comment combining Greasing the Groove with regular strength workout
If the OP wants to emphasize strength over size, why recommend something that "helps with upper body hypertrophy"?

Work your forearm/grip strength more on your left side to make it equal to right.

Finger tip curls, and pretty much any exercise that bends your hands/wrist towards your forearm.

comment is running speed only a (body weight) / (leg strength) ratio?
If you want to run sub 7:30 for a marathon, it takes miles and miles. There are no shortcuts. As I've said often on here, "Run. Run lots. Mostly slow, sometimes fast." There are no shortcuts. Most runners go too fast for their slow paces, and too slow for their fast paces. Did I mention there are no shortcuts?

comment Approx. how many calories can I figure I burn per mile?
Just find a calorie burn calculator, select walking ~ 4mph and put in your values. It's approximate (They all are), but it should be close enough for your purposes.

comment Is it better to use whey protein pre or post workout?
While it's true that the body can't store "protein", that doesn't mean it is just flushed out. Protein is digested into amino acids, and any excess of those are converted to other usable molecules through deamination.

comment “Tricep Dumbbell Kickback” causing fatigue pain in back side of shoulder
@dsolimano is correct. Pain is usually used to denote something that is bad, and needs to be stopped and like right now. Fatigue just means that you are tired.

comment Actual amount of calories, I'm burning when riding bike
This is why you should follow up on things. The CPA that you reference gives 4 METS (METabolic EquivalentS) for cycling at less than 10 mph. If you plug your values into a METS to calories converter (Such as this one: ergo.human.cornell.edu/MetsCaloriesCalculator/… ), it gives a value of 270 calories for your weight/time/pace.

at ~ 15k (9 miles) per hour, I'd be more inclined to believe runastic's figures.

comment Do you lose stamina when you workout?
It would help if you could outline your current workouts, what you plan to do and what your goals are. If you want to do endurance/cross country, the last thing you want to do is start putting on unnecessary mass.
