comment Should I run everyday or alternate days and run longer?
@IvoFlipse - Sorry, missed the comment. Even at low intensities, you're still getting about half your energy needs from fat burn. The part about not using fat in large amounts until 30-40 minutes is the misconception.

@esker - forum.slowtwitch.com/… - Barry Pollack, aka Baron von Speedypants, BarryP on that forum. All his training links are in that thread, and you can PM him for advice as well once you have enough forum posts

comment Should I avoid bread, noodles and other starches the day before fitness activities?
@Informaficker - "I used to run track" I would not consider as being "related to exercise". The base question is "I read a study that says complex carbs get stored as fat. Should I not eat them?" The track reference really has no bearing on the current situation/question.

Nutrition is off topic - I would suggest you follow the nutrition proposal - area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/44550/nutrition. Also, I would like to see this study, it runs contrary to what I know about carbohydrate metabolism, and I would also suggest you read up on true carbohydrate loading (Which is what your track coach was getting at)

comment why do my hands shake after a workout?
+1 for a nice summation. There are also some theories that there is excess neurotransmitter substance (acetylcholine) still in the nerve interstitial spaces, and this causes the trembling.

comment supplements for building muscle with low level training
@Olav - Also, you look bigger when taking creatine because it draws extra fluid into muscle cells.

comment How can I achieve healthy tendons and balanced muscles, with no particular hurry to bulk up?
+1, and addresses everything I'd have contributed with one exception. If you choose a particular sport, you need to pay a little attention to the muscles used in that sport so that you don't a) over work the sport muscles and b) underwork the non sport muscles. Example: Road Cycling works the lower body extensively, the core (midsection/back) minorly, and the upper body hardly at all.

comment Which activities increase flexibility?
+1 on that, @DaveLiepmann - Too many martial arts instructors teach the same things they learned, whether or not it's good.

Other than being generally fit/strong, are there any other sports/fitness goals? Just asking so as to refine my answer.

comment What are the disadvantages of using steroids or enhancing drugs while training?
@DMoore - Prove that the hip issues are related to drugs and not the natural effects of the sport? Compare that to golf, where many many older golfers have back issues related to the mechanics of the swing itself.

comment What are the disadvantages of using steroids or enhancing drugs while training?
@jasonflaherty - Unfortunately, that is not the case, although it's almost impossible to prove. Nobody knows how good Alex Rodriguez, for example, would have been without drugs. Same for other "legendary" athletes, Lance Armstrong, Lyle Alzado, etc.
