So, I want to get back into regular running after a gap of a couple years. But I have mild atrial fibrillation, which means I'm pretty intolerant of high-intensity exercise and can't push myself hard while building up fitness. Help me find a training app that will let me go at my own pace. [more inside]
Does anyone have any magic ways to keep your hair less sweaty while exercising? I want to run every second day, but I don't want to wash my hair that often and have just realised that that is actually the number one reason why I procrastinate on running. [more inside]
I'm taking 150 mg of Seroquel which has seemed to be helping. But i need to lose preexisting weight..about 40-50 lbs. All i read on the web are horror stories about people gaining 50-100 lbs even when they are doing cardio and weights. My question...anybody here either themselves or know people who have actually been able to lose weight while on seroquel if they followed the usual healthy eating and exercise 3-5 times a week?
I want to lose weight and improve my running speed. Is running + yoga + swimming enough? [more inside]
I like running and swimming, and try to do about half an hour of each at least three or four times a week. Now I've started weight training three times a week as well. Should I reduce the cardio if I want to gain muscle faster? I'm a naturally skinny ectomorph that has a hard time putting on mass.
How realistic a goal is a 10 minute mile for me? Sproing for Details. [more inside]
I had a little chest infection about three weeks ago and now my cardio sucks. I still don't think I'm getting as much oxygen as my body needs to really push it when I jog /spin. Will this just take time, or is there something I can do? [more inside]
Alternative exercises on an elliptical? What else can I do with this thing, besides run on it, to spice things up? [more inside]
I'm looking for a beginner running program that's geared to someone with good initial fitness and isn't quite as beginner as Couch-to-5k. Any recommendations of a good program or any experiences you have to share? [more inside]
All my life I've had this problem when doing any sort of cardio activity: my throat can stand my breathing for about 15 seconds before it starts to burn like hell. I've tried breathing differently, asking for medical advice, drinking various beverages before/during/after working out... nothing. It's happened when I've been in better shape and when I'm a lazy slob. So I avoid cardio, which I have always desperately needed. How can I overcome this and work out pain-free? [more inside]
