Re: Good ole tennis elbow!? :(

Hi Cynthia, good to talk to you. From what I can make out having seen images of that brace, it is supposed to be worn around 1" above the elbow, so if you're doing that then you're using it correctly. Tennis Elbow is a type of bursitis and bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa which are little fl...

Re: Progress Reversed!

Hi Salboo, good to speak to you.

You say you spoke to people from the medical proffession and you say blood tests came back clear, however would it be intrusive of me if I asked whether around 6 months ago you started taking medication of any kind, as some medications can be linked to weight gain.

Is it possible there may be some sort of medical concern that has affected your hormone levels perhaps, something that maybe blood tests wouldn't necessarily pick up? It may also be possible the test results you got back were somehow misreported, I:E: they were someone elses, but you got given them as an administrative error, or indeed the blood tests may have been carried out in an insufficient manner.

These outcomes are extremely slim in terms of being possible, but they are existent possibilities and therefore it would be mindful to at least not dismiss them as being totally impossible.

You may also be overdoing it on the exercise. If you workout 5 times a week then fine, but if you do as you suggested and train daily, by sandwiching 5 sessions of cardio and 5 sessions of weights into a 7 day period, you could be causing yourself issues like overtraining / going stale.

This can manifest itself as lethargy, loss of weight lifting ability, potentially suppressed immune system due to inadequate recovery each week and also as 1lb of added muscle mass burns around an etra 45-50 calories per day and is there good for metabolic health, burning it off through excessive exercise could create the opposite effect, as reduced calorie burning ability in the body could cause fat gain.

The things I have highlighted may be of no connection to what you have exeperienced but one or more of them might be, but anything other things you can think of or remember, please feel free to discuss them if you wish :).<*

Re: Keep Cutting or Start Bulking

Hi Avelli, good to speak to you. personally military press is going to utilise a bit too much chest, so I'd switch it to something else like cleans as an example to work the upper back. Also Leg Press could be a bit much with squats for legs as it is a good all rounder, whereas squats mostly target ...

Re: Weight loss on restricted gall bladder diet

Sometimes less can be more. You may have walked too much and your body might have wanted to hang onto fat depending on your food intake.

You may hev lost weight but it might be that it was very slight, but even if you lose 1/4 lb a week, then it's getting you somewhere. Consistency of results is key, not necessarily timeframe or a specific amount :).

What makes you think you lost around the waist?<*

Re: Training with dumbbells

Plateau means when the muscles hit the buffers and can't get beyond a certain point, when the person has the physical potential to get stronger than that.

Hopefully that explains things.

Re: Training with dumbbells

Well they might if you were talking about 2 or 3 pairs, but with free weight the discs can just be piled up in small heaps in the corner of a room and the bars can be tucked under a bed, as I know from personal experience and you'd get more flexibility in how much weight you can use, otherwise you'l...

Re: Training with dumbbells

Hi geek good to speak to you. Instead of dumbbells could you be in a position to get yourself a free weight setup, so you could then have a long bar a couple of small ones, some free weight and perhaps a workout bench? In the long-run this approach becomes more flexible, gives you easier storage of ...

Re: Excercises for the back

Hi El Barto, good to speak to you. Exercises that can work the lower back include deadlifts, hyperextensions and good mornings. You would need to experiment first with an unweighted range of motion, to see if you could actually complete reps free of pain and / or discomfort. Then were that possible,...

Re: Weight loss on restricted gall bladder diet

If someones calories are a bit low the body can hnold onto fat as it goes into what is called a starvation mode, so if you're undereating a bit then it may account for why your weight loss is not quite as prolific as you would wish. Also you are exercising so having added calories is also good to pr...

Re: Weight loss on restricted gall bladder diet

Some possibilities. You may have gained a bit of muscle, hence the net losses on weight. your calories may be a bit low and may beend increasing by around 20-30%. A bit of both. I doubt you've gotten a bit of water retention, unless you've been getting an unneccessary level of salt in your diet. You...

Re: Salt is actually good for us

Salt can be bad for you. It can contribute to high blood pressure and also cause water retention, as well as edema which is excess fluid in the legs. However when regulated within the GDA, guideline daily amount, which I believe is still set at an upper limit of 6g salt consumption per day, it would...

Re: Exercise on dodgy knees

Hi Aleyshia good to speak to you.

Have you considered using a recumbent exercise bike, as you won't be loadbearing a lot of bodyweight onto your knees.
