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

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.

comment Losing weight without losing muscle
I'm not knowledgeable enough to do more than point you to Martin Berkhan's intermittent fasting, and to low-rep, high-weight strength exercises. Could you detail your current diet and strength program?

Are you competing for 4 hours, or practicing for 4 hours?

Do you want to improve your stamina for tennis or for running?

comment Recommendations for a weight program to support martial arts competition
This is a great question, but unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the strength/mobility needs of a TKD competitor to speak knowledgably about programming. Any answer of mine would veer towards' VPeric's good point about general and basic strength training (perhaps with an upper-body emphasis?).

comment Dead lift, best way to gain strength and power
Are you power cleaning, or relying on the deadlift to train speed-strength/power/explosiveness?

comment Dead lift, best way to gain strength and power
What are your goals? You mention burning calories, strength, size, and power, all of which require fairly different approaches.

I think this question belongs here instead of MA.SE; that SE has a strong anti-modern-training bias.
