comment How much should I spend for olympic weights?
Close bar supports can also be dangerous for those of us with a wide wingspan. I've pinched my hand against the bar supports on more than one occasion. When you are going heavy the last thing you want to worry about is whether the bar will lacerate your hand.

comment How much should I spend for olympic weights?
By Olympic plates do you mean a standard barbell weight set, or bumper plates for Olympic lifting? If you are doing any actual olympic lifting you should look into a platform (or making one yourself) and make sure your floor can handle the weight.

comment Can I do “Couch to 5k” twice per week instead of 3 times?
From my experience, C25K is a ridiculously slow program for running training for almost everyone. Its a good program for something like biggest loser, where an individual has quite literally never exercised in their life, but otherwise you should be able to push yourself much harder. As for lifting the same day, I would lift in the morning and run in the afternoon, this way you don't compromise your lifts and have enough time to recover for running.

comment Raw Diet for Growing Children
The person I was wondering about was specifically on an (uncooked) vegan raw food diet. I would think that limiting artificial intake is obviously healthy, but not really considered a raw food diet, at least not colloquially. I know people that exclude things like HFCS and WHite sugar from their diets but don't consider themselves as being on a raw diet

I was specifically wondering about Vegan raw food diets, I know raw food diets mean a lot of different things so I didn't restrict it a priori

comment When I wake up after a two hour nap I feel like I was hit by a truck.
Somewhat of an old wives tale, but I feel terrible after my nap if I sleep through the sunset. If its during the day I feel fine.
