Re: squat question

[You either provide evidence to back up those claims, or they get rightly dismissed. I'm not sure where the burden of proof lies in this case. It's hard to judge which of the two claims "heavy squats will cause harm if done for many years" and "heavy squats will not cause harm even if done for many...

Re: Estimated Calorie Requirements Overestimates Calorie

On a tangential matter: How come the utilization (absorption) food, which varies from 97% for fat and animals proteins to 80% or so for veg. proteins and carbs (I forget where I got this number from so I might be wrong here) is not taken into the calculations? One look at NPU table like, for example...

Re: squat question

I don't understand how this can be the case. There is rarely no pressure on your spine. What I mean is that no pressure is added in the body axis direction - which is the direction that loads the discs in the spine - by pressing when the legs are perpendicular to that axis, which is the case in tha...

Re: squat question

Also, in a leg press you could say similar. You jam your spine between a plat form and shoulder pads. The spine is still compressed, in other words. The leg press machine I use is such that the legs are perpendicular to the spine, so there is no pressure on the spine along the body axis. The pressu...

Re: squat question

Also, what about deadlifts? Similar stress (if not more) on the lower back but the weight isn't placed on top of the shoulders/pyramid? I'm just a layman, but the weight is effectually on the shoulders regardless of the hands position, since that's where the arms are attached to the body. So I gues...

Re: Tips on becoming a good (hopefully great!) instructor/PT

On top of what the others said, I think one of the most important attributes of a good instructor is to be able to say the sentence "I don't know but I will find out and get back to you" when appropriate. For some reason people are afraid to admit the simple fact they don't know everything, and pref...

Re: Coq10 supplementation

From Wikipedia: "However, there are still no conclusive data that support the role of CoQ10 deficiency in the pathogenesis of statin-related myopathy."
Any reliable sources to the contrary will be appreciated.

The usual stuff like a bottle and a towel, plus a pair of earplugs. The high volume music is driving me crazy.

Re: Cardiopulmonary vital signs....

You are the one who essentially said that you had no idea about this; I merely pointed out that you either should, or should have someone better than a bunch of gym rats to ask. I surely agree with your general sentiment, but I think you are a little too harsh on the guy. The thread started with hi...
