Re: Get rid of belly

Thanks. What about stationary bikes like Fit Load? I don't like bikes. But that's just a personal preference. They are allright in means of losing fat. If you get the resistance/speed to match a good interval routine then no problem. The main point behind all this is sudden bursts of high amounts o...

Re: Get rid of belly

Thanks. But still, once i follow these steps, there must be a kind of exercise which can help me to lose fat in that area. So, which one do you think is the best for achieving this goal? There are three good ones you can count on. 1) Heavy resistance training. Most likely you are doing it now. Do b...

Re: Eliminating plateau with different weights?

Well, first of all, shock is not a good thing. Second, only your brain can guess. The rest of the body doesn't do that. Third, there is no way to eliminate plateaus. Plateaus occur when you run out of the gains that are due to increasing motor-unit recruitment and improvement of skill and improveme...

Eliminating plateau with different weights?

Hi, im looking forward to gain muscle.

Im in the 8 to 12 rep range with progressive load.

In order to not hit a plateau, and keep the body in shock,
Should i sometimes do some sets in which i decrease the weight and increase the reps, so that i keep my body guessing?

Thanks..

Re: Repetition speed for muscle definition?

Light weights will do nothing for you except waste your time. Muscle definition is largely a product of body fat percentage. If you want to be more defined, you need to lose fat. That's assuming that the muscle is there to define. To get more muscle, get strong. Lift heavy things. But what kind of ...

Re: Rest time between sets?

How low will you go? More intensity means more rest. Typically, the time frame of resting falls between 30 seconds and 10 minutes. Yeah, that's a long scale. It is affected by many factors, including your goals, the intensity and volume...The main reason for your rest is fatique and recovery. You n...

Rest time between sets?

Hi, My goal is to gain muscle mass. Im doing pyramid workouts with weights. Something like: Sets of 15 reps, then 12 reps, 10 reps, 8, 6.... So, the reps are decreasing between sets and the weight of the weights is increasing. I was wondering, how much time between sets is the ideal time to rest? So...
