comment How to create a good personalized bodyweight workout plan
@Orism Doing the evaluative diagnostics is hard. Knowing how to interpret the results is hard. Most people, myself included, and even smart people, do better with outside expert guidance compared to trying to 1) figure out what they don't know and then 2) teach that to themselves

comment Is there any benefit to being more flexible than is necessary to reach position?
@Daniel There's also the countering fact that while one's ability to exert force is limited at the end ranges of motion; one is able to bounce off of the end of some ranges of motion due to elastic effects on a variety of soft tissue. So being barely flexible enough to squat below parallel is advantageous for powerlifting, for example.

@Alec "Parkour was developed in France, primarily by Raymond Belle, and further by his son David Belle and his group of friends, the self-styled Yamakasi, during the late 1980s" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkour

comment Is warmup before lifting really necessary in real world outside the gym?
@claws That's not what I said. A morning mobilization keeps you prepared for a larger variety of submaximal efforts. Getting stronger makes your submaximal efforts closer to what are now your maximal efforts. The only safe preparation for a maximal effort is proper warm-up funneling to that effort.

What was the injury? And it's unrelated to your direct question, but doing StrongLifts plus a pull-up program is a major sign of fuckarounditis. Better to pick a program and focus on it.

comment Is this diet right for bulking up?
I voted to close as a duplicate but the votes to close based on it being off-topic due to being a nutrition question are misguided.

You don't lift things overhead in everyday life? You don't want your body to have that functionality? This is a weird application of the principle of functional training.
