Paul asks…

Do women find building muscle mass as unpleasant?

I didn’t know if women really didn’t want to have big muscles or because it is against the typical social norms for female repression.

The Expert answers:

Well i think if we had big muscles we might show up the guys. =) However, i go to the gym and workout regularly and i have muscles. They’re more toned than anything but i think big muscles on women look intimidating. Hope this helped!

Charles asks…

does the shake weight for women help build muscle?

Im a cheerleader and since i back-spot I need to gain upper body strength. Does the Shake Weight for women build muscle or does it just define the muscle you already have?
Thanks!

The Expert answers:

The shake weight is a scam – it really doesn’t work

Jenny asks…

What are some good muscle building exercises for women?

I need to gain weight according to my doctor, although I look healthy. I am going to add more healthy fats and protein to my diet but I would like to gain more muscle than fat so I am looking for simple but effective exercises I can do quickly every day. Any suggestions for different kinds of push-ups, sit-ups, or other workouts not involving weight lifting would be greatly appreciated.

The Expert answers:

With toes, or knees, on the ground is the simplest way of doing push-ups. Try elevating your feet with a chair, stool, or even the wall. The more your feet are elevated the more the exercise shifts from the chest muscles to the shoulders. For abs, lay on your back & lift your legs, while up spread your feet, hold for a couple of seconds, then bring them together, then down for a second. Then repeat. Do each set until exhausted & do 3 sets. You might try running & cycling to build up the leg muscles.

Joseph asks…

How do women build muscle?

I know guys build muscle by using heavy weights and doing low sets. Is it the same for women or is it better to do more sets with lighter weight?

The Expert answers:

It is not as easy for women to build muscles as men.
If you are taking about toning up and strengthening those muscles, you need to use weights.
Not Light, not heavy, but challenging for your body.
You need first (when you start) to choose a weight that is not very heavy but you will get tired after carrying it for 15 repetitions for 3 sets.Then, after 2-3 weeks, increase the weight to something you can do just 6-9 reps and start the challenge to do 15 rep for 3 sets.
Women will not have huge muscles like men unless they are using steroids or whatever because we simply don’t have the Testerone hormone
but weights will definitely tone up your muscles and in a very short time.
I would recommend, if possible, if you are not already in a gym, join one that has classes that combine cardio with weights (body pump, body conditioning) so you are under instructor so you don’t hurt yourself.
You need to challenge your muscles and they need to feel tired ,a lot of light weights will not make such a difference, btw , good weights exercise is able to make your muscles burn fat even after you finish.
And yes, you need a lot of protein, you will feel that you can eat the fridge if you dont feed your muscles with chicken breast, beans, eggs , cheese ….etc
Good Luck

Chris asks…

muscle building for women? Any benefits?

I am 34 yr old female, trying to go on muscle building. Are there any benefits in indulging such activity beside the muscles.

The Expert answers:

Most women who wants to build muscle are simply trying to gain some weight so that they look a little healthy and get rid of their skinny bodies. Its very much possible to build and tone your muscles to look fitter and more defined naturally. No matter how hard you try women will never build muscle like men do. Your aim to build and tone muscles to look athletic, firm and fit. If you want to build serious muscle you need to learn the basics and apply them. Exercise activity that complements your nutrition program by helping to maintain low body fat and the maintenance and enhancement of muscle.

The Best Muscle Building Exercises remain the same as those for men.

Mary asks…

Body Mass Index on children?

My younger brother (12, nearly 13) has a body mass index of 16.67, which is classified as underweight. My whole family are very against him being underweight-they are constantly trying to make him eat more and build up some muscles.
Does BMI work on younger children, so is this correct that he is underweight? (He’s quite tall for his age, 5″2, well taller than most of his friends, and has quite a large bone structure, doesn’t appear underweight or sickly)

And if he is underweight, he is not bulemic (sorry, i can’t spell!) and eats much more than me, the same amount as my 16 year old brother in fact, and does sports about 3 times a week, if he is underweight, is there much i should do?

Thankyou.

The Expert answers:

Body Mass Index calculators work accurately for all ages. If your parents feel that it is unhealthy for him to be underweight they should take your brother to a pediatrician. But first it would be good to find out if he takes any medications. Sometimes they can interfere with weight.

Daniel asks…

Can body mass index be used for children or adolescents as well as adults?

