comment How can I keep my feet cool and dry?
@Informaficker It's acceptable here. It's something that can fit here or on Bicycles. We've had a few migrations from Sports because there has been some overlap with Fitness, and those migrations are done because they would get a better answer elsewhere. With this question, I can see this being applicable to other fitness and exercise activities. It can surely apply to people who are bicycling for exercise (and perhaps someone would be commuting via bicycle instead of driving for exercise).

comment Cardio vs. Weight lifting. Which one is better for losing weight?
Copy-pasting is perfectly okay, just either quote it or summarize and feel free to use the link as a resource. If it is your own content, I'm not as concerned about it but for other sources do give proper credit.

comment How to optimize effort?
It's still a pretty broad question. The answers are all very general too. It seems as if there are too many things to cover in just one question/answer here.

Feel free to summarize or quote parts of the post or the study. It would be nice to have that information here for reference and help prevent link rot.

comment I haven't worked out in years, how should I go about starting?
Insanity and P90X are pretty intense, probably way too much for a new person. I've seen some pretty fit people have a hard time with it too (except for maybe the Batman).
