comment Overhead presses when hyperlordotic
Are you sure that you are hyperlordotic and that it isn't just your natural curvature?

comment Cramps in calves
You are asking for us to diagnose your pain, which is off topic. I will say that you can't stretch/massage or otherwise manipulate your fascia. Read the summary of this study and stop buying into hype: jaoa.org/content/108/8/379.full

comment can you get worse at vertical jump instantly?
More likely you had a perfect jump than anything.

comment Arm size growth and halt
Can you summarize the articles, rather than just linking and saying "go read"? If the links ever die, the answer is useless.

comment If I lift on the moon will I get stronger?
@tannman357 - No. The same rules apply in reverse. You would just not be able to lift as much on Jupiter as you can on Earth. If you want to simulate it, Jupiter is about 2.5x that of Earth, if you weigh 200 lbs go strap on another 300 lbs and walk around. You'll get just as strong as you would walking around normally on Jupiter.

comment D-Ribose and keto
Do you have sources for the chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia claims? Everything I can find on it shows it to have insufficient evidence for those claims, and the studies that I can find are all funded/done by the labs themselves. If this genuinely helps I would be interested, as I have a couple friends with fibromyalgia.

comment Is the muscle pump after exercise due to increased cellular Na (due to reduced ATP availability)?
@TomM - Muscle evo quote-"For one, these are the results from just one study. As I mentioned in The Sherlock Holmes Guide to Separating Fitness Fact from Fiction, one study is not really news. It’s only when you get several studies showing the same thing, ideally from different research groups, that it’s worth sitting up and paying attention." For the Kaatsu method, the originator almost killed himself doing it, and the only other link is a hockey player that got hospitalized trying it. It may be a great thing, but I'm not holding my breath on it. :p

comment Is there a benefit to doing crunches over sit-ups?
@jp2code - I'm not. But if it's just as easy for a doc to get sued for saying "do situps", isn't it just as easy to get sued for saying "do crunches"?

@jp2code - What if they say do crunches and you injure yourself? Aren't they then just as "liable"?

comment Is the muscle pump after exercise due to increased cellular Na (due to reduced ATP availability)?
@TomM - Certain? No. Fairly sure? Yes. Most exercise sessions will produce momentary ischemia, but not enough to produce an extended hypoxia state. Where I might see it happening in an otherwise healthy individual is in swimmers doing hypoxic sets (Which in itself doesn't do anything for you), or other activities where you are forced to hold your breath for extended periods, but even that reverses once oxygen is re-introduced.

You're missing my point, I think. It takes extended time to produce the hypoxic effects that you're describing, it won't happen (or very minimally) during exercise, and the body will pretty much correct it right away.

Also, your first link is discussing hypoxic injury. You're pursuing something that really won't happen in an exercise session. Momentary hypoxia due to exertion won't result in the injury states that cause the hypoxia effects that are being discussed in the nursing times article.

See if you can get Darko Sarovic to chime in. He's more up to date than I am.

comment Please recommend some exercise on legs
@JordanCarroll - If you go to google scholar and type in "squat knee health" there are some studies on squats and knee biomechanics in both healthy and diseased state groups, as well as some rehab writeups.
