comment Exercising at higher temperatures
I've worked out in the summer in a Middle Eastern country and only trained at night. But even then, temperatures and humidity was still high and the only problems I had were elevated heart rates. Other than that I did not have any serious problems health wise.

No need for passive aggression. OP's question is a valid concern and he just wanted to know the effects of hotter (or colder) temperatures during training.

comment BCAA together with whey protein
Both mix pretty well which is an important factor for me because I hate clumpy shakes. :)

My girlfriend for example is about 4'9-ish and I don't think she can carry the weights or the barbell on its own.

Your body will not process anything above it's current needs and may just end up in your urine. Expensive urine.

I just started the program last monday. Squatted 50 lb and deadlifted 90 lb. I weigh about 175 lb and I'm 5'6.

By the way, how much do you think this cuts in terms of bench press efficiency? Do I have to compensate in any way?

comment What would I need to track fitness effort?
If you don't mind me asking, why do need to track so much data?

comment What is good workout attire for weight lifting?
Yes it would temporarily engorge the muscles, but not enough to tighten up your shirt to make it uncomfortable. I'm not a bodybuilder expert, but if I remember right, they try to lose their body fat % prior to their competitions while minimizing muscle loss. Usually to about 5% or less.

Your muscles don't get "pumped up" after your workout. They get bigger during recovery.

comment Swimming for Fat burn
@friz, exactly. I said "leisurely" to illustrate that you can still enjoy swimming while burning almost the same amount of Calories while running.

comment Which sport is much better as in burning fat faster without making muscles?
This is a common misconception among women... They don't want to workout because they think they'll look like Venus William after they hit the gym.

comment Stretches that are good for stiff neck and shoulders?
They're a bit lengthy and I feel a summary won't give them justice. I'll see what I can do.
