More strawmen. No one tried to equate the two types of layoffs and no one argued for doing only 20min HIIT per day. The HIIT argument had to do with the amount of time wasted in a gym. The implication isn't that going to a gym is wasteful, it is that one should learn how to spend gym time effectively, and that in the face of wasteful effort in the gym, one would be better served with 20 mins of HIIT.

The issue isn't between being correct or incorrect. It's about being useful.
