Are you wanting a happier, healthier life? Strength training may be just what you need.
Strength training is functional, safe and effective when implemented properly. Maintaining and even building muscle can keep you active and independent as you age. Strong muscles more efficiently power your body, protect you when you fall, help you balance, and burn more calories. Barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells may be your key to creating a happier, healthier life.
Not doing any strength training currently? That’s perfectly okay! It’s never too late to start. The natural process of losing muscle mass and muscle tissue starts when you are around 30 years old. However, it’s never too late to start resistance training. And while some loss of muscle tissue is the process of aging, the greater portion is lost by not using your muscles. The good news? You can regain this strength and power by starting a strength training program at any age.
According to a study by Harvard Health, by age 65, more than one in three people will fall, and in general, people with greater muscle strength have minor injuries compared to people with weaker muscle systems. If you have the muscle strength, not only are you less likely to slip and fall as stronger muscles and bones will help you balance and control sudden motions, if you do have a fall, you are likely to recover faster.
