See a specialist. Noone can or should give you advice in a forum. Shoulder pain is multifaceted and requires individual assessment and treatment.February 19, 2022 at 5:47 pm in reply to: My calves feels like they tear up #264170
In addition to the valuable response above, spend 1-2 seconds at the bottom (stretched position) of each rep to negate the stretch reflex of the Achilles. Let the Gastroc & Soleus do the work rather than the Achilles. That’s what that muscle group is designed for, springyness.
In short, No. Do it for some element of cardio, variation to routine, and to be social and/or compete. Not going to build muscle.
FYI, pro swimmers are in the pool 3-5 hours/day (some even more) and up to 7 days per week for those physiques, plus a lot of gym work.February 17, 2022 at 10:43 pm in reply to: Invaluable info but log book is frustrating #262399
Agree with 1). I like to check out vids prior to training day/week and not sit there for 4mins watching a technique video. Yeah just be able to open up the daily program and watch the vids without committing to ‘starting’ the workout.
I’m not sure what you’re saying about 2) & 3) as previous weights and reps are in the boxes for today’s workout, which you change if needed. Timer is on top right of app. I’m on Android version if that’s different? Or you may need to just update your app.February 17, 2022 at 10:30 pm in reply to: 10 week challenge cut #262392
Just throw you my thoughts. Use them or not. Up to you.
Firstly, I’m not a nutrition guru, but I’m a trainer who’s owned a gym for 10 years. So I only ever talk in general terms.
If you want to lose any type of physical mass, you need to be in a caloric deficit. How you get there is irrelevant. But the more you do and the more you eat (in a deficit), the better it tends to work.
If you’re not assessing (tracking) your guessing.
Whether you like it or not, there’s only so much ‘clean eating’ one can do without measuring and getting a result. Can be lucky, but if it stops working, then what do you do? Eat cleaner? Or give up?
I despise calorie counting, so I don’t do it. But I ‘track’ it. Stick it in a tracking app and just keep note of how many calories you’re eating. You’ll be surprised where you tend to go over or under.
I know this app has a counter, but I have a life subscription to another app so I use that. I only do it when I really want to sort out my shit. I don’t plan my meals. I eat what I like, but understand from previous tracking what tends to blow out the calories, so I know what to avoid. Just some thoughts mate. Well worth the effort.
It’s like not tracking your training volume and wondering why you aren’t getting bigger and/or stronger. Same same.February 15, 2022 at 9:28 pm in reply to: 10 week challenge cut #260002
