revised Increasing explosive power in clap push-ups?
From my understanding, he had Strength and Power backwards. Strength is maximal strength IE weight shifted. Power is the weight and the force it's accellerated at, hence why in the chart Power has a speed of 90-100 (like you need for a clap pushup) while strength is 60-100

comment Wife has normal to above normal metabolism - still gaining weight
Also, as a side note hypothyroidism can take a while to resolve, or see benefits from supplementation. Stopping her supplementation (I assume it's T4) is probably not the best idea without the doc's ok.

comment Wife has normal to above normal metabolism - still gaining weight
Might be helpful to describe what she's eating (not just how many calories) and how you determined that her metabolism is "normal to slightly above normal".

comment Will eating only protein cause me to lose weight faster without muscle spoiling?
If you do this, don't do it for very long! Protein only = rabbit starvation. You really need dietary fat (for "health" not weight loss, per se)

comment What is a safe distance for a barefoot running on asphalt?
I'm not sure that there's any answer to be given; depends too much on specifics about you and your conditioning for this type of running. I think you should just listen to your body: if/when it hurts, stop.

comment Why am I falling back when I am squatting?
Don't get too caught up with the knees-behind-toes "rule". Google for images of heavy squats; you're just not going to find anyone lifting significant weight whose knees don't come at least a little forward. Body mechanics don't back that "rule" up.

Hey, how about adding a quick summary here of what Matt Furey's workout approach is? Protects from link breakage, and gives people a reason to click to learn more...
