comment Got testosterone levels checked; nurse reported levels without units. Is there any way I can know what units she's assuming I know?
It's most likely bioavailable, because that doesn't make sense as a free, and that would be way low (supplement levels) for total in a 22 year old male. I would check back with the clinic.

comment Why do I get loss of vision (Scintillating scotoma) then migraine / headache after workout?
Yeah, we have very little of that in the US (Thank you privatized health care), there are blood pressure kiosks, but they are a crapshoot as far as being calibrated or not.

comment Is there a heart rate monitor that will notify me if I exceed a specific heart rate?
Did you do any research at all? This is one of the most common features of nearly every heart rate monitor out there.

comment What's a good snack or meal to have before weightlifting?
This is going to be highly individual, what works for one person may not work for another. I would encourage you to read the help and intro sections to help you form good questions for the site.

comment a good diet for a person with high mind activity?
@virtouso - SImply saying "Oh yeah, I walk occasionally" doesn't constitute an exercise regimen.

comment a good diet for a person with high mind activity?
@virtouso - Nutrition is off topic unless it is part of an exercise regimen, and relates directly to that. There is nothing about working out in your posting.

comment Books about sports nutrition based up on scientific facts?
@SeanDuggan - I'm generally not a fan of diet books and diet exposes and diet thisorthats, but Matt Fitzgerald is a solid recommendation. I really like his racing weight cookbook as well, one of the better samplings in that vein that I can recall in a long time.

comment Why do I get loss of vision (Scintillating scotoma) then migraine / headache after workout?
@Firsh - Sorry, I don't buy it. However, medical advice/diagnosis is off topic for the site, and there is no way for anyone to look at a computer screen and make a diagnosis without a physical and other exams. I am sorry if you have had less than stellar experiences with doctors, but that does not invalidate the entire profession.

@arober11 - Good point, I thought it was 300. Still should be a comment rather than answer, and you can always flag.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about book recommendations.

If your main answer is "go see a doctor", then you should vote to close rather than give a bad answer. (I say bad answer, because sure, hypotension could be a factor, but so could dozens of other things.

@rrirower - Two people agree medical attention is needed, but neither recorded a close vote?

It's been more than a year. I would think it he had actually injured his spleen he'd have known it before now.

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.

comment cycle or swim without injury while training hard for a race
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.
