comment What rowing machines are best for both cardio and strength training?
Unfortunately off topic - From the help section on what to avoid asking: every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?” Asking for a "best" anything is just going to result in personal opinion answers.

comment How many calories will I burn walking one mile?
@Jan - Of course you don't believe it, because you want the opposite to be true, so you bring up all the extreme arguments. Obviously, if you have health problems or body necessities (such as lactose intolerance), you should avoid certain foods. However, you still have to take care to add the missing things that those foods would give you. And if you hate fish, obviously don't eat fish, but that is a small portion of the protein group.

comment Taping the back for good posture
@TVMohini - We expect questions about such things as posture to be related to an ongoing fitness program. Simply saying "I have bad posture, how do I correct it?" is general medical advice and off topic. It needs to be related to your own fitness program and what the impact of bad posture is.

This is not related to physical fitness and is off topic for the site.

comment How many calories will I burn walking one mile?
@Jan - Yes, I suppose that is true. However vegans jump through a lot of unnecessary hoops to make sure that they get all their macronutrients, (esp. complete proteins), as well as many vitamins/minerals that only come in large amounts in animal protein. I still think it's dumb, and if not planned right, you will suffer nutritional deficiencies.

comment Hit my fat percentage wall, help me out I would give it all
@howtechstuffworks - You should have put all of that in your original question. However, you can't "hit that belly fat", spot reduction is a myth. And only you can tell if it's too ambitious.

@Noumenon - It's still personal medical advice no matter how you cast it.

comment Is it harmful not to wear an underwear while running?
@Soccerman - And of course you have empirical data to support that they did this and did not suffer injury as a result, yes? Don't make dumb correlations that have no meaning.

Are you male or female? That makes a difference.

comment How many calories will I burn walking one mile?
@Jan - Sweets, sweetened beverages and fruit juices are not food groups. While it is not perfect, the food pyramid is pretty decent. Dairy is an entire food category. I reiterate, any diet that relies on removing an entire food group is dumb and potentially harmful.

Not sure why this is downvoted? The question is off topic, but this is good, solid advice.

comment Does training > 75% MHR benefit aerobic base?
@Joe - 220-age is one of the worst myths in exercise science. Do one of the field stress tests that you can monitor either yourself or with a friend and a stopwatch. You'll get much better results, especially if you repeat at 3 or 6 month intervals.

comment Does training > 75% MHR benefit aerobic base?
How did you determine your MHR? And if you say anything other than a ECG monitored clinical stress test, your MHR is at best a guess.

comment Vitamins: How much is too much?
This is off topic for the site, but I would encourage you to look at some of the recent studies done on OTC vitamin supplements and their composition.

comment Best protocol for self assisted pull-ups?
This is both too broad, will be mostly opinion based, and there are multiple questions within one.
