comment Does muscle strength reduce the risk and problems of injury?
Can you elaborate on the knee injury and what you did for treatment recovery? There is a world of difference between a scraped knee, a dislocated patella, meniscus tear, etc etc.

comment How would I go about jogging part of my commute back to home?
Start with the jog. If you make it cool, if not just walk part of it. Look at Galloway run/walk for examples.

comment Replacement for chicken breast for high protein?
Eggs have 6g of protein, so to get the equivalent of 1 breast, you need to eat ~ 5-6 eggs. And if (as you suggest) you only eat the whites, you get 3.6g protein per, so you'll need to eat the whole dozen to get the same protein.

More fruits and vegetables. You should be able to get all nutrients from a balanced diet.

Heart rate is so variable, I personally never use it as a training metric.

The other thing you can do is mix your grips. Do 5 with one hand in, the other out. Then switch and do 5 more.

comment Replacement for chicken breast for high protein?
I don't necessarily disagree with whey. I just think it's a poor alternative when you have to buy pallets of the stuff to get it cheaper than you can an actual food, and when the OP is looking for cheaper, I'm not sure how spending large $$ on bulk whey is a great solution. Just because you've bought the health store supplement party line doesn't mean it's a great solution.

2 lbs = 36 (18g protein per) servings = 684g protein. At $29/tub (Gotta include that shipping), that's the same as 8.28 lbs of chicken breasts, which is 3755g, or 37.5 servings. That's 937 grams protein. You're at least getting closer with your artificial replacement. (Assuming you can get it for the discount price listed). I know, maths is hard.

Hrm. 2 lbs whey protein isolate = 25 servings = 700g protein = $55 US (typical price). 15.7 lbs chicken breasts = 7121 grams = 71 servings (100gm) = 1775g protein = $55 (Typical US grocery store price of 3.50/lb). Tell us again how whey isolate would be cheaper than chicken breasts?

comment Tabata calorie burn with 4 minute excersie
The additional 150 calories over 12 hours is a bit of an overestimation. IIRC when I looked at it, it was in the order of 25-50 calories over 24ish hours.

comment Road Cycling on a Gravel Path
Impossible to really tell. If you increase your effort, it won't take anything away from speed. Other than that, the condition of the road will dictate how much speed will change. Use the same effort and see what happens to your speed, that will tell you.

@user10019 - Milk calories are almost all sugar based. Overloading on calcium can cause liver problems and kidney stones. (1 gal milk has 4x recommended daily calcium). It's high in saturated fat/cholesterol, as well as sodium. It's only "designed" to be done for a month or two at the most, so yes, fad/gimmick. Plus, you can't gain muscle at that rate, so the majority of the "bulking" will be fat and water gain.

@claws - You know that FUPA is a made up derogatory term, right? And no, if you need fat in your diet to transport the vitamins. Your body won't "pull fat" into the intestine to transport them. And I hate to tell you, but if the "only way" to get all your vitamins in a day is by supplements, your diet sucks.
