1. its-your-kingdom-boo asked: I would like to have your opinion on my workout routine. So 4 days a week (in a row) I thought about doing cardio on the treadmill, walk 5 minutes run 10 minutes and then walk for another 5 minutes. On the next 4 days I would do 50 crunches, 20 sit ups, 20 push ups, 30 sec to 1 min plank and 50 flutter kicks, 30 sec to 1 min side plank. Do you think this is fine or should I add something else?

    Depends on your goal.  In my opinion it is a bit too much cardio and not enough lifting.  You’ll most likely end up looking more skinny than you will ‘tone.’  Also 50 crunches are too much.  Remember, muscle burns fat all day and while you sleep, running only burns fat at that moment.  Add a bit of weight lifting in that if you have access to it.

  2. Anonymous asked: I ran track and cross country in high school, so I was in pretty good shape, but since college I've but on a little fat in my mid section. I'm trying to lose some of thag fat, maybe get my abs back, and put on a little toned muscle. Any advice?

    Do some weight lifting and do similar things that you did during track season.  Have you seen D1 track athletes?  They are so shredded.

  3. Anonymous asked: So I lost alot of weight a few years ago and I maintained my workouts with dumbells, jogging and whatever else I could find that was physically demanding. At the time I was motivated since I saw results, little results but I could fit into my fav clothes again. I got a new job, very time consuming and I no longer have time to workout at all, even the motivation to workout has disappeared. So I deliberately walk to work to keep some level of fitness but Iv reached a Plateau. Any suggestions?

    Motivation is a tricky thing.  You are the only one that can motivate yourself, and some people do it differently.  Something that motivates me is finding a friend who wants to lift like crazy.  Sometimes it is just watching a simple Youtube video.  You just have to want it really, if it’s something you truly don’t desire then it’s hard to get motivated.

  4. Anonymous asked: I'm scared to run. I'm 17 perfectly healthy and there is nothing physically preventing me from being able to run with my friends in marathons or at school and have a good time with them but whenever I run for too long I start to have a panic attack because I'm scared I'm not going to be able to breath and then the panic attack is what causes me not to be able to breath properly because I'm freaking out too much. I don't know how to get rid of this fear?

    I don’t really know of any tips that could help this to be honest.  I would suggest talking to a doctor or a psychologist and see if they have any suggestions.

  5. Anonymous asked: Opinions on creatine? You've said many times that you think people start to early with it, so when do you (guys) think is the right time in terms of age and level of fitness, if that's not too vague?

    I would go about a year of consistent lifting before starting creatine.

  7. If you don’t go at least parallel or you let your knees shoot forward instead of sitting back during a squat, you’re an idiot.

  8. Anonymous asked: What's the most effective way to train if you only have time to go to the gym 3 days a week? Is it possible to gain significant amount of muscle when only training 3 days a week? (Work and studies occupy the rest of my days)

    A 3 day split would work well.  One day lift chest, shoulders, and triceps, another day legs, and finish off with back and biceps.  You can definitely gain a good amount of muscle with 3 days of training!

  10. Anonymous asked: recently i have noticed the weight i usually bench is much harder and i fear my form may be fucking up, but i dont wanna lower weight, should i lower the weight or just push through this stage? when i lower the weight my chest isnt as sore the next day though?

    Lower the weight just a bit and eat more.  You probably aren’t eating enough or something.  If you think you are, just lower the weight and continuously add on weight.  I increase weight on my bench every set.  My first set I start a 135lbs for 15 reps, and increase until I hit 215 for 6 reps.
