Working Out Questions
Hey everyone! I am a 23 year old, 5'1" women who has been about 90% paleo over the last two years (with the odd couple of about 75% paleo weeks thrown in there). The month before this one I went very off course (no gluten, dairy or soy still), but... (more)
Lift heavy 3-4x/week (mostly compound lifts), sprint 2-3x/week (100 yd sprints at the track), walk 2+ miles daily (during my lunch at work) then some random short runs and bodyweight stuff when I feel like it.

I cut myself with a filet knife whilest peeling a kiwi. It required some stitches and since I work with my hands- time off work, not good. So I was wondering if I should quit working out in order to get this cut to heal faster.
I guess working out is another stressor to recover from, so possibly. Noticeably slower? I don't know... Maybe just scale back the intensity of workouts, do some walking.
I have been following a heavy resistance training programme for a few months now and progress was good until I started Paleo about 3 weeks ago. Since then I haven't noticed any strength gains but have noticed some visible weight loss. I am a bit... (more)
I have taken the last 2 days off from my normal heavy lifting schedule, and have noticed my libido is noticeably higher than normal (that is saying a lot coming from an 18 year old guy). Occasionally, I'll take a whole week off and also notice a... (more)
OK the question is plain do you prefer working out in morning before work or in the evening after work? Or in the middle of the work day? And in case it makes a difference I am talking about crossfit type or resistance training type exercise, not... (more)
