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.

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!!

All of these make sense, but I never considered unilateral training though...I am going to do more of that.

Excellent article; good information. I like the idea of "doubling up" the power of my workout minutes. Time is precious!

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.

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...

Very helpful--thank you! I am confused about the title, though. I only saw 4 tips, not 8. Is there a page missing?

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.
