comment What is the simplest way to measure strength?
@Informaficker Not sure why you ask, but yes, 20 push-ups requires a minor amount more strength and a significant amount more strength-endurance. As I understand it, maximum-repetitions tests evaluate muscle-endurance more than strength.

comment What is the simplest way to measure strength?
@Informaficker Strength is well-defined; the question is asking for the ideal measurement of it, which is not problematically subjective.

You could focus on the lower body--squats, lunges, sprints, jumps...

comment Do I need to lose more weight ? My BMI is 21.5
Please keep in mind that BMI is not intended to be used as a metric for individual health. Checking a height/weight chart to determine if Yousuf should lose more weight is simply not good. You qualify your response, but that's the core of what you're doing.

comment What is the optimal time to train in order to see gains in size and strength?
@Informaficker Don't hound the new guy; not every answer needs references.

comment I am underweight. How do I gain weight and muscle?
I want to +1 this for the first half, but I simply can't get behind most people lifting one and a half times a week and not examining their diet. I believe it works for you; I'm not sure it's a good idea for most.

comment Cutting phase: indicators for muscle loss
Could you narrow this question down to something more specific than "how do I cut?"

comment How do I squat if I can't keep my heels on the floor?
@Adrian Glad to hear it helped. The cue is "push the knees out". Keep working on a straight back, though. Air squats round the back more than barbell squats in my experience, but working towards a straight back even with air squats helps barbell-squat posture.

For some background on why I don't trust walking as sufficient exercise except for the quite feeble, see this answer.

Do you have some resources or references for the "Most Effective When Already Lean" section? I myself don't feel able to bridge from PP to the specific idea that walking + lifting will lean someone out, but I'm pretty sure it's correct.
