comment Breathing during running
@Alec - I know it's a summary, and I would like to read further, I just don't have access to that particular site. Unfortunately, all the summary says is that they infer there is a link in humans because other mammals adapted it. I would be interested in seeing if they address the fact that humans are the only mammals (that I am aware of) that exercise and run for sport, and if that makes a difference.

comment Is it okay to eat after exercising?
This is a misinterpretation of the timing recommended to consume carbohydrates with some protein to restore muscle glycogen. As can be seen in studies like this, a 3:1 carb to protein ratio is ideal for replenishing muscle glycogen. Supplement companies jumped on this and push the misinformation as @Alec stated. This more applies to endurance exercise than it does to weightlifting types of exercise.

comment Breathing during running
@Alec - Hard to say what's to counter. It was something published in sciencemag (Not a recognized journal) 30 years ago, and the abstract says "Hey, there might be a link in humans because other mammals evolved it". If you have a source or copy for the full article, I'd love to read it.

comment Breathing during running
This is the right answer. Just breathe as you need to. Don't worry about strides, or timing, whatever. Just breathe.

Rotate how? Are you able to grab with a hand on either side (much like you would a pole vault pole)?

comment How reliable is this study for the relationship between heart rate and calories burned?
@Frisbee - It's still lactate, ethanol, CO2 and H2O, but it can be converted back into pyruvate or glucose for fuel use. The lactate threshold is where exercise is intense enough that it starts to accumulate in the blood rather than being carried off. This is different for everyone, and can be influenced/increased by specific training.

comment Would this work for a teen looking to get lean?
@Souljacker - When trying to get lean, strict attention to calories is the most important thing you can do.

comment Friend is benching 405 through a “secret workout?”
Heavy binge drinking will only depress your testosterone about 25%. Unless you're already near the lower edges of normal, a bout of drinking won't depress it enough to warrant any drug interventions. However, any "anti aging" doctor that lays claim to that specialty would write the scrip regardless.

comment Good shoes for knee pain
Any answer to this question will be entirely opinion based, which makes it a bad fit for the SE model. The models that you list all have different fit and drop characteristics as well. I would recommend going to a running shoe store that does gait analysis and tell them what you want. And, just to toss it out there, I know a lot of older triathletes that swear by the Hoka One One shoes/brand.
