    You are doing WAY WAY more than is needed to be fit and healthy. You can't force good health with constant exercise. "Cardio" is pretty much an utter waste of time and precious energy. Not to mention...

    You are clearly over thinking this! You say you have little time? Walking is the least efficient way to fitness. You'd be FAR better off doing one brief, intense full body workout and one sprint...

    You are on point here. The idea that one must eat immediately after a workout is nonsense. It was propagated by the supplement industry to sell protein powders and the like. I bought into it...

    Workout yesterday was about 8 minutes, followed by 5 minutes sitting so that I could walk without passing out. Today I have a good full body soreness going. Wednesday I'll do it again.

    Yes surgeons are the true doctors. I don't follow any of their advice (MDs' etc) and my health is fantastic. Its a path that leads to trouble more often than not.

    A perfect example that we don't need that much "exercise"!!! It was smart. You didn't do more than was required to be fit. More is NOT better, almost all of the time. Intensity is key. When intensity...

    I think that interval training is very effective. There are lots of ways to do it and not all are high impact. I've done flat ground sprints and have most definitely had minor tears and the like....

    Any program that causes injuries like that is NOT proper exercise. Period. I simply can't believe all of the nonsense out there. The fitness industry is a joke. If any protocol wears people out and...

    First off you are young and most likely don't have the hormone profile to build lots of strength and muscle yet. In any case, if you aren't responding to weight training very well, increasing the...

    Today My workout took 5-1/2 minutes followed by a good 3 or 4 minutes sitting before I could walk. Hours in the gym? That is straight up crazy!

    Once fat adapted, there is no need for extra carbs. I never even eat before training and my workouts are very high energy. Its a great feeling when you don't need to eat constantly to feel right.
