition timing may have marginal utility in elite athletes, especially with multiple workouts per day, but for the average person, as long as you get a meal containing some protein withing a few hours of training, you will get the ben...
