Should I work out today?

posted by admin on April 23rd, 2011

Two days ago, I did a full body work out. Quads, glutes, biceps, triceps, deltoids, pectorals, trapezius, and abdominals. I always do every single one of these, except pecs and whatever muscle you use when you do squats. So naturally, a day after I did these, the back of my thighs and my pecs were extremely sore. Do you think I’ll be able to work out today, two days after my last workout?
I think I forgot to mention I’m still really sore. But I’m going to work out anyway.

I am told you should work out a maximum of every 48 to 72 hours with weightlifting for a muscle group

I would suggest waiting 24 more more hours before doing a workout, however you can walk and stretch and help remove the lactic acid from your legs this might remove soreness and if it does you can probably lift today.

Some people alternate arms and legs

Will the elliptical work my butt?

posted by admin on April 16th, 2011

I’ve been working out 4 to 5 times a week since I was 13, but back then I did hardly any cardio because I had practically no fat on my body. I’m now 17, so in addition to muscle building and toning I also do 30 minuets on the treadmill, because I can no longer eat whatever I want without it showing. I used to have a really high, tight, muscle butt but lately I’ve been noticing its starting to get kinda loose and flabby. I never use the elliptical because I always thought it was just for girls and for really overweight guys who couldn’t handle the treadmill. Lately however I’ve noticed some guys using the elliptical, and just the way the elliptical looks it seems like it would work your glutes pretty good. If I start using the elliptical in addition to treadmill (like maybe 2 days a week) will that help me get my butt back?

The eliptical will be great, but the recumbant cycle wil be amazing.

It depends on the incline and whether you are pedaling forward or backward. Many machines will show which muscle group is being worked on the graphics, but I believe pedaling backwards at moderate and high inclines will work your glutes.

also, does a stationary bike that doesn’t have resistance to it burn a good bit of calories.? Does the stationary bike work all of the leg muscles and firm and or build them up too? Anyone have any experience with this subject? Thanks

It won’t help you burn many calories if it doesn’t have any resistance. If you add the resistance, yes, it will firm up and tone the leg muscles and burn a lot of calories if you ride hard enough. It will strengthen the legs, but you shouldn’t "bulk up" from riding.
