    This is part of the trouble of just saying 5x5. What's the frequency? Load relative to 1RM? If we are debating the merits of 3x5 done 3x/week vs 5x5 (5 working sets) done once or twice a week, I'll...

    Bodyweight training is great for general health and fitness purposes. The studies that have shown benefits to cycling performance have mostly used fairly heavy loads (3-8RM), so BW is unlikely to cut...

    I'd say you're doing it right.

    Bike rides are places for cycling girlfriends, not wives.

    I wouldn't worry about it if you're not having any problems. The plumb bob technique is just a decent place to start.

    If you really want to change it, you'll need a seat post with more set back

    From the route map, it looks like it descends Lee Hill, not ascends. It looks like they came south from Lyons and then went up Left Hand Canyon, and went up Olde Stage Road, which is fairly steep...

    Hamstring curls are fine. I prefer deadlift variations for various reasons. They do train different functional uses of the hamstrings (knee flexion vs. hip extension).

    Quads: Front Squats.
    Calves: calf raises . The seated calf raise puts slack on the gastroc, and the soleus contributes more.

    Is it a calorically heavy diet, though? For actually gaining weight, energy content is most important.

    Some people just feel this way during strenuous efforts. I once trained a family of pukers. No one else has ever thrown up during a session, but you had to watch it with these guys.

    I have about a 30 minute commute. I ride my Trek (1.2, I think) with fenders and a rack, and wear shorts and MTB shoes. If clipless and shorts are better for riding, why not use them? If I just have...

    CrossFit can be ok, if you're into what they do. It very much depends on the affiliate.

    You asked. I'm not saying the evidence is totally conclusive, but it's at least interesting.

    It's certainly asinine to claim there's no evidence.

    Traditionally, it's also been said that...

    Most studies find patients with non-specific LBP are most pleased with the treatment they get to choose. When they're assigned to treatment groups, much of the treatment satisfaction disappears.

    I think it depends on the type of foot you have. I have a functional flatfoot, and the rigid CF soles are far and away more comfortable than less-rigid shoes, even on longer rides.

    It's called "metathesis." It's common, but I still dislike it. The problem is if you say "Favre" the way it's written, you sound either pompous or stupid.
