comment Weaning myself off unhealthy cereal
I'm not a fan of plain eggs. So if I have eggs I want them in a way that I can add some flavor in the form of meat and cheese. Health-wise I honestly don't know if there are differences.

comment Is it possible to do 1 leg squat with a torn acl?
You should really be asking a doctor, and if you suspect you've damaged yourself you should probably play it safe until then. Common sense.

comment Development of stamina for long distance
Training stress is also cumulative, and overtraining can also contribute to the same kind of symptoms. Before trying intervals, etc. take a week off and relax. Make sure you are completely rested/recovered. Then mix up your training.

comment Hourly 30 second workouts for the workday?
I still think that 60 or 90 seconds would be a better idea without ending up pouring sweat for the rest of your workday, but on the whole I think this is an absolutely brilliant idea.

30 seconds may not do it, but 90-120 would probably be a bit more realistic, while still not making you all sweaty.

But +1 for a crazily ballsy question. :p

comment Can I beat Arnold in arm wrestling?
You can curl 40 lbs per arm 3-5 reps? You weight 195? Arnold now would probably wipe the floor with you. He's significantly heavier than you, significantly stronger than you, and has been around the block a few times. Don't underestimate Old Man Strengthâ„¢. Especially from someone his size and former peak strength.

comment What is a suitable post-marathon training plan?
Or just run if you feel like it, just for fun. No schedules, no HRM or other training aids. Just take an easy run because running is fun.

comment Barefoot Running: What is the right form?
That article pretty much summarizes what I've been saying. If done carefully, slowly, and methodically, the transition to barefoot running can be done without injury. But it has to be done slowly, carefully, and methodically.

comment What is wrong with CrossFit?
This is a really good question, and has attracted some really good answers that have called out some issues that I've suspected but not been able to put a finger on as I investigate CrossFit.

comment Barefoot Running: What is the right form?
Clearly we disagree here, and that's fine. Research hasn't conclusively proven either side of the barefoot argument. But as such, I take issue with the language of your answer. Shoes have not been definitively shown to reduce injury. So telling someone "please wear shoes" and saying their body will thank them for it is a bit sketchy.

comment Barefoot Running: What is the right form?
I run on sidewalks, roads, and trails. I don't worry that much about stepping on dangerous stuff because I have eyeballs that help me avoid it. I also don't worry about "bracing myself" on the hard surfaces. I have built-in, amazing shock absorbers called muscles and tendons that do the job admirably. I don't need or want "cushion" on my feet in the form of shoes. The shoes I do wear to run have no cushion. Just a thin insole and a rubber outsole.
