Posted 8 Oct 2013I would have found a more credible source, I just wasn't concerned enough about the whole issue to bother
Posted 7 Oct 2013I was under the impression that one gets shin splints from not stretching before running.
You might be right Didn't do much of that at the time either.
Well, I'm not a doctor or anything. It's your joints. But I wouldn't do it if I wasn't down to almost no body fat.
And elite athletes are down to around 3% body fat. I talked to Chad Hennings about it once (he was speaking to a group and talking about his atheletic training with the Dallas Cowboys). 8% is closer to a non-athelete who is slim but not annorexic.
So, I stand by what I said. But its your life.
I don't agree with 0 running. Running's a great way to increase your endurance. You just have to build up to long periods of running if you are overweight.
Posted 7 Oct 2013What works for me is running 2 times per week(1 hour each time) ,cycling for 30 minutes everyday and do exercises on horizontal bar everyday for 20 minutes.
Be careful with the running. In my opinion, you should not run if your body fat is more than about 8%. In other words, if you're not at your ideal weight you shouldn't be running. I would suggest losing the weight and then you can run to keep it off if you like. But I would strongly suggest never running to lose weight.
The reason is that your chances of injury are exponentially higher. Running already puts a tremendous amount of stress on your bones, ligament, and especially your joints. When you slam your legs into the ground you are multiplying the force times the weight of your body. The heavier you are the more the force exerted on your joints rises exponentially.
I started running to lose weight many years ago until it lead to injury. Then I was forced to quit. Later I lost weight through diet alone.
You can also burn just as many calories by walking a mile as you can by running a mile. The difference is the amount of time you have to spend at it.
That's my 2cents anyway.
I agree. I started out running way too much, and I ended up with major shin splits. They stayed with me for weeks and I ended up not being able to run as a result.
Posted 7 Oct 2013Thats really great. I just benched 210x5 the other day, and was working on getting that up to 220
Posted 7 Oct 2013Personally I think it's ridiculous to shut down a memorial or park just to score political points. Doesn't matter who does it. Just makes me sick.
