Got anything to talk about relating to working out, here's the place
Simple answer, by 'eck - don't have babies!!!!
I'm agreeing with Gastank - gym work is a win-win, in moderation.
Anyway, I'm off to the gym to do 1000 bicep curls with two biro's...

ok, i can def do the biro curl
abdominal muscles parting in pregnancy can occur but often it deprends on how strong they were beforehand..ususally some sit ups as soon as is safe after birth remedies it.
gastank, i supose the aesthetic side of things is just a thing ive grown up with having had to look 'right' for ballet and gymnastics. its a pain though and the downfall is it can get obsessive.
to a non-athlete or dancer such a person can look super fit and toned..when you are one 24/7 you take on the opinion that its never quite enough and the continual search for ' a bit more' ' and a bit better' is always present....
Hi RR,gastank and little LLB- This is a scary thread for me!!!!!!!!! I do want to would strengthen my upper body as I believe it could help me improve my times.
At the moment I struggle to find time for the gym on top of the running that I do. What exerceises with minimal equipment would people suggest I od at home? Don't have the space for any large equipment.
Well, according to what I've read, stronger arms improves your running. On the face of it, that doesn't make much sense, but I suppose when it comes to sprinting it might.
AF - I'd bet money that you've got a stronger upper body than me!!
It was having twins that separated my abdominal muscles 8 yrs ago, and although i do sit ups/crunches several time a week and have for years I still have a small gap that won't close.
Thanks for the advice on chin ups. That is what I shall aim for first.... It's my birthday next month and have asked my hubby to get a bar... that way he'll get the one that he wants to use too
Thanks, Gas. It might not matter either way for a while now. Last night while doing the cardio warmup for my resistance session, my knee began hurting. It's a very gentle exercise, hardly puts any pressure on the knee at all - the arms do most of the work - yet it was enough to set it off. So, no running and no leg weights for me - until I find out why this keeps happening and deal with it.
This is so frustrating, I went for the best part of two years without any injury at all while running. Now I'll probably be kicking my heels for another six weeks.
