comment Combining different muscle groups
Were you doing dips after bench press or something like that? Then it's not strange that you're managing to do fewer reps, and not necessarily bad. If you're doing bench press on your non-triceps day, you're not really doing clean splits since you're doing triceps multiple times per week, so it's more like whole-body workouts.

comment workout program for weight increase
When you do splits and have chest days and such, the volume is typically much higher, doing about 9 sets for every muscle group involved, and I don't think doing chest day, back day and leg day on the same day would work, that would probably be too much to recover from.

comment Crossfit pullups
The reason I heard is that they do them that way because it's too difficult to make sure pullup are done without momentum in competitions. So instead they allowed people to get up anyway they like, and the easiest way is to kip.

Yes that would be one type of vegetarianism and not veganism according to official definitions.

Yes, what is your current definition of veganism in your mind?

comment What is this seemingly random value when working out calories burned?
Okay, didn't know that, but that should depend on what you combust with the oxygen, right? Fat, protein and carbs should give a different amount of calories if you burn it with 1 ml of oxygen so to speak. Also, 210 = 200 for 1 significant figure.

comment What is this seemingly random value when working out calories burned?
Okay so 3.5 * nrMets * nrMinutes * nrKgs should be the number of ml of oxygen that you consume for a certain weight in a certain number of minutes, assuming there is a linear factor between calories consumed and milliliters of oxygen consumer, this code seems to assume that this factor is 200. Not sure if 200 is a good number, but it seems reasonable to me that the number isn't an exact one by nature, because biology. It is probably chosen to be easy to calculate with.

What's metabolicRate in the second line? Where do you get it from? A MET is a unit for intensity, where one MET is defined as 3.5ml of oxygen per kg and per minute, so the 3.5 is just a number to get a good range of MET numbers, 1 MET is what you use for sitting.

comment Testosterone causes anabolism?
No, temporary increases in testosterone does not cause long term anabolism. Both fat and protein is constantly both stored and lost, at every second. What matters is your total balance over a period of time.

No, calorie surplus alone, with 0 exercise, causes muscle gain in most people. Just like calorie deficit causes muscle break down in most people. It all depends on your current muscle mass levels of course. If a body builder would stop working out, stop taking T supplements and just eat a lot of food, the total muscle balance will most likely be negative.

It's false. T levels fluctuate for many different reasons. Also, your first statement is technically incorrect. Most people who add weight by adding calories add muscle mass (and fat mass.)
