Weight lifting is anaerobic, so no it isn't going to burn fat, but it will tone your muscles up. If your looking to burn fat then you should do running/skipping/swimming. Long distance, slow paced exercise is best. Maybe the process of weightlifting itself won't burn fat but an increase in muscle m...

Bread in general has carbohydrates galore, which is essential for your body to burn while exercising. Obviously, white flour has been stripped down so much it's really 90% empty nutrients, and so are most store-bought 'whole wheat' breads. But if you go with the multigrain and the like, there shoul...

No, bread is not healthy and neither are 99% of boxed cereals with the exception of some all natural granolas.

Sprouted grains are okay though, but most people have trouble processing flour (refined OR unrefined).

and thighs. What do you think your quads and hamstrings make up bro???? lol hamstrings arn't your thigh that's why theres a machine specifically for thighs and one for hamstrings. Machines are overrated. Use free weights if you actually want to be strong. Strength is not just how much you can lift....

Grass-fed butter is fine, just not your typical grocery store butter. You would have to buy it online, though, so I doubt many users would actually take that advice. It depends exactly how much you are invested into your health. Do a little research through google on grass fed butters, meats, and fr...

I wasn't even talking about pro, though, although that's true too. I meant in general women's youth soccer, and I include college in youth, is better here than anywhere else.

Scholarships aren't on a first come, first serve basis. They are based on how much the coach wants you to play for them.

I don't disagree. But you have to admit that many players don't see it that way. I would love to play for a school that is very strong academically and with good athletics. And I absolutely plan on it. However, many people just go to the best athletic school they can and I don't think that's a major...

Okay, but you're going from "college soccer does nothing for development" to you need to find the best of both worlds and pick an educationally suiting college with a soccer program on par with your level of playing. I'm just saying college soccer absolutely helps your development and makes you a be...

IMO college soccer does nothing for your development. Academics should be your main focus. You also have to keep a certain gpa in order to play. In college soccer you also have unlimited subs. You'll play about 10 games in the fall, maybe more if you make a conference tournament run. You'll then pl...

If you were training your legs would you do 11 different exercises or a few hard ones? That's all I have to say.
