I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

+1 I'm interested by your mention of a 1.5 hour pre-workout carb timing window. I've seen several discussions about post-workout timing, but not pre-. Can you point me to any references? I'd love to do some reading.

comment Running out of energy before feeling muscle stress
@Pibara I don't entirely disagree with your recommendation. I particularly agree with your advice re: pre-workout fruit. (Though I rarely see those referred to as "bad" carbs, especially by people I trust.) However, I stand by the core claim of my answer: transitioning into and out of ketosis tends to make a lot of people bonk.

There are many, many, many approaches, of which the approaches he mentions are a couple of.

comment If I lift on the moon will I get stronger?
Requiring that someone understand the physics behind the question they're asking seems a bit backwards. It's not the most useful question but it's not an insane thing to ask. And it's certainly not "opinion-based", as one close vote argues.

It sounds like you're conflating time spent in the moon's gravity and time spent in zero gravity.

That's a lot of supplements. How much are you paying this guy to give you pills? Have you considered seeing how you do while just eating food?

@JordanCarroll History on the demonization of squats: "The Knee Is Not For Bending", the science of which has been discredited as Schoenfeld and Beardsley discuss. On the positive side (that is, to specifically support my claim), squats strength the muscles that support the knee, and are a "use it or lose it" movement. If you don't squat, then soon your knees (and hips, and ankles) will not be able to support you squatting. And then it is bad for you, but not out of any inherent quality.

@JordanCarroll Schoenfeld (PDF) is a good start, but you've put me in a bit of a prove-a-negative situation. What do you think is dangerous about squats other than having a preexisting issue?

Which isn't to say that I disagree with the formulation in your answer--after all, any movement can cause injury--but the idea that squats are dangerous is ill-grounded. Pathology is dangerous; if you can't squat you have a problem you need to fix.
