I am having problems with military presses and lateral raises. What muscles are at fault?

10 Answers | Asked by Orlando HARDING on Feb 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 09, 2013

Hi Orlando, most likely the rotator cuff muscles but it is not their fault. Pain during the military press and the lateral raises are often indicators that your rotator cuff muscles are either injured or so overworked that they quit. I would strongly suggest that you lay off both of those...

10 Answers | Asked by Chad Johnson on Feb 08, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 08, 2013

Hi Chad, that sure sounds like the proverbial 'pain in the neck', and I am sorry to hear that you are in so much discomfort. It seems that you have exhausted the traditional routes, and I can empathize with you that pain killers should not be a way of life. Have you considered acupuncture? ...

Has Anyone Tried Suja Juice?

7 Answers | Asked by Jason Davis on Feb 07, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 07, 2013

Hi Jason, I had never heard of it but went to their web site to check it out. It sure is pricey; the 2 cups of lemon water impressed me the most with $7 per bottle! The calorie count on some of them is also rather steep; this is to watch out for, since each bottle contains 2 servings of one cu...

11 Answers | Asked by Ron Benamor on Feb 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 06, 2013

Hi Ron, at this point in time: nothing that I can think of. I know that some people swear by the power of social media but to me it has become an unwelcome source of ever more e-mails in my inbox. From what I can tell: people will find me if they really want to. I also deal with predominantly ...

How to get knots out of back

9 Answers | Asked by Ryan Rogers on Feb 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 06, 2013

Hi Ryan, I suggest that you check out the MELT method. When I teach MELT classes, I usually start with what I call 'a communal back rub', and the result is a groan of relief across the room. You can find information about this method now in a book which just released and has the catchy title 'Th...

To work out or not to work out on HCG diet?

6 Answers | Asked by Edith Roelen on Feb 05, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Feb 05, 2013

Hi Edith, since a client under such restrictions has to be under medical supervision, I would address this question there. I would not deal with that situation on my own without appropriate clearance AND direction. In fact, I would outline a program and have the doctor sign it as approved rather ...
