@Jimsan 55, Granted that Wikipedia is not the most accurate source, but it is the value they quote for aerobic exercise. This range would include the "fat burning" and "target heart rate" zones.

comment If I am at risk for health condition caused by overweight/obesity, what's the fastest way to cure myself (reduce weight/fat/etc)?
If you have heart symptoms, you need to get a nutrition, exercise and stress reduction plan from your medical doctor. Ask your doctor for a safe exercise target heart rate so that you exercise safely.

comment How can I fix 'computer body'? Please help
In addition to the daily stretching, you may want to consider some professional body work by a massage therapist or physical therapist who works from an "Anatomy Trains" standpoint. They recognize the connections from your toe to your head by continuous layers of connective tissue (muscle, bones, fascia.) They can also show you how to use a foam roller to address your restrictions.

comment Chest workout to decrease muscular chest pain
I agree with @Lego to get some professional direction. Since your dad sits a lot, you may want to check this posture q/a to see some specific postural exercises.

comment Can external rotations help an already torn rotator cuff?
Did your client already have physical therapy? If not, that would be a good place to start. All rotator cuff tears are not equal. The tears can be partial or full thickness. They can involve any or all of the muscles so what works for one does not necessarily work for all.

comment Is this a good at-home exercise routine for a beginner?
The pelvic tilt and heel raise should be safe unless you have a specific problem that prevents you from doing them without discomfort. You may also want to check this q/a for good exercises for desk work. It includes a link to a posture question that addresses muscles that tighten up with prolonged sitting.

Flexibility is one consideration. However, bony structure will also determine your positioning.

comment Determining a target for weight loss
What is a good metric for defining an ideal weight should help. Waist measurements are probably the easiest and best related to health. Body fat percentage measurements takes a little more effort but is also better than weight.

comment Healing severe IT Band Issues
@Jimsan gave you a nice link that includes ITB/TFL stretches, but also includes important strengthening and balance control. This q/a also includes some other intrinsic and extrinsic factors you may need to address like shoes, running surfaces and specific hip muscle weaknesses with a link to a hip strengthening exercise video for ITBS.
