As I mentioned in my very first blog post, I’ve been training (gym) for a little while now. Over 10 years.

Throughout the years I’ve learned a lot. It’s been a pretty exciting journey. I still remember my very first workout. The struggle and the soreness the following morning…

I also remember the millions of questions I had for my first trainer. He must have found me pretty annoying. At a glance training seemed basic to me, but the more I learned, the more I realized how scientific it really was.

You know, I still enjoy working out, but I find myself loosing motivation from time to time. After having reached one goal, then another, then another after that, there is only so much you can do I find. What I’m doing to keep myself motivated these days is  help/mentor my friend’s brother; show him the ropes. I really like it. He now asks himself the same questions I used to ask myself when I began. He also lets me in on his friends’ questions as well.

Obviously, there are recurring questions among fitness newcomers. There also are recurring questions among the initiated as well.

I thought it would be interesting to let you know what my favorite fitness questions are.

Here they are.

They say you should drink a lot of water. Just how much water do I really need to drink though?






Is doing cardio on an empty stomach any good? 


Is it true eating late at night will make you fat? 


If I sweat a lot during my workout does that mean I’m burning more fat?


Is it true that if I do too many push ups my breasts will shrink?







If I want a slimmer waist, will situps and crunches get the job done?

Weight loss





When I stop working out will my muscle turn into fat?


Can I loose fat and build muscle at the same time?


Do I need supplements to get results?






Is it true diets don’t work?


Is it true pregnant women shouldn’t work out?


What are the best foods to eat before a workout?


Should I do my cardio before weights or after?


Why do we get sore after a workout?


Will stretching after a workout eliminate the lactic acid in my muscles?

If there are any questions you would like me to add to the list, feel free to let me know. I’ll be glad to help out.

  2. Just started yoga. I know they recommend doing that on an empty stomach, and being hydrated – drink water. Interesting post. I hadn’t heard the questions about push-ups making your breasts shrink. It made me laugh 🙂 But, I guess it is a serious concern if someone has asked about it.

    I think the post looks great.


    • Yes, the pushup question… Actually, it’s pushups AND bench presses that has some concerned. As for the cardio on an empty stomach, I’ll be glad to addresss that.

      Thanks 🙂

  3. Hi Lucinda. Thank you! I plan of writing posts that are more about food soon. I hope those posts will be more helpful to you.


  4. Good article Dom— your blog is easy to navigate and the font is easy to read. I have no questions because of health issues.

    Your questions are great for those who are into fitness though.
