Why Do You Get More Veins After Lifting Weights
What causes blue veins to show under your skin on your thighs and chest which started since weight training?
Result of Wt loss!:
It is due to loss of fat under the skin, and as the underlying muscles get bigger with training, the veins become prominent. The veins are located just under the skin, then fascia, under which the muscles are located.
I am sure yeins become prominent elsewhere else also, but one sees them easily on the thighs and chestwall, while those on the back or back of thighs/legs are not seen easily. ...Read more
I've spider veins in my legs, it doesn't hurt but it's unattractive specially that I'm only 24 & in a good weight. How to get rid of it?
Knotty Shins: Depends on the type of lifting you're doing. I imagine any exercise that activates the muscles over the shins could cause them to spasm. That area can be hard to treat; I usually refer to pt for graston technique. ...Read more
Started lifting weights and doing some push ups. Will any of my activity cause my breasts to change (get smaller or bigger)?
No: Doing pushups and weight lifting may result in larger pectoralis muscles, which could cause your breasts to protrude more, giving the illusion of breast enlargement. The breasts themselves would not be expected to change. ...Read more
What do you advise if I'm trying to lose some weight and get toned about 6-10 lbs. How long should I do cardio for and lifting weights?
As I am an endomorph, how lean could I naturally get with diet & hard weight training? I've been on low carb for about a yr nd im about 12-15% bodyfat
Too lean: You are too lean, in fact almost anorexic. Consider that to join the navy seals you need a body fat of approximately 20-25 percent. ...Read more
Absolutely: Read up on simple calisthenics and go at them with great intensity and variety. My favorite are "killers" -- stand, drop to pushup position, do a pushup or three, stand up. Keep it up until you can't, do many sets daily. Watch what you eat -- enough lean protein, fruits ; vegetables, and not that much else. What worked for young mr. Wahlberg behind bars will work for you. ...Read more
Yes, to a degree: Weight training is mainly used to build muscle mass and add lean muscle. By burning off calories, you could lose some fat over time. But, losing fat will happen quicker thru a diet plan (low fat, high protein). Don't be surpised if you gain some weight as you add muscle mass, but keep working and your body fat percentage will decrease and this is better for you! ...Read more
Maybe by -----:
Making the pectorals muscles become bigger and pushing the breasts forward.
Make sure you exercise both sides equally as otherwise one side may be more prominent than the other. The breast tissue itself does not get bigger. Remember in lifting weights you are mostly using biceps and triceps and not the pectorals as much.
So with simple lifting there maybe no change in your chest appearance. ...Read more
Training for height?: Training will not make you grow taller. ...Read more
Absolutely!: Bench presses, flat and inclined are key! Narrow hands or wide-set are another variable. Push ups, dips, chest fly with dumbbells. Do these in any combination and you will make noticeable chest gains! ...Read more
Stretching: Stretching is very helpful for keeping your muscles from getting tight. It is a good idea to warm up a little before you stretch. You can do so before your workout & after. Drink plenty of water to flush out the metabolites (ex lactic acid) that are created when your muscles are making energy to move. These can cause soreness. ...Read more
Will I get better since aug 2 I strained my lower back I've been taking the medication listed &when can I start slowlly lifting weights again?
Soon: Most muscle strains like back strains can take 4 to 8 weeks to completely resolve. Lite exercise is ok during this time but I would not recommend weight lifting exercises like squats, leg presses or lunging till pain is all gone. Lite weight work and common sense (stop if pain develops) is generally ok as tolerated. ...Read more
I got bursitis in my shoulder from lifting wights and after I'm healed and go back to lifting weights am I more or less likely to get it again?
Yes: Yes, you are, if you go back to lifting heavy right away and your form and posture is not correct. I would recommend starting slowly and making sure you have proper form and technique. Also, lifting different muscle groups on each day will help prevent it from coming back. ...Read more
May be normal: Clicking of the joints is often very normal. With working out, tendons thicken and can snap over bony prominences. Unless painful, this snapping may not be a problem. If painful, then get your shoulder evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon or sports specialist. Also, analyze your work out routine with a trainer to make sure your technique does not create shoulder problems. ...Read more
Too soon: Absolutely speak to your orthopedist. He/she will guide you based on operative considerations. ...Read more
I get cracking sounds in my joints when lifting weights does this mean I should avoid lifting weights?
Not necessarily: There are a number of potential causes, so you might want to be seen for a specific diagnosis before giving up something you enjoy. One of the more common causes is crepitance, which is often associated with early softening of the cartilage in the joints. In that case you would probably want to modify your workout to avoid excessive load bearing on the joints involved. ...Read more
Sure: Plenty of excellent books on this as well as online advice. Find "new rules of lifting" for a start. Also many personal trainer options to get you started. Some gyms/clubs offer a free session. Check Around. Good LUck. ...Read more
Very unlikely. I can: Not think of reason for that happening. ...Read more
Yes: Disc herniation can occur secondary to overloading its weight bearing capabilities as a disc is designed for carrying & distributing load as well as allowing for motion. Sometimes it is not just the amount of weight lifted but the incorrect way it was done or even related to a repetition mode of failure. Conditioning or lack of may also play a role as can muscle fatigue placing more load on disc. ...Read more
