comment cycling 10km everyday for fitness and weightloss
OP is asking if their selected activities are OK, not that it's the only activities they'd consider. Cycling for fitness on a fixie is questionable to begin with; seems like they'd be much better off going a different route altogether. All that said, advocating long bouts of steady-state cardio still seems questionable.

In general maximum efficiency and results are achieved through HIIT/etc rather than longer workouts. Read up on much of the research over the last few years.

comment How can I do a recomp?
Without knowing body composition etc. it's difficult to provide safe, effective, meaningful advice. Aim to lose a ~0.2-.5 kg/wk at the most, keep your nutrient intake at safe levels, and don't stress about it. You're too young to stress about this, and rushing it while still developing isn't good.

comment Are protein powders unhealthy for a teen athlete?
Too much protein can cause problems. Without any information regarding your dietary habits it's impossible to provide meaningful advice. Chances are you're getting enough protein without supplementation, but judicious use of protein powders can be beneficial (e.g., as part of a recovery drink taken < 2h after your workout, but it should also include 2-3x grams of carbs). Unhealthy? Almost certainly not.

comment Gym has max 30 kgs dumbbells; how to progress?
Buy them some dumbbells. Join a different gym. Bring your own collars (I've done that at some ill-equipped gyms). Hang weights on their flye machine (I've done that too, but stopped after I broke one).

comment Should I include lightweight in my workout if I have an endurance based goal?
OP is starting a progression to do 100 pushups. I doubt I could now, but yes, I did, and several of my past clients could as well. Not really relevant, though; my point was that I don't see how pushups are going to have a significant impact on curls. Lifters regularly train different bodyparts on different days and not once have I heard anyone say "I can't curl today, I did chest yesterday." YMMV.

Hrm. Never noticed any major issues with that, with myself or with clients, but maybe we were all just lucky.

comment Are protein supplements used outside of bodybuilding?
@cheaterpushups It depends on your caloric requirements, what your body can tolerate, what you choose to eat, etc. I'd think it'd be pretty rare for non-athletes to have this issue. Anecdotally I can tell you that when I was vegan, I supplemented because little I ate was calorically dense enough to provide what I needed in a reasonable volume. When I was doing endurance athletics and needed anywhere between 5-10000 cals a day, same thing, plus that much solid food was uncomfortable.

I'm curious how it would affect bicep curls.

comment In which case I would feel better?
It's impossible to say what would make you "feel better". It depends on many factors, more than just your intake and exercise. Eat well, eat actual food, exercise reasonably.
