If I do squats (without weights) doing 10squats 3sets everyday when will I start to see results? I have very small butt and I want it bigger/plump
Maybe: You're on the right track. Look at volleyball players. They are running and jumping for hours at a time. Small size is mostly genetic, so you're going to have to accept the basic frame that you have been given; however, you can sculpt what you have. All the exercise in the world won't give you a j-lo rear end if you're not programmed to be shaped that way. ...Read more

Muscle building: Deep squats, walking lunges with weights and hip thrusts will all help to build gluteal muscles if done properly and supplemented with increased protein/calorie intake. Fat will also increase the apparent size of your gluteus muscles. The key is to add muscle without losing too much fat and this requires adequate caloric intake in addition to moderate to heavy weight lifting. ...Read more

Recently my left knee has started to pop and burn/discomfort when I squat at the gym or in general. What could cause this? Advice? No previous injury
Catching at knee randomly then small popping sound... numbness right above knee... minimal to no pain happened after doing a large number of squats.
The most usual cause: Of painless popping in the knee is when the ligaments and tendons catch as they move over a bony spot in the joint and pop when they snap back into place. Sometimes the catching and popping results from actual cartilage/meniscal damage. "A large number of squats" could contribute to this. The numbness may point to damage from injury as well. See a Sports Med specialist/Orthopedist for evaluation. ...Read more

Small section of large vein bulges out mid calf just to the side of shin bone when I put pressure on the leg especially when squatting. Getting worse?

Sadly, once a vein is damaged, it will not go back to normal. Some treatments can help, but trying to avoid things that make it worse is critical. Support hose (which men often use - joe namath!) can also help. 25 is young for them, but they can happen. Get checked to be sure. ...Read more

Are you breathing?: When we exert ourselves as such, we tend to hold our breath, stabilizes the core and helps us with the heavy lift. But that pressure build-up can give us a headache.
