EDIT: Yep.

Moderate exercise will not cause you or anyone else to bulk up. And women do not bulk up the way men do in any event.

The Hulk Hogans of this world work out all day almost every day.

You can see some examples of what that means here:

See a professional and get information from experts that will help you . Asking for information on a site like this from people you do not know from a bar of soap is a recipe for a thread to turn to mush, as has already started before I even got here with the typical conspracy theories and dragging up ancient history . Good to see the usual recidivist offenders are keeping up their typical modus operandi

I agree with TeXMeX here, Brian, you really shouldn't have said that. Now,
don't dare to mention the word "salt" here! Who knows, they might be monitoring
this thread and waiting for someone to talk about salt so that they can rip
him up all over again!

I didn't ask any advice on injections and pills. Did I?
In the other thread linked by Dugan, all I asked was the doctor's "name".

Now if someone wants to talk about salts and medicines, that's not my fault.

Besides, this is what I actually asked here:

Is this sort of question going to kill me or anyone else?
LQ is surrounded by men, and men usually do push-ups, so I thought people might be
knowing something about it here.
Though I appreciate the concern, but I do think that there isn't any need for people
to start nitpicking.
I am NOT going to take anyone advice here "for granted" for sure. I do research always
before dealing with my body issues.

Saying it again:

I haven't done pushups since high school. It doesn't matter for me, I prefer aerobic exercise. Anyway, Anisha Kaul has mail.

I did read an article where women (I make a huge assumption that you are female) can increase bone density by running. These studies are never very good. The ladies that run may be health nuts and eat well, and get rest and also do exercise.

When I was a kid a guy named Jack La Lane would be on tv and do simple exercises. One of them was a deal with a chair. One would put their chest on the chair and lift either or both legs. I have found that and a similar exercise to be the best for my back. The next was a deal where you layed down on the floor on belly. Then lifted legs and arms and wiggled them in opposite motion for a 10 count. Then relax. Do that 4 or 5 time every few days and see if it helps your back.

As with all this, consult a doctor who can decide if you are healthy enough.

Did you decide this was true using "common sense" or confirm it with experiment?

Er, no I read some books and did some exams on biology when I was younger. Plus I have since done a lot of weight trainging myself and have never found a muscle that wouldn't grow.

Never occured to me that someone might not know this really. Muscle tissue is muscle tissue. There are a few subdivisions of muscle types but they all respond to being exercised in the same way. i.e. exercise = muscle damage = healing and size increase.

Go look at some body building web sites. They may be strange obsessive people but you cannot deny that they know whereof they speak.

I guess the question is more about the exercise than the muscle tissue. What do you think about the claim that more than 20 reps won't increase muscle size? I suppose the explanation would be that such low intensity exercise doesn't cause muscle damage?

As per your earlier post, its probably the scooter driving that you do.

Calcium supplements under a doctor's prescription coupled with gentle yoga should do.

OK

Why on earth not?

Its a reasonable suggestion, even if (at least IMO and from what I've heard from medical sources) multivitamin and mineral tablets alone wont solve the problem, and low bone density isn't always conencted to a calcium deficiency.

From personal experience.

One example is I'm an x-screenprinter. When I started I would do maybe 2000-3000 reps with very low weight loadings and pick up 10-15KG 100+ times a day. I put on muscle, and so did everybody elseI know who did the same job.

P.S

AFAIK, you're a male. (I know you weren't replying to me.)

I will stand by what I originally said. Anisha (a chick) is not going to bulk out into a bodybuilder by doing pushups.

I remember that little word-war was over iodine, not salt......

*checks in pants* Yep, male.

I wasnt ever saying that doing some pushups will bulk Anisha up. Check post #8.
