comment Why might assisted chin-ups not be recommended to build up to unassisted ones?
He mentions it every now and again in his forum. I won't link as I'm pretty sure it requires login, but "Yes, ditch the band assisted chins lest you become extremely good at doing band assisted chins and little else.", "Band assisted chins are good for one thing, making you real good at doing band assisted chins.", and "If you're in a gym that has an assisted pullup machine, they probably have a pulldown setup. I like V handle pulldowns heavy and with good technique". I've never seen any reasoning beyond this. Of course I respect his experience, just interested in why it might be the case.

comment best way to build cardio endurance?
The treadmill is fine for improving your cardio, but don't rely on its measurements. Some cheaper treadmills are notoriously out. The powered belt is assisting your stride and thus different muscle action is involved. You have to get out on to the road and time yourself, where you'll be subjected to wind, temperature, unevenness of surface and possibly slight inclines and declines.

I can read hundreds of reviews of such books to ascertain their quality, yet a medical professional I have 'hope' they know their stuff. Locally, the strongest indicator of a professional who gets results is the impossibility to get an appointment.

Everyone knows about medical professionals, we get told constantly to see them for everything, but people choose to ask online because that's not what they want. Every question on this board could be answered with 'see a professional'.
