comment Is rucking (running with weight in backpack) a bad idea?
It doesn't strike me as a duplicate.

comment Exercising in the gym and asthma
My wife and daughter have exercise induced asthma, and they just need to keep an inhaler with them. In your case, the biggest problem will be the combination of dust and heavy breathing. Not all gyms are spotless, some do better than others with wiping down equipment. When you get your heart rate up, you will breath heavier with your mouth open. That means more allergens hitting your lungs than through your nose. If you still want to exercise, take it slow and see how you do. If you feel an attack is imminent, pack it in and go home.

comment Information overload makes me unsure of how to lose fat weight
I worked directly with Greg Nuckols for a while, and got leaner and stronger during that time. We tailored everything based on how I was responding to the training and weight loss progress. The basics don't really change.

comment Change my routine to use strength exercises that are also cardio exercises?
Carbs make the difference. If you have enough of them to function normally (over 125g per day) then you can enjoy anything that gets your heart rate up into the glycolytic or phosphegen energy systems--which includes both heavy weights and fast runs/biking. If you don't have enough, stay in the aerobic energy systems. Think in terms of heart rate rather than how heavy/fast you are going. That 750-1000 calorie deficit puts you in category three (deeper caloric deficit). I wouldn't try to go for personal bests, but just put in work and make sure you have enough protein to preserve muscle.

comment Is there good scientific evidence on the effectiveness of rest days for building mass?
As mentioned, it really has to do with the population studied.

comment Is there good scientific evidence on the effectiveness of rest days for building mass?
What you are asking for is really a function of basic biology in terms of exercise theory. The answer you are looking for really has to do with the training maturity of the study participants, the training program they are expected to follow, etc. You can train daily, but still manage fatigue well so that you don't run into injury, or you can grind yourself into the ground.

comment Change my routine to use strength exercises that are also cardio exercises?
Are you doing a ketogenic diet (no carbs), or just keeping a caloric deficit of 2 lbs per week? As long as you are having enough carbs to stay out of ketosis, go with the weighted carries, reduced rest times, endurance work, and recovery walks. If you are are eliminating carbs altogether, you really want to avoid doing high intensity work since the demand for quick energy will come from catabolizing the biggest source of protein you have: muscles. That's why with a ketogenic diet you only want to use your aerobic (fat burning) energy systems.

comment Losing stomach fat without losing weight
Keep your bulking down to about 3 lbs per month (1.25 kg per month). That should help you not gain body fat, but still support muscle growth. By my estimations, you should be able to ~190 lbs lean mass, so if you set a cap for yourself at 220-225 lbs you'll be in a good spot with that much lean mass.

comment Different in exercises between two 100pushups sites
Being generally active will help you stay healthy. 100 pushups is a lot of hard work, and will likely put some bulk on your arms. The biggest thing is that you find something that helps you stay motivated. A program like this can be a good idea as you have a goal you are working towards.

comment Is it harmful not to wear an underwear while running?
Some critical thinking about running and free hanging testicles should be all you need on that one. Same issues for women and other parts of their bodies.
