comment Gaining muscle with slim body type
@what, I notice you didn't pick out the "eating to calorie surplus" as an important part, but it is a very important part of this answer.

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.

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?
