comment Weight gained using GOMAD strategy
You could do a lot of things with it. For example, make it into whey protein powder! Or butter! Kefir still has sugar in it, just less than regular milk.

comment Right knee hurts on squat
I actually was against static stretching pre-workout before I started incorporating them back into my training programs. The issue isn't really about do or don't. It's a tool, when used properly yields great results.

Static stretching is essential to achieve the prerequisite flexibility for training. Going beyond that might increase injury due to decreased stability. Mike Boyle talks more about static stretching in this article. " Static stretching would be done to increase flexibility while the muscle is most prone to increase in length. Dynamic warm-up would follow to prepare the muscles for exercise. Coaches need to think about length changes for long-term injury prevention and dynamic warm-up for short term injury prevention. Both are critical."

comment Are there any harmful side effects to working out just your arms?
Is it reversed curvature of the C-spine? Sounds like you might have some kyphosis/forward head postural thing going on that's causing the issues.

comment Is a drastic calorie reduction harmful?
"They estimated that, for each 100 grams fried potatoes consumed, the TFA intake was less than 0.1 grams." So they fried potatoes 10 times and ended up with less than 0.1 gram per 100. So basically, you would need to eat 2000 grams of potatoes (Fried 10x each time) to get to the maximum recommended value. The other post you link is hyperbolic and isn't an objective source. Please provide actual evidence on how trans-fats block the absorption of calories - because sounds like TFA are great for dieting!

comment Difference between wide-grip lat pull-downs and wide-grip pull-ups
Then pull ups on the TRX are fine. In fact, they would be superior to the pull down machine.

Wait, people are gaining weight because of fried food poisoning? Do you know what the word poison actually means? I might alert you to a poison you've been drinking everyday called H2O. Please provide some sources on how fried foods poisons a person's metabolism.

Hehe thanks! I really got the basic idea from Human Anatomy (Book): i.imgur.com/kJrai.jpg -- should just edit this in my answer.
