Bicep question

Why do my biceps only ever get sore where the muscle attaches in the front of my arm where my elbow bends? Other muscle groups get sore in the entire muscle, but I’ve never had the peak of my bicep sore or the upper bicep sore. Any thoughts?

Gaining Flexibility...?

Flexibility was never my strongest point; even when I was an athlete. I was a sprinter in High School, and very fast, I had some flexibility, but not a lot. I studied the Martial Arts, I could snap kick someone in the head, but I could never hold my leg up that high. To make a long story short, in...

Hey, I was just recently diagnosed with low iron. My levels came back at 20 when the range is 30-160. I’ve been noticing I’m gassed a lot faster these days and my muscles burn like crazy after just a few reps but I push through anyway and always have. For some reason I just thought that was...

How much cardio is too much?

Hi! I am 53. My entire life I've been the square, strong shape rather than the slim, endurance type. Cardio has been something I've suffered through. At last I've found a workaround, that means I enjoy cardio. I look forwards to cardio in the gym and incorporate it more. But... so far in my...

Fat to muscle...?

I'm fairly new to paying attention to what I am trying to do as far as working out and exercise ise. I used to just go do it, with out a real goal. My question is, if I want to turn fat into muscle, is that considered maintaining my weight while I just lift with little cardio?
