comment How to count laps while swimming?
Agree with @JohnP, though I wish I had done just a few practice races between major comps. I had done a lot of practice sets, but when it came to the annual comp, my inexperience with the full race distances made it hard to pick an appropriate pace.

@Quassnoi hopefully you don't share the lane with someone else who has the same idea ;)

comment Are there any disadvantages, besides discomfort, to letting water enter your nose?
Somehow I have the ability to push my upper lip against my nostrils for a sufficiently tight seal. So no need to exhale during backstroke push off the wall!

comment What physical endurance exercise can I fit into a 5-minute routine without any equipment?
Wow that's a quick warmup! I thought that you'd usually need at least 5 minutes for the warm up alone...

Doesn't tabata need a warmup?

comment Is weight loss possible without cardio?
"There's always swimming" - one of the things I love about swimming. Bad legs? Focus on pull. Bad arms? Focus on kick. I don't know of a sport that's more flexible than swimming.

comment Is rucking (running with weight in backpack) a bad idea?
Better yet, do your rucking on a soft sand beach if you're near one. Even less impact, and a greater muscular workout.

comment Breathing out during swimming freestyle
I agree that you breath as much as you need to, but in my swimming days I found that for proper sprints (e.g. 50 m), most would breath minimally - sometimes just 3 times during the race, or around 7 strokes a breath. It's predominantly anaerobic for those short distances, so breathing every stroke would be unhelpful.

comment Pistol Squat Progression?
This is basically an ad for a book, you haven't given any actual exercise recommendations for the progression.

comment Eating Only Cereals at Night?
I'd recommend dropping the sugar without replacing the sweetener.. losing fat while maintaining a sweet tooth makes the job a lot harder. A change of taste is very important - get into complex grains!

comment How do I track improvement in my box jump?
Yeah, plain vertical jumps might just be better. Do you still think it's good to do serious training via box jumping? You definitely can't push as hard doing it, and I think adding weights would be too dangerous. Also that looks like a good contraption, though I imagine with a bit of creativity you could do it for cheap (e.g. black rope, chalk on hands).
