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).

comment Is it normal to crave for lemons after running
I think its off-topic for this site, but lemons are delicious! When I remember to buy them, I can eat 1-2 a day.

comment How to strengthen *very gently* your grip in order to safely perform chin-ups? Are wrist wraps good?
There's a bunch of good wrist mobility exercises described in this pdf, try doing them once a day or even more often (the PDF also has bodyline exericses which you could try, but then moves on to gymnastic skill work which you might not be interested in). There's also a related question here on the site. BTW, my father is approaching 60 and he can manage about 7 chins, having started from zero 2 years ago - just stck to it!

comment How many Burpees do I have to do per day to lose a lot of fat fast?
It might also be a good idea to track progress, so something like: 6/6/6/6/5/5/3/4 = 41. Helps with the motivation to see that you've actually improved in time (since the effort should always be perceived as maximal).
