comment Why are strength programs made the way they are - much of the same, regular intervals, same program for a long time
Isn't there supposed to be an optimal "time under tension" per timeperiod (e.g. weeks) for muscles? This and the desire to stress the muscles could explain e.g. 3x5 or 5x5.

comment Firstbeat Energy Expenditure Algorithm
Given that they use neural networks as the main technology component, it might be difficult to scientifically explain the mapping (see "Disadvantages" in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_neural_network)

comment How to structure a high intensity interval training (HIIT) program?
A popular structure in terms of timing and effort is "Tabata", see fitness.stackexchange.com/search?q=tabata. If you do any sports with high intensity moments (e.g. martial arts, team sports), you can structure exercise part of the program around them.

Here is one reference that shows that training over longer time is good for you, see europepmc.org/abstract/MED/318008/… However, that is hardly a surprise..

comment Is it advantageous to be fit when young?
@Chris, good point. However, too specific -> less useful but also too general -> less useful. So I was just thinking about one way of making it more grounded.

comment Which are examples of “higher intensity cardio”?
No, then this would not have been written :-). 224 is the estimated EPOC in ml/kg, see the right axis.

comment Is it advantageous to be fit when young?
Agree, the question needs a bit more work to be answerable. One way of would be to relate more to your specific situation, perhaps something in line with "I am xy years old, haven't exercised, how should I plan to get better at <..>/lose weight ../... and sustain this over more than a decade without <...> side effects of injuries, overtraining..

The desk above seems to be fixed. I think it should be possible to change the height depending on whether you stand or sit.
