I work at PNC bank as a Software Engineer SR.

Once upon a time I worked in a factory to pay for my CS degree. I was promoted several times into engineering and then into engineering management. To switch back to my goal of a computer programming became expensive - upper end engineering salary vs mid level programmer. So I wrote code to automate engineering processes ("Expert System" if you will). Then one day I made an executive decision and made the career change and have been happier but poorer since.

comment Ideal Human Nutrition for athletic ability and longevity
I agree with @inquisitiveIdiot, I like the question and would love to hear responses but I don't think there could be ONE definitive answer which is a requirement for SE / SO.

comment What is the difference between rest and sleep? Can inactivity replace sleep?
there are studies done which says that you could "rest" and not fully sleep a little bit at a time all day long (I forgot, it was something like 5 minutes an hour?). However in practice, few people were able to keep it up greater than 6 months. I think part of it was, "nobody else is up at 3am, so what's the point?"

comment Good walking Shoe and Insert
I hope a mod corrects me if I'm wrong. Your question is a product request and not a good fit for Physical Fitness SE. While I'm a bit confused on the particulars, I've seen questions like this closed here.

comment Is it okay to do workouts immediately after doing yoga?
Agreed, and when you truly understand why you are doing Yoga, it will be obvious that you would do them in this order. Yoga isn't just a fancy name for stretching :)

comment Does BMI really matter?
Please see @Kneel-Before-ZOD answer. We will agree to disagree at this point. I think it's total BS for healthy people.

comment Does BMI really matter?
@LegoStormtroopr that has not been my experience. It doesn't take in account your BF, it only looks at you age, height, weight, and physical activity. That's not a good way to measure health IMHO. However for the average person, it's a good guess.

comment Does BMI really matter?
No, BMI is pure BS. I was 250lbs and 7% bodyfat and I was morbidly obese when I went to my company's health evaluation (back in the day). I said, "yep, I'm dead."

comment Can i start exercising two months before my marriage?
@LarissaGodzilla exercise may be a stress reliever. But I agree with your assertion regarding the lack of context.

comment For bench press, should I use dumbbells, a barbell, or the Smith machine?
Yes, you should use all of them. However after ripping my rotor cuff, I never did flat bench with anything else but dumbbells. However I did a lot of incline barbell, which made my shoulders freakish. And incline benching 275 for reps as a bodybuilder was impressive among my peers :)

comment Should I be wearing socks with the Nike Hyperfeel?
@JohnP Agreed. Omar, just because this site may be the best fit or better than all of the other sites, does not mean that it should be asked here. Some questions are out of scope for every site. That's also why you can make your own on area51.stackexchange.com. Sorry, just because the square peg fits in the round hole, it doesn't imply that it belong there.

comment Good workout regimen for building muscle and losing fat?
I think you should rephrase that to "... losing fat". Unless there's a weight class you're trying to get into, losing weight and increasing muscle is like saying, "I want to lose weight and gain weight". Gaining muscle will help you lose fat, as you'll be burning more calories while attempting to gain muscle.

comment Should I be wearing socks with the Nike Hyperfeel?
I'd even argue that this question is off topic. Even though running is related to fitness, this is more of a product specific question and not a fitness question.

comment Daily Yoga routine
I understand. Once you understand the practice of Yoga and what you're attempting to accomplish, you won't need a book or a class. You perform all of those moves for the several minutes of calm which follows.
