It depends on your purspose and what you are free to do. When I joined the Army I started hetting more than regular exercise and eating three high calorie square meals a day. In four months I gained almost twenty five pounds of muscle. This was without weight traing, just calisthenics and running. I imagine if you started to have bigger more nutritious meals and alternate lifting weights and running you could buff up quite a bit. It all depends on if you want be a body builder or just buff.

How do you avoid gaining bulking muscles for women?

You really don't need to worry about it. Gaining muscle is not that easy, especially when you have 5% the testosterone of men. Additionally, there is no such thing as toning muscle vs. adding bulk. You either add muscle or you don't - if you want more definition then reduce your body fat. Women, like men, should be strength training with a barbell.

You don't need to be worrying about gaining muscle at such a young age. Eat and sleep well so you can grow taller. Working out is the only way to gain muscle weight and you might stunt growth that way. But if you really want to, intake lots of protein and workout 3 times a week.

Is your metabolism messed up if you used to be anorexic and you're now eating around 1400 calories a day and can't stop gaining weight?

If you were anorexic, you probably lost a lot of muscle mass. It will take you a while to build back muscle and muscle is where you burn calories. Try building muscle mass. Eat plenty of calories and specifically 60 to 80 protein grams or more and exercise to build back muscle mass. You really need to get healthy again and you'll only do that by building muscle.

How do you gain strength without gaining big muscles?

Well, there is a balance between strength and muscle size. If you want to get really strong, you'll have to accept having really big muscles. But if you just want to get stronger, then the key is to exercise on a sensible level. If you keep the weights so that you can do 3 sets of 10 repetitions, or even 4 sets of 10 reps, muscle growth won't be that much.

Will you lose your axess stomach fat if you run daily for half an hour?

The simple thought to losing some weight "Am I burning as much or more than I eat?" Running for half an hour will burn some calories, so I am assuming that you will lose some weight. There is no set place that you lose the weight at. If most of your fat is stored at your stomach, then you will probably lose some there. From running, you will probably lose some in your legs and gain some muscle. Don't be freaked out by the thought of gaining muscle. In women, muscle makes you lean and appear to be thinner than you really are. In men, muscles make you buff. So whatever gender you are, gaining muscle is a good thing. One thing you might want to do is vary your exercise program a bit from time to time. Doing so helps to prevent overworking those select muscle groups. I would suggest mixing in some weights or other arm exercises.

What is cardiac smooth muscle?

There is nothing really called 'cardiac smooth muscle'. Cardiac muscle is striated like skeletal muscle but it is not under your control like skeletal muscle is. It acts more like smooth muscle because of this reason. But we only use the terms smooth muscle, striated (skeletal) muscle or cardiac muscle.
