comment How do different modes of transportation compare from a caloric burn perspective?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I imagine that the gear of the bike would be as big, if not bigger, of a factor than the miles per hour.

comment How much should I exercise given my calorie intake?
The goal is to lose weight, so his actual target caloric range (based off the very source you linked) should be 2000-2500. With a 3000 calorie diet and 500 calorie exercise it is unlikely to promote any fat loss.

comment pistol squats: which kind of barbell squat helps the most
I was able to do pistol squats after following the advice on this video youtu.be/OLEds-vDd5g. The hardest part of this for me was balance and flexibility, not strength, so this may not help you as it did for me.

comment What is the advantage of using Olympic plates over standard ones?
Another thing to consider is the curvature of the plates, as many will be octagonal whereas others are perfectly circular. Circular is much better as it makes it much easier to position the weighted bar on the ground. It's not much, but a super pet peeve of mine when doing deadlifts with octagonal plates.

@DaveLiepmann I agree with that addendum 100%, as I've seen the exact same results.

comment Dealing with muscle imbalances
Doing isolation work on a single side, even if it is slightly weaker, seems like a bad idea to me. Would that really address the imbalance, or just shift it from one side to another?

comment I am on 8% body fat but still look fat?
As I suggest in my answer below, take multiple tests to ensure you are actually at or near 8%. If you are, and this isn't some calculation error, then our answers will have to change.
