Re: Help Needed

Hi Fred, good to talk to you.

Re: Fat Burning and Lean Muscle Building

I thought you women could multitask. So why not combine tthe two things? Play the bagpipes whilst you're doing some supermans, or if you've got one hand free maybe downward dog bagpipes :tongue:.

Moderate carbs and a decent protein content to energise and protect muscle mass, so things like chicken salad, low fat cheese, peanuts, chocolate milk, a protein shake with carbs in it, low fat protein bars with no rubbish like high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats, I:E ones with a 20g or h...

Have you access to a gym and if not do you train at home and if not, would you be willing to purchase some equipment?

Do you have a neutral gait, a suipnated one where the ankle rolls outwards, or a pronated one where the ankle rolls inwards.
