comment What are some good alternative shoes for strength training?
@Cheeky, thanks for the input. My squat is pretty near 500 lbs now and my deadlift around 550. I asked this question 5 years ago. I've also since gotten some proper shoes. Both the Rebock Crossfit Lite TR and a pair of Adidas weightlifting shoes. They do make a difference, Not a fan of barefoot since my gym in in my garage now. Lots of little pebbles and stuff in there--even when I sweep.

comment Home Workout: My body has been disfigured. How do I even the both sides?
@VivekGhimire, Pushups are still bilateral. Think about using dumbbells, fixing form, etc.

comment Are squats with dumbbells as effective as squats with barbells?
Both are good. The Goblet actually encourages you to engage your upper back, so it might have a slight advantage until you run out of dumbbells big enough to challenge you. At that point you either need to switch to barbells or cleaning the dumbbells to your shoulders as I suggested.

I quite literally feel your pain. Don't have an answer though.

comment Scapular contraction: should I always do it?
For dips, I'm concerned about you slouching down. Reference medicalexhibits.com/… for shoulder anatomy. I'm concerned about the humerus scraping the supraspinatus or pinching the biceps tendon. So you need to prevent shrugging while doing dips. Your lats can help prevent shrugging on dips.

comment How to lose fat even if “fit”?
@Motivated, I don't see why not. But I would direct questions about specific programs to the person who wrote them.

comment Why does a closed width bench press hurt more than a wide width bench press?
@Motivated, I added links to the best resource I've found over the years for the bench press.
