    I actually started lifting weights about a week ago and it's a lot of fun. I just couldn't get much from just bodyweight training anymore and if I need to do 30-40 reps of every exercise in my evening routine, it just gets boring. For now, I got a basic dumbell set, as it's considerably more versataile than a huge barbell. I've put together a set of exercises for hamstrings and glutes consisting of Sumo squats, romanian deadlifts, weighted hip bridges and hip thrusts. I am also doing some biceps curls inbetween, but I haven't yet found anything to maybe further strengthen my core and maybe some more for the arms. Is there anything you can recommend?

    And yeah, I am not really worried about getting too bulky or anything. From martial arts, I have a pretty muscular back and if I don't specifically flex it, people don't notice. Same with core-strength for some part.

    I asked about the body fat, since a while ago, I lost a lot of weight due to stress and even though I put mostly muscle back on, my body fat percentage was at 29%, the last time I tested. I didn't 'look' fat, even then, but ever since that last time I had it checked, I've been paranoid that I might actually look chubby or start looking chubby.
    are you doing 30-40 reps even for that exercises? that's absolutely worthless. 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.

    • Eat protein within an hour after working out ok (remember carbs)
    • Drink lots of water awesome
    • Ice the sore muscles not needed
    • Take anti inflammatory meds- sparingly really?
    • Drink tart cherry juice ( antioxidant) no please
    • Massage the muscle(s) ok

    It was also recommended to take these supplements: not needed, just eat properly
    • Vitamin C ( antioxidant) ok
    • Omega 3 (fish oil) &/or eat more fish ok


    I also rubbed my muscles with a pain relieving cream (Aspercreme -orig. formula). don't waste your money

    I was already doing some of these things before looking up the treatment, so I guess it could have been worse if I hadn't.

    Edit: Forgot one, supposedly drinking caffeine before a workout should also help relieve soreness. caffeine is usually used as a pre-workout to have more focus in the gym and push harder and probably you will get the opposite effect. That doesn't work for me though cause I usually work out in the evenings. If I drink something caffeinated I definitely won't sleep.
    are you having so much DOMS? thats really weird...

    I do 5 sets of 10 reps each. Generally, my plan looks like this:
    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 training

    There 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.
    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.

    @Word Dispenser @Tsubaki @Pupazzo @Skittles Berry Punch @EndsOfTheEarth

    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.

    Have you talked with your doctor about moderate resistance training? Or if that sounds too intense, how about relaxing yoga? Yoga still challenges your strength and focuses on controlled breathing.

    Regardless, talk with a doctor who exercises as well.

    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.

    I never got blisters from running. Think preventative: Better socks, better shoes, tighten the laces better, avoid getting wet. Blisters is generally the result of things moving around. Buy blister-plasters, you don't want to burst it.

    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?
