comment Any suggestions on dealing with a longer-term shoulder injury?
The problem with recommending you specific workouts is that your injury is caused by trauma, not by overuse and/or wrong training. So without knowing specifically what muscles, tendons or other structures are affected, I can't really recommend you anything. Though everyone should strive for a balanced workout, that normally would help prevent injuries in healthy people.

While the t-nation articles give excellent advice, I would advice you to summarize a top five in your own words, so people know what to expect from the links.

comment Is body fat monitor worth buying?
True @md5sum, but I guess the point is that they fail to validly assess your body composition. If you were to loose fat but gain muscles, it might skew in another direction than when you only lost fat.

comment Why rest between sets?
It depends on your workout @Jeremy, my answer is more a general statement, so yes in some cases in might not be 100% correct, but that goes for anything exercise related...

comment Are slender gels any good?
Those are paid, user-generated reviews @gruszczy, I have a hard time judging it's objectivity nor can I find any scientific research (might be due to the search terms), which is generally a very bad sign

Have you found any sources that explain what they are supposed to do? If I search for it I get lost in spammy posts trying to sell me the gels

The site where the images come from have a guide for it @gruszcy, but you could ask it in a separate question

"Do such gels work?" What do you expect them to do? Consider adding some information you found yourself of which you doubt if its true or want to know how it works.

comment How to comfortably carry equipment when running?
How comfortable are they around the shoulders or do they tend to fit well (so it doesn't sway or rub)?
