comment Hourly 30 second workouts for the workday?
ZOD, thanks for the long and well thought-out answer. Unfortunately I can't accept "don't bother, do this instead" as an answer. We're all experienced in fitness and sports and (as I mentioned) we're doing this in addition to our normal workout routines. We can't get sweaty for obvious reasons. I got the idea for this from an Elliott Hulse video where he advises a person interested in doing more pullups to do as many pullups as possible every hour during the day, just to get more training volume. But, we also found this to be a good approach to keeping the body from getting "desk bound".

comment Is once-per-week training enough for building muscle
Good question @LarissaGodzilla regarding training effectiveness. I don't have a resource for that. I agree with your comment and would not recommend a once-per-week routine to anyone either. I imagine one could still make improvements if that were their only option, however.

The research indicates they erode within a certain time period. See the table in my answer. Also, "one day of exercise is not enough" -- enough for what? Seems subjective.

Any references on "any benefit you see in a day will have eroded by the 4th to 5th day."? Seems unfounded.

Thanks for the suggestion. I can see how that would help. I'll give them a shot!

comment Is There a Fitness / Activity Tracker which Measures Heart Beat Rate?
@rrirower Well, thanks to the upcoming wearable tech, they can be worn all day. People want a more accurate representation of activity level than a pedometer can provide. They want to be able to track their heart rate all day. That is why these products exist. And no, it's not just my opinion. I imagine most everyone would agree it's more comfortable to wear a fitness band all day than a chest strap, and it's more convenient for a number of reasons. The point can be argued, but what's that got to do with the poster's question?

@rrirower Because if you want to wear it all day, it's not comfortable, difficult to take off and put on, and looks strange under a dress shirt.
