It requires a powerful desire to absolutely maximize performance or other results of training for this kind of detail to be important. The repeated observation that elite athletes train a lot, generally a lot more than working folks have time for, is probably the important feature of their training program that leads to their outstanding performance.

But people who have a strong interest in anything, from dry fly fishing, to coin collecting, to stock car racing, to competitive body sculpting and including competitive lifting, these people are interested in the details and assign importance to elements of style that escapes people less involved.

Getting out, being active, avoiding injury and having fun are important and widely available. Payoff appears to include better health. What more motivation do we need?

Haven't read the study, only the article. I'm not sure that 8 is a magic number, but I'm continually amazed by how less is more when it comes to both endurance and strength exercises.
