Some light(er) calisthenics for those lazy days.
My RDI is already based off of a "sedentary" activity level. I plan on trying to stick somewhat below it, plus add weight lifting and some calisthenics to my daily routine. I can lift 20lb weights, but not for very long. Do I go "low and long" or heavy until failure? Somewhere in the middle? I see people generally consider heavy until failure a good solution and I assume with a mixed workout I can at least make it last for a few reps per lift, and then change the muscle focus. Any opinions?

When you log your activities you have to remember that whatever you burn in the gym is replacing the number of calories you burn by doing something else, not adding, so the net difference is lower.

Wow I really never thought of it like that... That's an interesting point. So is it possible to lose weight simply by sticking to or under the RDI?

What's are some easy calisthenics I can use to replace heavy one's (situps/pushups) just to burn an extra few calories each day?

Does "fidgeting" really burn a significant amount of calories?

What's everyone think here?
