What are some exercises for getting rid of belly fat?

Blog
Remember, you CANNOT out-exercise a Bad Diet. So, NUTRITION is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect. You can definitely reduce your Extra Belly Fat, just with Nutritional Intervention. My advise: Do NOT Skip any Meals Do NOT SKIP BREAKFAST (Yes, it is IMPORTANT…so, kind of repeating this) Leave a 4–5 hour Gap Between MEALS … NO SNACKING Whatsoever Ensure that you eat a Good Amount of Quality Protein with EVERY MEAL. Ensure that you eat a Good Amount of Quality Protein with your Breakfast (Again, yes, Emphasizing this) Eat your Dinner by 6 pm-7 pm. That is, try to complete your dinner, 4–5 hours before hitting the bed. DO NOT SNACK ON ANYTHING until your Breakfast the next morning. By ANYTHING, we mean ANYTHING (no peanuts, no milk, no apple…nothing). Other than…

Should you deadlift daily?

Should you deadlift daily?

Blog
No. Some points that will help you understand. Rest and Recovery is as much (if not more) important for you to get stronger, (and fitter and bigger.) You don’t not get Stronger in the Gym. It’s what happens Afterwards that gets you Strong (and fit…) So, proper Rest and Recover, as well as Proper Nutrition is of the Utmost Importance. How much times you will Deadlift and how much, will depend upon what your present status is (how much weight you have been Deadlifting in the past and how much weight you are deadlifting now). However, under NO Circumstances, should you deadlift daily. (You just should NOT DL daily). Hope this helps…

How can I develop mental sharpness and stamina?

How can I develop mental sharpness and stamina?

Blog
This is a question that needs to be looked at from different angles. You are bestowed with a certain amount of Intelligence and you are Special…well, just like everyone else is. Some things to Ponder about: Most of the times, we are bothered by things, over which we exercise little or no control. Do the things that give you pleasure and that you are good at. Don’t get sucked into something which you do not have the aptitude or the interest for. Let’s say, you don’t like Electrical Engineering as much as Mechanical Engineering, but are forced to Study EE, because that’s the only Engineering Branch of Study you could get admitted to, in a particular College. You might get into a Job due to an increased pay…even though, the…

Is it healthy to do 30 minutes of regular jogging, after 40?

Is it healthy to do 30 minutes of regular jogging, after 40?

Blog
The answer is Definitely NOT. Well, for each of us, our Daily Routine Exertions are Different. Depends upon our Lifestyle, Depends upon our Work, Depends upon how Fit we are to begin with. However, no amount of Strenuous Daily Routines are a Replacement for Working out. Let me Clarify. If you are doing the Same Routines every day, your body is already Adjusted/Adapted to them. So, if you are in a labor job that needs you to lift 50 bags of cement every day…granted this is Strenuous. Still your body gets Adapted to this…so you do get Fit and Strong to a Certain Extent…and Remain that way. This is because, your body does Not Have a Reason to get Fitter/Stronger, than you already are. This is where the Advantages of…

I can’t do pull ups because my left arm is very weak. What should I do?

I can’t do pull ups because my left arm is very weak. What should I do?

Blog
I prefer/suggest Chin-ups to Pull-ups, as your biceps are also involved with chin-ups. And so, you are working out more muscles and for that reason, it might just be a bit easier for you too… If you cannot do even a single pull-up/chin-up…not even a partial… Just hang for as long as you can… Keep Increasing your hang time, every time… Keep trying to get your first pull-up/chin-up partial If you are able to get a partial repetition Pull yourself to as much as you are able to… Stay there trying to pull yourself up further (even though you are not going up any) After a while come down SLOWWWWWWLYY Repeat This will increase how much you are able to pull yourself up…little by little then, you can achieve your…

To increase the size of muscles, should we increase the number of reps in a set or should we increase the number of sets?

To increase the size of muscles, should we increase the number of reps in a set or should we increase the number of sets?

Blog
If you are training for Hypertrophy (Increase in Size) in particular, increasing number of reps per set is the way to go. Generally, about 8–15 reps per set is used for training towards Hypertrophy. On the other hand, if you are training for gaining Strength specifically, you need to train with Higher Weights and Lower Reps per set. Typically, 5 reps or lower for gaining Strength. Ideally, with 5 reps per set, you will improve your Strength and will also gain some Hypertrophy (you will get bigger). Of course, the actually weight you will use for these sets will depend upon the number of reps per set. The Higher the Reps, Lower the Weights for that set (Hypertrophy Training) and the Higher the Weights, Lower the Reps for the set…

Can treadmill running alone increase running stamina?

Can treadmill running alone increase running stamina?

Blog
Yes. Treadmill Running and Road Running have some differences, but in many instances, they are the same. Road Running, would provide more variations in terms of where you can run. Treadmill would be quite monotonous for obvious reasons. On the Treadmill, it would be easier to program for different running surfaces…such as plain running, hill running with differing slopes (difficulty levels) etc. For Running Outside, it would take effort to find different running surfaces and also then, need to get to these differing locations. During Extreme Weather Conditions, such as too much heat, too cold and such, it is advantageous to use the Treadmill. Other than these, it shouldn’t make a difference if you are running outside or are using the treadmill. In both cases, a good running (training) program,…

I recently joined gym and I wanna gain some weight. What are the cheap and best foods to consume?

I recently joined gym and I wanna gain some weight. What are the cheap and best foods to consume?

Blog
Consider the following: Just “going to the gym” and eating “cheap food”, are not going to be healthy things to do, generally speaking. So, I’ll make my answer, a bit extensive. First and Foremost… HEALTHY Weight Gain means more contribution from Stronger and Bigger Muscles and Denser Bones, rather than from UnHealthy Fat. In order for this to happen, You’ll need to give your body a Reason to Get Stronger/Fitter/Bigger. Strength Training is the BEST possible way for this to happen, as it aids in Getting you Stronger and Bigger, due to More Contributions from Increases to Muscle Mass and Bone Density. In the process, you are bound to gain more Fat, which in itself, is NOT a bad thing. You can also Skew the Development, to happen more towards…

Does heavy lifting increase punching power?

Does heavy lifting increase punching power?

Blog
As with ALL Athletic Performance Improvements, YES, Punching Power will Definitely Increase with Increased Strength. And, the Best Way to Increase Strength is to Workout with Heavy Weights. Let me explain…(this could be lengthy). Your body adapts to Stress (for now, we are only talking Physical Stress). So, any Activity that is Difficult Enough for you (Stress) will cause your Body to Adapt. However, the Kind of Adaptation also Depends on the Kind of Stress. First off, ANY ACTIVITY is good for a Sedentary Person…meaning, a Sedentary Person’s body will have all kinds of Adaptation to any Activity…in the beginning. However, this lasts for a very short time. So, if a person trains by Running Long Distance, that’s what they get good at. Running Long Distance, will NOT result in…
