Say what you want- I always find myself clicking on articles about fitness and working out.  Reading about experts' and trainers' philosophies on the topic's interesting to me.

A couple things I've learned:

*Lifting needs to be a part of your fitness plan.

*You don't have to workout for a long period of time to get great results- you just have to work hard.  

This may having you saying "I can't believe you didn't know that" but it's been a learning process for me!

This article on Huffington Post is a good one.  It actually outlines a number of the workout lessons I was just referring to...