The Expert answers:

Yes. See this website: http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/bmi/

Ken asks…

I did a BMI (body mass index) calculator online, and it says I have a BMI of 12.9, is this bad?

I did it on a .gov website and it said this;

Results
Based on the height and weight entered, the BMI is 12.9, placing the BMI-for-age below the 1st percentile for girls aged (Age edited out, you don’t need to know how old I am). This child is underweight and should be seen by a healthcare provider for further assessment to determine possible causes of underweight.
Well, I’m about twelve so yes, I’m still growing…

I think I’m very skinny but not like… anerexic skinny.

The Expert answers:

12.9 is dangerously low, malnutrition has got to be an issue here, not to mention other life threatening potential complications. It is very bad, and you need medical treatment.

Richard asks…

Anyone familiar with BMI (body mass index)?

My nephew is in the third grade. I’m not sure of his height, but he is tall for his age. He weighs 67lbs. He is waring a size 10 slim. The school checks the weight and height of each child every year unless the parent signes a form stating that they do not want their childs BMI checked. This year they sent a paper home to my brother and his wife stating that their son was over weight! Can you believe that?! My nephew now thinks he needs to diet! They are having a hard time explaining to him that this is not true. He is not over weight. What kind of message is this sending our kids? The school my children attend has started checking BMI too. I have signed a form stating that I don’t wish to perticipate. My children are not over weight and see their pediatrician on a regular basis for check-ups. If their is a weight problem, I feel that it is between their pediatrician and me. What do you think?
Another thing that I forgot to mention is that he has severe asthma. He was born 2 months early. He has to take breathing treatments every day. There is NO WAY this child should even think of dieting! Especially with his health problems.
I talked to my sis-n-law. They did sign the form stating they did not want to perticipate. But the school checked his BMI anyway. What’s up with that?!

The Expert answers:

I think you are absolutely right! I think that the schools/gov. Are taking too much control from the parents. If our children are overweight, we, as parents, realize this. In addition, BMIs are not a good prediction of a child’s future weight. I was underweight as a child, yet have definitely overcome that! I have heard that some places are about to stop BMI checks, and I hope that this is true. Our children have enough problems trying to cope with their changing bodies, why add more stress by telling them that they are overweight???

Mandy asks…

Testing students for there body-index?

In Massachusetts school will now be testing students for there bodymass index‘s and sending the results home in an effort to make parents aware that there child maybe be obese. They will also be doing this to get some percentages on childhood obesity. Do you think its right that they could do this? Im kind of underweight and not worried about it but i do feel as if my privacy is at stake and i think people are getting too into our lives, what do you think?

The Expert answers:

It the parents weren’t stupid enough to let their children become obese this wouldn’t be an issue.

Laura asks…

What is the best legal supplement for men to build lean muscle mass?

Dont want to buy anything with side-effects.

The Expert answers:

Whey protein and low weight with many reps, anything else will have side effects, but usually if taken too much

Ruth asks…

What supplements will help with building muscle mass?

I am a powerlifter and have done pretty well building muscle on my own so far but was wondering if anyone knew of any supplements (for women or ok for both men and women) that would help me along in this.

The Expert answers:

You have to eat more to build mass. It’s that simple. Try complex carbs and protein. Whey protein is best taken right after or just before your workout. Also you can try creatine, which pushes more water into your muscles and allows you to work out longer.

You probably aren’t building mass BECAUSE you are a powerlifter.

Powerlifters are generally relatively small given the amount of weight they lift. Powerlifters focus on getting the maximum out of a few reps and generally train with heavy weights for a few reps.

Endurance athletes do the opposite. They train with light weights and many reps to build endurance in the fast-twitch muscle fiber.

You need to work in the middle to actually build mass. Concentrate on 3 sets of weights that you can left 8-10 times with good form.

Also, genetics plays a role and some people with fast metabolism have a hard time gaining mass.

Sharon asks…

What are some muscle building products for an average working man that does not have endless hours to workout?

I’m a family man and I would like to build lean muscle mass to my body. I’m 6’3″/235lbs but I would like to be more ripped and muscular. I don’t have 2 and 3 hours a day to work out because I have other things going on with my children and family.

The Expert answers:

Whoever told you to workout 2-3 hours is stupid, you only need 45minutes or an hour max.

The only ones you need is whey protein, and if you want a extra helper creatine. LOOK UP TWINMUSCLEWORKOUT ON YOUTUBE, those guys give real advice and are funny. Take there adivce because it works, i lift myself and watch there videos for fun, everything they say works because i have tried most of it myself.

