I'm curious how you get a glass of lime juice out of a lemon? :p

comment How can you determine each running heart rate zone using data from your runs or from specifically designed workouts?
A 90 minute run is absolutely aerobic. A 400 meter run is aerobic. About the only runs that could possibly be classified as anaerobic in running are less than 200m and 20 seconds (ish) in length.

How did you obtain the value for your "good estimate of your real VO2max"?

comment What is a reasonable schedule for increasing flexibility?
@Paul - To some extent, yes. You may notice some initial quick gains, but it's just like working out. You don't go from benching 135 to 200 in 2-3 weeks either. Again, your mileage may vary, you may notice some significant gains earlier, it all depends on how your body responds. Just don't think that you can really jam it on the stretches and gain quicker, this really is something that you can do some serious damage if you overdo it.

comment Best timing and amount of protein intake for building mass
It's not irrelevant, although it may also be related to trained status: vuir.vu.edu.au/1436 ,ajpendo.physiology.org/content/281/2/E197?rss=1&ssourc , onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1469-7793.2001.00301.x/… , ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19478342 ,

comment Can the Vivosmart HR and a chest strap be used simultaneously with Garmin Connect software?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about pairing hardware.

comment How do I measure Vo2Max at home without specialized equipment?
@lecrank - I'm not suggesting that fitness increases (I state that in my last sentence). But, if you lose weight, your VO2Max will automatically increase, simply because it's a divisor in the equation. It's an indicator of potential, nothing more. If you want a better metric, vVO2Max (Velocity or speed at VO2 max) is much better.

comment What are some safe chest exercise for people with shoulder impingement?
Pushups to a wall is irrelevant to cable flies. Wall pushups are weaker because you aren't really fighting gravity at all. Cable flies would only be similar if you use very light weights.

comment Stretch marks from training
Stretch marks come from rapid growth to where the skin can not accommodate the growth (Skin is fairly elastic). You won't get stretch marks from "that one time you tried doing X". If you are getting lots of lines spreading rapidly, either you are growing very fast, or something else is going on.

comment What is the basic definition of cardiovascular exercise?
This is a good answer, but it's incomplete. The body also partially compensates by growing new blood vessels into working muscles (Neovascularization), as well as structural and physiological changes to be able to better utilize oxygen and fuel (such as mitochondrial increases) within muscle cells. If you could add something about those effects it would make this a stronger answer.

comment Recovery lifestyle such as training scheduling and dieting for gluten-intolerant endurance runner?
Hrm. Not sure where you got the other 7 questions, but I wouldn't include them as it for sure makes the question way too broad. Not sure that even the basic question isn't too broad, but it stands a much better chance of getting answered. Also, can you specify what you mean by recovery? Normal workout recovery, or recovery from an episode of some sort?

comment How to keep your feet from heating up during your run
What do you mean by "heating up"? Does your entire foot get warm? Lots of foot sweat? Or are just the soles of your feet getting hot?

comment Can one get ripped by just playing a/some sport(s)?
I would somewhat argue the opposite, but as you say, it depends on your definition of ripped. Bruce Lee was not massively muscular, but I would define him as ripped. Many modern athletes (including marathoners) I would consider ripped as well, just not hugely muscular at the same time.
