    Figuring out when you finish digesting just complicates things. Not eating for 24 hours would be a 24 hour fast. That might include 1-5 hours of digestion depending on the person and what they ate....

    Strength training programs (e.g. 5x5) are often designed that you don't reach muscle failure. For those programs free weights make a lot more sense than machines. McGuff doesn't dispute this, and my...

    That's a very black and white view. Doug McGuff (Body By Science), where this info seems to be adapted from has spoken about equipment with a bit more nuance. He's not opposed to free weights in many...

    Are you saying muscular failure under free weights is safe, or that there's no point to reaching muscular failure?

    Only way to know for sure is to try it. My guess would be that if you set out with a decent amount of glycogen you'll be fine. Meaning, if you're 30 hours into a fast, and before fasting you did a...

    Partial pullups while recovering?

    About 3 weeks ago I strained a tendon where the bicep comes into the elbow. It was fairly painful doing day to day stuff and I even avoided carrying general objects in that arm.

    It's recovered...

    Sprinting is cardio. You cannot run fast without your CV system being very involved.

    If you mean "Chronic Cardio" I consider that to be at a point where you're doing more harm than good. Here's a...

    Magicmerl I think the OP means a strength plateau, not a weight loss one.

    Good idea, my core strength needs some maintenance.

    I did 3m:10s this afternoon.

    I'll try to get that up to 5 minutes.

    Glycogen doesn't "run around the body" — it's glucose (sugar) stored in the muscle and liver. I guess it can move from the liver to the blood stream, but in this context we're talking more about the...

    Also how, is your fitness? Averaging 169bpm for ~20km/h seems high, unless it was hilly territory. Although I'm not a...

    Give blood and ask for your haemoglobin level (I'm assuming they check that when donating wherever you are).
