I've been doing plyometrics for a month, and now after ive been still for a while and stand up, my left knee hurts for a little while... Is it normal?

A general rule for exercise is that you should not have any pain in the joints that lasts more than 30 minutes after you stop. You should discuss the right exercise program for you with your doctor. ...Read more

Bloating: Laprascopic incisions are small, however they can develop into a hernia. However the sensation of intestines spilling out is very serious and potentially lethal is true.

Lose more weight.: Having six pack abs means that you have little or no fat overlying your muscles. You can have the strongest abs in the world but if they are concealed by a layer of adipose tissue, they won't show. For men, this means being at or near their ideal bmi. For women it actually means they have less than what might be healthy for them. Keep doing what you are doing. You're on the right track. ...Read more

My current resting heart rate is 60 bpm, but I want to lower that to about 50 bpm, or lower if possible. I'm a soccer player and I do plyometric training 4 times a week, and weight lifting 4 times a week and also yoga once a week and some stretching on Su

My current resting heart rate is 60 bpm, but I want to lower that to about 50 bpm, or lower if possible. I'm a soccer player and I do plyometric training 4 times a week, and weight lifting 4 times a week and also yoga once a week and some stretching on Su

Reason?: Is there a particular reason to want to lower your heart rate? 60 bpm in athlete is perfectly fine and normal. There is no physiological reason (that I am aware of) why you would want it lower than that. Too low of a heart rate is not good either since it would not allow adequate blood flow to your body. If it goes down to the 50's it's ok under your circumstances but not too low. ...Read more
