What type of full day work out includes bicycling, weight lifting and strap weights?

What type of full day work out includes bicycling, weight lifting and strap weights?

Overuse: Full day workout ? Must have a goal / purpose for this. Only ones i know of for this are endurance athletes -- triathlon, cycling, running. Certainly ok to mix and match, but should lead to goal with purposeful steps along the way. Be sure to take in calories while doing the workout. Also, recovery time critical -- don't cut this short. Good luck. ...Read more

With a tailbone injury can you do strength training w weights ie squats,leg press, hip abducter and cardio - elliptical?

With a tailbone injury can you do strength training w weights ie squats,leg press, hip abducter and cardio - elliptical?

Varies: It varies somewhat based on the severity of the injury. If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated. ...Read more

Do weightlifting stunt growth in teenage boys with arm work, squats no deadlift kinda thing, does the body use energy on muscle instead of bone growth?

Do weightlifting stunt growth in teenage boys with arm work, squats no deadlift kinda thing, does the body use energy on muscle instead of bone growth?

Not Really: There are areas of bone growth at the end of long bones, called epiphyseal plate(s). This is where we get "height" and "length" of our extremities. It has been shown if young males, particularly, engage in heavy resistance exercise too early, before these plates have fully developed, the length of these long bones can be muted. It is not excessive, meaning a 6'5" male will not become 5'11". ...Read more

Could I take amino acids for recovery from training (wrestling, strength and conditioning) without gaining weight?

Could I take amino acids for recovery from training (wrestling, strength and conditioning) without gaining weight?

Yes: Amino acid pills or powders have a specific calorie content, but it is usually small. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins such as those found in lean meat. Supplements are not likely to provide any benefit beyond a balanced menu including meat, dairy, eggs, beans and rice. I suggest you do a little research on real food sports nutrition. Gaining weight is NORMAL at 16, allow it! ...Read more

Pain top/front of both shoulders, from chin ups or lifting kettle bells. Worst when raising my outstretched arm from eye level to overhead. Three ?

Pain top/front of both shoulders, from chin ups or lifting kettle bells.  Worst when raising  my outstretched arm from eye level to overhead. Three ?

Probably kettle ball: You seem to be complaining of deltoid and primarily anterior deltoid pain which is worked with raising arms in the front. But if you're kipping your pullups then this will put tremendous stress on the shoulder as well.The exercises you mentioned often go with cross fit plans. I've lifted for many yrs and my concern is doing complex moves w/weights so rapidly when near fatigue. Bad form = injuries. ...Read more

Train hard: The term is used either for someone who is light-framed or for someone who gains muscle relatively more slowly when doing resistance training. Work out for your goals.

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Warm up vs cool down: Active warm up is ideal prior to intense workouts. Depending upon how aggressive your yoga routine is, it might serve as warm up. With that said, cooling down is also a good idea after intense exercise too. Bottom line, there's no proof that any specific exercise routine is better than another for warm up or cool down, aside from general statements. ...Read more
