Study shows that a lack of exercise is one of the main culprits of bad health. How much do you exercise?
doesn't all that running with a back pack mess up your knees?3 times a week at the gym and one day of minimum 4 mile hump with full pack (65-80 lbs)
I adjust it based on my energy levels.
Heavy dead lifts, one day of deadmill sprints, upper body or squats depending how much the deadlifts took out of me in an earlier day.
Exact opposite. I use to have right knee pain. The only time I get a twinge is if when I deadlift and I don't have all my weight on my heels.doesn't all that running with a back pack mess up your knees?
What distance jogging would you say is too far? (I currently do 4 miles 2 or 3 times a week)Exact opposite. I use to have right knee pain. The only time I get a twinge is if when I deadlift and I don't have all my weight on my heels.
I am not running with the pack. But its a good clip. I never recommend running with weight on your back. A rucksack is not too much of an issue.
I ran thousands of miles in the service of course, but I don't do that. If I did, it would only be once a week.
I am NOT a subscriber of long distance running. It's unnatural.
Contrary to some who think that over training isn't real? Do not listen to them. Read "Primal Endurance", if you want to know the damage that can be done. Life debilitating? Read David Goggin's book..."Cant hurt me" He clearly recanted on stupid acts of senseless endurance training and thinking that there is no ceiling to physical stress. His pull-ups record clearly showed this as well.
Primitive man had two travel modes. Cross country trekking (using fat as fuel to walk), and the dead out sprint. (escaping danger).
A broken ankle meant death.
Did you know that if you did five 15-20 second sprints twice a week that you would drastically reduce your time?What distance jogging would you say is too far? (I currently do 4 miles 2 or 3 times a week)
I'm an old man and have the best body in the gym most days. I've been lifting since I was 12 and don't plan to stop anytime soon.I can't imagine hitting any gyms when I'm an old man...all that bulk the 'do you even lift' guys are putting on, will likely end up as flab.
No such thing as “too much” IF your hormones are balanced, you sleep enough, and EAT enough. All that aside. Humans are meant to be active most of the day anyway I think. Which is why doing it makes us happy. We’re just animals.Probably too much. I have a gym in my house so it’s 5-6 times a week down there. I do an hour and a half of lifting and abs and another 45 minutes of cardio. I also play golf 3-4 times a week and walk the course which from all estimations burns between 900-1500 calories.
Absolutely! You have to eat, sleep and recover. There is no such thing as overtraining just failure to recover. I had my testosterone checked a year ago and for 38 it was still “normal” at 630 but from how active I was and my lifestyle my shbg was high. I had the option of reducing my level of activity and try to sleep 10 hours a night... which is impossible for me. I started trt and it was the best thing I’ve ever done! It was like my body was starving and the second I raised my levels to the upper limits of normal fat melted off, skin looked 10 years younger, blood pressure is now perfect, and strength and motivation went thru the roof. If your approaching 40 and still living like your in your 20’s I would recommend looking into it.No such thing as “too much” IF your hormones are balanced, you sleep enough, and EAT enough.
