Check them out - good luck! ...Read more

Exercises such as crunches, planks, sit-ups, etc are good for toning the abdominal muscles, but cardio is best for weight loss. ...Read more
What is the difference in the exercise prescription for building muscular endurance vs muscle strength ?
Str vs Endur: Strength is looking for maximum output over a short period of time. An example of this would be powerlifting. Endurance would be training for long periods of time usually at a reduced rate. This would be a distance runner. Usually it is best to cross train, or train for both as in doing so you can develop both types of muscle fibers, fast twitch (strength) and slow twitch (endurance). ...Read more
After weights workout i experienced muscle spasms in my right pectoral muscles for over 24 hours, no indication of palpitations, increased pulse or heart issues. What is the cause or concerns?

I liken it to marathons over sprints, like driving freeway miles instead of city miles. Your heart is fondest of freeway miles vs short bursts that we think of as city miles-like your auto! Achieve CV endurance by steady exertion over longer pds of time ...Read more
