comment what exercises are good (and bad) for striking speed in martial arts?
I studied Wing Tsun Kung Fu for a while, and there was an emphasis on strengthening the lats and using them to generate force.

comment Should I drink water before, during or after eating?
@wdypdx22 Difficult to compare a lifetime of dining experiences here... tea is served, but sipped sparingly from small cups (you can't gulp down a 16oz glass of hot tea) and often not really touched during the meal.

comment Practical and Tasty choices for a high protein diet
Agree 1400 calories is probably too low. Good amount of protein for that calorie level, but you gotta get some fat in there! I don't see enough for this to be sustainable...

comment When taking vitamins and supplements, does it matter if I take them all at once or should I spread it out throughout the day?
Also, one of the big functions of vitamin D is to help you absorb calcium, so you want to try to to couple D with calcium intake (through food, multivitamin or whatever).

Does this differ with the type of workout? e.g. weightlifting vs. running?