Mandy asks…

Mark asks…

How many Calories, Protein, and Carbs for Building Muscle Mass?

I have been working out for a few weeks. I do 30 min of weight lifting 3 times a week with days in between. I drink a 20g protein shake before and after. I am up to lifting 15-20 lbs (it is the most I can lift with good posture right now). I am a man, 22, 170lbs, 6 foot. I work at a computer all day, so I am usually at a desk unless I am weight lifting for those 30 min at home. My question is, how many Calories, grams of Protein, and Carbs should I be taking in each day? I know I should probably be eating a couple meals too, how many would be best?

The Expert answers:

A rule of thumbs is 1 to 2 grams of protein per lb of body weight. So, you need at least 170 grams of protein. Usually, you’ll see bodybuilders eating ~100 g of good fats, 500-600 g of carbs, and ~200 g of protein. It’s really important that you have intense workouts so most the carbs you take in afterward are used to replenish your glucose instead of being converted to triglycerides and stored as fat. This is why you see heavy supplement use, especially creatine usage. Bodybuilding are trying to get the most out of their workouts.

Lizzie asks…

Why is the BMI (body mass index) for weight the same for men and women?

shouldnt it be a less for women?
this doesnt make any sense.
ie;
http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/body_weight/healthy_weight/chart.htm

– can you give me one or a weight chart just for women?
its strange that i cant find one specifically for women on the internet.
when its concerning health so much, they sould really have a seperate chart.

The Expert answers:

The BMI system is misleading. It just tells you basically.. Hmm. Wel let’s see.. Your Body mass index. Aka your height in relation to your weight. It is a very rough idea of what you are really made of.

There is no logical indication to whether you are overweight, normal or underweight. You need to get skin fold tests done in order to determine if you are overweight or underweight.

BMI is simply a man-made construct using the ratio of height to weight, so it is the same for both sexes.

Jenny asks…

Can anyone justify why the desired Body Mass Index (BMI) is the same for men and women of the same height?

The Expert answers:

It is pretty ridiculous isn’t it…it doesn’t take frame size, muscle mass or anything into consideration. There are many more accurate ways to know if you are unhealthy…that is just a VERY basic guideline.

Sharon asks…

Should I do a full body workout during my days off from a running program?

I am starting a running program next week and have been doing the legs, glutes, abs, back and arms workouts on Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012, a fitness game for Kinect/XBOX 360, to prepare. Can I do the running program Monday, Wednesday, Friday and my “full body” workout Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and rest Sunday safely?

The Expert answers:

You can…
Really depends on your goal. Bit of a waste if you are trying to build muscle as your body needs time to recover. Not to mention the speed at which you’ll probably burn yourself out altogether.

Susan asks…

Does zumba fitness dvds work on xbox360?

my bf has an xbox 360 and i want to know if the dvds work because if they dont i can go ahead and buy a dvd players.

The Expert answers:

Yes, you can enjoy you zumba fitness DVDs on your bf’s xbox360, and there are some improvements to your xbox360.
First off, the Xbox 360 plays DVD movies right out of the box. You don’t have to purchase anything extra to watch them. You control everything with the Xbox 360 controller or an optional remote.

The second improvement is that the Xbox 360 plays movies in progressive scan (480p). If you have an HDTV or an EDTV, you’ll get a much sharper picture when you watch movies with your Xbox 360.

It has to be noted, however, that the Xbox 360 shouldn’t really be used as a primary DVD player. A dedicated DVD player offers more features, better image and sound quality, and you can get a decent one with progressive scan for around $50. The Xbox 360 works as a DVD player in a pinch, but I recommend getting a real DVD player if you plan on watching a lot of movies.

George asks…

Which is better: PS3, Wii or Xbox 360?

Which is better: PS3, Wii or Xbox 360? I want to know which game system is better and why its better in your opinion. I’m trying to get active and the best way i can think is to get some fitness games and a game console but I’m unsure which one to get. I want to lose the weight i already have and when i lose the weight keep it off.

The Expert answers:

Depends on the person. If you are just a weekend warrior who doesn’t really play that much buy a PS3 for free membership, but if you play frequently then xbox is for sure better. Xbox has a better online and the mics are actually bearable to listen to. Talking to friends is easier and I have more fun on xbox then on PS3. In my opinion Kinect is better then move. The kinect games are fun and actually make exercising fun.

