I'm training to run my first half-marathon. How much strength training should I be doing? The Editors Santa Fe, New Mexico
I have very underdeveloped pectorals to the point that they are almost breast like. I run and workout often but it doesn't seem to help much. What can I do to fix this problem?
Two sets of 20 reps for each exercise. Complete each exercise before moving on to the next. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

At the Monkey Bar Gym, fitness is fun again
Hiking or backpacking large descents just kill my quads. I did a Grand Canyon backpack last week and the 5000-foot decent just about killed me. Quads felt weak and I didn't feel like I had good control of my legs while descending. I did much better on the climb out several days later. What is the best exercise I can do in the gym to improve my eccentric efficiency and strength of my quads? Thanks! Bill Littleton, CO
