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

comment Milk+honey helps gain weight?
+1 I'm interested by your mention of a 1.5 hour pre-workout carb timing window. I've seen several discussions about post-workout timing, but not pre-. Can you point me to any references? I'd love to do some reading.

comment Running out of energy before feeling muscle stress
@Pibara I don't entirely disagree with your recommendation. I particularly agree with your advice re: pre-workout fruit. (Though I rarely see those referred to as "bad" carbs, especially by people I trust.) However, I stand by the core claim of my answer: transitioning into and out of ketosis tends to make a lot of people bonk.

There are many, many, many approaches, of which the approaches he mentions are a couple of.

comment If I lift on the moon will I get stronger?
Requiring that someone understand the physics behind the question they're asking seems a bit backwards. It's not the most useful question but it's not an insane thing to ask. And it's certainly not "opinion-based", as one close vote argues.

It sounds like you're conflating time spent in the moon's gravity and time spent in zero gravity.

That's a lot of supplements. How much are you paying this guy to give you pills? Have you considered seeing how you do while just eating food?

comment Please recommend some exercise on legs
@JordanCarroll History on the demonization of squats: "The Knee Is Not For Bending", the science of which has been discredited as Schoenfeld and Beardsley discuss. On the positive side (that is, to specifically support my claim), squats strength the muscles that support the knee, and are a "use it or lose it" movement. If you don't squat, then soon your knees (and hips, and ankles) will not be able to support you squatting. And then it is bad for you, but not out of any inherent quality.

@JordanCarroll Schoenfeld (PDF) is a good start, but you've put me in a bit of a prove-a-negative situation. What do you think is dangerous about squats other than having a preexisting issue?

comment Please recommend some exercise on legs
Which isn't to say that I disagree with the formulation in your answer--after all, any movement can cause injury--but the idea that squats are dangerous is ill-grounded. Pathology is dangerous; if you can't squat you have a problem you need to fix.

@JordanCarroll Yes, but what exactly would lead you to think that moving a joint through its normal range of motion would be bad?

comment What are your views on weight training while injured?
Define "injured". A little elbow inflammation differs from a lot of inflammation, and a torn labrum is different than a broken arm.

@halvey Your approach seems to be giving you exactly the results you want, then. Glad to hear you've got it figured out!

comment How to build muscle strength without exercise?
@halvey So you want to get strong, but you don't want to change your body or buy quality food or follow a program or see a doctor or make any effort? Have you tried praying to any Norse gods? That might be your best bet. Or maybe a vision quest.

comment How to build muscle strength without exercise?
@halvey Respectfully, you don't know jack shit about what other people do to get strong. And frankly it doesn't matter. If you're interested in fixing this problem then do as people are telling you and describe what you've been doing, so we can try to help. If you're interested in your situation staying like it is then keep doing what you're doing. The fact that you say "I should be strong without putting much in" and "I really can't afford to eat such food" makes it sound like you're more excited to make excuses than to solve your problem.

comment Time window for fitness tracking - four weeks or longer?
@FredrikD The point of long-term tracking is in no way limited to supercompensation from individual workouts. There are plenty of scenarios in which one might need much more than 30 days to track the utility of a new training regimen.

comment Do handstand push ups and pike push ups work the posterior deltoid
@JohnP I don't dispute the fact of muscle imbalance, but I was trying to elicit whether this was a bodybuilding issue or an imbalance issue. The former requires exercises specific to that muscle, the latter can often be prevented by more general pulling exercises. I admit it was a bit of a knee-jerk attempt to move away from a muscle-specific frame for exercise.

Why are you concerned about your posterior deltoid?

comment Using knee braces during bootcamp
Is there a medical professional advising you to wear some sort of supportive device? The advice is not to go use a brace if you're healthy.
