I'm an engineering science student at the University of Toronto...I love programming, especially in more esoteric languages (my favorite of which is probably factor, but I use Python, Ruby, OCaml, Haskell, etc a fair amount too).

So...Emacs, weird (i.e. not Java/C++/Visual *) languages, Linux, OS X, are my things.

comment Developing slow transition in muscle-up
I think it was because the close pullup was developing the muscles I needed to get myself over the bar, which is probably the hardest part; prior to that all my exercises had been targeting larger muscle groups, and so didn't really get me anywhere.

comment Developing slow transition in muscle-up
This was exactly my experience with muscleups as well — went from not being able to do them at all, to being able to do a complete rep with no trouble

comment Reducing wrist pain/weakness during exercising
How long have you been doing heavier exercise? It could just be transitory pain that will pass when your wrists & forearms strengthen.

comment Back to the gym: should I bulk or cut first?
I'm not a professional, but I feel like that's somewhat of a false dichotomy: If you work out more, unless you start eating massively more than you used to, you're probably going to both gain muscle and lose fat; such is my experience, anyway.
