comment Why is my outer hip tight when doing some inner thigh stretches?
If I do the stretch at the same angle as the guy in the video, it doesn't do much for me. But if I get into his position then bring my thigh towards my torso (still keeping the leg straight and close to the floor) so my leg is at least perpendicular to the rest of my body, omfg. I -think- it stretches the same spot as when I do bound angle pose. Am still stretching the gluteus medius in the modified position, or is it a different muscle?

comment Strengthening and healing the psoas (leg-lifting) muscle
This is definitely a challenge for the psoas muscle! The one problem I see with using it as your primary rehab strengthening exercise is that it only strengthens the psoas at one joint angle, which isn't that practical considering the range of joint angles you hit during sports.

comment How to sculpt masculine VS feminine chest?
It could also have something to do with how good your plastic surgeon is. I don't know the story on these particular women (maybe Silvana Salvati just got lucky with her genes), but it's nearly impossible for someone to cut their body fat so low that you can see their 6-pack and still maintain full, voluptuous breasts. Breast augmentation is common enough among body builders that bodybuilding.com has an FAQ article on it.

comment Effect of squat and dead lift on long distance running
I think your answer is really good, but can you explain this sentence a little more: "Doing even more aerobic exercises like static squats will pay higher event specific dividends for endurance athlete." I've always thought of isometric exercise as anaerobic, and static squats only strengthen the muscles at one specific joint angle, so to me they don't seem applicable to running.

comment What are the nutritional benefits of saturated fats?
@anothem I agree with the religious war statement. The research on this stuff still equivocal. As Michael Pollan wrote, nutrition science is "in the same place that surgery was in, oh, the 1600s." Let it stand that I still disagree with the statement that polyunsaturated aren't essential in the diet, but I think I'm done beating the dead horse here.
