comment Troubleshooting “Body By Science” workout
Yes, it does feel like a long rest, but it's claimed that having that much rest is a critical part of the strategy. He quotes a study in which 2 workouts per week were shown to be no more effective and less effective in some cases.

comment Troubleshooting “Body By Science” workout
I am impressed that there is a 15-minutes-per-week exercise plan that can help me maintain. Even if the workout is flawed from the standpoint of improving strength or composition, being able to maintain with such a small time investment is still a major win!

comment Impact of Marijuana on training
I think this is a fair question; it's useful to examine our assumptions about what is and isn't healthy. Red wine, for example, has only recently moved into the healthy category...

comment 800-Calorie Diet
Nice answer. The biggest concern with low-calorie diets like this is that it might "slow" the metabolism so that its difficult to reintroduce carbs or more calories in general. I'd be interested in hearing how phase 3 and 4 have gone for you and what phase 4 looks like in terms of calories, carbs, etc.

comment 800-Calorie Diet
Agree with @Ivo - I'm not sure that a starvation diet like this can be beneficial for any purpose. It's not going to help you lose/keep off weight - your body is going to fight that deficit with vigor and rob muscle, organ, and bone tissues to try to make up for the deficit, while hoarding fat.

comment Developing slow transition in muscle-up
I think proper technique is usually critical for the long run. I would focus on an even "pop", even if it means you can do fewer of them for now. Once you have the technique down, strength will come through repetition.

comment How often can a person work on their Abs?
Excellent viewpoint, and what I actually do myself. However, if squats are the daddy of all exercises, then deadlifts are the grand-daddy. :-)

I assume you meant complex carbs instead of simple... rollback if I erred.
