comment How many calories would a programmer (or somebody who is mostly at a desk) burn on a daily basis?
@Moses I think you're right, and therefore my response is no longer entirely accurate. I still think that such an approach is reductionist and to be avoided.

I think it's important to keep in mind the fact that calories are not the only important aspect of a diet, and that sitting at a desk all day has negative effects beyond the caloric.

I community wiki'd the post, so please upvote without concern for the fact that someone else's input would bolster my rep. :)

@Boris If I understand you correctly as saying that totally sedentary people burn enough calories, with the corollary that exercise is irrelevant, then I wish I could downvote your comment. If I misunderstand then nevermind.

No, seriously, how heavy do the weights go? And what's your height and weight?

comment What is the “kernel” for a 4 decade training program for physical fitness?
I'm sorry--5 minutes to do squats or deadlifts, a set of presses, and a set of pull-ups, once per week, and this will create gains to the peak of your potential? I think this needs a rewording or clarification. Most people need 5 minutes just to get warm to prevent injury, and one set each, once a week (while probably not so bad for health purposes) can't be said to get you anywhere close to your potential.

comment How to pick an exercise program to achieve my goals
@Aesir Lifting weights can be done for conditioning, depending on how you structure the lifts. The methods I know of are barbell complexes (where you load the bar with a light weight and do reps of several different exercises without stopping, e.g. 8 cleans, 8 squats, 8 presses, then rest and repeat) and the infamous 20-rep squat program. But no, lifting weights for strength (like in SS or SL) will not get your conditioning much past a minimal level.

@RobinAshe Thanks, looking into Mentzer's work was informative.

On a 40-year time frame, I don't think we're going to be able to get any more specific than "stay active". Maybe "keep strength, mobility, and conditioning in mind"?

Well stated question.

I guess I was looking for a program or source that espouses this view, not a method for creating such a program.
