comment How much press strength for human flag?
Nice question, but I'm not sure you're going to find a number anywhere. Plus, there's a skill component involved. Also note that a flag is a push/pull movement, as the upper arm will be pulling.

comment Is there any benefit to being more flexible than is necessary to reach position?
Even if you lose some flexibility, you're still flexible enough to do your thing?

Diet is not a temporary thing, diet is a lifestyle change.

comment Fitness asssesment for boulderers?
"determination" is not a fitness measurement; skin strength is not something that is easily measurable and as far as hand/finger/arm strength is concerned, the same way you measure strength everywhere: being able to perform a certain feat for a given number of reps/time.

comment Arm cross stretching behind the back, how to improve it?
Keep practicing, eg. 60s daily. Identify the specific weakness (on one side the shoulder is rotated internally, on the other externally) and do specific stretches.

comment What are the boundary conditions for effective conditioning?
Have you considered Tabata or other forms of high-intensity interval training? Just 4 minutes of work and very measurable benefits.

comment How to train finger extension?
Can you give me the exact quote from that article? I can't seem to find anything stating one way or the other. I'll also try to find something on it (you're right, I wasn't basing this question on any paper).

comment How does a 5x5 program work on a cut?
If you are still a beginner (as you must be, if you're doing a beginner program), you might still progress from neurological adaptations. Nevertheless, I'm sure at least SS recommends not cutting when doing it.

comment pistol squat mechanics
Like Dave said, it's just balance. Your center of mass is somewhere around your heel or even behind it and you want it to be over the middle of the foot; putting hands in front helps achieve just this. Some people who can't do a pistol suddenly can when holding a 5kg weight in their hands (I guess one of the few exercises where adding weight actually helps).
