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

comment Dumbbell weight training for distance running
I disagree strongly. If someone is doing a 5 or 10k, they are getting their cardio from running. They need strength training, particularly for the lower body. Light-weight upper-body dumbbell work as described in the article is barely useful at all for improving running times.

comment Nutrition while dancing Salsa
@Salsero69 If you ate more than the calories you burned, it's likely you'd just poop it out. Our bodies are not simple calorie furnaces, turning excess into fat. I'm with John on skepticism of the HR monitor being terribly specific about calories.

comment Best practice for beginners to gain weight
@Informaficker Good point. Pawan, could you be more specific about what you need? General advice on how to gain size and strength is in this answer, which I linked to above. Unless you are more specific than "how do I gain size and strength, this question is a duplicate of that one.

You say you had been working in the 8-12 rep range previously, but was that with compound barbell exercises, or isolation exercises on machines?

comment How much protein and how often should I consume if my LBM is very low?
That's why I personally trust the bodyweight-dependent "rules" more than the ones that are bodyweight-agnostic. It's true that it may not be a linear relationship, but there are so many confounding factors that I think it's a fair rule of thumb. I'm fairly confident that gaining muscle mass benefits from a high protein/high % protein diet; the specific numbers...meh.

I think we should be examining these rules or sources individually, instead of as one conglomerate question. I think the "total protein" rule has contradictory assumptions from the others, for instance. Everything about this question boils down to that, no?

Where did these recommended rules come from?

@Informaficker I would be okay with merging this question with this user's other identical question, but this question is not the same as the one I linked to IMO.

You'll need to make it more substantial than that. :)
