I’ve changed my sleeping habits lately also. Before I was going to be around 2am and getting up around 7am, terrible I know. The past week or so, I’ve adjusted that a lot. I’m going to bed around 10pm, and trying to get up around 5am. This is when I plan to get my workout in. Get up at 5, head to the gym, workout, hit the showers, and head on into work. I noticed another article you wrote about not eating before you work out. Do you feel you have plenty of energy for your workout when you do that? I’m one who can’t eat when I wake up, so I will probably be working out on an empty stomach also. It makes me nauseous if I don’t wait a couple hours to eat. At the same time, I don’t want to fizzle out during the workout, or miss out on any gains.
Please note, that this calculator predicts your maximum possible natural weight, key of course is which definition of natural I am using. In the context of this prediction calculator, “natural” means no steroids, no pro-hormone supplements, no hormone replacement therapy, and no testosterone boosters – that is, no products that artificially raise testosterone levels. I realize that this is a very, very loose definition of natural and its one that personally I don’t agree with. If you use every product that GNC has to offer that doesn’t boost testosterone, I would consider you natural and the predictions of this calculator would be applicable to you.
Like most people here, I have the problem of muscular thighs. I’m a 23 yr old female and I’m 5’3″. when I lose weight following conventional rules about cardio amd weight resistance training I would lose fat but I’d be left with a muscular curve on the front of my thighs and a bulky side view, especially in jeans. Im sure it’s genetic but I HATE IT ! Lately I’ve been trying to shift some fat I’ve Gained but I’m taking a new approach, focussing on cardio;brisk walking, jogging and interval training on the treadmill at my gym. I’m avoiding any resistance leg work but I have been doing leg raises while lying on my side because I want to target some stubborn fat deposits between my thighs which have been problematic for me even when I was thinner (I never targeted these deposits in my previous weight loss programs, but this time I’d like a more feminine, streamline result, less bulky muscles and I’m really hoping to get at least hint of that elusive “thigh gap”) . Given I’m not using any weights with these raises, do I risk adding bulk to my thighs with this activity ?
