One, more thing. Let's not forget about basal metabolic rate. That was the most important part of my post yesterday.

Running on a track burns more then running on a treadmil. Actually running on a treadmil burns more then sort of running for cardio heart range. Sort of running for cardio heart range burns more then jogging for "fat burn range". For some reason the fat burn range is suppose to be better at burning ...

It seems to me Jack Lalanne has videos about water excercises. I would check those out if I were you. That would probably be the best for your situation.

The advice stands. There is no magic energy food. You can have a little caffine to help with your alertness however. Most people do not have a problem with caffine although there are a few who are sensetive to it. That is why the advice stands. Having less spikes in your blood sugar and insulin resp...

In general, the eliptical, bike and stairsteppers burn more. If you will notice, they tend to be harder. Like I was saying a steeper incline and a light pair of dumbells can make the treadmill better. Doing weight training moves with light weight at a fast pace is another way to get more calorie bur...

Stick with the cardio zone. It's good for your heart and still burns as many or more calories. Keep in mind cardio/aerobics are for working your heart and lungs. Other things are better for burning fat. Not to mention you probably burn the least amount of calories on the treadmill compared to other ...

Chin ups and pull ups on different days would be a bad idea. Not all that has to be done on back, but it's not real excessive. Decline press is a million times better then pec deck for sternal pecs. I think an isolation set is a good idea for triceps. You don't really need 2, but 1 is a good idea. W...

starch does cause the blood sugar spike which in turn causes the insulin respone and crash. Gluten could be worse but I don't know. Some people are arguing that white flour is worse then sugar. Weather it is or isn't you still get that crash though.

It could be genetic. Maybe you bench with a real wide grip. I would try dumbbell bench holding them the other way, like a hammer grip. Then when you do the press move them in untill they touch at the top. It might be more effective to do them single arm if you can that way you can push it across fur...

It would be easier to help if you post what your typical diet is. I can tell you this though. There are 3 ways food causes you to be tired. First, eating a large ammount at one time. Your digestive system gets the energy which means nap time for you. Another way is when you eat sugary and starchy fo...

The dressig isn't that bad so I would say it's worth it. It's a good idea to take a multivitimin though. That takes care of your micro nutrients. Then you just worry about the macro.

The weight for sure. Anything over 15 reps does nothing. The 12 to 15 range tends to be endurance. If you want strength don't go over 12. If you don't want to increase anymore, and all you want to do is maintain, just do 2 sets of 12 with as much as you can do now and don't increase.

Amen to that. I love hardboiled eggs. I eat a lot of eggs. I found a really cool idea in Mens Health Magazine last month regarding eggs. They call them "egg muffins". I really like them. You just grease a standard muffin pan. Then crack 1 egg into each cup. Then you can tear bits off of a turkey or ...

A good rule of thumb is 4 sets, not counting warmups. This does vary a little. You can do 2 sets of 10 to 12 and 2 of 13 to 15, or do all about 12 to 14. If you do less rest (which will force lighter weight) this will move you more twoards endurance. So you can do 10 to 12 on all sets, and do 5 or 6...
