comment What to drink during a triathlon
+1 on this. You could pick something that would work really well, or you could pick something that would give you gastrointestinal problems.
comment Please advise me on reducing my overweight, I am quite depressed and lost
Great answer. The weightlifting is especially important; the number of people who lose weight with weightlifting + aerobic exercise is significantly higher than those who just do aerobic exercise. I would also explore your diet; reducing refined sugar and simple starches (flour/rice/etc.) can help as well.
comment Training Program to become stronger alpine Skier?
I think it's unfair to the author to list the exercises he recommends, and I don't think it would work that well; the point of the evaluations is that they are used to decide which exercises are important.
comment Should cyclists use weight training to strengthen underutilized muscles?
If you cycle a lot for significant periods of time, you can lose a lot of upper-body mass. If you are trying to be a competitive cyclist, this can be a good thing. If you are worried about your long-term health, it can leave you weak and prone to osteoporosis. I lift fairly seriously a few times a week to counter the effect of my cycling. I agree with Dan that you should do a general weight-lifting approach, not try to focus on a specific muscles. I have found that deadlift is a good exercise to counter some of the back issues I was having...

comment Is it normal to have heart palpitations in colder weather?
Please speak to a physician about this.
comment Can I get sugar and electrolytes from natural sources, as opposed to goo, during a race?
Sorry. Issues range from stomach pain/cramps to diarrhea.
