comment Would Tabata be any good on a stationary bike?
@Phizzy You should post that as its own question! :D I'd say it should be somewhere in the middle. Experiment to find which setting makes it possible to exert the most energy as fast as possible.

comment Why can't I lose weight?
-1 First sentence is blatantly false: "Just eating less or eating healthy is not going to single-handed make you lose weight"

comment Is there any benefit to Touch-and-Go Deadlifts?
@Ryan I find that the process of re-gripping and re-setting my back at the bottom, while useful and which I obviously prefer for sets anywhere near maximal, takes too much time for me to get into a good rhythm for endurance or conditioning work. When I'm doing dead-stop sets of 5 at ~350 I find that touch-and-go sets of 8 at just under 300 are quite helpful to train the same muscles without giving them rest. Perhaps I would be better served by back extensions for that purpose? But I'm certainly not going to dead-stop/full-reset my warm-ups at 225.

comment Stronglifts 5x5: Is it that important to keep a ratio of different weights lifted in different exercises?
The OP can almost certainly squat and deadlift 36kg today, meaning those lifts won't linearly progress at all.

comment Suitable gym routine for a toned body?
@EricKaufman I'm about 1% away from marking it as a duplicate...except I think my answer (for example) to the other question is a bit male-centric. An answer oriented towards a female hormone profile could be quite useful here.

comment Is there any benefit to Touch-and-Go Deadlifts?
@LarissaGodzilla I try to touch very gently on touch-and-go. No CrossFit-style bouncing deadlifts here. That helps me maintain plenty of tension.

comment When to start working front muscles for a person with kyphosis?
@EricKaufman I think one of our goals is to elicit the answers of knowledgable people, whether physical therapists, trainers who've worked with clients like this, or people who've had this condition and worked through it.

comment Can you gain strength in your legs with bodyweight squats only?
@Mephisto The first point of failure in maximal squats for most people is the lower back, not the legs. It's just about equal between the legs, glutes, and spinal erectors in my experience.

comment Can you gain strength in your legs with bodyweight squats only?
"You cannot go wrong with leg presses"—except that the leg press is a leg exercise, whereas the squat is a back-and-legs exercise. It is not a substitute.

@Mephisto Remember, the leg press is a leg exercise, whereas the squat is not.
