comment Is There a Fitness / Activity Tracker which Measures Heart Beat Rate?
@rrirower Well, thanks to the upcoming wearable tech, they can be worn all day. People want a more accurate representation of activity level than a pedometer can provide. They want to be able to track their heart rate all day. That is why these products exist. And no, it's not just my opinion. I imagine most everyone would agree it's more comfortable to wear a fitness band all day than a chest strap, and it's more convenient for a number of reasons. The point can be argued, but what's that got to do with the poster's question?

@rrirower Because if you want to wear it all day, it's not comfortable, difficult to take off and put on, and looks strange under a dress shirt.

comment How long does it take to heal shin splint?
When I first started running, I would get the same symptoms. I was in good cardio shape, but my legs weren't used to the impact. I was also using poor running form. I tried a few times to start running again after thinking I had healed, but the symptoms returned. Here's what you should do: study proper running form so as to reduce the amount of impact on your bones, allow yourself time to heal (maybe 2-3 weeks before you try ANY running), then start very, very gradually to get up to your 6-7km runs. Maybe run 1-2km twice the first week, 2-3km twice the second week, etc.

I think your question is excellent. I would vote it up twice if I could. Very detailed, very well-written, and very thought-out. This is an exemplary question.

comment Lower back pain during heavy squats
@VictorySaber, you might want to check out these two videos for squat form reference: [1], [2]. If you have a hard time with these positions, work on mobility.
