Strength training and aging
“Chronological aging is associated with a decrease in skeletal muscle mass and bone mineral density, an increase in fat mass, frequency of falls and fractures, and the likelihood of obesity, diabetes, and coronary heart disease. Resistance exercise has been shown to counter all of these effects of aging and, in turn, reduce the risk of all-cause mortality”.
This from the research article: “Strength Gains as a Result of Brief, Infrequent Resistance Exercise in Older Adults” in the Journal of Sports Medicine. At fit20 we specialize in highly effective and time-efficient strength training. As one of our clients stated… fit20 has streamlined strength training.
