Longer intervals are associated with full term deliveries, and breastfeeding can lengthen this also. It still could be within the first month though. ...Read more

If i workout once a week and single body part how many exercises and then sets to get the maximum muscle growth without over training ?

Get a trainer: Overtraining is seldom a consideration. Probably your guide will urge you to do three sets of ten reps each, at the maximum weight you can handle this. Work each body area 2-3 x / week, skipping at least one day between. Work several different areas at each gym visit. Creatine and an electronic muscle stimulator unit (if okay with your physician) will help growth. ...Read more
