comment Gain weight while doing sports involving conditioning
If you gain weight, and keep the same body fat percentage, there will be more fat in an absolute sense. Example, 130lb woman with 20% BF will have 26lb fat and 104lbs lean mass. If she gains 5lbs and maintains 20% BF, she will have 27lb fat, and 108lbs lean mass. Unfortunately there is no way to control where the body chooses to put the fat.

comment Good effect of meal size/timing on later mixed workout performance?
@Bee, this just means if your exercise normally burns 1000 Calories, it's good to have at least 1000 Calories before you exercise. Still don't exceed your plan for the whole day, but at least give yourself enough energy to get through your training.

comment Taking protein right before the workout
@DaveLiepmann, whey protein, and easily absorbed protein isolates definitely are not satiating. Egg proteins, casein, and other slower absorption proteins are more so. Still not as good as an old fashioned steak, but better than whey.

comment Should I exercise when my muscles are aching?
I would add that the type of exercise the OP is doing isn't something where you need the rest to rebuild stronger muscles such as weightlifting. It's conditioning work which is something that you can do very often. If knees start to get a different kind of pain, the OP might look into varying the type of exercises he is doing.

comment Nutritional Label dont reach 100% total when adding all component?
Different countries have different requirements for nutritional labels. Are French nutritional labels always required to report on protein, fat, and carbohydrates? Even then, are they allowed to exclude certain classes? And don't forget about water weight with things like ham.

comment How can you tell that you are eating enough to build your muscles?
@Bee, that would be on average for the week. Varying calories is a tool to make sure the energy is there when you need it. If you wanted to, you could do a split where rest days are only up 5% and training days are up 30%. Another variation would be to have more carbs on training days and less carbs (more fat) on rest days. These are tools you can use or not. The key is that there is a surplus over the week.

comment How to take advantage of a cable machine when you've maxed it out?
It shouldn't be an either/or thing with the DLs. The fact remains if you have maxed out what the current tool can do, you have to look to a different tool.
