what specific recommendations would you make to your neighbor as he begins his fitness odyssey?
Weegy: To reinforce the importance of "going slow" I told my neighbor that perhaps the greatest battle he would have fight to get fit and reach his goal was with himself to keep his "going slow" truly "slow" and not "half-fast" until it was time to [ increase his workout pace and intensity in one or two months when he was ready to increase it safely without risk of injury or illness. Again, he profusely thanked me for explaining to him why in the past given enough time with any of his workouts he'd either get burned out, injured, or became ill and eventually quit the program. To help him keep his "Slow" this time around to succeed with his new fitness program and achieve his fitness goals, I told him to implement the following proven recommendations used by those who know how to create a sustainable fitness program: Make it easy to do your workouts – Try to conserve as much time as possible doing your workouts. If you can save time by doing them at home, then do them at home, rather than go to the gym. But, if you need the structure and companionship of the gym to get the workout done then go to the gym. Never rush to complete your workouts – Always give yourself enough time to do your workouts and if you run out of time or find yourself not having enough time on a particular day to do your complete workout then reduce the reps and sets for each exercise of your workout to make you do all the workout exercises as its better to do all the exercises with few reps than a few exercises with all the reps. Keep your pace – Always keep your rest periods between sets the same during a workout so your workouts a finish on time with the proper effort to rest ratio. Be able to do more reps, but don't – At the end of each exercise set, have enough energy to do more repetitions as this will insure you that you'll have the energy to complete your workout. Have realistic expectations – The first goal when starting a new fitness program is to make sure you can do it over the ... (More)

What are the major muscles in the human body and where are they located?
Weegy: Of the 600-plus muscles within the human body, there are 11 major muscles. These major muscles are categorized as voluntary skeletal muscles and are controlled by the somatic nervous system. [ Each major muscle possesses its own joint action and is identified by its origin (the attachment point at which the muscle begins) and its insertion (the attachment point where the muscle ends). To improve overall strength, endurance and functionality, The American College of Sports Medicine recommends training these muscles at least two times per week, performing resistance exercises consisting of one set of eight to 10 repetitions. ] (More)

What happens to the muscular ssystem as a persson enters late aadulthood?
Weegy: Muscle strength and flexibility decrease with age. A major reason muscles tend to become weaker is that there is less lean muscle mass and they shrink from lack of use. It happens whether a person is young or old. [ As muscles are not used, they don’t work as well. The capacity to assure strenuous effort gradually declines. You eventually become less able to walk as far or lift as much as you used to. This is because skeletal muscles atrophy (shrink with age). Conditioning is the most dominant factor influencing this rate of decline. ] (More)
