What would you like to do?
Yes, they do. Think of it this way: you do not grow muscle in the gym. What you do in the gym should stimulate muscle growth outside the gym, which means that recovery is… as important as exercise. Exercise is like medicine: too little is not effective and too much is counter-productive. In both, it's important to get enough without getting too much. It's best to do both cardio and weight (strength) training for fat loss. Cardio will burn extra energy during and immediately after your walks. Weight training will build muscle, which is your metabolic furnace that will burn calories 24 hours a day. It is not necessary to do intense cardio (such as running) for fat loss. The best cardio is mild exercise such as brisk walking. It is sustainable and it will not interfere with proper strength training. An excellent program is to go for a brisk walk six days of the week. The best time to walk is before your first meal of the day. Walking two miles will retard additional fat gain, while walking 3 to 6 miles on average will help you lose fat. "Brisk" means walking at a 4 mph pace. If you have not been walking, build up to that very slowly. You need not do all your daily walking in one session. It's only necessary to do proper weight training for about 45 minutes every 4 or 5 days. (Do a whole body routine. Focus on the major, compound exercises, which are full squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins. Learn proper exercise technique and do it on every rep.) So doing mild cardio such as brisk walking is fine with one rest day per week. Doing proper strength training is fine with only one workout every 4 or 5 days. So both have rest days, and, together, they will greatly accelerate your fat loss. You can use this sustainable program until your dotage. If you have not been doing the weight training, you will find that, unlike cardio, which can be boring, it's actually fun. If you adopt and sustain this program, you will love your results. Train in good health! (Before significantly changing your exercise habits, you may first wish to obtain the blessing of your physician.) ----
Getting a visible, defined six pack is mostly a matter of reducing body fat, not developing the abdominal muscles. You can do all the intense abdominal work you want, but unti…l you reduce your body fat to around 10%, you won't see any results since your abs will be covered in fat.
No, but if you did it 5 times spread throughout the day it might. I personally like hip hop abs, The music may not be as great as they say, but Sean T is a really great train…er, He really motivates you. So i would recommend Doing the two longer videos, switch everyday. Good luck!
anywhere from 10 to 30 mins depending on the workout
Combine cardio with crunches. The muscles are there, but most people have fat over them. You want to lose the fat and make them bigger.
Hi , you should probably spend 1-2 days of rest between your workouts. it also depends how hard you workout at your workout. if you do an easy workout then only rest one… day, and if you work hard, the rest two days. you should workout 4 times a week if you want big muscles that show. drink lots of water and dont eat junk period.
You are under 18 and you are wondering whether you should work out every day or should you rest giving 2 days rest from your last workout?
You don't need 2 days rest. do cycles, lower body one day, upper the next, then mix lower with some explosive lifts like clean+jerks and snatches. then mix upper with auxiliar…y lifts like curls and tricep extensions, ect. as long as u don't just keep working the same muscle group everyday, u don't ever need a whole day rest. but one a week would be a good idea for your joints.
You need to wait at least 48 hours before working chest again, the longer you rest the lower the risk of overtraining
I would highly recommend between 24 hours and 72 hours. That is between 1 to 3 days.
You are 19 years old 170 pounds how many calories should you eat to get six pack abs if you workout 1.5 to 2 hours a day and play hockey for an hour a day?
You're young, so your metabolism shouldn't be an issue. You can be as thin as a rail and still not have a six-pack. What you need is an intense sit-up routine, along with with… your 1.5 to 2 hour workout/cardio activity. You really need both of them to be successful. Your carb and calorie intake should decrease as the day passes. At night-time, stay away from these, and bring in the fiber and protein. That will give your body something to eat at during sleep. As for the sit-ups, work on this routine. It's good enough to get you started, and then you can tinker with it from there. You won't be able to do all the reps the first time, probably. That's ok. Find proper form on the internet. After you can do it, then repeat. Do this work-out every other day. Six-pack formula: 2 min. plank 10 leg lifts 10 crunches 10 sit-ups 1.5 min. plank 1 min. side plank (one min. for each side) 10 clam shells 10 bicycles 10 leg lifts (yes, again) 10 side sit-ups (one set of 10 per side) 1.5 min. plank repeat*
12 -13 days
1 or 2 Days
