comment I have a bit of a tummy. To avoid it getting larger, can I do gym exercises only for my abdomen?
@Noumenon - It's best not to jump on people for spelling/grammar, as there are many users for whom English is not a native language. Just edit and move on.

comment temporal instantiation of workout function
It's also better if you try to avoid the cute programming allegories and just ask a straight question.

comment Theory to burn Calories with muscle
I don't know if you linked the wrong study, but the one that you linked was merely a sampling cohort used to validate modeling predictions. There was no workout/weight gain. The difference in kg that you are seeing is simply the difference in weights in the subjects. Those are the points on the scatter plots, it's not an indication of gain over time.

comment Is there any objective reason for the hatred towards the pulldown machine?
@Mephisto - See? That wasn't so hard. :) Crossfit has quite a few practices that many mainstream physical conditioning specialists disagree with. I agree that kipping pullups are a quick road to injury for untrained individuals (Such as 95% of the people that walk off the road into a crossfit studio). More trained individuals with good basic pullup form can do things like kipping pullups with much less risk. However, the basic form has to be rock solid first.

comment Practical Programming + Couch to 5K - Diet
What is your goal? Do you want to lose weight? Increase muscle? Both? What is your current fitness history, and height/weight/gender?

comment Is there any objective reason for the hatred towards the pulldown machine?
@Mephisto - Why don't you want to name a "well known" fitness company? Vagueposting doesn't really benefit anyone.

comment I'm missing my left leg, What can I do for exercise?
Take a look at the Men's Health from a month or two ago. Their man of the year has one arm and one leg and is in amazing shape. (Combat veteran).

"detoxification" is a myth perpetuated by the greedy and the uninformed.

comment How much do I need to sleep?
@Hritik - Every person is different. 7 hours is "good" for any age, but it may be more than you personally need, or it may not be enough. We can't tell you either way. If you are concerned about your sleep and general health, I would suggest you talk with a doctor and possibly get a referral for sleep studies.

comment How to avoid Creatine dependence?
Mmmm...it does, but not in the way you are thinking. It can make recovery between sets faster, but it doesn't build muscle faster in the recovery phase. It's an energy base/supplement, it doesn't really affect after workout recovery/muscle building.

comment How to avoid Creatine dependence?
@Alec - Good answer, but creatine doesn't really enhance recovery. What it does is increase the amount of creatine available in cells, to transform used up ADP back into ATP. It allows a person to work slightly longer and harder, which will increase eventual gains.

comment Should I care about Low Testosterone?
This is a very personal question, and medical advise as well. Both of these are off topic for the site, unfortunately.

comment What kind of feet do I have?
While your question in the current form is off topic for our site, there are many running shoe stores that offer gait and foot analysis to better fit you into a suitable shoe.

comment By systematical training, can strength and muscle continue to grow despite the aging?
-1 for recommending testosterone "because it seems healthy". We know testosterone and other steroids in younger people have serious health effects, just because elderly testosterone supplementation has not been popular enough to do long term studies doesn't mean it is automatically safe.

comment By systematical training, can strength and muscle continue to grow despite the aging?
@Zuriel - For a while, yes. You can stave off age related decline, and stay very fit, but you probably won't be lifting heavier at 60 than you are at 30. Testosterone decline is king when it comes to things like that, unfortunately.
