comment Is there any objective reason for the hatred towards the pulldown machine?
@Mephisto - Why don't you want to name a "well known" fitness company? Vagueposting doesn't really benefit anyone.

comment I'm missing my left leg, What can I do for exercise?
Take a look at the Men's Health from a month or two ago. Their man of the year has one arm and one leg and is in amazing shape. (Combat veteran).

comment How do I start a diet?
"detoxification" is a myth perpetuated by the greedy and the uninformed.

comment How much do I need to sleep?
@Hritik - Every person is different. 7 hours is "good" for any age, but it may be more than you personally need, or it may not be enough. We can't tell you either way. If you are concerned about your sleep and general health, I would suggest you talk with a doctor and possibly get a referral for sleep studies.

comment How to avoid Creatine dependence?
Mmmm...it does, but not in the way you are thinking. It can make recovery between sets faster, but it doesn't build muscle faster in the recovery phase. It's an energy base/supplement, it doesn't really affect after workout recovery/muscle building.

comment How to avoid Creatine dependence?
@Alec - Good answer, but creatine doesn't really enhance recovery. What it does is increase the amount of creatine available in cells, to transform used up ADP back into ATP. It allows a person to work slightly longer and harder, which will increase eventual gains.

comment Should I care about Low Testosterone?
This is a very personal question, and medical advise as well. Both of these are off topic for the site, unfortunately.

comment What kind of feet do I have?
While your question in the current form is off topic for our site, there are many running shoe stores that offer gait and foot analysis to better fit you into a suitable shoe.

comment By systematical training, can strength and muscle continue to grow despite the aging?
-1 for recommending testosterone "because it seems healthy". We know testosterone and other steroids in younger people have serious health effects, just because elderly testosterone supplementation has not been popular enough to do long term studies doesn't mean it is automatically safe.

comment By systematical training, can strength and muscle continue to grow despite the aging?
@Zuriel - For a while, yes. You can stave off age related decline, and stay very fit, but you probably won't be lifting heavier at 60 than you are at 30. Testosterone decline is king when it comes to things like that, unfortunately.

comment Simple Diet Advice?
You keep saying "macros". For people that are new to nutrition, they do not know what "macro" is short for, or what those might be. Can you elaborate on your shorthand?

comment Weight lifting and dental care
oral internal derangement and TMJ problems are common with people who lift heavy weights and clench/grind their teeth. To blanketly say that lifting doesn't cause toothache is just not true.

comment Why is swimming considered a safe exercise?
Is your question about swimming? Or the temperature of the water? Your title says one thing, then you ask a difference question in the body.

comment Leg extension machine: Calculate calories burned and watt
@Mephisto - It could be related to fitness. If he could explain his fitness program and why it would help to track calories per rep, I would have no problem with it, and would retract the close vote. Until that happens, it's just as off topic as "what kind of material should I use to make a jumprope?" (Although I question why you would compare this formula to two other useless and bad formulae :p)

comment Leg extension machine: Calculate calories burned and watt
@Mephisto - Not quite. I'd have to dig up the study, but they proved that the synergy in two limbed movements such as curls/extensions actually used less energy (although it was a slight difference) than individual limb effort after both sides calculated. But, if he's trying to get down to counting calories for individual reps, that would make a difference. Still way too granular to be actually useful, though.
