comment Is rucking (running with weight in backpack) a bad idea?
@BerinLoritsch - They are very close, but I voted to leave open as there was not a definitive answer on the other question, most of the answers were "Check out this backpack!" and similar. I did VTC the other as being a product recommendation.

comment Running with a backpack
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's essentially about a product recommendation.

comment Guidelines on whey protein, glutamine, creatine, amino acid supplements
Creatine has long been proven as one of the few workout supplements that delivers. I would consider someone starting a workout regimen under a personal trainer to be a serious athlete, and probably one that would benefit from the creatine. The glutamin/amino acids, not so much. Protein powder, if needed to fulfill protein requirements in the absence of real food.

Agreed, and it's a good answer, but "I really really don't understand it..... what's going on? Why does it work?" is not answered.

How does this explain his question about why opening his hands automatically moves his shoulders back?

comment Exercises for “toughening” rotator cuffs
Mmm...not really on the swimming part. The problem is, that unless you have good form, leisurely swimming can be just as hard if not harder on the shoulders and elbows than competitive. I might amend it to reflect that, and add that many RC exercises can be done against resistance in a pool and still get a decent aerobic workout in. (BTW, I did not DV your answer at all, I like the rest of it.)

comment Rotator cuff strengthening for shoulder overuse injury
@Tyler - If you are not rehabbing, then standing should be ok. Lying allows all the support muscles to basically be relaxed, as they are not having to maintain shoulder elevation. Very small difference.

Unless you have good form, swimming can be incredibly hard on the RC.