Steven asks…

Where do you find Xbox 360 DEMO games you have already downloaded?

I downloaded 2 demo games from my Xbox 360 and I can’t find it anywhere. Does they expire after you have played them?

I wanted my husband to try out the racing game because he likes games like that.

Charles asks…

Should I get a PS3 or will it affect My Studies/Fitness.?

Well, When I had a Xbox 360 I was addicted very & it made me very fat. I sold it because I got forced to as it affected My Weight/Studies.

Now I Have 2 more years of School left & I Live by myself, I want to chat/play with my mates like I used on Black Ops. Now, I’m Exercising & trying to get fit but My Studies are still going shit & have gotten worse. The only better thing is my fitness has improved & I’m skinny now, So will it affect anything or not? Should I get it or Not?

I just want to personally know if I should & if you guys are fat or if it affects your studies?

The Expert answers:

Studies/being fit/playing are just a thing of how do you organize your time

make yourself a schedule and you’ll be okay, this schedule must be always update (exams and other thing that may require more time) this will only take about 15 minutes a week, and you’ll be fit, do better in your exams, and play

do this even if you don’t buy the ps3, it helps A LOT to have a schedule

William asks…

Fitness plan for me to get abs?

Hi! I’ve been working hard trying to get abs, but to no prevail. I make up my own workouts, but not knowing if I’m doing the right things is a problem, so I’m turning to all you guys!
Age: 15 1/2
Weight: 123ish
Height: 5’7ish

For a while I was doing 100 crunches every night, then I started increasing by 50 every night At 500 I stopped and the next night I only did 250, then the next night only 100. Tonight I only did 75, but they were slow crunches vs the fast ones I’ve been doing. I’m asking anyone with help creating a fitness plan for me. I have an exercise bike, but nothing else. Oh and I also do 20 “girl” push ups every night (the ones on your knees) I dont have access to very healthy food. My day’s food intake is basically like this:
No breakfast,
Lunch: A chocolate chip chewey bar and every once in a while fruit snacks,
At home: I snack a lot, and really unhealthy things. Like ramen, bacon bits, chocolate chips.
Dinner: Either soup or nothing.

I know, my diet SUCKS. But I do the best with what I’ve got! So, I’m mostly looking to get a flat stomach with slight ab definition, and I’d also like to reduce the size of my thighs and arms. Thanks for any help!

The Expert answers:

The best way to get abs is by doing lots of cardio, such as bicycling, speedwalking, running. Crunches will only tone your abs. Try to squeeze in some weightlifting every other day. If you don’t own free weights, you can lift canned goods. Your pushups is good, try to see if you can do regular pushups.

Any way you can ask your dad to buy some fruits and veggies? Choose your favorite fruit and veggie for him to get you (I love blueberries, which help curb tummy fat). Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water as well.

Your Questions About Fitness

Laura asks…

How does exercise science apply to the various aspects of wellness and physical fitness?

The Expert answers:

Your question is extremely broad. We know that diet, exercise, and controlling stress are they keys to wellness. There are a huge number of different types of exercises you can do.

Here is my advice: Find at least one, but even better, two or three types of exercises you really love to do. (If you don’t love ’em, you won’t keep it up over the long run.) For me, I love to play and ref soccer, play competitive table tennis, and hike. Because I love to do them, I always get at least three days a week of good exercise, and often the number is more like five or six days a week. You get it? 🙂

You can walk, bike, dance, do yoga, vigorous gardening or housework, etc., if you are not a competitive or team sports type of person or “extreme” sports type person. The key is to get yourself up and moving, and doing something you love to do.

You’ll feel better and look better and be happier as a result. 🙂

Richard asks…

thinking of becoming a nutritionist, what majors should i consider?

my college doesn’t offer a Nutrition major, but it does have:

Health Studies (BS)
-concentration in community health
-concentration in school health

Physical Education with many concentrations:
Exercise Science/Health Fitness concentration
-Recreation
-many others, but they don’t seem relevant to nutrition

could i major in any of these and be accepted into a masters program to be a nutritionist?

May I suggest that you become a registered dietitian? See link below for more information. Look at the admission requirements for master’s level programs to be sure that you take all necessary prerequisites.

Lizzie asks…

HUMAN KINETICS/KINESIOLOGY/EXERCISE SCIENCE QUESTION?

