comment What are the merits of cycling vs running for a beginner?
Initiator is an English word, however it wasn't really used in the correct context. The entire post just wasn't very clear on what was being asked. The comments asking were so that the question could be edited to make it a better fit and easier to understand.

comment Protein to calorie ratio of beans and pulses vs meat and fish?
100 grams of chicken = 25g protein (219 calories). Same weight, 100 grams lentils = 26g protein (353 calories). However, you also have to look at complete proteins and bioavailablity.

comment How is energy derived from muscle, fat and glucose at different intensities?
From your post: "So if the total energy expenditure is relatively high, 50% from carbohydrates, 40% from fat, and 10% from muscle, which creates lactic acid." And, lactate != lactic acid, despite the common misconception.

comment How is energy derived from muscle, fat and glucose at different intensities?
-1 again for a rather glaring mistake. Lactate (the actual term for what is commonly called lactic acid) does NOT come from burning muscle. I'm also not sure where you got your quote, as it is not from the link that you provided. If you do look at around slide 33 onward, there is good information on the ratios, what lactate actually is/does (It's a secondary fuel source), and where muscle energy comes from.

If your body is to the point of breaking down muscle for energy, you are WAY far over length of exercise, or you have some disease state showing up. Fat stores will be used long before muscle, so unless you are 3% body fat and working out for 5-6 hours, you should have plenty before your body turns to muscle.

It is ratios. It's not like eating the steak, then the peas, then the potatoes. It all gets burned at different ratios according to intensity.

comment Position of weight during weighted pull ups
@zero-divisor to some extent. Open chain if you move the weight off the expected line, it can introduce injury and/or make the exercise unnecessarily difficult (Bringing a bench press down to the hips instead of the chest). If you move the weight away from the central line in a closed chain, it either forces a form adaptation or minimizes the effectiveness (Such as placing a weight plate on the calves when doing pushups, doesn't do much).

Also, your friend needs to be aware of nutritional requirements during this time. Increased iron, folate, calcium, zinc and iodine being primary among these.

+1 right back at you for the recommendation on the internal/external rotation and the rotator cuff plug.

comment Weird measurements of my heart monitor
Anaerobic means without oxygen, and is really only sustainable for short bursts (up to 30ish seconds), and is somewhat unrelated to heart rate. Many elite marathoners will be in the 150-170 range for their races for 2+ hours. My n=1 is that during sprint triathlons (~ 1 hour in duration) I will be anywhere from 150-180 depending on effort level.

Also, a HR of 160 is not "well into the anaerobic".

comment Weird measurements of my heart monitor
150 bpm is not high at all for someone running. However, if your polar HR monitor is reading 160, did you take your pulse manually to compare?

comment relationship between power and body fat
Yes, we do want the message to carry correct information. Your answer is barely even related to the original question.
