  • Weights Lifting ... questions

    Assalamu Alaikom


    I have a question ...i have heard that if you start lifting weights and then for some reason stop doing that then your arms will be in much worse shape than before you started lifting weights ...a.k.a flabbier arms than before lifting ! any idea guys ?


    I like lifting weights but ppl keep scaring me of the results if i slack of later and stop doing that.


    Another question....what are the weights you recommend women to start with ..how many kgs ?and when do you know you are ready to lift a heavier weight?


    THANKS EVERYBODY :D

    The bigger they are the more they will sag when they get soft. If you looking to tone up with weights no problem. You muscle mass won't increase just get firmer.

    I suggest 1.5-2.5 kgs.

      not really. if youve built any size on your arms then they will get a bit smaller but the flabbiness thing is IF you dont decrease your calories when you pack in training youll gain some bodyfat there. or bingo wings is the technical term i belive :)

      if your just training to firm up then you need to look at how many reps your doing. aim for a weight that will let you get around 12 reps or so. that weight could 2kgs or 10 kgs, only when you try to get the reps will you find out. the lower the reps you get (around 8 or so) is more a bodybuilding rep range. lower again is stregnth building.

      There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.

        :wswrwb:
        Generally, women do not gain muscle mass like men unless they are on steroids. And worse shape is subjective. I like to think of shape in terms of strength and endurance, not appearance. Start off very light as it seems you are looking to tone. Weight depends on person.

          I'm pretty sure this is an "urban Myth". Muscle does not turn into fat. Like Silures said if you continue to eat the same amount when you are training and not training then that calorie in-take becomes fat and not Muscle. The Muscle itself does not transform.

          Most people don't train constantly, life gets in the way. Personally I can attest to the slight decress in size and not being as "pumped" as while training but nothing as dramatic as "bingo wings" lol

          Edit - The weight programme you(Men) use won't directly translate to the programes that women use. Unless those women want to look more masculine.

                No, Calorie increase is only necessary if you want size gains. You can become stronger or tone without the muscle bulking up (although a strong muscle is generally larger).

                For just toning I'd recommend body-weight excercises. Pilates is also really good despite its "girlie image". A lot of the MMA workouts heavily involve pilates.

                  Pilates are cool..it really helps to tone the body although i do not think it increases size (which i think is great)!

                  Honestly EVERY reply was useful mashaAllah.

                    If you are looking to seriously tone up try ''Insanity''. It's an intense fitness program filled with maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest. No weights for this one. It's not easy but it works.

                        Hmmmm....i seem to have yet another question *facepalm*

                        Can anyone recommend exercises that tone up the triceps muscle (especially)?

                        I follow these exercises

                          In addition to those in the link, straight punches and dips (I don't think dips were there) also work the triceps.

                            The first exercise works the tricep, but you can add bench dips:
                            either
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdDfnjDPjHA
                            or
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=...ture=endscreen

                            the bent knee is easier and you can move the feet further away as you progress, even to the point of adding weights on your lap!




                            EDIT: Just looked through your exercise regime and you seem to be doing enough exercises for the tricep.

                            Sister Geeksupremo is right tarabata burpees, I can feel the pain right now, are very good!

                              try some burpee
