comment Exercises for a programmer sitting by the PC all day
@jontyc All yoga classes I've attended that aren't Baptiste Power style classes (or similar fast paced 'workout yoga' classes) have all emphasized performing nearly all poses with pulling the shoulders back and away from the ears, extending long through the neck, using a slight tuck of the chin, and opening up through the chest. What focus on shoulder alignment is missing?

comment Weight gaining diet for vegetarian
A huge +1 for legumes and avocados. As a vegetarian I depend on multiple servings a day of these to get my base level of protein each day and calories for each day.

comment Dumbbell weight training for distance running
I disagree with your disagreement because 1) the "cardio" in this type of workout is very anaerobic in nature and there are several benefits to anaerobic conditioning for 5k-10k runs 2) training the upper body increases posture and core stabilization - both important for running 3) you need something active for days where you give your legs a day off.
