comment How many times a week should I deadlift and squat as a beginner?
Maybe you could edit your answer to take that into account?

That's not correct. SS squats 3x/week and many versions deadlift once or twice a week.

That's only one example of 5x5 training; many other schedules exist.

Are you looking at a particular program?

comment How to further my training without going to a gym?
I would call repeating the entire sequence "3 sets of the above", rather than "3 reps of the above". That might help with communicating your workout.

comment Combining home exercise with limited equipment with gym
@titus.andronicus Sorry, I'm not that familiar with yoga vids. What I did was go to classes for a few months then make up a routine based on my experience. Best of luck!

What are you doing at the gym? Or is that part of the question?

comment Should I wait until my muscles are 100% free of any signal of soreness before training for strength again?
@Mephisto Remember that your recovery ability is not a static target. You should try working out more frequently and see how you feel. The key is to notice and keep track of the signs of overtraining.

comment Why does my RHR rise every day after a strength workout?
I'd do some reading on sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, but I bet that the short version is that you introduced a stress and your body is recovering from that stress.

comment Should one generally avoid machines in favor of free weights?
@JoJo I see two possibilities. One, there's carryover and you're just not feeling it. This often happens to me when I don't take a break from squats: stairs are still hard! Then I take a week off from lifting, my body recovers, and BOOM stairs are like escalators. Two, maybe you're not doing cardio or something, and that's what's making real life hard? Except I bet you do cardio.
