    I just wanted to be toned....

    Discussion started by bodice_ripper - May 20, 2003

    Just a little question for those who are into this sort of thing



    basically college just ended, and I started going to the gym - 3 days on, 1 day off, 3 days on etc......
    doing about 45 minuted on a cross trainer and then weights.



    After a few days of this, i've been getting pretty severe pains in my legs, esp my knees, at night. I can't sleep. Yes i do stretches before and after I go to the gym. I'm concerned that perhaps I am to short (five foot one) for on of the leg extension machines...but I'm not sure



    What would be the best way to stop/ lessen this pain (without stopping going to the gym...:p )?

    a heating pad??

    .......
    or maybe a sensual nude massage performed by your saucy girlfriend, dressed in a naughty school girl outfit.

    I don't really know much about cross trainers...or the inside of a gym for that matter.

    I'd probably take your cross trainer time down to 30 minutes. Increase it say 5 minutes every week or two until your up to the 45. Icy hot or a heat pad for the pain. If you think its inflamed...take 4 advil every 8 hours. I'm assuming there is no swelling and that the pain is more of an ache than cramping.

    On your days off, go for a light walk or something for about 30 minutes. An easy workout will help your legs recover faster. Diet wise...I would say...eat more meat. Protein will help your recovery.

    then go with uncles second option.

    if you belong to a ghetto gym, then i would ask someone who you feel is a regular, and used the machine to help you set the weights....


    if you belong to a nicer gym, just ask some of the trainers, they are more then willing to help you out...


    also, i wouldnt run on the same day you do legs....


    i havent been to the gym in like 4 months.....good grief

    alternate your work outs, dont do this 3 days 1 day thing.

    One day legs let them rest one day upper.
    or One day major musle groups, one day lower.
    Your muscles need a day to repair themselves.

    and about the leg and knee pain, try running on an eliptical trainer its zero impact.

    "and about the leg and knee pain, try running on an eliptical trainer its zero impact."


    dood those things are so bad ass....but im still somewhat hesistant about em....i mean i run for like 45 min, burn like 500 something calories, and sweat, but i associate the pain of running with its effectiveness....does that make sense?? like i was brought up with pain equals a good work out....


    probably wouldnt hurt if i just quit smoking either.....

    if your joints hurt, you're doing it wrong.

    if your muscles are sore, you're doing it right

    Take it from him, he's ripped.

    This is what I do.
    M/W/F Cardio plus abs and arms
    T/TH/Sat Cardio plus legs
    All the cardio instructors emphasize that you should try avoiding strain on the knees by slightly bending them while working out.
    Like while on the stair master for example, I don't stand so that my knees are completely straight. I leave room for them to be kept a tiny bit bent at all times. Does that make sense?

    this just needed to be repeated. typically (at least on a bike) if your knees hurt in the front...your not getting enough extension. if it hurts in the back of your knees....your extending them too far and need to prevent the full extension of your knees. You need to keep a slight bend in them.
