What are your training goals?

comment Unable to grasp bar doing a back barbell squat
I agree with dave. Those wrists are not in the correct position. This video explains it the best.

comment Arm cross stretching behind the back, how to improve it?
Are you not able to bring your left arm into a fully vertical position? It looks like your right arm gets there, but your left arm does not.

comment How to train finger extension?
Here's the quote, in the context of discussing tennis elbow: "Overuse of the less well-trained extensor muscles in climbing results because optimal power of the flexors is obtained only when the wrist is extended." That's the only discussion of under-trained upper arm extensors in the article. They devote an entire section to pathology of the hand and fingers but don't mention anything about training finger extension for injury prevention.

comment Health benefits of numerous mini-exercise sessions per day
They'll burn more calories than not doing them. However, unless you tax your body in some way, you're not asking it to adapt. While the exact number doesn't matter, how "mini" the exercise set is relative to your capacity does matter.

Why only 10 pushups? Why not go the threshold of becoming difficult, or something like that?

comment How to track Fitness effort manually?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about product recommendation.

comment More fatigue, DOMS, and pain than improvement in exercise
One error that jumps out to me is that you're waiting for DOMS to go away before trying again. Mark Rippetoe says, "Waiting until soreness subsides before doing the next workout is a good way to guarantee that soreness will be produced every time, since you'll never get adapted to sufficient workload frequency to stop getting sore".

comment How can I increase bicep width?
You mention, "I haven't seen much of an improvement", but how much improvement has there been? (Just to get a sense of how your current program is working or not working.)

comment How can I increase bicep width?
Why do you believe it is the bicep and not the brachialis that would give the biggest improvement in arm width?

comment How can I increase bicep width?
Do you only care about bicep width? Or is it arm width (which would involve the brachialis) that you're really interested in?

I think he's just making things up to sound more authoritative.

comment Starting Strengh - how to replace power cleans when already doing chins
"after failing to do power cleans numerous times". Everyone fails to do power cleans numerous times! Don't give up on them.

comment Pull weights while running
I think I'd find weights in sand awkward because of non-uniform resistance (sometimes the weights will dig in, sometimes they'll skip across the surface, etc.). But other than that, I can't think of anything negative.

comment How do I know if I'm training too hard?
@Hituptony True, you don't have to snack constantly, and I didn't say it was necessary. There is such a thing as trading fat for muscle. It happens when on a recomposition plan (see this answer). You say it yourself when you say "lean mass gaining and fat loss"... lulz

comment How do I know if I'm training too hard?
Soreness is not a good measure for recovery. It is possible for a person to still make progress and lift safely through full range of motion while experiencing DOMS. DOMS is not a signal of over training.

comment How do I know if I'm training too hard?
@ChrisKempen Re: suggestions, I can't tell for sure, but three meals + one snack seems on the low side of things. Eat more, or snack more constantly. Monitor body fat% so you don't get too worried when you don't see your weight going down (you might be trading fat for muscle). Tiredness is definitely a side effect of training (whether you call it harsh training or not is a matter of opinion). I wouldn't treat tiredness on its own as a signal of overtraining, though. Overtraining usually shows up with multiple symptoms (insomnia, irritability, poor workout performance, etc.).
