    Unless youre getting rhabdo... youre probably fine.

    If the pain lasts a couple days its fine, your body needs to adapt. If you go back the next week and do it again it wont hurt for as long.

    Now if the pain lasts 4 or 5 days and you start to see significant swelling in the muscle, go see a doctor. Mind you rhabdo is caused by extremely high repitition wokrouts, think 100's of pushups in a single workout.

    Hey freaks (of the fitness persuasion...)

    I want to try running again. LSS.. I haven't done it for a very (20 years+) long time. I have excessive pronation causing plantar fascia pain.

    I've seen some encouraging videos on low dye taping, and I'm not adverse to spending up to $150 on the proper shoes.

    Here's my question... would you start out running on a treadmill rather than pavement?

    TIA

    Fell off the wagon pretty hard, and am just getting back into working out. Starting with just pushups to get back some of the muscle (I can't lift due to a disability) and am probably going to get some running shoes this week to get back into jogging. The goal is to get back some of my muscles in my arms and lose the weight in my stomach. Here are my questions:

    1. I workout before breakfast, about 20 minutes calisthenics like squats, pushups, leg lifts ect. Should I be eating some carbs with breakfast to help put on muscle? My usual breakfast is 3-6 eggs, 5-7 slices of bacon, and a bowl of spinach.

    2. I drink alot of water throughout the day, but don't eat regularly. Some days just one meal. Should I be eating more smaller meals, or focus on eating less. Not sure where to start after @Promethea 's thread on starvation. I'm fine with one or two meals a day and drinking lots of water by the way. Just wondering what the best route to go is.


    Other information that might be helpful:

    5'3. 130lbs. Workout before breakfast in the morning, and jog a mile at night. Thanks in advance everyone.

    Your breakfast has a lot of protein so I don't think you have to change something in your routine, except maybe a small carb snack before for less fatigue, but I'm not 100% sure about that.
    If you want to put on muscles, you have to avoid catabolic phases, so you have to eat regularly (every 2-3 hours). It's very important because during catabolism, a small amount of muscle will be used to maintain glucose levels in the blood, so this will probably hinder your ability to put on muscle in the end. Also, it might be difficult to eat a surplus of calories if you only have 1-2 meals, so separating them in smaller meals throughout the day will help in that. I don't know if there are studies that show that meal frequency is not relevant to muscle building as long as you eat all that you need to build them, maybe someone can verify that.

    Have you talked to your doctor about this?

    Have you talked to your doctor about this?
    About the condition of my feet and getting back into running? Yes.

    About whether to run on a treadmill or the pavement? No.

    I was kinda hoping I'd find a jogging guru who would sway me one way or the other. It seems like a treadmill would give less shock than running on pavement, but I've never tried it and didn't want to spend any money (even on a used one) before checking opinions.

    Is there a difference between doing 10 push ups fives times a day vs just doing 50 push ups once a day?

    Does excercising throughout the day rather then all at once matter? Is it bad? Good?

    Yes and no.

    It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Doing 10 pushups five times over the course of a day probably wont do much but it is work none the less. It is allowing you to get more reps and that will allow you to learn to do the movement better but doing 50 pushups in a row will help you gain more endurance but you more then likely wont be able to do this in the first place without working up to it.

    Working out a whole bunch at once will jump-start your metabolism and will burn fat longer over the course of a day. Your body continues to burn through the energy it has to replenish all the ATP you burned in an intense workout. If you are trying to lose fat, work out doing a high intensity interval session and keep your reps between 12-15; this is working to build up your lactic threshold which is your ability to clear the lactic acid as it builds up in your muscles. If you are working on getting stronger work on between 6-8 reps at first and as you get more confident with the reps and intensity, work up towards 3-5 reps. This will help you to induce hypotrophy which are the microscopic tears that help to build your muscles.

    My height/weight ratio is (I believe) in the normal range at 5'8/125 pounds, but I'm not happy with my figure, particularly fat around the love handles area. My eating habits admittedly are not the best, though the amount of calories I eat isn't super high - I'd say I average about 1300-1500 daily.

    I've tried adding in various exercises in addition to cutting calories even further, adding protein, etc, but I'm not getting results. Is there any advice you guys have in working to lose this fat? I'm not really looking for a number decrease or increase on the scale, but rather in having my lower back/hips be slimmer. I know the way to lose weight is to burn more calories than one consumes, but I still feel as though I'm missing something...
