comment When I bench press, why do my hips sometimes cramp up?
This is re-assuring. It is just very distracting, and happens at the heavy weights where I need the most focus. It doesn't feel like an injury, and isn't affecting deadlifts or squats.

Feet on the bench is not allowed during competition, so I'm not going to switch to that. If my issue may be related to IT band tightness, I could stretch that. Even if it's not that, I won't make anything worse. I will post a form video soon to get a better check that I'm not doing something wrong form-wise.

I'm using the back arch because it believed it to be standard powerlifting form. I'm trying to do exactly what Mark Rippetoe directs us to do in this video: youtube.com/watch?v=lBNeeeTId1M

comment I want to know the exact formula to calculate metabolic age
I think "How do i get the average bmr of people in the chronological age group?" is off-topic for this stackexchange. Perhaps at biology.stackexchange you could get a better answer.

Healthy in what sense? Are you asking if it improves your recovery?

comment How to interpret running metrics
I know this is kind of what you are asking, but is there a certain metric that stands out to you as abnormal? Or a metric that you'd like to improve?

comment Can I be serious about getting into great shape if I have an office job?
If you identify as "a web developer who works 40-50 hours per week", then you'll have trouble reaching your goals. If you identify as "an athlete", or "a bodybuilder", then you'll get there. You'll find a more flexible job, you'll make the time after work, or other changes that will keep you on track towards your goals.

comment Can I be serious about getting into great shape if I have an office job?
Are you asking us what you'll be able to accomplish? Or how hard you'll be able to push yourself? I can't really tell what your question is. We can't tell you if you should abandon a goal of yours. I think if you pick a goal, you can get there, especially if you have some control over the constraints that may get in the way (your job, hours, etc.) You're 21. You aren't locked into a 50 hour a week web developer job for life.

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
How has your bodyweight been trending during this plateau? Have you tried just eating more? Stronglifts is a strength program, and reduction in body fat percentage may or may not happen, depending on what your body needs in order to get stronger. You're also not giving your body the rest that stronglifts prescribes. If you go big on M/W/F, no need for shoulder work on T/Th.

comment What are the endocrinological benefits of holistic rest in bodybuilding?
I think everything you've said is correct, but would you be able to focus your answer more towards the question: "what are the endocrinological benefits of holistic rest in bodybuilding."?
