Monday: 10 minute morning routine, 2 hours of gym class in the evening
Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: morning routine, a routine of resistance training plus some high intensity cardio inbetween if I am bored
Wednesday, Thursday: morning routine and an hour of martial arts trainingThere is a certain type of ketogenic diet that I am considering trying out at some point. For now, I am on a plan that a nutritionist recommended, which includes 2 high carb meals followed by one meal without any carbs and very little fat alltogether.if you want to burn some fat you need a caloric deficit first. then choose a routine with basic compound exercises: squat, bench, deadlifts, ohp. calculate your tdee, substract 250kcals and plan your meals (personally i love low carbs, high protein, high fat diets while cutting). for the routine you can get very nice results with madcow 5x5 or any other linear progression workout.
For some reason, I always have a hard time with calorie counting, since I either start treating calories like money, just spending as little as possible throughout the day to be prepared if something unexpected arises. That frequently made me collapse halfway through aikido. On the other hand, I also tend to stop eating proper "food", as I need to measure every bit and just live off fruits, vegetables and maybe some rice or noodles from time to time. Maybe there's someone who has a trick to get over this.
I'll also definitely look into the workout you suggested, thank you! I really apprechiate any recommendations.

So a few weeks ago I began a new job that involves mostly driving.. after a few days I realized that I didn't like driving the small box-like car they provide, because I was concerned about my health..
For some reason, the car bounces over even the most extremely minimal bumps.. it's not a smooth ride at all, and I'm just concerned that these bounces in the car added up are bad for my brain. My shifts are usually 4 hours.
No matter how slow and careful I drive, it's still a fairly bumpy/bouncy ride and I hate it.
I notice that I can have a minor headache after work, and I never ever get headaches so I know it's from the car...
It's really stressful to the point where I want to quit.. it's not worth it.
But I don't know if I'm overreacting or not.

What's good workout routine for someone with asthma? (asthma flairs up when doing things like running.)
I've started being serious at the gym. I've spent a lifetime on endurance training. A problem with lifting is when I step-up the weight there's always a point where I either can do no repetitions, to which I step down again and can do a buttload of repetitions again. Any suggestion in how to combat this? It keeps happening in all exercises.
I know for a fact I am slowly growing strength and muscles. I measure by tape and the loads do increase. I expect to get tired AF and have aches and what not. I feel nothing after my gym-sessions.
Should I ignore it and continue as I do. I do see improvements after all. :)
What do you guys do when you get blisters on your feet from running? I have one about the size of a quarter and I don't know if I should slap a bandage on it or what.
Curious - I've been trying to increase my weight, because of being a bit underweight and for health. I weigh myself, but found that after doing a lot I weight more than if I havent done as much, also I weigh more if I've sweated a lot - any ideas? (It goes back down later on...I'd like to get a clear reading).
Also, I was told my cholesterol is a bit high but my triglycerides (free lipids in my blood) are really low, and wondered A) what that means and B) what to do about it?
