Strength Training is important for everyone, regardless of age.
Why Strength Training for Seniors is Essential.
The human body changes as we age and often in ways we don't like.
A slower metabolism
Decreased muscle mass and strength
Increased body fat
Reduced bone density
Slower reflexes and reaction times
Decreased aerobic capacity
These are just some of the normal changes we experience with aging, but they don’t have to be extreme.
One of the most important reasons to exercise at all,
and specifically to include strength training, is to slow and reduce these changes.
By the age of 70, the average adult has lost 25 percent of muscle mass. And this is
due mostly to disuse and inactivity. Any kind of exercise can reverse this loss and
build muscle mass and strength, but weight lifting, strength training, and
resistance training are best.
