I've been doing yoga for about 2 weeks now and I don't think I've ever fallen in love with an exercise/workout more. I always look forward to doing yoga every morning and afternoon, yet I have an issue. I want to gain strength and gain some... (more)

I don't think that yoga can "replace" lifting or strength training in the sense that it could build muscle and improve your metabolism and body composition. It might be very good for you, physically and otherwise, and contribute to better health... (more)

Getting a pullup/chinup gimmick that mounts to the door frame is pretty easy they run around thirty bucks. Mine made a mark on the frame but hasn't damaged it.

From what I've heard, free weight training is recommended and weight machines are not thought to be effective. But I wanted to check in on that. I lifted on weight machines for years, and was strong (and regained strength quickly when I resumed... (more)

I think that if you are trying to get the most out of your workout, free weights are the way to go. They work your entire body because they require coordination and stability. This is practical to everyday tasks, which is the essence of the paleo... (more)

Increasing muscle mass will increase your base metabolic rate (BMR) which will cause you to lose more weight. Your BMR is the number of calories it takes to keep you alive, even if you were to sit on the couch all day. These calories are used for... (more)

Does low carb lower testosterone levels? I have been on a VLC diet for about a week now and I feel amazing. I only eat one meal a day, around 8:00pm, and I have never felt this good in my life. By the way I am 21 years old (male). I am trying... (more)

Depends on how you look at it. Decreasing the testosterone:cortisol ratio and upregulating pregnenolone-steal is of course going to have a negative impact. On the other hand, carb restriction tends to coincide with fiber restriction, which means... (more)

Yes, eating carbs benefits you after intense strength exercise by replacing muscle glycogen and spiking insulin to switch the body back to an anabolic state. However, bodybuilders usually don't take carbs alone after exercise. They take it... (more)

I've heard that we should always rest at least 48 hours between weight workouts of a muscle group. But I'm inclined to think that in the caveman days, strenuous hunting or fighting didn't always have such a rest period. Is it possible that 48... (more)

I'm in my 7th week of paleo and doing well. I've lost 10+ pounds, lost inches on my waist and gained some inches on my chest and biceps. I work a physical job (in a warehouse w/heavy lifting) and I find I am incredibly hungry the day after I do... (more)

Lifting heavy things, makes your muscles burn all their stored glucose, this is what creates cravings. I would recommend drinking a Whey protein shake, within one hour after your workout and add Sweet potatoes to your diet

How much cardio is actually too much? Also can it cause your metabolism to slow down? I do relatively intense inclines 5 days a week after weights (30mins), then 2 days 30mins HIIT.

In my opinion a lot of cardio isn't bad if you respect some "rules": try to run outdoor, don't run at the same heart pace (I only do trail running with hard uphills) and think to make sprint. To answer your question, I'm and endurance runner who... (more)
