Has anyone ever gotten a "Knee Effusion" or water in the knee? how long does it take to heal? Is there anything permanent? And can someone provide a workout program for upper body since i cant use my legs? Thank youOne man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes, another for 30 days, but it is the man who has it for 30 years who makes a success of his life.

build boulder shoulders
Do you want to look big and strong?,
Well if so you do big shoulders are essential, but how do you build boulder looking shoulders?.
Well one of the first things you should learn is the anatomy of the shoulders
There are three parts of the shoulder
The front front part of the deltoid is the anterior delt , this part of the delts is hit through many exercises so
you should go careful not to over work it.
Exercises that really hit the anterior delt include
db shoulder press
cable front raise
You anterior delt is also hit when doing incline presses for your upper chest so it can be easy
to over train the muscle
The lateral deltoid is the middle head of your shoulders, this muscle is the one that gives the illusion
of boulders which give you a broad look and is essential for the famous v taper look.
Exercises which work the lateral delt and cap of your shoulders are
shoulder db press
db side raises
cable side raises
A well developed lateral deltoid is highly needed for perfect aesthetics and and a well balanced physique
The rear delt is the back head of the shoulders and is often ignored which is bad for a number of reasons
1.It can lead to injuries
2.Can lead to a unbalanced physique
The rear delt is a small muscle so to work it well you should have a weight that you can keep strict form with
Exercises for the rear delt are
db rear delt raise
reverse cable fly
lying rear delt row
All exercises can be find at http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/
SHOULDER WORKOUT FOR WELL BALANCED DELTS
A perfect delt workout should include a mixture of compound and isolation exercises
rear delt raise-3x12
side cable raise-3x12
reverse cable fly-3x10
Good luck on your journey to building broad and boulder looking shoulders and all your bodybuilding goals in 2012

OMRON Fat Loss Monitor, Athlete or Normal?
This morning I weighed myself at 167 lbs, stats are 5'9.5" 167. On the OMRON digital body fat monitor, I averaged three measurements on the normal and athlete settings, and got these.
Normal - 20.3%
Which one is accurate, as in if I took a caliper measurement which one would it be more close too? I was puzzled by this earlier because I thought body fat percentage was one set in stone number, which maybe fluctuates with means, but not by too much. Like weight on a scale, there is only one set number regardless of athletic ability, and that number doesn't fluctuate too much unless you have an awful scale. (Ex: I was 167 on my scale this morning, on another scale I might be 167-169, or 165-167, but is body fat a non-set number unlike scale weight?)November 2010- 226 lbs.
July 2011- 159 lbs.
Former 200+ pound crew
What's my motivation? The kid that told me I'd grow up and be fat, the kid who told me my stomach was getting smaller when I was becoming healthy, the person that told me I couldn't, the person that told me I could, those who support me, and those who don't. I don't have one source of motivation, it's endless for me, but in the end... it's for me.

Opti-Men Multi-Vitamin preworkout?
I was wondering if the "Opti-Men Multivitamin" could be taken pre-workout along with a banana? I really don't feel like dumping more money into a pre-workout energy booster when I can basically get the same results from the stuff that is in the multi-vitamin and banana.
What do you think?

Hi guys new to the forum and looking for a bit of advice from more experienced people.
I've been doing a bit of weight training for about 6 months and changed quite a bit but now I wanna take the next step.
I weigh 80kgs and I'm just under 6ft. I train with weights about 4 times a week and cardio twice.
I wanna build up a bit more but also aim for a bit of definition.
I'm aim to target biceps / back twice a week, chest / triceps twice and chest once if I can fit it in aswell as keeping my cardio. But keeping one day a week rest.
I also aim to take on 200 grams of protein per day (between lean meat and shakes) eat carbs only at lunch, drink 10 cups of water and 3 cups of green tea, and otherwise eat as clean as possible.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

4 Minutes in Hell NEVER Felt So Good
Imagine a workout so short and so intense that in the amount of time it takes you to prepare a TV dinner (which I don’t recommend consuming), you could have warmed up, worked out, and be cooling down. A workout so intense that your legs burn with the intensity of the sun and you can hardly raise your shoulders from your side because of that intense sensation of exhaustion and pride. The workout I’m talking about is a Tabata Interval workout.
What is it?
The Tabata Protocol is a specific formula that falls under the category of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Lets break down HIIT bit by bit. The ‘HI’ is for high intensity, this workout thrives when used by people who understand that you get what you work for. If you work as hard as possible, you will see the best results in the shortest amount of time. The ‘IT’ is for interval training, and this is where the rules of the system come from. A typical HIIT workout has a work period followed by a rest period. The two are cycled back and forth for a set number of rounds or until complete muscular failure.
It is a simple system that sounds so much easier than it really is. I’m going to walk you through my favorite version of this workout but please note that you should consult your physician before trying any new workout routines or lifestyle changes.
How do I do it?
The Tabata protocol goes through the process of designing our interval lengths for us, but we get to choose what workout we do. I do this at home where I do not have access to an exercise bike similar to that Dr. Tabata used in his original study. This means I have to improvise something that will push me to the brink without requiring any purchase. The exercise I have chosen is something I call the “Squat Thruster.” This exercise is also known by a much more boring name, the dumbbell squat to front press (click that link for a video of how the exercise is performed). I use two water bottles filled with sand as improvised dumb bells (I don’t recommend going above 5 lbs for your first workout). Once we understand what workout we will be doing and the proper way to do it, we can move forward to our warm-up.
The warm-up is important because without this crucial step, we are more prone to injuries, and incapable of performing at our true peak. I will do jumping jacks until I can feel the first bit of sweat appearing on my face. I follow this with a set of 5-10 push-ups and then some light stretching. My stretches will focus on the muscle I will be using the most during my Tabata workout (hips, hamstrings, shoulders, triceps).
Lets Do It!
Now that we’re warm and limber it’s time to begin. Use a clock or a smart phone app of your choice to time your workout because the timing of the intervals is of the utmost importance. In a Tabata workout we want to set our work interval to 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. We will repeat this cycle 8 times for a total of 4 minutes. As you read this, you need to realize that the intensity of this workout should be of the highest variety. You need to struggle to fit as many reps of the squat thruster in to every 20 second interval. By the eighth round, you should be in pain and struggling to finish 10 reps in 20 seconds. If the intensity is right and you push to your limit, all the benefits of Tabata training will manifest within you. Some of the benefits you can look forward to are accelerated fat loss, increased lung volume, and a sweet endorphin rush. Good luck!
Please remember to keep yourself well Hydrated! This is not a workout for the feint of heart! Make sure your body has the fuel to carry you through this!

I have noticed that many teenagers around my age (~17yo) who goes to gym with me sleeps only <7hours a night and then they are talking about how they dont recover enough fast.
Im sleeping 8-9 hours every night and im fine with recovering from training 5 times a week at gym.
