Can working out more than three times a week over train you body ?Or anything

Can working out more than three times a week over train you body ?Or anything

Not necessarily: If you exercise smartly, the answer is no. Cross training (exercising different muscle groups) is the key to avoiding over training. With cross training, you can work out 6 days per week (take a day off for rest). Alternate aerobic exercise with strength and even agility training, with pllates and yoga. Check the internet for good cross training regimes. ...Read more

I have a full body, bodyweight workout could doing this three times a week lead to overtraining because training all muscles three times in a week?

I have a full body, bodyweight workout could doing this three times a week lead to overtraining because training all muscles three times in a week?

Listen to your body: The quick answer is no with the following caveats. Adequate rest between workouts along with a balanced and healthy diet is essential to limit the probability and ill effects of over training. A strong core (abdominal muscles) is essential and can be part of a daily exercise regimen. Listening to your body and taking a holistic approach is key. ...Read more

A variety of foods: Healthy diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. Surely avoid sugar and simple starch calories. Eat some protein with each meal. ...Read more

I am 24 weeks pregnant and my baby has not moved at all today. He usually kicks more than three times a day. Is it normal to not feel them everyday?

I am 24 weeks pregnant and my baby has not moved at all today. He usually kicks more than three times a day. Is it normal to not feel them everyday?

Movement in pregnanc: Yes, at 24 weeks you should feel your baby move every day. A good plan: drink lots of fluid, and lie down quietly for about 2 hours. If you still feel no movement, it may be wise to check with your OB doctor. Sometimes at 24 weeks the movements may be small enough you miss feeling it if you are busy doing something else. ...Read more

There : There is nothing inherently dangerous about doing push ups. You are wise to monitor your symptoms and cut back or modify your workout if pain develops. My only concerns relate to how quickly you are building up as well as concerns related to strength balances. When exercises are increased, a rule of thumb is to avoid increasing by any more than 20% per week. Going from 100 to 150 pushups is a 50% increase. The risk of injury is greater with rapid increases in either the weight or number of repetitions. The other concern is strength balance. Pushups strengthen the pectoral muscles. Over-development of the pects tends to pull the shoulders forward and may contribute to problems in the shoulder or neck. In general, if you strengthen the muscles in the chest, you should try to do a similar amount of exercise that strengthens the muscles in the back (between the shoulder blades). Adding some rowing exercises or reverse flies may help maintain balance. Similarly, doing too many squats or leg press can increase imbalances between the quads and hamstrings. People often focus more on building up the muscles that they see in the mirror and forget about the muscles that they don't see (but still need to be strong to maintain proper balances). ...Read more

I am very fit, train boxing three times a week. Have just noticed swollen sore vein on inside of knee, is this bad? Hurts to walk and pops out.

That is: In the area of the superficial saphenous vien and if tender, prominent and at all reddish then there may be a clot in the vein. Not as important as if in a deep vein but should be evaluated by your doctor or a physician in a competent urgent care center or fast track of an emergency department. In the meantime warm compresses, and Ibuprofen and rest the limb. ...Read more
