Re: Is improving your appearance your main goal?

I started going the gym in September, and also do a personal trainer module at uni so, I've gained a nice bit of knowledge quite quickly. Has there been any results so far? Do you have a need to really change anything? Fat loss is a slow process, especially if muscle mass is wished to be maintained...

Re: Is improving your appearance your main goal?

You get more ripped as you lose bodyfat and gain muscle. Best ways to both is good nutrition, hardass resistance training, and High-intensity interval training. Tell us about yourself, how experienced are you? How's your diet and such? What have you been doing, if anything? I tell you to crank up t...

Is improving your appearance your main goal?

For me, the answer is yes.

I'm looking for all the advice on getting ripped, other than eat right and body fat.

I've been looking into rep ranges etc, information like that please

Thanks

General Questions

Hi guys, I've got a few questions that might be random and stupid but hey ho; 1. Is there a way of hitting different areas of the pectorals? Because I know alot of this is down to genetics but my pecs only seem to develop on the outside, not the inside bit? If that makes sense. Are there any exercis...

Questions that I need clearing up.

Hi, I'm pretty new-ish to working out and have a few questions which will help me to achieve my goal. 1. When doing lateral raises do you have a slight bend in your arm? Or straight out? 2. Since I've started working out I've noticed my shoulder blades seem to stick out more? Is this just me or coul...

Re: V - Shaped Abs!

@Dub + stuward - thanks :) Do you think that V-Shaped abs look good along with flabby weak legs and a soft weak back and arms? Why don't you care about the rest of your body? I've neglected this part of my body, I have worked the rest of my body for many months now and have taken great care in ensur...

V - Shaped Abs!

Hi there, I've decided that one of my goals is a v-shaped abs. Now my body fat is low enough, and I do training my abs, using either 8minute abs level 1 or a workout of planks. But I've got a few questions about getting v-shaped abs. What are the main muscles in the 'V' part of the abs? What are the...

Warm up reps!

Warm-up reps must provide benefits; increased neuro-muscular contact, is one I think would make sense.

Does anyone have any academic links to journals or books that explain the benefits of warm-up reps?

Thanks! :thumbleft:

Re: Myogenic and Neurogenic tone

@hoosegow

Yeah exactly, when you say train I was wondering in more detail, optimum sets/reps/recovery, having looked at the differences between strength, hypertrophy and endurance sets/reps/recovery I was wondering which applies to myogenic and neurogenic tone?
