comment What lifts shouldn't I do with a posterior labrum tear?
@GeoreShg - So...the entire sarcasm of the post goes over your head and you focus on a misworded title? Your question is off topic and asking for medical advice. Offering a bounty on a bad question won't help anything.

comment How to identify what type of body is yours
Proteins are better for one "body type" than another? After 30 years in exercise science and 40 in athletics, I have heard something new. Congratulations.

comment How to gain weight despite doing lots of endurance training
x2 on the tracking. You appear to only have a vague idea of how much you expend and how much you take in. (Not really a criticism, just an observation. Many people are in the same situation).

comment What are some mind tricks to eat better
VTC as being off topic for several reason. It's general health, opinion based and very broad. There isn't even an attempt at making it workout related.

comment Is gluten free diet a fad or does it have legitimate health reasons?
There's a difference between an addictive, destructive drug and a diet choice. She's saying that some people feel better on a gluten free diet, give it a try and see how you feel. Other than that, your question is off topic for the site.

Also as an FYI, the body classifications of ecto/meso/endomorph have pretty much been debunked.

comment Road bicycles for weight loss
@Jaydee - energy (kcal) = avg power (W) X duration (hours) X 3.6. That's been a commonly measured and accepted formula for a while. You multiply by 3.6 because human efficiency on a bike is 20-25% (Again, extensively measured and commonly accepted). While it is not exact as multiplying it out, the common usage is to multiply the watts readout (technically it's measured in kj) x 4 to get your calorie expenditure for whatever amount of time.

comment Sticking it out for longer
Slow down. You're running 6 minute mile pace. Try running at a 7 minute/mile pace for 30 minutes. For endurance exercise, you shouldn't be "breathing really hard".

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
@Noumenon - 6 lbs for 24 hours for....who? If I say that number, and someone gains 10 lbs, they will freak and wonder what's wrong. Or wonder why they only gain 2 lbs. The only answer is that it's transitory and doesn't matter. Scale watchers should watch trends, not day to day fluctuations. And the reason I vtc and answered is that I don't think the question is a good one for the site, but if it's going to remain, then it should have at least an explanation of why it's not an answerable question for the masses.
