comment Does massage really help recovering from muscle soreness
Thanks for the hint, this should apply to all kinds of soreness. I've updated the answer accordingly.

comment 2 workouts a day, supplementation
By "workouts" you mean some kind of hypertrophy or strength training I guess?

comment Does muscle strength (rather than muscle mass) also depend on food consumption?
Very good answer! Would be great if you could also elaborate on food affects the neural factors of strength.

comment Position of weight during weighted pull ups
"If you start adding external weight to other exercises, you want to try and keep the weight in line with the motion of the limbs." Could you elaborate a bit on that? Doesn't it rather apply to open kinetic chain exercises?

comment Why not just increase the number of sets?
... Or you use bodyweight exercises.

comment Why not just increase the number of sets?
No that's not what I meant :) I meant you should aim for sets of equal number of reps. Once you've reached 5 or so sets, you should increase intensity, meaning weights.

Consider buying a pair of gymnastic rings or a pull-up bar. There are a ton of bodyweight exercises that are easily scalable and as effective for building muscle mass as training with weights.
