comment Redline heart rate running
Great answer. I knew a woman who could comfortably talk when her heartrate was 210. She had a small heart.

comment How to activate glutes on a pear?
When you are doing squats, how low are you going? You will get the best glute activation by going "Ass to grass" (ATG) - squatting all the way down. You may have to work on flexibility to do this, and make sure you use good form. I also recommend the Bulgarian split squat; that is also great at improving glute activation.

comment Work out 5 times a week, out of breath
Resting BPM isn't that useful for determining fitness level as different people have different sized hearts. I'm about your size, 20 pounds lighter, and a resting BPM of 60 would mean I'm quite out of shape.

comment Getting back into aerobic shape
I ski a bunch, and - unless I'm skiing bumps or other advanced stuff - I find that I'm much more likely to be strength limited in my legs than cardio limited.

comment how to lose bum fat
How do you know that all your fat is in your bum? It could be a postural issue.

comment Best way to achieve muscle activation in the lower abs?
I suggest a trip to a PT. You probably have activation and imbalance issues, and how to address them depends on your specific condition. If you aren't going to do that, I'd look at stretching exercises as well; strengthening may not be enough. The "hollow back" thing is known as hyperlordosis; if you search for that you will find more info.

comment Stiff calf after 20 minutes of cycling
The obvious answer is "stop with the heavyish cycling", and make it much lighter. That will give your body a better chance to adapter. I would also make sure you are using your bike's gearing so that you don't have to push too hard.

comment Shoulder / Arm pain during overhead lifts
Sounds like tendonitis to me. If it is, rest might help, but it might not. I would evaluate your form on the lifts that you are doing, especially WRT your shoulder position. Shoulders too far forward can lead to tendonitis. It would also be a good idea to visit a PT.

comment Does massage really help recovering from muscle soreness
For soreness that comes from cycling, the quality of your recovery nutrition can have a noticeable effect on soreness of the legs.

comment Overestimated calorie burn on an elliptical
I agree with Tony, though I think his estimate is a little high. 600 calories/hour is a fairly high rate of effort; I think most people would be closer to 400-500 cal/hour for a moderate effort.
