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

comment Does not starting with the empty bar in StrongLifts 5x5 really hinder your ability to add weight every workout?
@FredrikD What's mythical about it? No program goes on forever. That doesn't mean it's useless or untrue. Anyway, every full-length description of linear progression I've seen describes how to identify its end stages and when to start periodizing.

@ChristopherBruce If I could hit 225x5x5 today, I'd start StrongLifts somewhere near 185, which is a ~20% deload.

@ChristopherBruce PR 1RM of 225, or PR 5RM, or PR 5x5RM?

comment Mass doubling for a healthy man from marathon training (summer) to weight training (winter)? Normal?
Are you proposing that you're going to cycle each year between lifting and marathoning? I also don't see where you doubled your mass--the closest is a near-doubling over five years. I also am unclear on the question: are you just asking how common this is, or do you have a specific question about implementing your plan?

I've found that making sure I'm hydrated throughout the day helps prevent cramps.

You're in luck! Your question seems to have been asked before: I am underweight. How do I gain weight and muscle? and there are answers there! :)

You're right, my comment was harsher than I intended, I apologize.

comment How to train general stamina (e.g. 12 minutes running)
How frequently do you do these 12-minute sets? But to start to answer one of your questions--you aren't putting in even a tenth of the amount of training necessary to start blaming genetics or other uncontrollable factors.

This article has, I think, an excellent overview on the topic of lifting and uterine prolapse.

comment Trying to gain weight in a healthy way, but getting a bigger or bloated belly as a result!
I think you need to add a lot of detail for this question to be helpful to you. Otherwise almost any answer is just a shot in the dark.
