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

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.

comment What muscles are targeted by these different variations of pull-ups: standard, chin-ups, and the neutral or parallel close grip pull-up?
This is a duplicate question, but I think the older one should be merged with this one, because both question and answers are better stated here.

A quote from Rip's thread would get my upvote. :)

comment Seeking a barbell/dumbbell workout for a very small room
I'd write off the bench and barbell as useless, haul the heaviest dumbbells outside (giving you a farmer's walk! Yay!), and do something like what I describe in this answer. Outdoor heavy dumbbell work with the basics.

comment How many calories would a programmer (or somebody who is mostly at a desk) burn on a daily basis?
@Moses I think you're right, and therefore my response is no longer entirely accurate. I still think that such an approach is reductionist and to be avoided.

comment How many calories would a programmer (or somebody who is mostly at a desk) burn on a daily basis?
I think it's important to keep in mind the fact that calories are not the only important aspect of a diet, and that sitting at a desk all day has negative effects beyond the caloric.
