Managment consultant. Focus on yoga, swimming (beginner, TI) and general training.

Training background:

  • Childhood: playground soccer, ice hockey, cross country skiing, swimming
  • 1973-1986 Basketball. Played in the Swedish junior national team and in the Swedish level 1 series (Brahe, IFK Linköping). Coached kids team, camp leader.
  • 1986-2000. Tried various martial arts, fencing, weightlifting, played in lower divisions of basketball. Constant problems with knees and back.
  • 2000-2007. Sporadic training due to becoming the father of twins, weightlifting, running, was only consistent with two years of Jodo. BMI peaked at 27 in 2002
  • 2007- . Mix of "everyday active" (bike to work, take the stairs instead of elevator,...), yoga, weightlifting (squats, deadlift, military press), functional training (e.g. MAQ, burpees) and swimming. Feels great.

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.

@vPeric, I think there are some research, e.g. see the search on Google Scholar for "life long physical training" in this question fitness.stackexchange.com/q/7258/3778

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..

comment Proper ergonomics for a standing desk?
The desk above seems to be fixed. I think it should be possible to change the height depending on whether you stand or sit.

comment Realistic best time for 5k?
Great to run 5K that fast! You could improve the answer by some more detail, e.g.: Do you push yourself this extreme every time your run? How often & far do you run?
