comment Will biking 5 miles 5 days a week shrink or strengthen my leg muscles?
Obviously it depends on the individual, but 10 mph pace on a bike is neither rigorous or calorie taxing. At that pace, a 185 lb individual will burn less than 200 calories for a 30 minute ride.

How far is your triathlon? And are you sure about the distance? 10 miles per hour is a very leisurely pace.

comment Is it time for me to get serious about losing weight? (pics)
@Livingtitan - As Frisbee says, you are obese, and teetering near the edges of being morbidly obese. "Could be" denial, it IS denial. Additionally, you are asking for digestive problems if you keep wearing pants with waistbands that tight. Just because you can get the buttons in, doesn't mean it's actually fitting. (If your pants are what you are basing your "38 waist" on).

Meso/ecto/endomorphs have been debunked, they are not accurate descriptors for bodies.

@MR04 - Not really, no. Not as a daily standard, anyway.

comment What causes fatigue and light head when running?
When do you run in relation to your mealtimes? As @SeanDuggan says, first thought is low blood sugar, second thought is lack of proper breathing (Barring some congenital defect, of course).

comment Breathing during running
@Alec - I know it's a summary, and I would like to read further, I just don't have access to that particular site. Unfortunately, all the summary says is that they infer there is a link in humans because other mammals adapted it. I would be interested in seeing if they address the fact that humans are the only mammals (that I am aware of) that exercise and run for sport, and if that makes a difference.

comment Is it okay to eat after exercising?
This is a misinterpretation of the timing recommended to consume carbohydrates with some protein to restore muscle glycogen. As can be seen in studies like this, a 3:1 carb to protein ratio is ideal for replenishing muscle glycogen. Supplement companies jumped on this and push the misinformation as @Alec stated. This more applies to endurance exercise than it does to weightlifting types of exercise.

comment Breathing during running
@Alec - Hard to say what's to counter. It was something published in sciencemag (Not a recognized journal) 30 years ago, and the abstract says "Hey, there might be a link in humans because other mammals evolved it". If you have a source or copy for the full article, I'd love to read it.

comment Breathing during running
This is the right answer. Just breathe as you need to. Don't worry about strides, or timing, whatever. Just breathe.

Rotate how? Are you able to grab with a hand on either side (much like you would a pole vault pole)?