What is an undergrad in Human Kinetics/Kinesiology like?
I applied and got accepted into Human Kinetics, which I’m really excited about because I love biology type topics and learning about the human body and how it works, etc! I’m going to accept the offer soon, but I’m starting to get all worried about the program… The only thing that makes me nervous is if I will have to do a lot of things that will require me to be very physically active… I know they do a lot of labs and stuff, and I am not even remotely CLOSE to having the fitness level of an athlete. Do you have to do labs where you run or work out and stuff?

Any advice you have would really be appreciated… I’m so nervous over this!

The Expert answers:

I did my undergrad in regular biology, so I don’t know anything specific about kinesiology programs. You might do the occasional lab where activity is required, but you won’t have to be an athlete. In those labs, you certainly wouldn’t be graded on performance. I’m fairly certain that sort of thing would be illegal… Kind of like penalizing a student in a wheelchair for not being able to use a microscope on a high lab bench.

When I took physiology as an undergrad, we did do the occasional lab with physical activity. It was pretty mild, though. We had to go up and down stairs to get our heart rate up, but it’s not like we had to run, and our actual performance didn’t matter. Data is data, after all, and it’s just as valid when it comes from an athlete as when it comes from someone who is out of shape.

Linda asks…

Will an Occupational Therapy clinic hire occupational therapy technicians, not assistants?

I know a technician differs in that they are not certified, but have shadowing experience and at times a bachelors degree.

I will be graduating with my bachelors in Human fitness & performance with a focus in exercise science, along with my pre-reqs for OT school, is there a chance I would get hired?

The Expert answers:

I had an occupational repetitive motion injury since September and I first saw the physical therapist and since then I see the technician and the PT a couple times, but mostly the tech. It seems to me that there are three physical therapists in the office and about 5 technicians. So, yes, you can get hired.

I know I write a lot but this is like my dream, I do not allow myself to ever eat over 1,000 calories a day, usually less.

The Expert answers:

I am a guy, so I am not the most qualified on answering how to look like a victoria’s secret model haha. But I can promise you that you are doing WAY to much cardio…you should be looking to do less, not more. This has nothing to do with being lazy or not. Some days you listed you were doing like three hours of cardio…and you are looking to add to that? That is crazy. It is obvious you really want this, so I don’t think you need an motivation. You need some demotivation.

I am 170 pounds and my abs are showing at the moment, so I like to say I know what I am talking about. All I did in terms of cardio was just walk an hour before breakfast. If you are trying to loose fat, it is ALL about diet. You listed healthy foods, but that is only part of it. Maybe I missed it since you typed a lot, but I don’t think you listed your calories. Do you track how many you eat per day? This is honestly more important than what you eat.

Anyways, good luck. Hope you got a little bit of help out of this.

The Expert answers:

Note being that young may mean your not able to loose weight yet your body is in high levels of development and pushing yourself in high levels of stress can make you gain weight
however YOU yourself need to see your family doctor.. Don’t really take advise from anyone else cos your doctor should know the best solution.. Make sure you explain everything about your health to him/her to ensure they get a good idea of how they can help you

Helen asks…

Am I doing the right amount of workout? Professionals please look!?

Hi and thanks for your attention to my question.

I started working out back in June, and ever since then I am improving by A LOT. I am much stronger, and am able to hold a much better stamina.
My question, am I doing what I am suppose to be, as compared to my age? Are there any risks? Here are my details:

I am 16 years old, 5″4. Before I started working out, I was 145lbs. After almost 4 months, I am now 172lbs. My height is still the same, or maybe a inch taller I am not sure. I workout 4 days a week, and for about an hour. I first start off with a 20 minutes bicycle cardio, which aprox. burns about 100-120 calories depending on my current feeling. I try not to drink water so that I can increase my stamina, which I am able to hold off for 15 minutes. After that I lift 100 pounds for quadriceps, 85 for triceps, 100 in seated row machine, 50 in bicep curls, 70 for chest press, and 85 for another chest exercise I cant remember the name of equipment.
I do 10-15 pushups in between randomly. I do 2 sets of 15 reps for each equipment, but specially for quadriceps and seated row machine I do 3 sets of 15 reps.

Again, I do this whole workout on any random 4 days of a week, depending on my school schedule and the period of muscles relief, when they are very very soar.

Am I doing what I am suppose to be doing? Are there any risks if I continue this routine in the future? And also I usually increase the weights for each equipment by 5lbs after every 2 days.

