    Speaking of generalizations, the endomorph/mesomorph/ectomorph model tries to generalize 3 different metrics into only 3 different body types. There are small boned people who are obese and large...

    Not everyone automatically gains weight with age (or marriage), but a faster metabolism is a huge advantage in most any sport. And contrary to popular belief the metabolism does not always vanish...

    I wouldn't go overboard on the protein, you can only convert so much to muscle at a time. Around 1-2 grams of protein per kg of body weight is enough, err on the high side if you are doing resistance...

    Note that "a cyclist" is not everyone. That would be a well rounded workout for a particular type of cyclist, long rides, lots of miles and little interest in anaerobic pursuits. As an old guy I can...

    For about 20 years I was self employed in a very physically demanding line of work. I used to go through quite a few employees that just couldn't hack it physically. There were some patterns common...

    There are still plenty of truly back-breaking jobs available for those who are willing, or have no other options. But for those with no choice, the "health benefits" is food for yourself and your...

    Tried gels once. They taste nasty, are mostly sugar and are not especially satisfying if you are hungry. I prefer plain whole milk; less sugar, 10x more nutrition, cheap, and doesn't rot your teeth.

    Unilateral high step ups and straight legged deadlifts will help translate that added strength to increased power to your bike's drive train.

    I'm thinking there must be more to the story. At 38 that schedule, after a month or so, shouldn't result in soreness ever, unless sleep, nutrition or something else is lacking. But if you do have...

    Certainly top 20. He is pretty good, but I think there are contemporaries that are faster in terms of pure speed. Early on that was about all he was good for, but the past 3-4 years he has matured...

    You need to ride on the rest days to flush the legs out. Just 30 minutes at a very easy page is enough. Are you getting enough protein, and what else is in that diet? Doing the weight training on the...

    That last sentence kind of sums it up.
