comment Is There a Fitness / Activity Tracker which Measures Heart Beat Rate?
Heart rate monitors aren't typically worn all day. And, besides, isn't that just your opinion?

And why is it inconvenient to "strap a heart rate monitor around" your chest?

comment Tight calves and tingling toes when running
@Tracyat2bactive The location of the "piriformis" in the buttock does not preclude it from causing symptoms in the lower extremities. In fact, this syndrome is common for runners. And, as someone who was surgically treated for nerve impingement, I can attest to the fact that calf involvement, numbness and tingling in the toes is common.

comment I want to get ripped. Can bodyweight exercises do the job?
Having been a competitive bodybuilder for many years, I can tell you that exercise is only part of the equation for "getting ripped". The other part is a smart eating plan.

comment Recurring muscle pull in Upper-back/Neck when doing overhead press/bench press - form advice
Without knowing more, I would guess that exercise form is the most probable cause.

comment Recurring muscle pull in Upper-back/Neck when doing overhead press/bench press - form advice
Simply put, muscle imbalance means that your other supporting muscles are not as strong or as dominant. This can happen if they are not exercised as much as the other muscles. For strengthening the traps, you should look at possibly doing upright rows, or, some form of shrugs (barbell or dumbbell)

Have you tried a leg extension machine? Is that painful too?

comment Because of alcohol consuming, cheeks are getting bigger. Is there a way to reduce it?
Without knowing more about you (age, medical condition, lifestyle), it's difficult to offer specific advice. I would suggest you speak to either your family doctor, a registered nutritionist, or a registered personal trainer.

comment Gaining muscle but scale showing more body fat percentage?
Are you aware that those scales have a profile setting you need to adjust? Having said that, I would agree with LarissaGodzilla. Those scales don't tend to be too accurate. Unfortunately, Bioelectrical impedance analysis and Hydrostatic weighing are the best ways to estimate body composition. They can be expensive.
