comment Is it okay to skip arm specific exercises?
@Salsero Working out with high intensity, compound movements will increase growth hormone levels. Also the more muscle you have (anywhere), the more testosterone you will have - leading to more growth overall.

comment What can I do to start gaining weight?
Simple, eat more. If you think you already do eat enough to gain weight, you're just wrong.

comment How to overcome lack of willpower when not having access to a personal trainer or training buddy?
I never had a problem working out on my own but I just accept that some days, it's OK to quit early if you don't feel up to it. Also, make friends with people in your gym and talk to them.

@Joe you'd be surprised how well a blob of vaseline works. I only need a tiny amount to last a whole marathon

comment Egg whites and yolks
I agree - eat the whole thing. The yolk also contains choline which is important for brain development. I think if youre needing to separate the yolk, you should try getting more protein from other sources instead.

@James Bond a low heart-rate on its own is nothing to worry about as long as you have no other reasons to think otherwise. Mine can be around 35-40 when i wake up in the morning. Its quite normal

Also looking at the number of calories you are eating per day, your trainer is right and you need to eat a lot more.

comment Buying barbell / rack
All good advice, thank you! Especially about only buying padded plates for the largest diameter. @Meade I have been a gym regular for years, just never bought my own stuff.

comment How to prepare for a race?
Thanks Chris. I had tapered for the week before so I did as you said and ran a short time at race pace. I skipped breakfast but had a big dinner the night before. Broke my PB and achieved my target!

It very much depends on your gait. That's why there's different types of running shoes. You should go to a running shop
