comment What effect does restricted oxygen in cardio have on muscle damage & repair?
a - This is a comment not an answer. b - Lactic acid is a fuel, why would you want to resist it?

comment What effect does restricted oxygen in cardio have on muscle damage & repair?
If the bike sprint is the same intensity, it is anaerobic as well. Or, (and much more likely) your swim is actually aerobic, not anaerobic. Oxygen deficit does not mean anaerobic.

Point to the cognitive (thinking) part of a muscle that can get confused. No? There's your answer.

What did your own GP say when you asked him?

So your solution to an OT question is to give him a generic calculator that he has to play guessing games with to get to work?

comment Whey protein intake and side effects
Your questions are straight nutrition, which is off topic for the site.

And there are a couple class action lawsuits on the minimalist footwear, and studies are showing increased injury rates with chi/pose/forefoot running fads.

If you read my entire comment, I agreed with you but can't retract until edited.

comment FitBit and kayaking
The device is tuned to detect acceleration and stop motion. Hence how a bumpy road will register and carpet may not. Also, the website states that it can be used for other activities, it just may lose some accuracy. I do see your point, but the vote can't be retracted unless you edit. :p

@LarissaGodzilla - "Too broad" and/or "opinion based". IIRC, I think this was already closed and reopened.

comment FitBit and kayaking
How were you "kayaking" for that 10k? Were you actually floating down a river? Where was the fitbit located?

comment FitBit and kayaking
You reference it being "smaller" than a step. My wife is 4'9", her steps are about the same size as I would make for a kayak sweep. Also, it's based on accelerometers, so even as the page you reference notes, riding on a bumpy road could be enough to trigger it, or walking on a plush carpet to not register.

comment Initial weight loss, followed by 2 weeks of inactivity
+1 for two good points on hydration and fat vs. muscle weight. Additionally, after hard workouts, the body may retain fluids for a few days during repair.

comment Initial weight loss, followed by 2 weeks of inactivity
@Affe - Just to clarify, 1000 calories a day of cardio is not an "insane" level. I am far from fanatic, but I do workouts 4-5 times a week that easily get into the 2-3000 range. Competitive swimmers often eat in the 8-10,000 calorie range just to maintain weight. Competitive cyclists, triathletes, many many endurance athletes at all levels have regular workout days that exceed 1000 calories.

comment Why is the weight not falling off me?
Also, -1 for too many sweeping generalizations and repetition of debunked myths (Such as "famine mode"). And, citing a wikipedia page (Already a somewhat dubious source) that glaringly states "This page has issues" probably isn't the best place to start.

comment What lifts shouldn't I do with a posterior labrum tear?
@GeoreShg - So...the entire sarcasm of the post goes over your head and you focus on a misworded title? Your question is off topic and asking for medical advice. Offering a bounty on a bad question won't help anything.

comment How to identify what type of body is yours
Proteins are better for one "body type" than another? After 30 years in exercise science and 40 in athletics, I have heard something new. Congratulations.

comment Is stretching more difficult once the muscle mass is bigger?
@Kneel-Before-ZOD - We are :) I was just talking about the "bulkier you are" perception. I believe Ron Coleman used to do the splits on stage as part of his posing routine.
