My fitness trainer adviced to use stability balls of different sizes. Which ones should I use?

My fitness trainer adviced to use stability balls of different sizes. Which ones should I use?

Hard to say,: It's mostly a comfort and mobility issue. If you have any mobility issues then larger balls will be easier to get up from. Then you next issues will be what you plan on doing with them, different exercise require different sizes and that's bit too complicated to answer in this short space. ...Read more

Hi sir im a regular gym trainer I want to use san performance creatine micronized. Can u use it? Is it safe? Is it usefull?

Who knows: Who knows if it's safe, 'cause it's never been studied. What is known is that it doesn't help anyone, so why even take the risk? Why would you put this in your body if you were interested in health and fitness enough to become a trainer? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. ...Read more

I get left side lower back spasms after exercise or when standing still? I use the stepper 45 minutes daily plus work with a trainer 3x/week

Get it checked out: You may be over-training, or doing too much of the same kind of exercise. It's easy to fall into a "trance" when you do the same exercise every day and set yourself up for repetitive stress injury. Regardless, any persistent pain should be checked out. ...Read more

I m a skinny boy and my trainer asked me to use for (weight gainer 2200 gold) for gym. My question is that it has any side effect or not on my health?

I m a skinny boy and my trainer asked me to use for (weight gainer 2200 gold) for gym. My question is that it has any side effect or not on my health?

No way to tell: Unfortunately, dietary supplements are regulated as foods (as opposed to drugs). As such, they are not required to undergo the same testing (or prove their claims to be true). Also, since no third party testing of their product is required - the ingredients listed don't even have to match what is in the bottle. Wish I had a better answer. .. Good luck! ...Read more

Can I use Elliptical cross trainer for my workout. Because u said not to do jogging and running? Is this machine is safe for disk herniated persons

Elliptical use is OK: Using an elliptical machine is not likely to place more pressure on lumbar discs than standing. Disc pressure is thought to be highest when sitting and leaning forward. Adding reason to minimize sitting for prolonged periods and using good posture. In the absence of weakness, or numbness in the lower extremities, be as active as possible and strengthen your abdominal musculature. ...Read more

I, m 20 163cm weight 50 kg my chest less than required i'hv joined gym now trainer told me to use supliment (gain fast and serious mass) is it safe??

I like it natural: Unfortunately there is a need to gain muscle or lose weight quickly. The products you describe could possibly gain muscles but without researching it these could be harmful to your body. My approach would be to go the natural route without special supplements. It has worked for many professional and non professional athletes for years. I'd stay away from anabolic steroids or performance enhancers ...Read more

I have composite fillings in most of my teeth, including the front. Can I safely use a dental trainer for teeth alignment, or can it cause cracks?

Fillings and...: Generally speaking, if the composite fillings are sound, then Orthodontic movement by any number of methods should not harm them. If they break or come out they were probably in need of replacement or the teeth should have some more permanent or stronger replacement. Having said that the dentist actually treating you is best to make that determination. Discuss with him or her before treatment. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I m 23yrs old and go to gym, I want to know that is masturbation reduce size of my biceps or body? As my gym trainer ask not to masturbate?

Healthy Masturbation: No. I do not see any medical or scientific reason for the trainer's recommendation.

Masturbation is a normal human experience.


Plain and simple frequent and regular masturbation is not only normal it can be a sign of good physical and mental health.

We do know that those gentlemen who ejaculate on a frequent basis have less prostate cancer.

I started gyming few months ago, now my trainer reffed me to use myofusion elite protein shakes. I have heard that some shakes contains steroid.

Protein supplements: Are urged by many trainers...and they may be helpful in some if used cautiously. The main goal is a high protein diet for muscle building; the more you can get from healthy food, the better. I can not find information about this shake having steroids added; I did find some information about the manufacturer's adding amino acids instead of pure whey protein. Bottom line: get your protein from diet. ...Read more
