I make my spinning class more effective?
I spin 3-4 times a week and love it, but
want to keep improving cardio-wise &
have recently purchased a mountain bike
to help me to lose weight and get fit. Recently,
whilst cycling I develop a pain in both
I am wondering why this is?
wanted to know if you think it's a good
idea to do aerobics on my off days. I want
to gain weight so I don't know if I
should do that. If I do aerobics will that
help build muscle or hurt when the muscles
know what anabolic and catabolic states
are but I'm not sure how doing cardio
work would affect my muscle gains due
to the fact it induces a catabolic state
but without stimulating muscle growth.
have injured my tendon on the left side
of my knee. I usually use the treadmill
but have been told my injury can take up
to six weeks to heal and that I shouldn't
use the treadmill. I've been trying to come
up with some other exercises that will produce
the same results as the treadmill.
is the theory behind interval training?
I always do interval training as they say
it is the best to lose fat. They say with

I'm planning on taking up running.
How much should I run every week and how

I have found that
the front half
of both feet and all my toes fall asleep
and go completely numb after about 15 minutes!
The shoes are new, the toe box seems
adequately wide, and the shoes are very
flexible. Any thoughts as to what the cause
am 5'9" &
right now I weigh about 144lbs. A few months
ago I dropped down to 129lbs. My question
is, I have been doing cardio again for the
past week trying to lose weight again, but
I also wanna get more toned, BUT my main
thing is I wanna wear my short shorts
w/o them being snug like they are now. If
I start weight training more than doing
cardio & continue my excellent nutritional
eating, will my shorts eventually fit comfy
again w/o having to do so much cardio like
I did few months ago?? AND, how often should
I do cardio during the week?
training someone who does not have much
time, for long distance, such as marathons,
is it ok to include both weights and
cardio in the same workout? Would you
recommend 3 days of lifting and 5-7 days
of straight cardio? This is what I think,
but as a beginning personal trainer, I am
