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.

comment Is it harmful not to wear an underwear while running?
I doubt you'll find such a thing. The biggest problems have to do with sweat and chafing. Sometimes undergarments provide just enough of a buffer to minimize those things. In either case, if you are already chafed then sweat will only make it worse

comment Getting fatter with weight training
There are several trackers that make this chore easier. For example: My Fitness Pal and Livestrong My Plate. I highly recommend using one of them as they can also give you a running tally so you know where you are.

comment Accurately Calibrated Plates
@boiky, I found some in the UK: wolverson-fitness.co.uk/… Unfortunately all I know is that they post their tolerances. I have no information on their reputation or independent reviews.

comment six months and no major change in losing fat
Progressive overload just means you are pushing yourself more and more over time. As I mentioned in the bullet there are several ways of doing that. If you get more reps with the same weight, you've increased. If you cut your rest times and did the same work, you've increased. If you add more weight, you've increased. Rest times are just one thing you can manipulate for your training.

comment What activity level do I choose when starting out?
Everything written here is pretty good. I might recommend starting with "Sedentary" for calorie calculation purposes, and adjust up if needed. All too often, people have an activity 5 days a week, but don't realize it's not the type of activity that warrants all those increased calories. Initially, they may not physically be able to do the kind of activity that those higher multipliers require. There's a big difference between hitting the treadmill 5 days a week and drilling for a team sport 5 days a week.

comment Boxing gloves for heavy bag - which ones?
I've updated my answer. Honestly, I've worked a canvas bag with bare knuckles before. I went for 8 rounds at 2 minutes each. No ill effects other than bloody knuckles from friction burns. That's why you use bag gloves.

comment What is the most optimum way to get best results out of protein shakes?
You can manage time by super-setting. The last 4 exercises can be done back to back in one set. Rest 2 minutes in between. That collapses 12 sets into 3 super-sets. That also brings total rest time down to about 24 minutes.