Please give me detailed answers, answers that show your knowledge of fitness. And feel free to give me any tips, or any thing I need to change.
OK I see the reason for the lack of education around the world. Maybe SOMEONE didn’t bother to read the fucking question and just spit out a link that offers me herbal tea for fitness? For sake RTFQ! (read the f*cking question).
OK Thats a relief to hear that I have gained muscle mass. I will try to lower my reps and do more sets.
Wow again, another two links that are offering me products for loosing weight? DUDES!! I do NOT wish to get slim and all that crap.

The Expert answers:

What is your target? Are you trying to be as strong as you possibly can be? Are you trying to hold an average weight with a good physique? Minimize body fat and increase muscle mass?

Judging by your height, weight, and regimen, I don’t think you really fall into any target category. If you are that short (sorry, but you are) and weigh that much, and if that’s all I knew and you considered yourself fit… I would assume that you have some serious muscles, and are lifting at least twice the weight you are now.

It seems like you are trying to be overall fit – high stamina, low body fat, and above average strength and tone (but not bodybuilder status). You should be doing much more cardio… Try sprints, you could even incorporate lifting in your cardio – try piling up about 10 bags of sand, maybe 25 pounds each outside. Sprint one bag 20 meters away and set it down, sprint back and pick up another one and sprint it to the other pile you started. Break and rehydrate, then do it again… 4-5 times. This will burn fat and increase muscle mass in your legs, and even tone abs, arms, chest and back.

When you are lifting, you should be increasing the weight in each set. Then after a week start at a higher weight. You should consistently push yourself to lift heavier. 4x a week is plenty. You could even get away with 3. 2 days in a row is probably the most you should do consecutively… It’s important to give your muscles a break.

Your reps are too high and your sets are too few. Try four sets of 10 reps with each exercise. The first 2 at one weight, the second two ate a higher weight. You should barely be able to push up the last rep in the last set. Try isolating two muscle groups in a workout rather than trying to work out all of your muscles at once. One day focus on biceps and triceps, another chest and back, and the other legs and shoulders. This is a good regimen to work opposing muscle groups – try three different exercises for each muscle group, simultaneously working in abs, and also work in the cardio at the beginning to help burn the fat. Break in between exercises, and even small breaks in between sets to rehydrate and stretch if needed.

As you burn energy, you will feel like you need more, so you may eat more. You should eat more protein to build on the muscle mass. You should not eat more fat. Fruit, veggies, carbs, protein, lots of water, low sugar, low fat… This should be a guideline for your diet. Carbs and protein in the morning, carbs and protein at lunch, mostly protein at dinner (or after workout) fruit and veggies and water throughout the day. Consume more calories in the morning than at night (or when you wake up rather than when you go to bed).

These are general guidelines I use to help people lower body fat, build lean muscle, increase stamina, and overall feel healthier. So to summarize:

-Low reps, 4 sets, high weight
-Isolate muscle groups, and focus on only a couple each workout
-Rotate ab exercises in each workout
-Include cardio with optional weight training cardio in each exercise
-Maintain a constantly healthy, diet (high protein if building muscle)
-Plenty of water

George asks…

Fitness question for men?

Does anyone know a good way to build up the chest?
I can’t use free weights like dumbbell flys or bench press, etc
I can only use machine presses and flys, and cables.

I’m 16, 6’1, 155 pounds
I usually work on chest 3 times a week.

Usually I do 3 sets of 8 reps of butterfly press, then the same for chest press, incline chest press, and a seated cable pull thing ( I don’t know the name). Usually after I’m done with the 12 sets, I try to repeat them, but I usually don’t have enough energy to complete the sets.

I usually take a protein shake, isopure mass, 10-20 mins. after workout

I have been going to the gym for about a year now, and I am really frustrated, because I haven’t SEEN any improvement, although I am stronger. I still look very thin and scrawny. Are there other things I should do to build a bigger chest? different supplementation, or certain nutrition, different exercises, different timing/number of sets/reps, etc.?

Thanks!

The Expert answers:

Don’t neglect the legs and back. Big multi-joint exercises help to add slabs of muscle almost everywhere.

For now, leave the isolation exercises out of the equation – big presses and pulling movements are what add the muscle- the assistance exercises are more about sculpting and shaping that muscle what you have.

Pick a few big exercises, lift heavy and progressively, plenty of rest, plenty of good food, and you’re done.

