I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment How much exercise is “just enough”?
The fact that a workout is hard, which I do not dispute, does not equate with it being useful. The question is, what does 4.1mph@15% incline for 24 minutes do for you that's going to keep you living ably and comfortably? What would squatting and deadlifting do? Anyway, citations added. Cardio is not the only kind of fitness for health; strength is quite helpful for remaining healthy and able.

comment Why does Starting Strength prescribe minor resets?
Good point. Getting used to failure (or grinding through a challenging weight with worse and worse form) isn't great for long-term progress.

You need to be more specific about the exercises you can and can't do. How many air squats does it take to make you vomit?

comment Arms are too long to snatch? Advice, please!
Maybe try snatching and OHSing (lightly) with the wider grip for a while, to see if your wrists acclimate?

Thanks for noticing the tag issue! And I hear you about getting mistaken for a competitor.

Just a note, "weightlifting" (one word) is generally taken to mean Olympic weightlifting (as in, the snatch and clean-and-jerk), as opposed to powerlifting (squat, bench, deadlift) or weight lifting (just, y'know, lifting weights).
