Ok, in terms of pure calories, here are the numbers from a textbook from one of my classes: Running at a 7 minute mile will burn .111 calories per minute per pound of bodyweight. Bycicling at 15mph will burn .097 calories per minute per pound of bodyweight. Swimming at a moderately fast speed such a...

Ok, first, to Ironman: No, it wasn't something as minor as that. I was cashing my brother's roomate's check, and they called to verify. When they called, he said that he didn't want anything to do with me, he just wanted me in jail, according to the police reports. There was an officer already there...

Part of the problem, Wouter, is that it sounds like you are lifting with too many repetitions. If you have been lifting long enough to get accustomed to the weights, and to learn your form, start lifting heavier. Do sets that you can handle from 4-6 reps at, and try pyramiding. Establish a one rep m...

To add in to Ironman's reply, gaining the muscle will help you shed more pounds by burning more calories. The more muscle you have, the more energy you use, and the more fat you burn. Building muscle burns fat, and lifting weights keeps burning calories for hours after your done lifting because the ...

Ok, where to start...First, sorry it took so long to reply, I couldn't get to a computer until today. I appreciate the responses and the help. So the unanimous understanding is that the cardio is going to ultimately kill what I'm going for. Here was my thought behind the cardio...I was aware of the ...

I haven't ever heard that before. I am currently working on my AAOT, and I have to take some health classes as part of my requirements. I got this website from my professor. As part of that class, we have a textbook that discusses something like this, but what it actually said was that endurance exe...

Strength During Fat Loss

I am just getting ready to cycle into a fat-burning routine, and I need to know what is the best way to maintain muscle mass while burning fat. I am planning on doing cardio 5 times a week for 30 minutes to an hour, hitting an exercise bike at an average of anywhere from 20-22 mph with a fairly high...

I agree that flyes shold be incorperated in the workout. I usually do a set of flat bench flyes, incline flyes and then decline flyes, and then move into crossovers in the same order. Switch the order or move to standing cable exercises that hit the same parts of your chest for variation. Among the ...

Puck handling on an exercise ball?? Hard stuff was right! I could see where if you're playing defence you're going to want to have more size on you. For the goalies, what kind of flexibility training did they have them doing? The butterfly training and squats are a pretty standard thing. Did they ha...

I agree in eating 4-5 meals a day, as a rule of thumb make it every two hours. I played hockey also, I was a winger my first few years, and once I hit age 10 I started playing goalie, and continued that for the next several years. I'm from the Tri-Cities, Washington originally, and Scott Gomez, Olaf...

Jailfood/lean muscle

I am currently incarcerated in a correctional facility in Salem, Oregon, and have been for the past 5 years, give or take a month or two. I started lifting as soon as I could, and have gone every day, barring time spent in trouble. The problem that I am having is gaining lean muscle mass with what w...
