comment Compression Sleeves/Socks for Achilles Tendonitis
Kinesio tape is still somewhat controversial and unproven. It's certainly been a fad for a bit, but studies have failed to show help/improvement. But, if it works for you, great! :)

comment Beginner Runner. Cannot go any further
Slow down. You're likely running too fast. Other than that, there are a lot of other questions about building distance on here, such as: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/2629/…

comment High metabolism problems
Erik's answer is correct. A 5 lb gain in 1-2 days is all food/water, and not permanent. (And vice versa). True fat or muscle gain of 5 lbs will take much longer.

True, it's still around, but it's rubbish. :p

comment What does expiring Fish Oil capsule contents turn into and what is its effect on human psyche?
Completely off topic, not sure why you are having a conversation with yourself either?

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
Voted to close as being too broad, as you ask four very broad questions in the same paragraph. The only way to truly tell your "maximum" heart rate is through a progressive stress test.

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
I won't downvote it, but you should add that the "220-age" is one of the worst myths in exercise science.

comment Do dexamethasone iontophoreses weaken tendons?
And what did your doctor, you know the one that gave you the injections, tell you when you asked him about side effects and implications of taking the medication? You did ask, yes?

comment Why do artificial steroids build muscle while artificial leptin does nothing to prevent hunger?
While this is a great question, it's not really on topic unless you can relate it to your own fitness program. How would knowing this information help your own fitness goals? As it stands, it's interesting trivia.

comment I can't breathe through my nose, does this cause excessive sweating during exercise?
NO NO NO NO NO NO! Do NOT do this. If it is medically necessary, physicians can do facial procedures. "falling on your face" at a gentle jog can produce severe injuries, up to and including paralysis if you hit at an angle. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
HOW is it fitness related? How would knowing/seeing this information help your own fitness program? Your basic questions is "I need an app to do X". Just because X relates to a body part doesn't make it fitness oriented. Same if I asked "I want to plot my O2 sats on a graph. What app will do that?" Simply saying "While I do exercise" doesn't make it on topic.

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an application recommendation that isn't fitness related.

@EricKaufman - Fair enough. Just seemed odd. :)

comment How many Honey do I need for a UltraMarathon 80K and 4400meters D+?
@Artemination - This is just basic calorie math, and pretty much irrelevant to your personal situation. Some people can't absorb honey without a lot of water, people's calorie absorption rates vary wildly. The best way to find out is to use honey in practice and see how you feel.

@EricKaufman - Why on earth would you vote to close and then answer the question?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about sizing.

comment Does bicycling improve abs?
It's quite possibly the cycling, as you will use both abdominals and back muscles for stability. The harder your efforts, the more you will tend to tense those muscles to counterbalance.

comment Best time to workout without losing weight? (weird question, I know)
VTC as being both too broad and primarily personal opinion.

comment Upper groin hurts when riding stationary bike (Experienced cyclist)
I would suggest seeing a PT or sports doc. We can't diagnose a long time pain, unfortunately.

comment What types of bootcamps are best for endurance?
The only thing that will improve endurance is longer efforts at a sustained pace.
