comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
Voted to close as being too broad, as you ask four very broad questions in the same paragraph. The only way to truly tell your "maximum" heart rate is through a progressive stress test.

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
I won't downvote it, but you should add that the "220-age" is one of the worst myths in exercise science.

comment Why do artificial steroids build muscle while artificial leptin does nothing to prevent hunger?
While this is a great question, it's not really on topic unless you can relate it to your own fitness program. How would knowing this information help your own fitness goals? As it stands, it's interesting trivia.

comment I can't breathe through my nose, does this cause excessive sweating during exercise?
NO NO NO NO NO NO! Do NOT do this. If it is medically necessary, physicians can do facial procedures. "falling on your face" at a gentle jog can produce severe injuries, up to and including paralysis if you hit at an angle. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
HOW is it fitness related? How would knowing/seeing this information help your own fitness program? Your basic questions is "I need an app to do X". Just because X relates to a body part doesn't make it fitness oriented. Same if I asked "I want to plot my O2 sats on a graph. What app will do that?" Simply saying "While I do exercise" doesn't make it on topic.

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an application recommendation that isn't fitness related.

@EricKaufman - Fair enough. Just seemed odd. :)

comment How many Honey do I need for a UltraMarathon 80K and 4400meters D+?
@Artemination - This is just basic calorie math, and pretty much irrelevant to your personal situation. Some people can't absorb honey without a lot of water, people's calorie absorption rates vary wildly. The best way to find out is to use honey in practice and see how you feel.

@EricKaufman - Why on earth would you vote to close and then answer the question?

comment Does bicycling improve abs?
It's quite possibly the cycling, as you will use both abdominals and back muscles for stability. The harder your efforts, the more you will tend to tense those muscles to counterbalance.

I would suggest seeing a PT or sports doc. We can't diagnose a long time pain, unfortunately.

comment What's wrong with non-drinkable water in public toilets?
While this is a good answer to a bad question, can you please refrain from answering obviously off topic questions? It only encourages more of the same.

comment Does floor wipers help in getting rid of fat on hips?
Body fat works on the LIFO concept. Last In, First Out. So if you gain fat in your face, then stomach, then hips, it will come off in the order of hips, stomach, face.
