comment What do we mean by “aerobic” and “anaerobic”?
@Jimsan - Actually, exercising at ANY capacity is either aerobic, anaerobic or some mixture of the two. All that aerobic and anaerobic refer to is the primary energy source/pathway during exercise. "Zones" are arbitrary terms designed to present a complex concept in an easy to understand fashion. I grit my teeth occasionally when I hear HIIT trainees claim "Yeah, I spent a whole hour anaerobic!" So your 80-90%, if you keep that up for more than 2 minutes, you are exercising aerobically. Anaerobic doesn't last more than 30 sec - 2 mins, maximum.

comment Training to not drink in hot weather
@JamesF - I wouldn't worry about it. You're talking about a pound or two of water, that's not going to impact "your range" as much as not having the water will negatively impact both length and quality of your run. I suggest a camelback pack, that's what I use on long runs/rides.

comment Any input on fixing running form with resistance training?
@alesplin - Nope, I didn't miss it. That's only a small factor in the injury rate anyway.

Also, you should look at some of the studies on injury rates among runners that switch to chi/pose/[insert your fad of the day here]

comment How do I check my own form doing weight lifting?
So, in a squat for example, are you supposed to turn your neck to the side while in the middle of the exercise to check your back alignment?

mmm...not much you can do weights wise to counteract a long gait. Mostly it's going to be form drills and concentration.

comment When is isolating certain muscles beneficial?
Outside of a laboratory, NO exercise "isolates" one muscle. A specific muscle group may be the emphasis of the exercise, but you cannot isolate a single muscle or muscle group (Such as biceps)

comment If I am at risk for health condition caused by overweight/obesity, what's the fastest way to cure myself (reduce weight/fat/etc)?
personal and anecdotal = broscience. I know quite a few people that hired a nutritionist, trainer and followed a program at the gym to lose their weight. Can you without joining a gym? Yes. Can you with joining a gym? Yes. Most of it is going to depend on the personality of the person, and whether they have the mentality to go it on their own.

comment If I am at risk for health condition caused by overweight/obesity, what's the fastest way to cure myself (reduce weight/fat/etc)?
Mmm...it's not worth a downvote, but saying not to join a gym is impractical. Just wandering around your house hoisting random furniture won't do much, and there is no consideration for instruction or proper form both of which you can get at a gym.

comment Effect of High Muscle on 'Bands' of Body Fat
I couldn't find any scholarly articles, but it's what I remember from my ex phys classes in college, and there are tons of articles both "broscience" and more reputable on the web.

comment Knee Articular Cartilage pain
Cartilage damage is very slow and difficult to heal as there is no blood vessel supply, it all relies on diffusion. More exercise won't help. Torn cartilage may or may not repair on its own, and with it being worn as well, you are likely looking at a long healing time. Many people I've known with knee cartilage damage/injury eventually required some sort of surgery.

comment Glutamine to increase muscle mass through better recovery
Glutamine can easily be made in the body in sufficient quantities, unless you've got some sort of disease state, high stress or something else going on. And creatine is one of the very few supplements that has actually been a) proven to work, and b) classified as safe by just about every sports governing body known.

comment Are there benefits in having a post workout shake before a workout?
80 grams of protein is only 320 calories. Your body won't "tuck it away as fat". Also, 20-30 grams of protein per hour, for an 8 hour day is 160-240 grams of protein. That's 2-3g/kg of protein for an 80kg individual. Way overkill.
