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

comment Why doesn't my stamina seem to improve?
@RyanMiller BMI is an actively dangerous metric, particularly (as michael notes) for athletes.

comment Is increasing lung capacity a misnomer?
If you go to skeptics, be sure to cite a notable instance of the claim you'd like investigated. I'm not sure on which site it's a better fit, but it's an interesting question.

comment What changes between the 5 rep range and the 10 rep range?
I don't actually know anything on this topic, but I've seen a test: "take 80% of your one-rep max and do as many repetitions as you can. If you only get five reps or less then you fall into the fast twitch world. If you get ten reps or more, than you are a slow twitch rider." (I can't vouch for its validity.) Maybe you're just a slow-twitch guy? (Also, I've heard 1-3 reps for strength; 5-6 is a nice Goldilocks zone between strength and hypertrophy, as I understand it.)

comment How to take advantage of a cable machine when you've maxed it out?
@Salsero69 I guess I misunderstood--I thought you meant that you did all that shoulder work concurrently.

@Salsero69 I've done that too. But why put aside squats when you're doing half a dozen different shoulder exercises?

comment Best warm up for running
The first study speaks only of static stretching, which is not the same at all as dynamic stretching. We know static stretching reduces sensation and peak output, but that dynamic stretching does not. (I have not, to my recollection, seen injury numbers for dynamic stretching--perhaps my go-to source, Tom Kurz has some, but I don't have his book in front of me.)

@Aaron Adding your own answer about the lack of need for stretching would be super. Like JohnP, I'd be interested in any evidence that shows dynamic stretching to be superfluous.

What "weight" are you maxed out at?

comment Should I focus on gaining strength or weight?
More detail on your height, weight, and goals would help.
