Accidentally thought the question was about wrist straps, made necessary adjustments.

comment Eating pasta and developing a sixpack
Anecdotally, the five people I know who have six packs all eat pasta and carbs in general. Essentially, they live by the "if it fits your macros" mantra, where as long as they keep their calories in check and meet their macros, the diet is okay (in other words, the source doesn't matter, only the end macro split). This has worked well for me as well.

comment Is it necessary to do flat, incline and decline flys?
Also, just from experience I would say Marty's program wouldn't be much longer than 1 hour in duration if done solo, and it is only because of the added time from having a partner that it is encroaching on the 2 hour mark.

comment Building a first-time workout based on my lifestyle
There have been 3 downvotes on this question, but not one comment explaining why it is a bad question or how to improve it. Could someone elaborate on this? As for @informaficker's notes, the answers all appear to be in the question: he has never worked out before and has no plan, tried the gold gyms program generator but their efficacy was rightly called into question based off the output.

comment Is it a good idea to do really a lot of push-ups?
I wouldn't say no danger... push ups are a common source for wrist pain, so doing an excessive amount of push ups can increase the likely-hood or speed up the process of getting wrist pain. To that end, doing knuckle push ups on a heavily padded surface would be far better for decreasing chance of injury.

comment Why might assisted chin-ups not be recommended to build up to unassisted ones?
If the resistance band actually increases your strength, then it will transfer towards pull ups. If you aren't gaining strength from it, then no it won't.
