A jog and then a lighter weight is a good way to do it. For a proper warm-up, the first thing to do is get your muscles warm and get your blood pumping. The easiest way to do that is with the bigger muscles of the leg with a light jog or a stationary cycle in the gym. Then you have to prepare the mu...

Ask a trainer to help you set up a program. Explain to them your fitness goals. Emphasize that you want to work on speed and power, balance and agility to help your gameplay.

"Fatstripper" has L-carnitine, choline, inositol, chromium piccolinate The first three don't do much and the last one is okay in small amounts. None of them do all that much. The dirty little secret about dietary supplements is that a supplement that actually has a significant pharmacological effect...

It's called a "pump". After hard exercise there is increased blood flow in a muscle. The muscle really is slightly larger, harder, and the veins are more prominent. The easiest way to do this is to end your workout with a couple of high rep sets with light weight using exercises that isolate a speci...

The whole point of weight training or any fitness training is to impose a stress that your body has to adapt to by getting stronger or better condition. That soreness the day after involves a repair and rebuilding process that, if allowed to work correctly, results in a stronger, more efficient musc...

Like Christopher said, it is better to get out and do something than nothing. I have a rating system for delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). How much money are you willing to bend down and pick up? For a 50 cent workout, sure, go out and jog. For a $5 workout, you might want to just try a stationa...

I would separate weights and sprints if doing either to exhaustion. Combining them means that fatigue is going to affect the intensity of the second one. It only works for me because I don't exhaust myself in the weight room. 3 sets of 5 reps, none of the sets to failure, leaves me feeling pretty go...
