comment Lack of confidence starting new routines at gym
Good answer Alexandre. I think you've made some good points, especially with the bb.com/exercises link: great resource. I'd agree with Aizul and you that progression definitely is key. Bench and squat though, I think are movements it would do every beginner a lot of benefit to learn first, so long as they take the time to learn about them thoroughly. Hope to see more of your answers soon!

5 eggs a day is only like 350 calories. As Aizul says, figure out your daily caloric needs and make sure your protein intake is high enough to support hypertrophy. Also, +1 because I think this is a fair question, but I think others might like to know more about the rest of your diet/exercise, otherwise this is much too broad of a question.

You might be interested in Jesse Shand's story. He was completely immobile and weighed almost 700 lbs. He's now down to somewhere around 250 lbs. There are some details about his diet here.

comment Homemade Mass/Protein Blend
By the way, your question was closed because it appears to relate specifically to making homemade mass gainer. Since the topic of this Q&A site is fitness, nutritional questions are only allowed if they "relate to fitness". If you reword the question a bit I think you'll get some more "reopen" votes.

comment Homemade Mass/Protein Blend
Mass gainers are generally just sugar and/or starch powders with protein powder added. You might as well just have a milkshake from McDonald's after every workout (which is actually what I did when I started my first bulk). The carbohydrate-to-protein ratio is almost the same: milkshake vs mass gainer. Either way is really dirty. The favorite way to gain mass by bodybuilders is lots and lots of chicken and rice.

comment Crossfit pullups
@FrozenBlade The kip is the first thing gymnasts learn when working on the bars. How would this not be functional in gymnastics? In crossfit, explosiveness is important, and the hollow body transition has carryover into olympic lifts and such. Getting reps is the sport. In any case, the crossfit pull-up a dead horse that has been beaten for years. Personally, I don't do them, but I also don't go on the internet and snicker about people who do them behind their backs. A lot of these people have never been healthy, now they've found something that works for them. Support them.
