comment Best practice for beginners to gain weight
@Informaficker Your comment about somatotypes being outdated would make an excellent answer. MrBretten's answer is good as well, though I substitute "person who has always or generally been skinny" when I read "ectomorph".

This answer addresses some of the non-diet issues involved with gaining weight. Essentially: eat real food--a lot of it--and squat, deadlift, press, and chin three times a week as heavy as possible for sets of 5.

comment Abs are built in the kitchen, but what about obliques and lower abs?
The idea that eating fat makes you fat is a myth. Dietary fat is not the same as body fat.

comment Are sit-ups harmful to female anatomy?
Point #4 in this article reminded me of your proselytizing for pelvic floor strengthening: catalystathletics.com/blog/blog.php?blogID=1748 You have a solid point.

Sustainable for how long? And who are we talking about here--a 5'2'' 25-year old hiking woman, or a 60-year old 6' 200'' sedentary man, or a sumo wrestler who just quit the sport?
