Perhaps you can add some links/references to the studies? Google scholar is great.

comment Should I reboot Starting Strength program, to get better results?
Perhaps you can add some detail on your overall goals, e.g. if this is for the purpose of general well-being, there shouldn't be any time pressure. On the other hand, if you have a specific goal in time, it is a different matter.

See this question fitness.stackexchange.com/a/7127/3778 for the BMI of world class female swimmers. If you put together a similar table for the best triathletes, I will put it in a similar diagram as an answer.

comment Is 5 to 6 times workout per Week too much for the muscles to recover?
It sounds like the planned schedule will put too much stress on your body, there is no time for recovery. Will probably feel ok for 2-3 weeks but then the probability for overtraining or injuries will increase. Perhaps this QA can help you, see fitness.stackexchange.com/a/9950/3778
