comment Felt dizziness half an hour after running for 7 minutes
@JohnDoe - No, I'm saying it should not have been an answer at all. SE sites are not "ask questions and come up with a dx", nor are they "take your best guess and hope". Yes, it "could be" low blood sugar. It "could be" dehydration. It "could be" hundreds of things from minor to potentially life threatening.

comment taking creatine in line with take a diureic
This would be a great answer if you added why creatine works. It doesn't directly add muscle mass, but it enables harder and longer workouts by providing extra fuel, which in turn enables muscle gains, and longer exercise sessions.

Maybe this, maybe that. Guesses don't make good answers. And while possibly reassuring, doubts don't make good diagnoses.

comment Support for ankle inversion trauma during swimming
Unfortunately, you probably can't. The ankle and foot are one of the prime movers of the kick, and they require some motion. You can get an elastic to bind your ankles together so you are only doing pull exercises, but even that won't guarantee no movement. You also can't push off walls that way.

Spot reduction is a myth. And your question has been asked before.

comment Is it necessary to stretch arms after jogging?
What does the amount of muscle use have to do with the need for stretching? One could argue, that since you carry your arms in an artificially biceps shortened pose for a long time (Endurance running), that you need the biceps stretching more, not less.

@Venture2099 - My mistake. I assumed, that since you have multiple stack exchange accounts, that you might have visited the "What topics" section of the help page. Mea culpa. Pardon me sir, but questions regarding nutrition are not considered on topic unless they relate to the benefit or detriment of your workout program. As it stands, your question is likely to be closed as off topic.

comment can Tai chi have any health benefits for elderly people?
@SeanDuggan - I can see it either way as well, but the tai chi practitioners on the MA site could probably give a much more detailed answer about the art in general and the potential benefits for elderly, as well as the precautions to take. I do martial arts but am only tangentially familiar with tai chi.

@Venture2099 - Seriously? From the help center on questions you can ask: "nutrition as it relates to exercise", fitness.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic, meta.fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/287/…, meta.fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/306/…, meta.fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/560/…, meta.fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/300/…

Yes. Although this might be a better fit on the martial arts SE.

@Venture2099 - Actually, yes, unless they relate to a fitness plan. That was decided a long time ago.

How is this related to fitness, other than "I move around"?

comment How can one improve performance on the back scratch test (zipper test)?
Apley Scratch (IIRC) only tests to be able to reach C7 (Approx top of scapula) on the "overhead" reach, and T7 (Approx bottom of scapula) on the "underhand" reach. Neither of these require the hand to travel along the spine, merely reaching the opposite side scapula is enough. Being able to clasp hands is defined as hypermobility, and associated with prevalence towards soft tissue injury and instability. If you look at the USMS link I provided above and look at studies on shoulder hypermobility and injury, it's interesting reading.

You're recommending a stretch that is known to produce injury and unstable joints.

comment How can one improve performance on the back scratch test (zipper test)?
This used to be a common swimmer stretch, and is now contraindicated because of injury and overstretching.

comment How can one improve performance on the back scratch test (zipper test)?
What's your source? Everything I can find on the GALS screen doesn't include this test. However, safe swimming stretches will help with shoulder mobility. usmsswimmer.com/201001/swimmer_stretching.pdf

comment Why does Dmitry Klokov stagger his feet?
It's also entirely possible that this is his normal bone structure. My right foot points out the way his left does, and my knee still tracks/points straight ahead. Any attempt to "correct" this and point my foot straight ahead soon produces pain.
