I have a Bachelor's in Exercise Science with a concentration in Wellness and Cardiac Rehabilitation. I am currently earning my Masters in both Healthcare and Business Administration.

I spent all of my high school years involved in sports (tennis, track, cross country, swimming ) and my college years involved in fencing, swimming, and being a gym-rat. I spent my first year post-college in a competitive cycling shop. I then became part of a hospital system where I continue to run a Wellness Gym, perform various screenings, educate staff and the public on various health issues, and provide counselling for those that need help.

comment Which muscles you need to train additionally for climbing to avoid unbalances?
@Liam is correct. This is a duplicate. I'm glad my answer matches up with the accepted answer from the original post, though!

comment Working out consecutive days with longer resting periods
I don't know the answer to your question. However, unless you are having some sort of surgery that will keep you from using your limbs. Pack a thera-band/stretchy-band. The biggest problem for your muscles will be the inactivity. So even if you can use a stretch-band for some kind of work out it will be beneficial. Plus, they don't take up a lot of space.

comment Feet turned out while running
@user194276 There is no need to be snarky when the community is trying to help. He is absolutely correct. If slamming your face into a wall hurts, and you want the pain to stop, you should resist the urge to slam your face into a wall. That being said, the doctors are not useless. Some people are born with physical limitations due to bio mechanics. The unfortunate part of this post is the ambiguity of the question due to a lack of anatomical knowledge. This is not your fault but maybe en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatomical_terms_of_location will help you better describe your situation for us

comment Is a high heart rate a sign to be concerned of?
I have mixed feelings about this being off topic. It provides the basis for a solid question (What are resting heart rates for athletic/sedentary people?). Which is why I answered the way I did. I understand that this isn't the place for general health questions, though.

comment Will I improve by climbing 10 flights of stairs every day?
Yes. Well, you're supposed to. Your body will adapt to those 10 flights ad eventually (length of time different for everyone) it will be easy.

comment How to calculate body fat using calipers?
That first link is money from an Exercise Scientist's point of view. If you have the data for the 7-fold Jackson/Pollock, that would be best. You have enough data for the Durmin/Womersley test though (I don't know a lot about this one).

comment Dull pain/soreness in upper back muscles behind right shoulder bone after pushups
Depending on what you mean by, "behind" it could be your Rhomboids or Levator Sacpulae.

comment My ribs are aching after a pushup. What's wrong?
If you feel something is always medically wrong, always consult a physician. Since your ribs cover such a large span, there is no way to tell what it might be without being more specific. Your: Seratus Anterior, Intercostal, Diaphragm; Pectoral; Latissimus; etc. muscles all have rib involvement. If you are a little more specific, we can try to narrow it down for you; but, (even though it doesn't sound like much of anything) I would still consult your physician.
