comment Effect of muscular excercise on height growth
@alec - Actually, there are quite a few things that can stunt growth. High cortisol due to prolonged stress, thyroid malfunctions, breaking the bone through the growth plate, nutrition (as you noted), a few other things as well.

comment I am to short I want to grow (increase my height) and weight
Other than possible death? It's a nightshade used for heart ailments in ayurvedic medicine. Height is not changeable. Whatever height you end up at, that's it. It's very possible at 18 you haven't finished growing, but you can't naturally increase your height in any way.

comment How hard I should push myself?
Push yourself until you collapse. Or don't. Nobody can tell you how hard you should push yourself. Hence the phrase "Push yourself".

comment Muscles targeted by swimming?
Pretty much all of the major muscles. Can you be a bit more specific, as this is a broad approach?

comment Is it possible for muscles to shrink after a workout?
Completely wrong. If you do not stimulate muscle, it will indeed shrink and/or atrophy depending on level of stimulus loss.

comment BMR VS muscle weight?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about formula differences, not fitness.

comment BMR VS muscle weight?
This isn't really related to fitness, it's more a general formula theory question, and all you really have to do is plug numbers into either Katch-McCardle or the Cunningham equations.

comment Is 2-hour cardio healthy?
I'm in agreement with your answer. Running that big a deficit is just asking for trouble, especially the more weight you lose. The 2-3 hours of cardio is no problem, there are many athletes that do that regularly, but you need to eat to sustain it.

comment Is 2-hour cardio healthy?
3500 calories = 1 lb is not really accurate: health.stackexchange.com/questions/797/… - I used to defend that quite vigorously, but have recently found that it isn't as accurate as it is proclaimed to be.

I know this is increase and that is decrease, but the basic question of altering sweat rate is answered there.

comment Is there any truth to the maxim “cardio kills gains”?
@BenLim - I don't. When I want to figure calories, I generally pick 2 or 3 of the different formulas available and average the results. Mostly for personal I use the mirror and a scale as the gauge.

So you are taking a cohort that at the most will do low weight high rep activities along with their 50-80 mpw running and applying that to someone that lifts 5 days a week?

Can you elaborate, perhaps cite some references other than bro-science knowledge?

@BenLim - Unless you are obese, it is extremely hard to both gain mass and lose weight.
