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.

comment Aerobic vs anaerobic for better fat loss
I think your calorie burns are inflated. I doubt that you are burning more than 500 calories per hour playing soccer, and your running is also probably too much.

comment On smaller in between workout activies and the interpretation of resting phases
If your morning routine is focused on getting warmed up & loosened up, then great. If you are trying to work muscles that you just worked out hard the day before, then not-so-great.

comment Recommended max resistance on cycletrainers
JohnP is on the right track. I do 2-minute workouts at about 300 watts, which would very easily work on the trainers you are thinking about. I don't think you'd be able to put a lot more than that out because the connection of the roller to the tire will start slipping.

comment Relation of physical fitness and age
Joe Friel has done some good blog posts on this. The short answer is that High-intensity training seems to reduce the loss of fitness.

comment How much more cardio for fat loss?
Not only is 170 bpm likely too high, there is a lot of variability in maximum heart rate even for people at a specific age.