Your Questions About Fitness

Sharon asks…

Did God know that Satan was going to go after Adam & Eve: and did he know Adam & Eve would fail him in the end?

The Expert answers:

Selective foreknowledge means that God could choose not to foreknow indiscriminately all the future acts of his creatures. This would mean that, rather than all history from creation onward being a mere rerun of what had already been foreseen and foreordained, God could with all sincerity set before the first human pair the prospect of everlasting life in an earth free from wickedness. His instructions to his first human son and daughter to act as his perfect and sinless agents in filling the earth with their offspring and making it a paradise, as well as exercising control over the animal creation, could thus be expressed as the grant of a truly loving privilege and as his genuine desire toward them—not merely as the giving of a commission that, on their part, was foredoomed to failure. God’s arranging for a test by means of “the tree of the knowledge of good and bad” and his creation of “the tree of life” in the garden of Eden also would not be meaningless or cynical acts, made so by his foreknowing that the human pair would sin and never be able to eat of “the tree of life.”—Ge 1:28; 2:7-9, 15-17; 3:22-24.

If you want to learn more about this topic, please feel free to contact Jehovah’s witnesses for a free home Bible study in your local place.

Thank you and good day.

Carol asks…

why did God make the tree of good and knowledge if he knew that adam and eve would eat from it?

isnt that a setup so God str8 up set us up to fail.i still love God

The Expert answers:

There are two trees in the garden. These two trees have more than a literal meaning. We are told that The tree of knowledge of good and evil is forbidden.
The day Adam eats of it he will surely die.
The tree of life is also in the midst of the garden if they eat of it they will live forever.
These two trees are obviously more than trees.
What is the knowledge of good and evil?
Where could a man gain knowledge of good and evil?
We get our knowledge of good and evil from God.
The law that God sent down to Moses is the knowledge of good and evil.
Why would God’s righteous law kill man?
Because man could not live up to God’s righteousness.
It is also the reason there was a tree in the midst of the garden called the tree of life.
This is God’s mercy.
This story Moses tells is of he two natures of God his righteousness and his mercy.
It is the story of man and his fall from God’s glory and God’s plan of salvation.

God gave man the law knowing man could not live up to his righteousness.
The law was not to change a man it changed none.
The law revealed to man his lack of righteousness and his need for a Savior

When the Bible speaks of their nakedness it is referring to the fact they realized their sin.
They attempted to hide their nakedness with a leaf from the tree.. They atempted to make themselves appear righteous by the law.
God gave them animal skins to cover their nakedness.
God gave them the sacrifces to cover their sin.
The Bible is not simply literal it also has a depepr spiritual meaning.

Lizzie asks…

Why wouldn’t God want Adam and Eve to have knowledge of good and evil?

Did God setup Adam and Eve to fail? What’s wrong with knowledge?

The Expert answers:

God created angels and gave them freedom of choice so too did He give Adam and Eve freedom of choice. God is love and He wants us to love Him because we want too not because He makes us do it. No God didn’t set up Adam and Eve it was a test so to speak. Just as the faith of Christians today is tested to help it grow stronger and to love God at a deeper level. Also by telling them not to eat of the tree, they were given responsibility, something that many people don’t want to take for their own actions. As you see, Eve ate of the tree because she believed the serpents lies. Adam too ate of the tree knowing full well what would happen. Adam didn’t take responsibility for his own actions, he blamed Eve instead and consequently Eve blamed the serpent. Neither took responsibility. They didn’t heed God’s warning and they didn’t take Him at His word; that He means what He says and says what He means. Just as He warned Adam and Eve not to eat of the tree and what would happen if they did, they ate of it anyhow. So too God warns humanity today of the folly of sin yet few heed the warning. Because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve do to the subtle lies of the serpent, sin has filtered down throughout time and is still present today, more insidious than ever. The faith of the Christian is tested daily.
James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
God wants us to follow Him out of love and faith from our hearts so that’s why He put that tree in the midst of the garden.
Yes, God could make us mindless robots to follow Him but in order for Him to do that, He would have to take away our character, personality, ability to think act, see, hear, feel emotion, love, joy, peace, happiness, sorrow, laughter and our children would be the same way. I became aware of my sinful nature 34 years ago and I believed upon Jesus for my salvation. Although I live in a sinful world, I still enjoy all of the above emotions and more, not because I’m a zombie and not because God makes me do it, I enjoy all of these emotions and life in general because I choose too love and trust God; something Adam and Eve failed to do.

