comment How is it possible to use a higher percentage of our theoretical strength?
He may be referencing the cases where people are able to lift cars off of other people in extreme emergencies (where it's often credited to an adrenaline dump). That said, I suspect these heros would be quite sore the next day and could do a lot of damage to themselves - our bodies set limits to protect us.

comment Is there any benefit of “real” running outdoors vs running on a treadmill in gym?
Owning a treadmill helps even more in the heat and sweat department. I have a treadmill in my basement which allows me to point a large floor-fan at me which generates more wind than running would and I don't have to wear a shirt at all!

comment When are electrolyte/sports drinks necessary?
Great advice. That last guideline is something I'll look out for.

comment When are electrolyte/sports drinks necessary?
Amazing response. The thought of as little as 1.5 L of water in an hour being fatal is quite concerning. I think that I'll start mixing a bit of sports-drink powder into my water when I do cardio from now on. I can't cut back on my water intake since it is not artificial - I'm just always thirsty and I overheat easily.

comment Exercises for a programmer sitting by the PC all day
Keep yourself safe at your desk with RSI-related stretches. This site has a bunch of good examples.

comment Are amount and location of knee pain good indicators of what is wrong?
I get some moderate knee pain when I run - I find that a couple of Advil before running helps to keep the pain in check.

comment What's the most effective way to improve cardio endurance?
A very interesting technique. Unfortunately, an hour per day is far more time than I am willing/able to put into this. I have started running again only because my wife bought a treadmill for our basement.
