    Not sure about the "all muscle groups" claim. It is hard to give the latissimus dorsi a good workout with dumbbells. At the very least you should add a chin-up bar to get a full body workout. - 2/9/2012 1:21:12 PM
  • great article. i'd add slowing down some of the moves, i think. - 11/2/2011 9:42:46 PM

  • Thank you for this article. I have started to get that "I'll do it tomorrow" feeling with my strength train days. This will change my routine and keep my body from getting use to the routine!! - 8/30/2011 9:28:45 AM

    All of these make sense, but I never considered unilateral training though...I am going to do more of that. - 7/23/2010 9:23:59 PM

    Excellent article; good information. I like the idea of "doubling up" the power of my workout minutes. Time is precious! - 4/3/2010 9:44:03 AM

    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

    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. - 11/6/2009 1:04:51 AM
  • Never mind! I just re-read it and realized that the last four are in the short section at the end. I feel silly now... - 11/5/2009 9:32:58 PM
  • Very helpful--thank you! I am confused about the title, though. I only saw 4 tips, not 8. Is there a page missing? - 11/5/2009 9:31:22 PM

    this is a really great article! so insightful! I'd never thought about most of the ideas presented here, and I'm glad I read this one. - 11/5/2009 12:48:05 PM
  • 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. - 10/14/2009 8:55:12 AM
