    I could be wrong but as far as I know performance enhancing drugs are not the norm in gymnastics.

    Squat more. Squat a lot. Squat high rep until your entire core is sore. Do back extensions and do romanian deadlift. Don't deadlift more than you can with good form. Keep at it for another 6 months....

    Biceps will do that if you aren't used to it.
    Best advice is start slow. Do many muscle groups and only a bit. Next time a tad more. Etc. It's tempting to blast them first time but...

    Haven't tried on the cables. My gym has the GHR thing but I found it too awkward so I just put my feet under something, knees on a pad, and use a band for assistance. Probably better than a cable...

    What worked for me was a standard beginner bulk, 350 calorie surplus. Measure and weigh every week and...

    I estimate 100 calories per 300 feet of climbing, plus 100 per mile of walking.

    Assuming 10' floors and 11"x7" steps, you are walking 221 feet horizontally. About 4 calories.
    You are walking 130...

    Probably don't need so much variety. It could work for a bit but you'll probably need more rest and sets per exercise and fewer exercises per session pretty soon. When I started back up 15 months ago...
