If you are coming here for a diagnosis, then I can tell you that you are in the wrong place. It is clear you have an underlying problem preventing you from properly recruiting your leg muscles. As I've said twice already, the only way to correct that is by seeing a trained professional to identify the problem and prescribe treatment in the form of mobility/stretch exercises, strength training, or worst-case, medicine/braces/surgery.

As I said, it is a combination of mobility stretches, strength building over time, and seeing a PT to actually diagnose what the underlying issue might be. (though obviously not in that order). Any more specific than that would be 1) impossible to answer without examination, and 2) out of scope for this site

comment Good resistance bands for the office?
I am having a hard time accepting this premise. If you have 30 minutes free time after work, then what's stopping you from going to the gym on the way home? If there is no gym in the area, then what about building a home gym and working out there? I can see no reason why you should be limiting yourself to working out in a cubicle when better options exist. Once you allow yourself to workout from home, your options open up tremendously so you no longer have to limit yourself to just bands.

comment What products are available that attach to existing fitness machines (weights/treadmills/cardio etc) to track usage?
I know old clothes are a popular item to hang on treadmills to track inactivity with real time feedback in amount of dust accumulated. As for activity, I sadly am unaware third party tools that meet this need. If possible, I would suggest contacting gym resellers/wholesellers directly to see if they have such a product.

@DaveLiepmann Looking back at what I wrote, it was a grammatical ambiguity. What I was trying to express was that moves like clean/jerk will build power, and that power will be beneficial to gymnastic moves like flips. I reworded to remove this confusion.

@e1che the comparison was really to illustrate the point that muscle size and strength are not 1:1. Can you be strong as a body builder? Absolutely. I'll concede that I understated the strength of bodybuilders to emphasize the underlying point that strength does not correlate to muscle size.

I will add that 3500 calories per pound lost is an estimate, and should be treated as such. Don't get too caught up trying to measure and map out every single lb., and just focus on eating a healthy and sustainable diet. Falling off the bandwagon and putting back on all the fat you lost happens to upwards of (conservatively) 75% of all dieters. I would be far more concerned with keeping motivation up and adhering to the diet than anything else.
