Stretch, every day. It doesn't take long. I tend to do it after working out and on non-workout days in the evening

comment Why is body mass index so widely used to determine ideal body weight?
Because it is simple and people like simple things. Too bad it sucks. npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106268439

comment What should I do if I can't complete my program's prescribed workout?
"I hadn't slept and probably hadn't eaten correctly either". Need to address that first, then re-read the information on the Texas Method, couple of good books out there, I suggest Rip's Practical Programming

You sweat more to cool the body, you'll drink water to replace that lost while sweating.

comment Is it a good idea to only do cardio?
Has anyone coached you on proper weight lifting techniques and started you on a general lifting program? Numb and sore is not unusual for a new lifter. The key is proper recovery, which includes rest and good nutrition.

comment Is it good to box 6 rounds before heavy squats?
I could see one 3 minute round for a warmup, but six? That is going to have an adverse effect on your strength training IMO.

comment What is the best way to get rid of love handles and lower belly fat?
They can be an issue, especially with fat around the midsection. People have really good luck with a paleo diet. Pretty muc it is eats a wide variety of vegetables (especially leafy green ones), meat, and some fruit with dark berries being the best. Veggies and meat should be the main part of your diet.

What is eating "pretty healthy"? Issues like this tend to be diet related. Cut out the grains and dairy for 30 days and see how things go would be my suggestion.

comment Presses or squats first?
I always do squats first, for the reason you stated. But I do deadlifts last as they usually leave me so exhausted that my other lifts suck. I believe this is the sequence Rippetoe suggests in SS. In the end, find what works for you.

comment Exercises that can replace squats?
Doing squats wrong messes up your knees, doing them right doesn't mess them up.

comment Why can extreme athletes eat so many calories without health risk?
I wouldn't worry too much about the cholesterol or fat intake. But to answer your question anyone that performs and practices at a high level will cause some type of damage to their body overtime, the nature of the beats. Push your body to extremes and it will push back.

comment What can cause severe muscle fatigue and even pain at wake-up?
Since it varies I would look for common factors for when you do have issues. Cold be types of exercise or food you are eating.
