comment One word for “lack of exercise”
This answer would be improved with a definition and an explanation of how this is different from sedentary, which is already given.

comment “No, faith, not a jot, but to follow him thither with modesty enough, and likelihood to lead it.”
I think it might help if you explained how but is used in the phrase. That might be the OP's sticking point. But that he understood that construction, he might well grasp its meaning.

comment Is there any reason for saying “he is good-looking”, instead of “he is well-looking”?
Your parallel isn't quite right. It ought to be "good looks" to "well-looked" if you followed the same conversion. In fact, that might tell us something very interesting, as good + complement seems to take a gerund, where well + complement seems to take a past participle. I don't have any idea if that's true or not though.
