comment “Tricep Dumbbell Kickback” causing fatigue pain in back side of shoulder
@dsolimano is correct. Pain is usually used to denote something that is bad, and needs to be stopped and like right now. Fatigue just means that you are tired.

comment Actual amount of calories, I'm burning when riding bike
This is why you should follow up on things. The CPA that you reference gives 4 METS (METabolic EquivalentS) for cycling at less than 10 mph. If you plug your values into a METS to calories converter (Such as this one: ergo.human.cornell.edu/MetsCaloriesCalculator/… ), it gives a value of 270 calories for your weight/time/pace.

comment Recovering from Sport-trauma (shoulder/neck injury with stiffness/pain) with Multivitamins, Salts and Omega3?
Aside from being off topic, you could write a book answering those questions, and almost all of it would be unproven guesses.

comment Actual amount of calories, I'm burning when riding bike
at ~ 15k (9 miles) per hour, I'd be more inclined to believe runastic's figures.

comment Do you lose stamina when you workout?
It would help if you could outline your current workouts, what you plan to do and what your goals are. If you want to do endurance/cross country, the last thing you want to do is start putting on unnecessary mass.

comment Running, how many times a week? With what average speed? For how long?
Kind of a mishmash of accurate and conjecture. The born to run is talking about easy runs versus hard runs in a full training regimen, not for the casual/recreational runner. Casual runners really have no reason to run fast at all. The Forbes link is to a study where the mortality and other factors drop markedly in limited (< 51 min) run program, but some of the higher time categories had lower risk than that. The "working yourself into an injury" is also pure guess, as there are many quite healthy people that exercise every day, some of whom have been doing it for many years.

comment Do you lose stamina when you workout?
Way too broad. How much stamina? What type of exercise for both mass and stamina maintenance? Personal history? What kind of stamina do you want? Endurance running stamina is much different than lifting stamina.

I flagged your question for migration to martialarts beta site. Much better fit there.

comment calcium and Iron
Just a note - The only real way for the body to get rid of excess iron is through blood loss, so make sure that you need iron supplementation before taking it.

comment Magnesium intake after training in the evening?
kidney stones are really only a concern if you have kidney problems to begin with, or are taking massive doses (More than 400mg). As far as timing, there's no real difference in efficacy (as far as I am aware) related to different intake times.

comment Roughly how many calories does one pull-up burn?
It depends on the exercise and the person. For example, cycling (as measured through expirometry) is about 25% efficient. And, a well trained person that can go up and down without jerking around will be more efficient than someone who has to wriggle and buck to do a pullup.

Measuring your own fat accurately with calipers is not possible.

comment Measuring body fat with uneven upper/lower body proportions
All tests depend on the skill of the practitioner and the testee. If a person does not completely exhale on the dunk test it can skew the results. Dunk tanks and DXA can be the best methods, although the dunk tank needs proper administration, and the DXA calculations may not work for all cohorts.

One can only hope that the person in that video never decided to breed. Those genes do not deserve to be perpetuated.
