comment What did I do wrong to get exercise-induced lower back pain?
Do you have any rest days? Form problems can cause all kinds of issues, as well as carryover from one exercise to the next. You also need to let your body recover from work.

comment How long can I fast without losing muscles?
I don't know of any studies about that per se. However, do know that getting stronger does require muscles to grow. There's two types of hypertrophy: sarcoplasmic (what bodybuilders want) and myophibrilar (what power lifters and Olympic lifters want). That is a result of the type of load you put your body under (your workout). The rules surrounding recovery (including nutrition) are the same.

comment Push ups and (blood?) pressure?
Yes, as I mentioned, "this action is intensified...". Question: do you have a diet high in sodium, or have a large amount of sodium before attempting exercise? I only ask because the only times I have experienced similar symptoms is when I'm performing deadlifts on days where I happen to have a high sodium intake (like eating at 5 Guys burgers and fries).

comment Do fit or muscular people age better?
I think it is fact that you will lose muscle every decade, the question is whether the muscle loss is overtaken by the work you put in during that decade to build it up. For example the work I've put in over the past 6 months has increased more muscle mass than I am likely to lose (or have already lost) since I turned 30. However, the closer I get to my genetic potential, the more I will be fighting a losing battle. That could take me until my 50s to achieve--if I keep pushing in that direction.

comment What are the Single or Two ply powerlifting suit benefits?
No (or very little) carryover from suited lifts to raw lifts. However, there is carryover from raw to suited. This is why Dave Tate recommends most training without the suit until you really need to. The suit is providing assistance, so you are using less of your own strength at the beginning of the concentric phase.
