comment Wide grip pull-ups vs “normal” pull-ups
Yeah, the forum was closed a while ago and I thought the posts were lost. I have TXT versions of my own big posts but didn't have time to transform them into posts here (by the way, can you tell me how to do that?). Fortunately the Wayback Machine crawled them, this one in particular is available here.

comment effect of masturbation on gym workout to gain muscle
@masonk: thanks for bringing it up. I'll edit the original post to draw attention to the possible inadequacy of these links; readers can then judge for themselves if they have access to the papers. Sadly, I don't have the time to go read these links carefully in the near future.

comment Why are kettlebells so expensive?
In my opinion it's the "trendy factor" that jontyc mentioned. But I agree 100% with informaficker: this question is very speculative and the subject hasn't been studied rigorously.

comment What exercises would make up the minimum, complete, general fitness workout?
I just understood why my answer is such a poor fit to the question: the title only mentions strength, but the OP now mentions strength, conditioning and mobility. Perhaps you should change the title accordingly?

@VPeric yes, those are the ones I was talking about. The 3rd edition of SS is the same as PP, and they mention that other one taught by Rip at the gym too.

@Dave, according to startingstrength.wikia.com there is a 3rd edition of SS which I didn't know about. The 2nd edition has no pull-ups, but the 3rd appears to have them.

comment How many sets and reps should I do as a beginner?
That's an interesting point. I don't have time to read the ACSM paper thoroughly, and I've read it properly something like 2 years ago. I'll have another look at it.

The novice effect exists, no doubt -- but the question is (or at least that's how I interpreted it), what's the best range for a beginner. And there is very strong evidence that it's 8-12; other ranges yield gains as well, though not as much as 8-12.
