comment Need to gain strength to gain muscle?
As I mentioned in the original answer, your strength gains slow down a lot after you pass your 'noob gains'. You can't rapidly increase strength forever. The stronger you get, the harder you have to work for each incremental gain. However, my answer still stands - you need to change your workout. Your muscles have likely adapted to your current routine and you'd gain muscle more efficiently if you change it up every couple of months.

comment Need to gain strength to gain muscle?
A key word in that sentence is 'efficiently'. If you want to gain muscle efficiently, you need to constantly be challenging your muscles. So to answer your question more definitively - Yes, you do need to change your workout.

comment Carbohydrates prior to running
@md5sum - Do you experience hitting a wall if you don't eat carbs before cardio? One reason I imagine many people stock up on carbs is because they may not be on a ketogenic diet. Therefore, their body is using glycogen as fuel as opposed to ketone bodies. It may be the case that even while on a ketogenic diet, glycogen stores may be necessary for peak athletic performance. I know that bodybuilders who are trying to gain strength while on a Ketogenic diet have 1 day per week where they "refeed" or "carb up" in order to replenish their glycogen stores in order to be able to lift heavy.

@Ivo - Pretty much everything in this world has its limits. Carbs are converted to glucose. Excess glucose is stored as fat.
