How To Get Built From Lifting Weights
Absolutely: Read up on simple calisthenics and go at them with great intensity and variety. My favorite are "killers" -- stand, drop to pushup position, do a pushup or three, stand up. Keep it up until you can't, do many sets daily. Watch what you eat -- enough lean protein, fruits ; vegetables, and not that much else. What worked for young mr. Wahlberg behind bars will work for you. ...Read more

Looking for a weight training program to get stronger with better endurance. Could you suggest any please?
Balance!: Weight training with more repititions will give your both a resistance and cardio workout at the same time, particualrly if you lift for at least thirty minutes. You will also burn more calories, but you will gain less strength for the time put in. This is called circuit weight training. Having a heart rate monitor is good, so you can make sure you are in your "target heart rate.". ...Read more

Yes, to a degree: Weight training is mainly used to build muscle mass and add lean muscle. By burning off calories, you could lose some fat over time. But, losing fat will happen quicker thru a diet plan (low fat, high protein).

Maybe by -----: Making the pectorals muscles become bigger and pushing the breasts forward. Make sure you exercise both sides equally as otherwise one side may be more prominent than the other. The breast tissue itself does not get bigger. Remember in lifting weights you are mostly using biceps and triceps and not the pectorals as much. So with simple lifting there maybe no change in your chest appearance. ...Read more
Stretching: Stretching is very helpful for keeping your muscles from getting tight. It is a good idea to warm up a little before you stretch. You can do so before your workout & after. Drink plenty of water to flush out the metabolites (ex lactic acid) that are created when your muscles are making energy to move. These can cause soreness. ...Read more
Will i get better since aug 2 i strained my lower back i've been taking the medication listed &when can I start slowlly lifting weights again?
Soon: Most muscle strains like back strains can take 4 to 8 weeks to completely resolve. Lite exercise is ok during this time but i would not recommend weight lifting exercises like squats, leg presses or lunging till pain is all gone. Lite weight work and common sense (stop if pain develops) is generally ok as tolerated. ...Read more
