comment Does weight lifting burn calories?
What I meant was that a link in itself hides the relevant information that people would need to formulate a proper answer. It would be due diligence to provide the necessary information here should the link content change or disappear over time. It provides one less step for everyone to do and benefits the community at large here. Doing so will create a good, cohesive space question/answer combination here on Stack Exchange.

The way the question is written sounds like Outdoors.SE might be a better fit.