Richard asks…

What was God’s purpose for testing Adam and Eve?

He is omniscient, and knows the answer to every test prior to administering it. He knew Eve would fail, followed by Adam. He had the option to administer a different test, one that, in his omniscience, he knew they would be able to pass. He did not administer such a test, but allowed them to fail, as he knew they would.

So, one can only conclude that the test was for the only other minds in existence that could know the results – Adam and Eve themselves. The only logical reason that God could perform this test was to inform Adam and Eve.

So, what it boils down to, is this:

God creates Adam and Eve, then says, “Look how sinful you are.” Having informed them with this test, he proceeds to punish them as well, kicking them out of the garden, cursing them with labor and pain in childbirth.

All the while, God had the option to administer a different test.

It WAS a test:
God put the tree in the garden.
God ordered Adam NOT to eat it, thereby creating a chance for sin.
God allowed Satan into the garden to initiate the temptation, where instead he could have banished satan from Heaven AND the Garden.

So, why are we being punished for a test that God had such absolute control over?
I put thought and effort into the questions, dismissive answers are an insult…not to me, but to you.
This is not an attempt to disprove the existence of God. It is not a claim that I would have done different.

This is a request for an explanation that makes sense.
The specifics of the test are unimportant. The point is God had control over whether A&E passed or failed, and he failed them, apparently for their own knowledge. Why?

The Expert answers:

Free will

John asks…

Did Satan tempt Adam and Eve, or did God use Satan to tempt Adam and Eve?

Satan didn’t create the tree, he didn’t make the rules…he just used the framework set up by God.

God knew what he was doing…he knew Adam and Eve would sin. He knew putting the tree in the Garden would cause problems, and he did it anyway. He knew when he made the rule that it would be broken, but he made it anyway. He knew that by allowing Satan to enter the garden, Adam and Eve would be tempted, but he allowed it anyway.

In what way is God NOT responsible for sin? The choice was ultimately Eve’s to make, but really, she had no choice – God had set everything up such that she would fail, and drag Adam with her.
If it was simply a test, then why not use a test that DOESN’T result in the world going from eden to perpetual torture for all generations?

What was the purpose of the test? To inform Adam and Eve that they were terrible, sinful people? Seems rather sadistic.

The Expert answers:

I love this question. The inevitable response is: “God made them perfect, they chose to fall from grace!”

Now, how any sane person can rationalize a PERFECT being degrading into imperfection is beyond me. If it were perfect, it would have made the right choice. But it wasn’t. It was flawed, it was broke. It was a sinner, by design.

But then, the story is not real…so I suppose logic is a luxury.

The people who BELIEVE that Adam & Eve is a historical account will rationalize every aspect of it. They do not allow a single critical thought on the subject to enter their gray matter. They cordon off the areas of their brain that would scrutinize this stuff, and dismiss whatever inconsistency you point out as a product of YOUR inability to comprehend the story.

Ruth asks…

Does anyone know the price of a one time payment membership at 24 hour fitness?

I am interested in getting a membership at 24 hour fitness by just paying a chunk of change up front in order to be done with it. I really do hate dealing with the sales people there though and would like to get an idea of how much others have paid for a similar deal. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

The Expert answers:

How many months you want to pay up front? I got a deal from them through my work, and they pay for 29.99 a month. It was based on a one year plan, so that puts it at 359.88, but that was last year.

Ken asks…

Can I work at Abercrombie & Fitch and 24 Hour Fitness at the same time?

I want to work Part Time At abercrombie and fitch and part time at 24 hour fitness how do I work at both?

The Expert answers:

Yes, you can work two jobs at the same time. Just know that it requires more of your spare time and extra work, so be prepared and expect it. You should consider which company will be your primary job and set up an reasonable availability, maybe during the morning or night? Then give your secondary job an availability that is flexible around your other working days and tell them you have another job as well. Most companies can allow you to be fexible with your availability, depending on their demand of shift coverage and workers. Make sure that both companies have your schedules SET so that nothing is gets mixed up–or you might be scheduled to work on the same day, at the same time on both jobs. Not good. Give yourself two desired days off. You’ll need it.

And remember, this is your choice. If you do decide to have two jobs, you’ll need to make sacrifices. It’s can be pretty tough at times.

Good luck!
