Less likely: High sed rates indicate inflammation. The complaints of muscle aches and weakness and stiffness suggests poymyositis. Futher evaluation by a rheumatologist with muscle enzyme tests and possible muscle biopsy may be necessary. If proven a trial of steroid therapy would be helpful. Pulmonary involvement with interstitial lung disease can occur. ...Read more

Are there other c/v exercises for 58 year old with bursitis in shoulders and knees besides swimming, cycling, and running/speed walking to lower chol?

Not many: Those are the biggies. You can try resistance training (ie weights). I would suggest low weights with high reps. Other possibilities include aerobics classes or even water aerobics. Looking at your situation from another perspective, maybe it is time to have your conditions evaluated for treatment if their symptoms limit your recreational and fitness activities. ...Read more

What is better to get a more lean & defined body for an endormoph, weight lifting or boy weight excersises such as press ups, sit ups etc?

Both, but...: You should approach weightlifting & body weight movements in a high intensity interval training (hiit) manner. Keep the reps high (15-20) and limit rest periods between movements. Vary the movements with each set. You do not list your age. Hiit is high intensity and not for everybody. See your doctor first. Crossfit and tabata type workouts are examples of hiit. Check them out - good luck! ...Read more

Which arm and abdominal exercises to tone muscles are considered effective?

Mix things up w/ running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume.

What is the difference in the exercise prescription for building muscular endurance vs muscle strength ?

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

What are cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength?

What are cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength?

Fitness: CV endurance refers to aerobic conditioning, or the body's ability to maintain a heightened level of physical activity over a long period of time. 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

Syrinx @ your age: It can be caused by several things such as muscular dystrophy (typically children), injury to the long thoracic nerve (would have to involve both sides so unlikely though this rarely seen with weight training), and damage to the upper spinal cord, which should be apparent on MRI of the cervical spine. Syrinx is one such cord injury that may develop over time in someone your age. ...Read more
