comment What is a reasonable schedule for increasing flexibility?
@Paul - To some extent, yes. You may notice some initial quick gains, but it's just like working out. You don't go from benching 135 to 200 in 2-3 weeks either. Again, your mileage may vary, you may notice some significant gains earlier, it all depends on how your body responds. Just don't think that you can really jam it on the stretches and gain quicker, this really is something that you can do some serious damage if you overdo it.

comment Best timing and amount of protein intake for building mass
It's not irrelevant, although it may also be related to trained status: vuir.vu.edu.au/1436 ,ajpendo.physiology.org/content/281/2/E197?rss=1&ssourc , onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1469-7793.2001.00301.x/… , ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19478342 ,

comment Can the Vivosmart HR and a chest strap be used simultaneously with Garmin Connect software?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about pairing hardware.

comment How do I measure Vo2Max at home without specialized equipment?
@lecrank - I'm not suggesting that fitness increases (I state that in my last sentence). But, if you lose weight, your VO2Max will automatically increase, simply because it's a divisor in the equation. It's an indicator of potential, nothing more. If you want a better metric, vVO2Max (Velocity or speed at VO2 max) is much better.

comment What are some safe chest exercise for people with shoulder impingement?
Pushups to a wall is irrelevant to cable flies. Wall pushups are weaker because you aren't really fighting gravity at all. Cable flies would only be similar if you use very light weights.

comment Stretch marks from training
Stretch marks come from rapid growth to where the skin can not accommodate the growth (Skin is fairly elastic). You won't get stretch marks from "that one time you tried doing X". If you are getting lots of lines spreading rapidly, either you are growing very fast, or something else is going on.

comment What is the basic definition of cardiovascular exercise?
This is a good answer, but it's incomplete. The body also partially compensates by growing new blood vessels into working muscles (Neovascularization), as well as structural and physiological changes to be able to better utilize oxygen and fuel (such as mitochondrial increases) within muscle cells. If you could add something about those effects it would make this a stronger answer.

Gravity is weaker if you use cables? Interesting.
