    No. It'd make you more limber and help your muscles deal with stress' For example taking sharp movements. It's why many professional sports-players do yoga/stretching but it wouldn't strengthen your muscles like weightlifting would.

    What you're going for with weight lifting is hypertrophy and the most basic way to explain it is that when you weightlift you create Micro-tears in your muscles' your body then grows over those micro-tears to adapt to the stress of weightlifting. I.E your body strengthening

    Make sense?

    Yes, it makes sense. One problem I experience while doing weight lifting (for arm exercises), is that my right arm (dominant) is better able to keep going whereas my left arm tires out much quicker. Do you know the reason for this?

    Also, I've been told in the past the I've been in starvation mode and my muscles have atrophied (except lately I have been exercising.) Is there way to know for sure whether I'm still in this state or not?

    That's usually how it goes with arm dominance, I don't know much about why our brain picks a certain hand to use over the other but I do know that's pretty normal. @ your non dominant arm tiring before your dominant one



    It's kinda funny because as a child I was always left handed but my mother (who's right handed) thought you could only be right handed so for years she taught me how to write and work with my right hand instead of my left.

    Even during weightlifting I've noticed I have far more pushing strength with my left compared to my right even when I do the majority of work with my right such as writing, lifting, gripping.. so on so forth. My left arm tires much more slowly then my right arm aswell. I'm not formally educated about the topic but it almost makes me wonder if our brains just receive signals differently for both arms no matter which we use dominantly?

    I'unno. It's a showerthought.

    As far as I know "starvation mode" is when you're taking in less calories then you're burning up for an extended period of time. How long that is? Idk.

    Every person has a Resting caloric-use and for the sake of argument I'll say that yours is around 1500cal (average woman) and mine's 2000cal (average man). If you take in less then those amounts, your body begins using fat reserves in your body to sustain yourself. After a certain amount of time it begins to eat away muscle too if you're not using it so I'm guessing that's Starvation mode? Whatever that is.

    Just eat girl lmao' Protein and fatty (natural fats) foods are very good for lifting. Peanut butter is a very cheap way to to meet your caloric intake/supplement protein outside of eating red meats, eggs and fish.

    I'd assume though if you have a healthy appetite you're not starving yourself. I don't know your eating habits so I can only guess but the biggest thing about weightlifting is eating enough to actually put on mass/muscle. For example I eat around 3500/4000 because I lift strength train every other day.



    edit:

    By the way I'm not a coach or anything' I just spend alot of my time alone lifting. This is all information I've picked up throughout the years' if you have any doubts about any of it I highly suggest using google or watching strength trainers explanation videos. I'll always give you my best answers and if I can't I'll point you in a direction that will.

    I'm personally a big fan of Alan Thrall tho' I follow a lot of his philosophy's toward lifting.

    Oh no worries, I hope it isn't anything serious like depression and etc. Thank you for the tips though and I'll check out Mr. Thrall :)

    As for my eating habits I eat two medium-size meals a day. I just don't have an appetite honestly. I love food, but I forget to eat or don't get hungry. it's bad to a point that I have to set clock reminders on my phone. I don't know why this is haha because I used to eat a LOT. Like lots of junk and 3 meals a day type of behavior and now it's the opposite.

    Just the other day for breakfast (11:00 am) I had 2 egg whites and an orange w/ some water and then dinner I had a bowl of soup around 6pm. Even if I am hungry it's very easy for my mind to ignore that impulse.

    Definately not. It could tone a bit but not really build much.

    Why are my runs so inconsistent? Some days I can go 8+ miles with relative ease. Yesterday I was gassed at 1 and a half

    You probably have more energy when you can run more, i.e you've eaten better, maybe more carbs and also you've slept better
    caffeine affects muscle endurance too

    What's the point in doing dead lifts?

    It depends. I do it because its a competition lift. Other people do it to strengthen the posterior chain. It hits almost every muscle group in the body, and because it's a full body lift that hits all the muscles in the body, you can go much Much MUCH heavier than on exercises targeted at a single body part which allows you to overload muscles and create a greater training stimulus.
