comment How does a layperson measure the effectiveness of a strength building program?
I'm a bit unclear, are you asking how the typical person evaluates a program before he starts? Or after he has being doing it a while?

comment Is having a cold shower right after squatting a risk to the health?
Did you read the article? It's talking about ice baths, not cold showers. It also states that the typical ice bath is warm enough to not risk frostbite. And, the site you link is for cold showers and cold water therapy, not against it.

comment Stomach muscles burn after doing crunches?
I would also suspect a form difference. What many call crunches are hip flexions instead.

comment Is having a cold shower right after squatting a risk to the health?
Can you provide evidence that cold showers are unhealthy? There is a large body of evidence that suggests there are benefits to cold showers.

comment Lat Pulldown vs. Pullups for back strength and bicep development
Ah, I see. I consider pullups and chinups the same thing, just whether they are done with a pronated grip or not.

comment Lat Pulldown vs. Pullups for back strength and bicep development
Here's one, even though my answer needs some improvment. Look at the answers below mine. fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/7261/… - Still looking for where I recently read it.

I don't downvote all your answers, and not many of them. The ones I downvote contain erroneous or unsubstantiated claims,

comment Lat Pulldown vs. Pullups for back strength and bicep development
I'll see if I can find it, but I recently read a comparison where close grip pullups were gauged better as they put the lats through a longer range of motion.

comment Weights after a broken Collar Bone
This is really more a question for your PT, but if you were given the all clear, then any exercise in theory should be available.

comment Is it true that you can eat anything you want within 15 minutes of working out without putting on weight?
Untrue. If all you eat is oreos, but you consume less calories than you expend, you will lose weight. You will suffer other ill health effects related to lack of nutrients, but weight is almost solely a function of calories in versus calories out.

comment Is it okay to eat after exercising?
Yes, I know. You might feel a little sick, but it's very much by individual. There is still no evidence that it produces cramps or incapacitates you.

Arnold took steroids, and has admitted as such.

@BCLC 1 hour after eating before swimming is an old wive's tale.

@Kneel-Before-ZOD - Also, fiber is generally considered to be the undigestable (and thus calorically insignificant) parts of foods. Its recommend for better motility and excretion, as well as binding in the colon.

@RobSterach - If you vote to close as a duplicate, then you are indicating you think the other question already provides suitable answers that cannot be improved.

comment Under What Conditions Will Muscles End Up Weaker After Work Out?
I expect that if he leaves out details and includes ones that don't matter, that you use the comment system as it is intended, and ask that he clarify. I don't expect that you just start guessing random crap and throwing it up as an answer. If you feel the question is too poor to salvage, downvote and vote to close.

This is just throwing spaghetti at the wall. There is no reasoning behind this other than personal guessing.
