Thanks for the great article. I especially like the references to Benjamin Franklin, he is a fantastic role model. I frequently go to the web site for motivation and insight. http://www.sfheart.com/FranklinsVirtues.ht ml

I like this because with my 4 new chronic back conditions, I know I can strengthen up while sitting in a chair and not straining my back. I use 1-2 pound dumbells but I prefer the resistance tubing because it is easier on my back/bondy.
I follow the program in the book "New Rules of Lifting for Women" and all of the workouts are 25-40 minutes, 3x a week. They're great, intense workouts but nothing too time consuming. The book also recommends not doing isolation exercises. The recommended exercises aren't exactly compound, but do work large muscle groups at a time.
