How to Build Strength (The New York Times)
Everyone knows that exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health. But most people ignore one crucial component of it: resistance training. According to federal researchers, only 6 percent of adults do the recommended minimum amount of at least two muscle-strengthening workouts each week. Neglecting resistance training – any type of workout that builds strength and muscle – is a big mistake. It increases your metabolism, lowers your body fat and protects you from some of the leading causes of early death and disability. You don’t have to lift like a bodybuilder (or look like one) to benefit from resistance training. And it’s never too late to get started. Here is everything you need to know about resistance training, along with some simple, expert-approved workouts you can do at the gym or at home with minimal equipment.

Of Course Exercise is Effective For Weight Loss, You Low-Expectation-Having Science-Allergic…

Clinical trials on weight loss or body composition often compare a diet group to a diet exercise group.

Frequently, exercise makes little / no difference when it comes to body composition changes.

This has led a variety of people to conclude that exercise is broadly ineffective for weight loss.

This conclusion is stupid.

Two main reasons:

Most research on this topic is on obese people. The exercise protocols administered are a gussied-up version of ‘walking around’. On a 1–10 intensity scale, I give them about a 1.5
It’s a dead issue. The focus on weight loss — and there’s so much — sucks oxygen from equally important issues (exercise capacity, cardiac and vascular health, glucose metabolism, muscle mass, bone density, tissue quality, etc.)

Better conclusion: CRAP exercise is ineffective for weight loss
