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

comment What additional exercises do I add to the Madcow 5x5 program?
Were you doing a linear progression? What made you choose Madcow? How much rest do you take between sets or exercises? What were the 15-18 exercises you did previously?

Were you doing a linear progression (SS/SL) before starting Madcow? How heavy do your work sets feel?

@oshirowanen The line in the FAQ is trying to make the point that nutrition-only questions are off-topic. At the moment, that includes this question. If the question were edited to relate to exercise (which seems difficult), it would be fine. How would you change the FAQ to be more specific?

comment In bodybuilding, how do I train my traps and lats without involving my biceps?
-1 The title (used to) say "back" but the question is asking about traps and lats, i.e. not the lower back.

I think answers to existing questions cover this fairly well: fitness.stackexchange.com/a/7129/1771 fitness.stackexchange.com/q/1711/1771 fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/5654/… It's important to distinguish critiques of isolation exercises for athletic performance from critiques of machines, or critiques of isolation exercises for mass (which your question addresses). The most convincing argument the latter is that beginners get bigger faster with compound exercises, since they elicit growth responses over the whole body.

comment Does daily crossfit excercise and a paleo diet reduce heart disease?
I think this is too broad. It's not nutrition that makes me think this should be closed--it's the fact that it requires lengthy advanced chemistry.
