I work out. I do Muay Thai (competition level intensity)

I work out. I do Muay Thai (competition level intensity) 3 times per week. I am coming up on a 15k on October 7th that I plan on running at a 735 pace per mile. I also do CrossFit 2 times per week. I eat Whole 30 (6 veggie based meals per day) I drink water, green tea, and black coffee ONLY. In fact, most of my money is spent on eating clean. My question. If you were to look at me you would never say I am a fit person just by the way I look. Guys come into the Muay Thai gym and can’t do 10 push-ups, or even last the entire class, they drink, smoke, and eat garbage and they look like GA models. What is wrong with my body? Why do I not show the signs of being fit? No abs. No muscle definition..nothing. It’s incredibly frustrating. My resting heart rate is 50 according to my Apple Watch so I can kind of see the internal fruits of my lifestyle, but why zero external? Is that all genetic?

Hello.I am an arm wrestler and in my sport pain , pulled tendons , tared muscles and even arm breaks are common .iam 100% healthy but i would like if some one could answer this pls First i need to say that we arm wrestlers work on building up our tendons and ligaments for years and strengthening them. If these product will not work well with my tendons there is no way I am gonna use it just to let you know if u are going to suggest me something to take that in consideration. I am thinking of using that cream before the competition to warm my arms and have better circulation . I saw some armwrestlers use some kind of creams but iam not sure if it is this product. probably something similar. should it be safe ? will it help me prevent injuries and help me warm up [ its really hard to warm up at armwrestling. or you get to tierd warming up and it effects you ] armwrestling you will put a great stress at your bones , tendons , ligaments. sometimes muscle Thanks

My 17 yr old son is a competitive wrestler. On occasion when he really pushes himself he experiences chest pain , leading to an obvious lack of blood flow to his brain. He has had a full cardiac work up and his heart checks out ok. Is it possible this is being caused by a build up of lactic acid? I also question his nutritional intake on meet days.

Hi I am a seventeen year old triathlete and yesterday I fractured my wrist falling off my bike. I have to wear a cast now for four weeks which as you can imagine for me is really frustrating as I can t do as much training as I normally would. The doctors gave me a waterproof cast so I can still do my swim training and they said I can cycle on a stationary bike. What I am really worried about though is if I am going to lose lots of fitness in the month I am in a cast as I can t do as much training and when I have the cast removed will it take me ages to gain the strength back in my arm as I have a qualifying race for worlds two weeks after I am supposed to get the cast removed and then nationals a month after. Will I be ok to race these? I have worked hard to get to where I am with my fitness at the moment and I really don t want to lose it.
