comment How to manage inflammation in a resistance training program?
What part wouldn't you say is necessarily true? There's two main issues stated. As far as needing more rest time, that depends on a number of factors--but muscular inflammation shouldn't be the main one.

comment Why can extreme athletes eat so many calories without health risk?
There are several health indicators such as blood pressure, blood lipid levels, LDL cholesterol levels, as well as body fat levels. Exercise alone has marked impact on most of these health indicators. If the body is burning all the energy it consumes (i.e. body fat percentage is not increasing), and all other health indicators are within acceptable parameters, they are healthy.

comment Could a thicker pull-up bar explain my inability to do as many pull-ups?
I read that same article, and the grip is worked harder, so they advise lowering weight first. While I agree that over time the OP should be able to do more, initially they will see some reduction in ability.

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.
