comment How to find the right fitness class?
Not specific enough. It's like asking how to find the right job.

comment Why do compound exercises build more mass than isolation exercises?
Think about it like this: Entering the gym, you have a certain "growth budget" for your muscles, which is gone pretty fast, with just a few compound exercises. Anything you do after that simply distributes the total growth among other muscles, but there's nothing you can do to further increase it.

There's a limit to how much total mass your body can build per day, and that limit is easily reached with compound exercises. Hypertrophy does not require you to fully exhaust your muscles... a supporting role is often sufficient, the hypertrophy will just be smaller. This is a good thing, since you want to grow your muscles in the right proportions, not every muscle equally.

comment Is it preferrable to run on toes?
I understood "running on toes" to mean literally running ONLY on your toes, without letting the other part of the foot, even the front, touch the ground at all. Maybe I was mistaken, but I don't think the poster was clear on that. I agree that barefoot running is great.

comment Any fitness issues of child taking up jogging?
It's true that running is a poor kind of exercise. HIIT would be the way to go, I just didn't think it likely that the poster would consider that for his 6 yo...

comment Do fit or muscular people age better?
One comment about sacropenia: This is a bit misleading. Muscle mass can be increased substantially at any age with proper training. The observation that higher age is associated with lower muscle mass is merely statistical. It becomes harder to gain muscle as you age, but it's never impossible, and muscle loss is never inevitable.

Ok I see what you mean. I guess I was confused because I'd never consider there'd be anything harmful about it. Generally speaking, if she can do it, there's no harm to it.
