Exercise, lose weight and see what you look like then, there are no shortcuts. ...Read more

Acute exercise has a catabolic effect (breaking down), during the recovery phase there will be an anabolic effect (building up). You must allow this cycle to be completed to maximize results. ...Read more

Can you tell me which exercise (s) work the same muscles as a chin-up?

Many: The chin up involves your forearms (wrist flexors/grip), biceps and lattisimus dorsi (back). So pulls up are close but more difficult related to the wrist pronation. "Lat pull downs" are a mimic for pull ups (but seated). Rowing motions, like seated cable rows, bent over dumbbell rows or inverted rows, will also work similar muscles but at different angles. ...Read more

Please answer! What muscles do wide grip push ups work and are they good for boxing?

Don't forget legs: It's true, any good upper body workout will be helpful, but don't forget your legs. Remember, much of your punching power starts and builds from the legs and hips, allowing you to extend and throw with power at your distance. Punching ineffectively with just your arms will wear you out quickly during a round. So if boxing is the main concern, don't forget to work your legs and footwork. ...Read more
