I'm a regular over at http://ironstrong.org, started lifting weights regularly in April 2011 after I lost 85lbs of weight. I started modestly, with just the bar on most exercises, and as of April 2014, I'm able to lift:

  • Squat: 455lb
  • Bench: 290lb
  • Overhead press: 170lb
  • Deadlift: 520lb

I'm still improving, both in the amount I can lift, and removing the amount of fat I'm carrying around.

comment Gain muscle mass for fat loss
Essentially, Medhi has kicked out all the free members of the Strong Lifts forum--including all the ones he brags about in his SL 5x5 report. The only way you can be a part of the forum is by paying him $10 a month. He also seems to have a hair trigger for ejecting even paying members if they disagree with him on any points. That and his habit of selling advanced lifting advice to novice lifters who have yet to learn the basics.

comment supplements for building muscle with low level training
What I am saying is that low levels of exercise is enough to cause the visible result you are seeing. However, those supplements are designed for people who are putting in a lot of work.

comment How to convert difference in elevation into distance?
I don't know of any common conventions, but for the purposes of the original equation the pace was considered a constant. Using some Calculus skills would allow you to refine it a bit based on the pace you are running. However, to plot the results you have to have an accurate measure of pace. You'll also have to take different measures based on your speed.

comment How do I determine what size exercise ball I should use as a desk chair?
If this were a question about the proper size ball for exercise it would be squarely on topic.

comment Is it a good idea to use an exercise ball as a chair?
I know it's late to the party, but it would be better to keep questions about exercise balls to actual exercise.

comment What are the differences between RunKeeper and Cardio Trainer?
I'm sure in most cases they are interchangeable. There a number of apps that overlap each other, but the user interface is different. One may suit your tastes better than another. If RunKeeper works well for you, there is probably little reason to try something else.

comment What are the outcomes of training unevenly on various body muscles?
With the rotator cuff, you just need to make sure you have enough flexibility and range of motion in that region before loading it with weight. I personally don't do dumbbell flys, but you do need some range of motion to get the overhead press right.
