comment Calf pain / tightens
How frequently do you stretch (quads,calves,hams,etc)? Do you stretch and/or warmup before going on runs? Has this been a recurring thing or something that only recently started?

comment Barbell presses without a suitable power/squat rack?
@DaveLiepmann Yes, your mileage may vary and some of these will be more awkward than others. I found it to be more comfortable by adding a dip for more momentum right before I clean from the waist.

comment Is there a web site for planning your own workouts and following up on them?
If you're of the technically inclined DIY mindset, you could always create a LAMP stack on your home computer and write your own php script for this. Heck, you could even skip LAMP and just setup a shell script cron job!

Chess, while a great workout for your mind, does little to improve your physical fitness. If you want to improve physical fitness, try working out your chest.

comment Exercise for Upper chest
While this may sound obvious: ensure that you are eating enough to promote muscle growth. Even with proper exercise, if you don't fuel your body it won't grow.

comment Am I eating right? or way too much?
@MikeS The diet has a ton of carbs, zero fruit, and very little fats or vegetables. Regardless, my point was your advice was poor since it essentially boiled down to "if you are losing body fat then your diet is good" and that kind of black and white statement can be dangerous to those who take it to heart.

The answer is NOT that simple. Even an atrociously poor diet can result in short term fat loss. You want a balanced and healthy diet first, THEN focus on fat loss.

Why was this question downvoted? His comment about the shakes is accurate, as they are more for post-workout supplements than meal replacements. And the following statements were equally true as well.

comment It's really difficult to exercise my triceps, could use some suggestions!
I second JohnP recommendation to see a doctor. Also, I would suggest finding alternate ways to workout the triceps. There are tons of amazing exercises, not the least of which include pulls ups, push ups, chair dips, bench press, and over head barbell press. You may find that the pain is relegated only to that specific workout, and these other exercises may then prove safe to use.
