comment Sore stomach muscles from push-ups
@EricWilson, sometimes just the act of taking the video for your personal review will help you spot something you aren't doing quite right. But, congratulations on pushing through the DOMS.

comment Taking protein right before the workout
They should be accounted for just like anything else you eat. The only time this really becomes a serious concern is if you are trying to lose fat. However, in that case, protein shakes can be an effective way of getting the protein up while keeping the Calories down.

comment What are exercise a kidney patient can do?
Then take a look at what you are eating. Make a food journal of everything that goes in your mouth. It doesn't have to be complicated, just record what the food was and roughly how much you ate. It can be quite eye opening.

comment What is the key to avoid injury when squatting with your body weight?
You want the hips to break the plane of being parallel with the tops of the knees and the floor. You don't have to go all the way down till your butt hits your shoes. If all you can do initially is get to parallel, so be it. But you want to work towards going past even if only by a couple centimeters (or about an inch).

comment Are bumper plates “lighter”?
Regarding the boost of the cheat, if you used something like the Rogue Hi-Temp bumpers which are essentially high bounce tires, the boost is significant. The less bounce in the bumper (meaning closer to competition quality), the boost becomes less significant. However, it is still more than what you would get if you had metal plates.

Regarding the feathers? If density were wrong, you wouldn't be able to make a plate that would fit on the bar. Feathers are not dense at all. Even rubber needs metal inserts to help increase the weight.
