Questions about Calories, Exercise, and Women

Question: Nowhere can I find an explanation of how to correctly count calories, for example, bananas or nuts (seeds). After all, a banana in a peel, which by weight is almost 50% of the entire fruit. And nuts in the shell. From what are the calories calculated in the existing tables: from “pure” weight or from a whole unpeeled fetus? As an example: I specifically looked at the packages of peeled and unpeeled nuts in stores – both there and there the calorie content is the same per 100g. But from 100 g of inshell hazelnuts, 50 g of kernels can hardly be obtained. So how many calories do they actually “cost”?

Answer: It is necessary to consider the calorific value of the edible part of the product. That is why the same number of calories was indicated on the labels of nuts with shells and without shells. The same applies to other products – for accurate counting, weigh chicken breasts without bones, oranges without peels, eggs without shells.

Question: How to learn to perform exercises on a photo? or I do not like to perform *** exercise.

Answer: In each exercise, there are two positions: initial and final. When learning a new, you need to concentrate precisely on these two STATIC statements.

And not on the move when performing an exercise that is performed, as a rule, along the shortest path. Once the brain fixes these two positions, you can add weight weights.

Before that, I recommend using 50% of the maximum weight of the load, i.e. weight with which you can do the number of repetitions and approaches specified in the training program.

And it is a lot of weight and improper exercise that causes discomfort from training. As soon as you master the technique and select the right load, the exercise and training will be fun.

Question: Should women’s weight training be different from men’s?

Answer: Yes and no. Although women are different from men, they have different biomechanics and hormonal status, but they can follow the same training programs as men.

No physiologist has yet discovered any special types of muscle tissue or exercise technique specific to any gender. But at the same time, there are differences between each individual person – regardless of their gender.

Therefore, the difference between some training programs and complexes from others is determined by the goals and individual characteristics of each person.
