    So, what would be a way to get back in shape and all of that ? are they some "soft" programs I could get into and then increasing the difficulty as the time goes on ?

    I thought that swimming and doin some elliptical bike would be a good start. I ve downloaded the "7" app on smartphone as it seem to be good too

    Awesome that you're getting back into it! Stamina you lose incredibly quickly unfortunately :/
    Swimming and biking are ace for stamina, and jogging is another.

    With swimming, I recommend 1,2,3,4,5 or however else you'd like to do this (it's customizable). One length, then rest. then do two (there and back) and so on up to five, then go down. So start with 5, then do 4... you get the idea.

    This is a good one for building up jogging/ general stamina: The 8-Week Beginner's Program | Runner's World
    It gets you to run at your own pace, the aim is to be able to run 2 miles comfortably without stopping in 30 minutes. Seems a bit pathetic sounding to some ("only 2 miles?!") but it really does help! You could also apply this to your bike as you'd be able to keep the speed you would running on your bike.

    I'm hoping I explained this okay, if I haven't and you'd like me to explain better or elaborate then let me know ^^

    Hey, you guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuysssssssss


    Can anyone give me some recommendations for beginner-intermediate yoga videos? I'm having trouble finding any that suit my skill level. A few of the beginner one's were way too easy for me, but outside of that, I'm in no way Mr.Elastic-man.

    Yeah, kind of an offbeat question, but I think this could be in the fitness section.

    How does a person learn to adapt decently to more extreme temperatures? I have to be at around 63-73 degrees F (assuming I'm in a T-shirt and pants, I run pretty warm yeah). Hotter than that is uncomfortable, and above 80 I have a good chance of getting a migraine (and stuffy sinuses for some reason; heat does that), and generally feeling like shit. And any colder than that is also uncomfortable without warmer clothes.

    You'd think exposure to warmer temperatures would help, but given I'm having a four-day migraine from the heat (we're barely into the 80s), it clearly didn't, and it's still pretty unpleasant, while most people are fine in this weather. I always had issues sharing an AC'ed room with people because they're shivering in their long sleeves and I'm mildly warm in my shirt (no, not overweight). So I suppose building heat resistance is more of a priority.

    I see these Muslim women completely covered up, and in black clothes, and not even looking like they're sweating?? I'd fucking die.

    Is it okay if I eat Kraft Dinner? I know it's not the greatest thing for me, but am I sealing my fate for future health concerns or anything?

    I have a really high metabolism, and I seem to burn through calories quickly, I am moderately active.

    The thing is, I normally wouldn't eat it, but I have been a lot more lately because it really fills up a lot, and gives me lots of energy, which is honestly more then I can say for most foods.

    It's really weird.

    Also, I don't feel so hungry throughout the day

    This is just something that just went away for me, for some strange reason.

    I used to be extremely sensitive to weather, now I'm pretty good at blocking it out.

    Drink lots of water and remember to be properly hydrated
    I think that being at least somewhat properly nourished and eating good food helped quite a bit
    and also just being in better shape seemed to help me for some reason(where as before, I was really lazy, scrawny and had very poor physical conditioning)

    and also just I think, mind over matter; you just have to keep pushing through it, and eventually you'll be able to block it out more easily without even really noticing you're doing it.

    How do I gain muscle on my triceps? I work out 3-4 times a week, and my trouble spots are my triceps (they still jiggle and I don't know why!) and my abdominals. I want to get abs, but I don't think I'm doing the right workouts for abs? People always say that abs are 80% diet and 20% exercise, but is there any truth to that?

    Any help is appreciated!

    For triceps, do dips. I'm actually not sure about abs, though I think planks are a pretty good exercise.. at least for strength. Diet is probably key to aesthetic quality on that one.

    Unfortunately, that's about right. Because even if you built up a 6 (or an 8) pack there, you'd have to have relatively low body fat for it to be visible. I noticed skinny people that aren't even that athletic physically can look like they have more muscle than thicker people who actually have more muscle, since there's less fat covering it up.

    K, I wanna look great and feel awesome, as the thread says.
    Soooo, I'm thin, exercise every other day + often ride a bike or go jogging, eat five regular meals that provide the right amount of calories for me, or at least I think so, eat 'em slowly and without a rush, very rarely consume veggies that cause bloating, don't have constipation - heh - don't chew lots of chewing gum, but try to eat yogurt more often... all those are advised when you have belly bloating, which I probably suffer from. I've noticed that in the morning everything is fine, but then, the more I eat, the bigger stomach I get. Also, it occurs mostly when I have milk & cereal for breakfast (understandable but annoying) or at weekends, when dinner is at home and not in school - my parents make bigger meals and I sadly can't do anything about it, though they aren't that big anyway.
    Any ideas? Maybe some of you had / have the same problem? Nobody wants to go with me to the doctor, so yeah. xD
