comment cycle or swim without injury while training hard for a race
@gideon - That's one of the reasons I recommended beginner triathlete and the mentor groups. It's really not that hard. There are also training groups, triathlon clubs, many group ways to approach it. I know people that do two or three workouts daily for weeks in a row and do just fine.

No, I mean that if you are going to do an easy run day, do an easy run day! Don't daydream and suddenly find yourself doing 1 minute faster pace than your target. Especially on multiple workout days, follow what the program says. Resist the urge to put in extra effort because "you feel good". And if you can run, you are already miles ahead (pun intended) over most triathletes.

comment Is stretching more difficult once the muscle mass is bigger?
Additionally, the quote is taken out of context and is somewhat unrelated to the actual content of the review.

comment Calories per hour, lifting weights
It also demonstrates a lack of understanding of basic physiology. Heart rate has a very distant relationship with energy expended.

None. They're snake oil.

comment Is there a good activity tracker, in terms of calories spent, for skating and cycling?
For cycling, a powermeter gives you almost exactly your calories burned: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/15747/…

VTC, as this will be nothing but rampant speculation.

comment Is there any non-company funded evidence that JuicePlus+ is beneficial to training?
@s3v3ns - "Easier and cheaper" is a copout. And from the ingredient list, there's nothing there that has been proven in peer reviewed studies to do what they claim. (And many peer reviewed on glucosamine and chondroitin have proven it has no actual effect other than placebo). And yes, I have a biased opinion. However, it's based on study reviews and education rather than gym talk and bro-science.

@s3v3ns - Creatine is about the only supplement that has been proven to work, and it's classified as a food substance, not a supplement. The others are banned under most WADA affiliates because of steroids in various forms. Fish oils, vitamins, amino acids are all unnecessary if you have a complete diet. The supplement industry is a snake oil industry preying on hype and gullibility.

@s3v3ns - Supplements usually get banned when they actually contain steroids, rather than steroid precursors (Which don't actually work). From my experience, supplements usually fall into 3 divisions - Banned for steroid elements, not banned because they really don't do much, or not banned because they haven't been tested yet.

comment Which muscles to train and how for horizontal oversplit?
Mmm... more along the lines that if you can get the opposing muscles to relax, they aren't working against the stretch that you are trying to achieve. That's just as much a part of active flexibility as anything.

Then it should probably be a comment instead.

I would add that in addition to flexibility, relaxation during the technique is crucial as well. I can execute an axe kick at a much greater level than static splits would seem to allow.

Perhaps you can add an explanation of what PNF stretching is and why it would be better than regular stretching? I'd also add the cautions that go along with advanced stretching techniques such as PNF.
