comment When does maximum muscle repair and growth take place after a strength workout?
@BackInShapeBuddy +1, you nail it! That is what I want to know, but I can't ask it directly, the question would be closed by moderators because it is about nutrition... Otherwise my real question would have been "I take between two and four days rest between strength workouts, and I don't want to maintain a high protein intake during all that time, otherwise I will become merely fat. When should I rise my protein intake in order to maximize its efficiency?" - However, the q/a you suggest still doesn't have the answer. I want to know in which of my 2~4 days rest should I eat more protein.

Thanks for the link! What would be your recommendation for me then? Should I have from now on 3 rest days between workouts instead of 2, or should I introduce one rest week every two months? Would it be effective to cycle the rest week for each exercise, so that I don't stop going to the gym? (i.e. I avoid squats on week 1 while performing the other exercises, then on week 2 I do squats again but avoid doing pushups and so on - sorry about my english).

Could you please elaborate a little bit more about good form & stairs? If you feel like writing a whole answer, I may post it as a question.

comment How can I ensure I am working the muscles in each leg equally?
I don't know what was wrong with my knees but short ago BW squats were painful, and the allegedly easier versions (Jackknife, pole-supported and other youtube crap) made my knees creak. Leg presses did the trick for me in the course of a single month, and now I am doing BW full squats.

comment Do Inverted Rows prepare you for Pull Ups?
The load can be easily changed (at least for inverted rows) by simply setting a higher/lower position of the Smith machine bar. In fact I started with a nearly vertical body position (Grandma Inverted Rows, so to say) and have progressed by lowering the bar twice, so that now my body is about 45 degrees above horizontal.

Then, why not the pulldown machine? I know Nautilus-alike machines are nowadays regarded as medieval instruments from an obscure past, but the bar in a pulldown machine hangs from a cable, and so the movement pattern is not fixed, there is room for stabilisation muscles, individual movement pattern differences and so on.
