comment Is 45 minutes after working out already too late for restocking on protein and carbs?
Where is the threshold? If two hours is still fine, how long is not fine anymore? Or doesn't it matter?

comment I am not gaining body weight and I am now 23 years old
What does your diet consist of? What exercise do you do at the gym?

comment Will climbing (bouldering) with the right amount of calories build muscle?
I am not really qualified to answer this so I'll make a comment instead. In my understanding, in order to gain serious muscle bulk it is necessary to lift heavy weight with low rep. If you are strong enough to easily lift your own weight then boldering for two hours is almost akin to a cardiovascular excercise. I have peers who boulder and they are almost always lean. You need to do strength training to gain muscle.

comment What exercises can improve my squat depth? I'm limited by how far my knees go over my toes
How is your form for squatting in general? Are your feet flat on the ground or do you tend to lean forward with the weight on the front of your feet?

comment Train full body in two days for four days straight
@RaduGheorghiu Are you using a calorie tracker like myfitnesspal/fitbit where you log your intake every day? I find it a lot easier to track my intake that way or it's easier to over eat. I've been eating a 750 calorie deficit, working out 3x a week and have lost about a kg a week. You should be able to eat a 1000 calorie dificit at 100+ kg quite easily since it takes a lot to maintain that weight in the first place.

comment Train full body in two days for four days straight
If you really want to lose weight, I would start by eating less. It's much easier to eat a 500 calorie deficit (to lose ~1 lb/week) than it is to go on a 500 calorie workout every day (for me, about 5km of jogging). Eating less is by far a more effective way to lose weight.

comment Train full body in two days for four days straight
"hit all the muschles twice in these 4 days" There's a reason why most training schedules for beginners recommend a rest day between workouts. You need to rest your muscles to let them recover. I'm not sure if working out for four days straight is a good idea for a beginner.

comment How can you gain weight quickly?
Surely some of it is fat. If they're weight training on a calorie surplus, there is going to be some fat gain. It's not 15, it's 25 kg which is insane nonetheless. Either they're gaining fat (1kg a week is possible) or they're on something.

comment How should I structure my runs if I live in a particularly hilly area?
Great, I didn't know that. I'll definitely continue with those too.

comment How should I structure my runs if I live in a particularly hilly area?
Thanks for your response. I have just come off of 6 months of strength training (squat, deadlift, benchpress) and found that my quads were fine with running uphill thanks to that. I'd like to go back to doing strength training but will have to figure out a way to fit it into my routine with the running. Running fast downhill is something i've had to be careful of. Initially I went too slow, and then too fast, and now I think I've got the pace more or less okay. Earlier this week I did 1.5km in 11 min which was a personal best for me (<8min/km) especially since it was quite hilly.

I also used to use "powerlifting" but when I say that people think I'm competing.

@DaveLiepmann thanks. I had "lifting heavy" in originally but the tag wiki says weightlifting is "Resistance training with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells and other weights. Questions involving how to lift and maximizing lifting performance. Includes powerlifting, bodybuilding and Olympic lifting." so I thought I could use weightlifting as an all-encompassing term.
