comment Next to no glute / hamstring activation when squatting
Are you squatting high bar or low bar? Low bar will have a lot more glute/ham activation.

comment What are some correct ways to get up to a standing position from lying down?
Babies are also proportioned really differently from adults. For instance, they have huge heads.

comment Bench Pressing vs. Push-ups
I think a well rounded workout with squats, deadlifts, overhead pressing, benching, chins and dips will build a strong well proportioned body. Pushups are just not easily incrementally loadable.

comment effect of masturbation on gym workout to gain muscle
Then integrating the infinitesimal gains over time will yield a much greater muscle mass for the male. The conclusion of this study is just bogus.

comment effect of masturbation on gym workout to gain muscle
Then why do men who work out a lot (or a little) tend to have greater muscle mass than women? According to this study, men and women should be able to gain muscle at the same rate, which is just silly. It might be true that the infinitesimal initial gains due to going from sedentary to active are the same in both populations (as this study maybe shows), but that tells you nothing about how those gains are going to change over time. Maybe the males (due to higher T) will continue gaining at the same rate for months, while the females will start to taper off after a few weeks.

comment Lost 30 lbs in 6-8 months. But need to bring down fat percentage
What are your squat, bench, deadlift and overhead press numbers? If you are a male, I can assure you that 154 at your height is a lot smaller than the cutoff for being fit. This is the middle of what the BMI calls normal weight, but 180 at 10% body fat should be acheivable naturally. Check out naturalphysiques.com/28/fat-free-mass-index-ffmi

comment Low dose multivitamin?
I work out, and I eat plenty of fruits and veggies, of a rather varied sort. Even so, when I actually enter all of the food I eat in a given day into a nutrient calculator, I end up being deficient in several vitamins. For example, zinc is one vitamin that I rarely get enough of. I could just add a cup of pumpkin seeds to my diet every day, but when I do this kind of adjustment for every vitamin I need, I just end up with too large a volume of food for me to eat in one day. Maybe I need to expand my stomach.
