comment How should I transition into minimalist running shoes?
Slowly and gradually.

comment Objective test for running shoe cushioning deterioration
Based on the way the tread has worn down, I'd say you're striking with the outside of the heel. There's nothing wrong with a slight heel-strike, but I just thought I'd mention it.

comment What's the most effective way to improve cardio endurance?
This isn't a workout for long-term endurance. It would help increase the speed you can hold for 2-3 minutes, but it is not ideal training for runs 10 times as long.

comment Is having a “normal” BMI a healthy target?
@LegoStormtroopr No, BMI assumes that weight is proportional to height squared, which is false. As a result, it's only valid within a fairly limited range of heights.

comment How can I get in shape in one month?
@Shauna True. But because cold turkey doesn't work for everyone, it's best to ALSO present people with the gradual change option.

comment Training for 1.5 mile run
@JohnP "Impressive" depends on context. 9:30 1.5-mile ability is more common than you might think among "athletic and active" but not specifically "training" 15-25-year-old males, especially if they play the kind of football we Americans call soccer. Among couch potatoes, it's very rare.

comment Yoga and Strength training
I've been doing this too and it seems to work well (2 yoga days, 3 strength days). I don't have any scientific evidence, though.

comment Scientific base for the construction of the army and special forces physical training plans
I know that at least one researcher connected with the US Olympic program has done some research with elite branches of the military, but based on this answer it sounds like the training is based more on simulation than anything else.

comment How can I get in shape in one month?
@DaveLiepmann I guess what I was getting at was that rather than cut all of those foods, it's easier for people to start by cutting pizza, donuts, and other junk food while still keeping some parts of their diet unchanged (coffee with breakfast, sandwich for lunch). I also think the problem with coffee is not so much the coffee itself as the things people put in their coffee.

comment is there any need to wear LANGOT(Loin Cloth) while doing gym workout
If this were about running, I'd say the support is helpful, but weightlifting doesn't really require special clothing.

Nothing wrong with a little coffee, a few pieces of fruit (sugar), or even a little bread. Emphasis on "little" and "few." Cutting junk food is hard enough for most people, no reason to make it an all-or-nothing endeavor that many will simply refuse to try.

One month isn't even enough time to go from "good" shape to "great." Work out consistently and you might have a chance at looking impressive two years from now.
