Exercise Makes My Teeth Hurt (Sometimes)

Jogging or biking makes my back teeth ache (throbbing nerves!) when I first start exercising after maybe a month off (and also, I get violent itches deep in my leg muscle tissue.) Why? Yes, it goes away once I'm back in shape.

Travelling to NYC for a week. Advise me how to keep my legs from running out of steam!

Nutrition Tracking Software.

I need software that will track my nutritional intake. It would track calories, carbs, protean, fats and keep them in a date base for reference. It should have a good sized date base of foods already in it and be able to have new ones added. This is for a pre-intel Mac preferably, or online if need by. Free or cheap would make me happy.

Splitting up individual workout sets

Is there anything wrong with splitting one particular workout set over a few hours? For instance. If I was looking to do 3 sets of 15, benchpressing. Would there be any downside to doing the first 2 sets at 10 am, and the last set sometime later, like maybe 1-2 pm? [more inside]

He claims there's little need for specific cardio sessions -- that there's enough cardio in his resistance sessions and in daily life. Wrong? [more inside]

Life of the mind versus life of the body

After seeing the massive concensus on this thread, I started to feel concerned about how out-of-the-loop I am regarding exercise.

help me not pull my gluteus maximus

Ugh. How do I *not* pull my "butt" muscle? My butt muscle seems to cramp up fairly easily, sometimes when...uh...engaged in "lovin'" with my wife, sometimes in non-compromising positions. If I'm "cupping" my own butt, it would be the muscle where my pinkie or 4th finger is pointing...more or less. Looking at the picture on the Wikipedia entry, I would guess it'd be my Gluteus Medius...maybe. When the muscle cramps up, it's *really* painful, and I can't move *at all* for about 5-10 mins. It still hurts maybe 15-20 mins later. I'm in my 30's, skinny, and probably not in the greatest shape. Are there any exercises or stretches or something I can do to prevent/minimize this?

If it doesn't kill me, will it make me stronger or weaker

Best way, other than walking a lot (too time-consuming), to prepare for walking a lot, in a city, carrying a substantial bag? A recent walking-intensive two-week trip nearly killed my poor feet. I don't have a walking-intensive life most of the time. Should I try specific conditioning? Or would that make it worse, "using up" the mileage I have left on my feet? Should I just resign myself to babying my feet when traveling? [more inside]
