Re: New Workout

I think I've almost settled on my new workout. I'm still doing weights once a week, plus bodyweight exercises, plus assorted pre-MMA class exercises, plus actual MMA training and Kendo. My goal in this workout is strength and power rather than endurance, so I'm doing less reps over more sets and I'...

Re: Muscle that can be trained everyday

Dear administrator, moderators and all, This is one of the best exercise website on earth. I have been doing weight training for 10 years. The only muscle that I know which can be trained on a daily basis is the Ab. Does anyone know which muscle other than the ab that can be trained each day? Thank...

[http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/default.asp?SearchPhrase=weight+releasers&m=SR] The weight releasers allow you to overload the eccentric ...

High intensity exercise program is the key, "high intensity muscle contraction is associated with an enhance normalization of glucose homostasis..." I forgot to add where I got this information.

Wrong, it does not apply to most obese individuals. Many of them have some sort of insulin resistence. I suspect they do have some insulin resistance problems. However, that does not mean they should avoid carbohydrates in a post workout beverage. Obese individuals burn glycogen stores in their mus...

Re: Which daily calloric expenditure calculator.

If I use the Dr Squatt based calculator on http://drsquat.com/articles/calorieneeds.html I get a caloric expenditure of 4140 kCal. For a normal day including a 45min crossresistance session, a 90minute ninjitsu class and 45 minute ride to and from work. (office work). If I use the calculator on the...

The reason for the carbs after exercise is to replace the glycogen in your muscles and prevent your body from using the protein in your muscles for fuel. Even if you are not on a muscle-building program you must do this to prevent muscle atrophy. Excellent point. This applies to obese individuals a...

I was talking mostly about the post workout simple carbs not being a good idea for the obese. They don't need it to put on muscle or prevent loss, and it wouldn't get shuttled to the muscle because of impaired insulin function. Not to mention they most likely already have high insulin levels are ge...

Tim, in reference to his post on the General Board, Martin is a pretty big guy at 280. Would you agree that, from what he posted, he might not be eating enough and his diet will be detrimental in the long run? Yes. That is not enough calories, regarless of the size of the individual. It the equival...

By volume I meant the total number of sets done. You can beat a muscle to death with too many sets. I am not an advocate of volume. The key is intensity. And there is an inverse relationship between intensity and duration (volume). When intensity goes up, the volume goes down and vis versa. "You ca...

You're right - 12x4 means 12 sets of 4 reps I've worked out twice a day before, but never hitting the same bodyparts twice in a day. I believe that competitive Olympic lifters train several times a day. But the focus of their workouts is more towards refining their motor skills for their lifts, not...

Re: whey protein brands

I noticed that the price of protein can vary drastically, is there any real difference in the more expensive brands quote] There is a difference in the price due to the quality of the whey protein. The higher grade protein is better assimulated and provides a higher percentage of protein, it enters...

I need to add here, that the Swiss ball has served as a clever marketing tool for gyms, especially those where "personal trainers" need to attract new clients. Because they're a trendy fitness phenomena, many people expect thier gym or personal trainers to employ them. For me, it's pure entertainme...

Kenny, I do truly understand what you are trying to say, I own Bompa's Periodization book (A good friend of mine, we both worked weekends in the local gym was studying a sports science degree while I was doing my Physics degree). It's certainly a great book, but it was written 10 years ago, as was ...

Not entirely true, unless both competitors are strapped to aboard save for thier punching arm and are having a jabbing contest. True effective punching power comes from the legs, hips, through the torso and finally through the shoulders. A good, effective puncher throws punches as if i is swinging ...
