Ever try any of the calorie counter / exercise tracking apps? I used to use myfitnesspal periodically to track calories for a few days to see where I was at. Then recently I think the app was taken over by underarmor and the ads became unbearable. Do you know of any particularly good apps that do the same/similar thing that I should consider? I am particularly wanting to be able to quickly track calories (but I guess other features could be useful as well). I am just trying one called Lufesum now and it seems pretty good.

I briefly used Lose It! but like My Fitness Pal better, but that's just me. But since there is a free version of Lose It! I think you should try it.

I have tried numerous apps. Everything from cycling, weightlifting, running, even downloaded a push-up app to help with daily push-ups.

They all fall short on one thing or the other. I currently use no apps.

I see the same thing all the time. It's very unfortunate that many people don't know how to properly lift weights. Gym-rats as I like to call them, talk about how much weight they can lift and who can do more reps. There are a lot of egos in the gym. Most of these guys have themselves been injured or know someone training like this have been injured.

The TUT technique has been proven by both medical professionals, personal trainers, and professional body builders.

Taking this approach and utilize drop sets, single sets, super sets, combo sets, progressive sets and dynamic sets will dramatically change our Physique in half the time and maintain proper balance with muscle growth with less injuries.

If anyone here is into lifting weights, they should strongly consider this approach.

Basically it's timed sets.

More people are concerned about getting their reps done; they do it as fast as they can and sometimes in harmful ways.

Time under tension (or TUT) as is it refers to how long a muscle is under strain during any given set. A typical set of 10 reps for an average lifter will take anywhere from 15-28 seconds depending on lifting speed. By putting a muscle under longer stress, we can cause extensive muscle breakdown leading to sleeve-busting muscles. And the best part, you use less weight.

So take a gym-rat who is using 100lb dumbbells and he get's his 5-7 reps in as fast as possible to finish his set. He hasn't broken the muscle down enough to be really effective. Now take a person is using TUT.. Give that person half the weight (50lbs) and it takes him 40-60 seconds to complete his set. During that time the muscle is under strain and it breaks down the fibers causing hypertrophy much faster, and because it's less weight, it will not injure your shoulders as if you were to pick up 100lb dumbbells.
