Care to add some references for the sensory part? I'm mildly curious to find out more about it

comment Does working a diverse set of muscles increase metabolism?
How often and how long do you run? And why do you want an increased metabolism?

comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
That's a nice table, I guess they used extrapolation in most cases @Evan Though I'd rather see it categorized per heart rate intensity and weight

comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
@Evan I saw a recent study that talked about the increased energy burning after working out at 80% of your VO2max. However I'm not sure whether this burns more fat than working out at a lower intensity. Personally, I'd simply work out longer at as high an intensity you can keep up. Which will probably be higher than the regular fat burning zone, but below your anaerobic threshold

@Evan, perhaps we should have a question about how to determine your VO2max without getting tested in a lab!

comment Are video games like Wii Fit Plus actually any good for losing weight?
Perhaps I can get @Jeff Atwood to sponsor all the games, so we can put it to the test ;-)

comment Avoid chest exercises for flat chest
I'd recommend against avoiding muscle groups, because this creates an imbalance. Rather use workouts focused on endurance rather than strength.

comment Estimated calories you burn throughout day
I suggest you edit your question to ask how you can estimate you calories, rather than asking for an estimate based on a vague description.

comment Avoid chest exercises for flat chest
I wouldn't say swimmers don't use them, they just use them in a more allround way then weightlifters ;-)
