comment Milk, the feeling of starvation and viability as a basis of your diet as a weightlifter
All milk is water and sugar (Lactose, which is not the same as table sugar/sucrose but it is still a sugar). There are a whopping 50ish calories difference between whole and skim milk, all from milk fat.

comment How should I train for multiple running races simultaneously?
Train for your longest distance. If you have base and speedwork, you should be able to race effectively at any distance up to your targeted max.

I also voted to close. Your question is still about milk and nutrition. Simply saying "I lift and eat extra calories" doesn't make it on topic.

comment What is a balancing movement for overhead press?
Depending on the type of bench you have, you could do reverse press (Pull yourself up to the bar, rather than pressing the bar away from you), but this would require a bench that you could remove the seat or other arrangement to where you could hang completely from the bar. (Think a pushup position, but underneath the bar so you can pull yourself up).

comment Can Starting Strength be done by women realistically?
It may or may not be diet related. It may help if you outlined what/when you are eating and when you are working out, and why you think you need a ketogenic diet.

comment Taking Protein powder with Artificial sweeteners?
@EricKaufman - Nutrition "as it relates to exercise". Show me where in the question it mentions anything about exercise. You make it a habit to answer any question on the site with no regard to the rules and guidelines for asking questions, or whether it is on topic or not. That degrades the value and purpose of the site.

comment Taking Protein powder with Artificial sweeteners?
A good answer to a blatantly off topic question. If you want nutrition to be on topic, maybe you should bring that up on Meta rather than ignoring the guidelines for asking and answering questions on the site.

This is a straight nutrition question and off topic for the site.

comment How to decide what should be the correct height of bicycle and its seat height would be appropriate for me?
It also helps to clarify if you are talking about a road bike, touring bike, mountain bike, etc. Most of the time frame sizes are measured by length of the top tube in cm, not by inches.

comment How to decide what should be the correct height of bicycle and its seat height would be appropriate for me?
This is bad advice. If your leg is completely straight at the bottom of the pedal stroke, then either your seat is raised too high or the bike is too big. (Or possibly you have crank arms that are too long, but that is not a primary suspect). Bad position can create knee and hip problems.

This is probably a better fit (no pun intended) on the bicycle stack exchange.

comment Workout without sweating?
@Tyler - I will grant, however, that if your exercise intensity is low enough, you won't sweat. However, that is likely that the person is also not really working hard.

comment Workout without sweating?
@Tyler - I swam competitively for 17 years in pools regularly in the 70-74 Fahrenheit range, and I can assure you that you sweat. While you don't sweat as much as land based athletics, your body heats up internally, and water can't absorb fast enough to completely obviate the need for sweating. There are a couple of studies that show sweat rates in both elite and untrained people while swimming, here is one sample: jsams.org/article/S1440-2440%2802%2980003-2/abstract?cc=y

comment How can I adjust my cadence?
Both of y'all realize that 180 is not a magical cadence? That was taken by watching elite runners at race pace. My cadence varies from 150-180 depending on my pace, and I've been running close to 30 years injury free now. Arbitrarily forcing yourself to run at a specific cadence despite your pace is begging for injury.

comment Distinguish stretching from warming up?
@TimBiegeleisen - No need to emphasize, as I noted that Dave and Michaels excellent answers already covered that, and that that type of warmup is absolutely recommended if you do a warmup.

comment How can I adjust my cadence?
Are you trying to run faster? Or just increase cadence? If just increasing cadence, why? More detail about what you are trying and why would be helpful.

comment Walking long distance vs cardio
-1. Cortisol production increases with exercise intensity. Additionally, as the body becomes used to the level of effort, cortisol production will start dropping off with the same level of stimulus.

comment Should an overweight person not do Running and skipping because it can hurt knee joints?
Weight without height is meaningless, as is height without weight. 253 lbs at 6'6" is much different than 253 lbs at 5'6".
