comment Would short Achilles tendons keep you from touching your toes?
A short Achilles won't impede anything. It remains in a static position. The rest of it is absolutely spot on, though.

comment Significant difference in cognitive ability for sleep during night and during day
Your question is off topic, but yes, many people have certain circadian sleep patterns that they very much prefer.

comment How to determine stomach is just filled with fat or it is just bloating
You will never be able to see nerves through your skin. Go to a general doctor, and if a specialist is needed they will send you there.

comment Depleting Muscle Glycogen and Fat Burning
Not only broad, but it is a speculative "What if" question which is off topic on every SE site.

comment Getting back into aerobic shape
The general rule of thumb I've found is that to get back to point A, after a layoff of B, is A = Bx2. Took you probably 2-3 weeks to lose your training, so probably 10ish weeks to get back to where you were.

comment Muscular tiredness from biking — is it endurance related?
Then I reiterate - If you get pain pedaling over 5 mph, then either your position is atrocious, or you have something physically wrong that we can't diagnose.

comment Muscular tiredness from biking — is it endurance related?
Lactic acid, or to give it the proper name, lactate, doesn't really get produced at submaximal levels. It's a bridge between the anaerobic and aerobic energy systems. IF he is truly doing 5 mph and still producing lactate, then there is something physically or genetically askew.

comment Muscular tiredness from biking — is it endurance related?
There is either something wrong with your body (Which we can't tell/diagnose), or there is something that you aren't telling us. A 5 year old on a BMX can do 5 mph. Your question doesn't add up.

Care to expand, rather than a terse, cryptic statement with a generic wiki link?

comment Seeking suggestions for lifestyle changes beneficial for upper body strength
@brainbolt - I would suggest that you read the FAQ and the tour, it will explain what kinds of questions can and can't be asked. Seeing as how you have a few different SE sites listed in your profile, I'm surprised that you don't know that open ended, chatty opinion type questions are off topic on pretty much every SE site there is.

comment Im trying to loose weight in my thighs but im gaining alot of muscle in them and its making them bigger
How tall are you for 130? Why do you think you need to lose weight? Oh, and spot reduction is a myth. You can't control where your body stores/uses fat. If your legs were the first place to accumulate fat, they will be the last places to slim down.

comment Would a female champion wrestler overpower an average couch potato man?
How many questions are you trying to squeeze into this? And your basic question would be off topic on every SE site I can think of.

No, it actually doesn't. Stop believing in so much bro-science.

comment losing side and back fat
Actually, endurance exercise is very good for fat burning. While there is some debate about HIIT burning a higher percentage of fat for a shorter period, or burning at a lower rate for a longer period, exercise will burn fat, and the lower the intensity, the more you will utilize a fat substrate instead of a carbohydrate substrate. Here's one study for you (Obese women at a 55% intensity level) - ajpendo.physiology.org/content/261/2/E159 If you care to research it, I have other studies I can give you.

comment Tingling sensation in shoulder
@BenLim - That's more common than you might think. I know a lot of people that have injured their shoulders lifting backpacks, suitcases, etc.

We can't diagnose your pain, unfortunately. Your best bet is to go see a medical professional.

comment losing side and back fat
The study you cite mentions nothing about sugars, and all types of abdominal fat were affected, not just one type.

Even with the edit, it is still off topic, IMO.

Bad answer. Your answers should be backed up with sources and science, not "as far as I know" and supposition.

comment How to dismantle pull-up (chin-up) bar without destroying it?
Of course you don't think it's off topic, you posted the question. :) But, it's not about how to use the equipment in an exercise routine.
