comment Is stretching more difficult once the muscle mass is bigger?
@Kneel-Before-ZOD - We are :) I was just talking about the "bulkier you are" perception. I believe Ron Coleman used to do the splits on stage as part of his posing routine.

@Kneel-Before-ZOD - It doesn't. Many bodybuilders are not flexible because they don't work at it. And while gymnasts are not as bulky, their functional strength is often greater than bodybuilders.

comment How to gain weight despite doing lots of endurance training
x2 on the tracking. You appear to only have a vague idea of how much you expend and how much you take in. (Not really a criticism, just an observation. Many people are in the same situation).

comment What are some mind tricks to eat better
VTC as being off topic for several reason. It's general health, opinion based and very broad. There isn't even an attempt at making it workout related.

comment High intensity performance training
Nobody can tell YOU what YOUR heart rate might be. Also, calories burned on a treadmill is only slightly better than a pure guess.

comment Is gluten free diet a fad or does it have legitimate health reasons?
There's a difference between an addictive, destructive drug and a diet choice. She's saying that some people feel better on a gluten free diet, give it a try and see how you feel. Other than that, your question is off topic for the site.

comment Does HIIT induce weight loss without loss of muscle

comment work out makes my BP drop
If you truly had a blood pressure of 12/8, you'd be dead. Did you mean 120/80 and 80/50? And how are you measuring this?

comment Road bicycles for weight loss
@Jaydee - energy (kcal) = avg power (W) X duration (hours) X 3.6. That's been a commonly measured and accepted formula for a while. You multiply by 3.6 because human efficiency on a bike is 20-25% (Again, extensively measured and commonly accepted). While it is not exact as multiplying it out, the common usage is to multiply the watts readout (technically it's measured in kj) x 4 to get your calorie expenditure for whatever amount of time.
