Graduated from the University of Illinois in December of 2012, went on to work as an Embedded Software Engineer(doing Android Kernel dev) at Qualcomm for a year before realizing that big company life wasn't for me. Now doing some freelance Android work, working on some side projects, and looking for smaller companies that are crushing it.

Is your goal of cardio for cardios sake or with fat loss in mind?

comment What can cause an unexpected weight gain with constant workouts and calorie control?
Are you weighing out your food? Just because you are using a tracker, doesn't mean that the input to the tracker is actually accurate.

comment Optimum amount of aerobic exercise to induce Angiogenesis for bodybuilding purposes?
I guess optimum was a little misleading or wording, I guess I was looking for more of a rough estimate of order of magnitude. Essentially, all sources I found said something like "in response to aerobic exercise", but no note of duration or intensity of aerobic exercise.

comment When I bench press, why do my hips sometimes cramp up?
@GetFitChimp, care to expand upon why you are trying to get Kate to eliminate her back arch? IMO(as well as almost every power lifter), you want to arch as much as possible during a bench. More arch -> shorter ROM -> more pounds on your press.

comment Protein supplementation when doing conditioning on caloric deficit
I'm a little confused by what exactly you are hoping to accomplish, as well as what drawbacks you are afraid of. If you feel that you aren't eating enough protein, by all means add it in, and if you have some adverse reactions to it(gas, bloat, etct) just take it out.

comment How can I measure my fitness at home without any instruments?
Well fitness is a task-specific measurement, ie powerlifters, marathon runners, and 90 year old women will all have a different scale as to what to judge their level of fitness against. Powerlifters will judge their level of fitness on how well they can squat, bench and deadlift with minimal to no pain, marathons will judge their fitness on how quickly they can run ~26 miles with minimal pain, and old ladies will measure their level of fitness on their ability to get around by themselves. So my question to you is, what sports do you compete in?

@DaveLiepmann, thanks for the link. Tried searching for similar posts, but I guess my keywords were subpar.

comment Adjusting volume and intensity on non “zoned-in” days
@George, what's with the comment? I was just stating that it was a subject that probably wouldn't be any any scientific studies to back up the claims, but that I would welcome any that were found.

@Kate, yeah I would love responses to either, I guess I have always just thought of it as something that was out of my control.
