comment Punchbag without boxing gloves, getting a headache
Do you remember if you were holding your breath during the straight punch? Common technique among untrained people using a heavy bag is to hold their breath during hard punches. This can spike the blood pressure, and lead to headaches.

comment Plank Progressions
Body stays in place but you can lift a leg, leg and hand, etc. For example, google side star plank and you get a few different variations of a side plank with one arm and leg moving.

comment Plank Progressions
Do you do side planks? Also, you can throw a weight plate on your back and do planks, or do moving plank variations.

comment Why do I keep regaining weight and feel lethargic on my diet?
Reading comprehension. You're doing it wrong.

comment Improving breathing in a deeply bent leg situation (diaphragm compression?)
No, you may very well be compressing your abdomen and affecting the diaphragm, I just disagree with your corollary that it is being caused by the legs. More likely a curling in of the upper body/torso, rather than having a straight back.

comment Is it safe for me to run an 8k in 30 minutes?
Yeah, our school had 22 boys between varsity/jv and 20ish girls, IIRC.

comment Is LCHF diet the best and easy way to loose fat?
They are for when it is related to fitness, not just "Hey, I work out" or "Hey, wanna loose [sic] fat". And some tags are from the early days of the site when nutrition was on topic.

The lettering depends on the talent around him and the team standards. Our high school, mid 18's wouldn't have gotten you on the varsity (in 1985). But, a newer team across town, mid 18's would have put you in the #1 or #2 slot. YMMV.

comment Improving breathing in a deeply bent leg situation (diaphragm compression?)
Your diaphragm runs side to side at the bottom of your ribcage. You shouldn't have much impact to it even in a pike stretch unless you are curling/compressing your upper body/torso. Almost nothing you can do with your legs should affect it.

This is off topic. There is nothing resembling a workout regimen or fitness relation. It's a straight diet question.

It may or may not be safe, we don't know your fitness level. You can certainly try, but 6 minute miles is a pretty decent pace. At 5'9ish and 120 lbs, you certainly have a perfect cross country runners build.

The net calcium effect of protein is beneficial, actually. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20717017

comment How to keep swimming stroke consistent while swimming?
Trekker - We can certainly discuss it in chat, but I'm of the general opinion that TI teaches a safe stroke that at least allows people to complete swims. I very much disagree that it teaches any kind of a fast stroke, except for those that it "clicks" with. I'm not against TI in general, but I try to steer people that want to be more competitive as swimmers away from it.

comment How to keep swimming stroke consistent while swimming?
Mmm...TI is ok if you have never swum before. It teaches a stroke that can be done, but (in my experience) can rarely produce a fast swimmer.

comment Is it possible to get taller after 25?
Possible? Maybe. If your growth plates haven't closed, then yes it's possible. At 26 however, it's highly unlikely unless you have one of a few different growth abnormalities. If you are really worried, talk to a doctor and have your growth plates x-rayed.

This is a poor answer to a bad question.
