comment What exercises can someone with Ligamentous laxity do for supple and strong muscles
@lontgomjr - I would second the Tai Chi. You may be able to supplement with online videos, most "commercial" tai chi can be done that way following along. You could also ask about tai chi over on the martial arts SE site.

comment Is the optimal cadence for racing the same as for conditioning?
@Lysander - Pretty much the latter. Running is running. If you're running for fitness, then you're still running, you just aren't doing the high intensity, up tempo work, and your average pace can be slower. I find that when I'm just running for fitness, I have an average cadence in the 150-160 range, and as I go faster, my stride naturally increases very slightly and my cadence goes up into the 170-190 range depending on my intensity at the time.

comment Optimal cadence for endurance running
@AlexPritchard - Probably both. :) As you get more efficient as a runner, your pace will increase for the same cadence, and the faster you run, the more your cadence will increase as well.

comment What is the missing metric to this graph: days/week exercised -vs ______?
@Jammin4CO - I agree. While the chart is similar and probably comes from the same type of approach, this is not the chart you are referring to. I've also seen it in my studies somewhere, which would originally put it in the early 1990's.

comment Why can't I lose weight?
@Mårten - the 500 is so often recommended because of the 3500 calorie = 1 lb of fat fallacy. That way you theoretically would lose a pound a week.

@LarissaGodzilla you are correct. I put BMI instead of BMR. :/

comment How do I avoid tightening my butt muscles while doing my core exercises?
Are you doing these exercises with weights? Can you clarify what you mean by muscle restrictions, as what you describe won't really do much of anything?
