comment not feeling abs working out
Also see this q/a about abdominal exercises. You may also need to stretch your hip flexors and lumbar muscles to help correct your anterior tilt. As you mention, your weight gain is causing an increase in your tilt and the best way to address this is thru proper diet, not only how much you are eating but what you are eating. In addition to a good diet, you may benefit from an evaluation by a physical therapist (physio) to help you learn an appropriate exercise program to balance out your pelvis.

comment How to develop sensitivity of hands and arms?
Sorry I don't fully understand your question. I suggested you work on the accuracy of your spins to help improve your "touch" to recognize what is "too much" or "too little" to achieve the spin you want, with the depth and placement that you want. I suggested this as a drill because you learn a skill and touch with repetition. I suggested that having acquired the skill with drills that you put that skill, namely spins, into action in a game where it counts. If you do not have control over your spins your shots may be too long or too short. Did that answer your question?

comment Pressups on fingers to get bigger wrists - am I doing more harm than good? What precautions to take?
@Victory also there are additional q/a about finger push ups and knuckle pushups, knuckle pushups that you may find helpful. If you do go with finger pushups begin with partial weight bearing such as pushups from your knees instead of your feet until the fingers/tendons strengthen enough. Good luck.

comment Squatting with bruised knee
Since you are working on form, if the knee allows you to complete the motion with good alignment and without deviating or working around it, you should be ok. However if this is a recurrent problem you may want to have your knee checked out professionally. Pain can cause muscle inhibition which can work against what you are trying to accomplish.

comment Underweight. What should I do?
Did you use the BMI calculator for teens or for adults? If you are underweight you should make sure that your doctor has checked to see if there is a medical reason. Your doctor may decide that you are healthy and your weight is appropriate for your size of frame and age. Or they may do some tests. Also consider not only how much you are eating, but what you are eating that causes your belly to bloat. Ask your doctor for a recommendation for a dietician to help you set up a healthy diet. Good luck.

comment I have a back pain from sitting. Can I still run?
@used, yes he said he got back pain after 2 days of prolonged sitting if I understand correctly. He (or she) did not say that he/she has tight hip flexors or a tight thoracic spine. Those are assumptions you made. Whether or not a lot of other people get tight hip flexors and a tight T spine from prolonged sitting is not the point when recommending a specific exercise to someone with a specific pain condition. The thoracic rotation exercise and/or running may aggravate the symptoms depending on the actual dysfunction. That is why it is in the medical advice realm and off topic imo.

Sorry to down vote your answer, but it sounds as if you are diagnosing the cause of his back pain and then prescribing a solution.

comment Fitness plan for an achieving high school freshman
The core exercise you describe that your Dad does sounds like a "plank". This abdominal exercise q/a includes planks as well as other core exercises. Also, for a "high-academic achieving young student" this posture q/a will give you some good exercises to keep your trunk balanced while you spend long hours studying!
