comment What are some free dynamic workout routine generator apps?
This question appears to be off-topic because (From the FAQ) every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?”

comment Essential Amino Acid supplement, JUST the Essentials?
@Ellocomotive - Supplementation questions are absolutely on topic if they are related to an exercise program for an individual. That was hashed out before I came to the site, when nutrition unrelated to exercise was made off topic (it was formerly on topic). If you disagree, by all means, please raise the question on meta where it can be debated.

comment Essential Amino Acid supplement, JUST the Essentials?
@JasonCaldwell - Yes, it is unless you can relate it to your personal exercise program and how knowing this will improve it. I would suggest that you read the help section on what you can and can't ask here.

comment Essential Amino Acid supplement, JUST the Essentials?
@Ellocomotive - You have been here long enough you should know that nutrition is off topic unless it is directly related to a persons exercise program. Strictly nutrition questions such as this ARE off topic. And simply saying "I work out" doesn't make it on topic.

comment Are there any advantages of being an ectomorph?
Bro - welcome to the site. I encourage you to take the tour and read the recommendations on how questions and answers should be formed, as this is different than a discussion site.

comment Effective cardio regimen for someone Ehlers-Danlos (hypermobility & arthritis) + bad IT band problems
@Logos - I can understand that frustration, but you need a trained professional that can see you, not a bunch of monkeys on the internet throwing spaghetti at the wall. As Aleksander notes, there is a real possibility that someone would give well meaning advice that would leave you worse off than you are now.

comment How are different foods measured when nutrition is calculated? Are shells/cores/peels taken into account?
@Macejkou - Nutrition is off topic unless it directly relates to a fitness program, such as "Here's my diet, here's my fitness routine, how can I optimize?". Simply asking about food is off topic, unfortunately. There is a nutrition proposal and a health proposal, I would encourage you to follow them and help them become sites: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/66048/health and area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/70876/nutrition

comment penis erection problems is this due to smoking
Sure, smoking "can be" the cause. So can stress, poor nutrition, injury, disease, any number of causes.

comment What are the most effective ab exercises in terms of muscle activation?
@Moses - More misinterpretation than misinformation. The obliques are part of the abdomen, but not really part of the abdominals, if that makes any sense. Abdominals (in the usual sense) is more just the rectus abdominus. Most people hear upper abs, lower abs, etc., and assume they are separate muscles.

comment What are the most effective ab exercises in terms of muscle activation?
Being able to activate a "section" of the abs (Upper, middle, lower) is a myth. It's one sheet of muscle. The obliques are not really ab muscles per se, but they are part of the muscle groups that make up the torso muscles (Also commonly called core muscles).
