This question was originally asked by Snowy. He works out 6 days a week, and does a split routine of push-ups one day and pull-ups another day.
Snowy has not seen results in the last 1 month in both of these exercises. What is Snowy doing wrong?
He does 3 sets of 25-30 pushups and 3 sets of 7-10 pullups. The following video will help see results once again! :)
Did you you know that the origin of marathons is attributed to a Greek soldier named Pheidippides in 490 B.C.? It is believed that he ran from Marathon to Athens, approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers), after having fought in battle to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon. Needless to say, this guy had quite a journey to make [especially considering that he collapsed and died upon fulfilling his run] [I kind of prefer leaving this until the end, where I come back to this story - JJ]! When the modern Olympics began, the idea of “marathons” as an event was created to revive some of Greece’s famous legends and folk heroes such as Pheidippides.
For weight loss / weight gain - the answer is no! It doesn’t matter if our Calories come from two double cheeseburgers, a large fry, a side apple pie with a diet coke or from a homemade salad with red leafy lettuce, feta cheese, and organic baby carrots grown in your backyard.
Time under tension is the amount of time you put your muscles under tension while working out. For example, I could flush out 60 pushups, but if I decided to slow down my pushup time, and use the 2-1-2 method (2 seconds down, 1 second hold, 2 seconds up), suddenly, I would find that the number of pushups I can do will half!
