Muscle Rigidity?

What is muscle rigidity and how do you know if you have it?

Muscle rigidity is far more than just stiff muscles (say from a workout or running).
True rigidity is something medical doctors look for when examining a person for a serious illness, such as appendicitis.
When an appendix ruptures it spills fecal matter into the abdominal cavity. Therefore all the muscles of the stomach go into spasms and it feels like a brick wall - very hard.
Best luck.  (+ info)

What disease causes neck and back pain and muscle rigidity?

There are too many causes for back-neck pain and muscle rigidity to list here. Some are common to a lot of us and others are the symptoms of some pretty serious medical conditions. If you over exercise, or even sit for too long in one position, you will experience back-neck pain. If you have arthritis or rheumatism, you also could experience pain in that area. If you are experiencing neck-back pain for a while and over the counter meds have not helped and you do not have an idea what is causing the symptoms, it might be time to make an appointment and see your doctor. Your body is good about telling you that somethings needs to be checked out.  (+ info)

What muscle growth supplements really work?

I like to try working out and build some muscles and a 6 pack,there are many muscle growth suplements,but I dont know which one really work? does anyone know about ``Sterodrol``?? it sais in their website that you will gain up to 30 pounds of muscle mass in 30 days. I know steroids are illegal,I am looking for something similar to them but legal with less side effects. Could you please help me find what I am looking for?
Thank you so much.

Seriously not a good idea to use Steredrol, not unless you REALLY know what your doing. I would advise you try Xtreme NO. I had really good results with it when my personal trainer put me on a four week trial of it. My size and strength both shot up! check the link below for the before and after pics.  (+ info)

What is the difference between lean muscle from high reps, and big muscle from low reps?

What is the difference between lean muscle from high reps, and bulk muscle from low reps?
Is there any molecular difference is it just more fat free?
Is it healthier?
I know lean muscle has more endurance.
Would its strength last longer if you just quit lifting?
What can you tell me.
Say between someone that does 8 to 10 reps and someone that does 17 to 20 reps.
And would it make it a better base for muscle if you did you17 to 20 then droped to 8 to 10 and then back up to twenty again?

1-5 reps of maximum weight give mainly strength gains with some muscle gains. 6-12 reps of maximum weight give mainly muscle size gains with some strength gains. 13+ reps give endurance gains, and up to 20 reps a little bit of muscle size/strength . muscle size gains change the appearance of the muscle above all else. endurance gains make pretty much no difference to how a muscle actually looks.

health has no bearing on whether a muscle is strong/big/has lots of endurance.

lean muscle doesnt mean it has more endurance. it means its on a body with a low body fat percentage, and it's big.

training for strength (1-5 reps) gives the longest term results if you were to quit lifting.

if you want to make your muscle look a certain way, avoid going over 15 reps at a time. as said previously, endurance gains do not make muscles look "harder" or "leaner".  (+ info)

How much Muscle in pounds can you build with bodyweight exercises?

I want a rough estimate to how many pounds of muscle can I build with just bodyweight exercises if you are weak to start off with them. I am overweight and I'm planning on building some muscle and losing fat from bodyweight exercises.Will I be able to get abs and a defined, muscular body just by doing bodyweight exercises?When I say defined, muscular body, I'm thinking maybe 25% of the muscle Arnold Schwarzenegger had when he was bodybuilding.

Do you plan on doing any cardiovascular work along with the exercises? you can lose the body-fat and uncover the muscle you already have. You can also tone up the muscles you already have by conditioning exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, lunges, crunches etc.
The average male can naturally only put on 12-15 lbs of lean muscle in a years time. Without strength training with resistance, I'd say you could tone up your existing muscle and probably put on a few (5-7) pounds of additional muscle in a year. Doing the cardio to burn the fat is the most important thing you can do to shed the fat. In fact you would have to do it in order to accomplish your goal. Eating healthy is key as well. I like to recommend the 40-30-30 plan. 40% carbs, 30 % Protein, and 30% fat. Except for dinner, I then suggest only a lean meat and green veggies (low carbs). Don't need them at night, you want your body to burn fat then. My clients saw great results with this. Good Luck Hope this helps.

and ASK ME ANYTHING...... where did you get your info, cuz you're way off base pal!  (+ info)

How long does it take the body to develop one pound of muscle?

I recently bought one of those scales that measure body fat % along with body weight & muscle weigt via a light electric current sent though the body. I am pretty certain it is accurate b/c it is in line with the calpers test two trainers did on me. What my question is, is how long does it take the body to gain muscle? I realize that you cant turn fat into muscle, but that you have to burn fat and the muscle will reveal it's self, However I want to gain muscle over all. I am curious as to how long it will take to gain one pound of muscle in the body. B/c I really cant afford to lose to much muscle (only 94lbs of muscle) And my trainer said that you will loose some muscle initially while losing fat. So I want to bulk up a little so I dont lose to much muscle. Any input is much appreciated.

A pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat, but muscle mass is more compact and only takes up 1/3 the space! If you go on a healthy weight loss program, which includes regular exercise, you will almost certainly gain muscle and lose fat. The scale may stay the same or may even go up, but you lose inches, since muscle takes up less space.

The only way to gain weight is to create a calorie excess. So, in theory, to gain ½ pound to a pound a week, that means creating an excess of 250-500 calories per day. Whether or not those extra calories go towards building muscle or body fat depends on whether or not you exercise. Of course, as with weight loss, genetic differences make it easier for some people to gain weight and harder for others. If your metabolism speeds way up every time you eat more, you may have to consume many more calories before you’ll achieve results  (+ info)

What other muscle group would you recommend training with the abs on a given day?

I tend to isolate two muscle groups per training session. What other muscle should I train when I work my abs?

Also, is it better to work your abs at the start, middle or end of an intense workout?

first off you should be aware that your abs arent just that six pack- your abs are part of a larger group of abdominal muscles( ext abdominal obliques, internal abdominal obliques, rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus, and I'd even include quadratus lumborum, and erector spinae), which all play a role in core stabilization and help resist movement and aid in defecation and coughing as well lol..anyway all of your abdominal muscles shoud be trained somewhat with every workout- not necessarily in isolation, but you can focus on obliques in one workout and abdominal muscles in another, and your back stablizers (QL and ES) on another day i suppose  (+ info)
