5/6, It didn't occur to me that walking with weights wasn't good. I suppose that makes sense, though.

Just because caffeine can boost endurance doesn't make coffee a healthy choice. After all, there are plenty of unhealthy performance enhancers. While I don't think one cup of coffee will be too harmful, there are also risks associated. You have to take into account the coffee raises standing heart rate and blood pressure, and that it is also a diuretic, which causes water loss.

5/6 Not bad, although, since I work at a gym... I probably should have all of these right!
