As you age, your lean muscle mass starts to decrease. Over time, this can lead to weakness, decreased physical capacity, and the inevitable struggle to complete activities of daily living as you age further into your 60s and beyond.
A loss of muscle mass can eventually lead to a lack of strength, stability, and balance that results in an increased risk of falls, associated injuries and further physical deterioration. But you can do something about it.
It is proven that basic weight training after 50 can help maintain your independence in later life, reduce your risk of age-related diseases, maintain a healthy body composition, and increase physical capabilities in your work and home life.
It’s very easy to become overwhelmed with contradictory advice, complicated exercises, and futuristic gym machines. The aim of this book is to simplify strength training for older adults, focus on the fundamental exercises that should create the foundation of your weight training program, and clarify any misconceptions about how to improve strength beyond 50. $2.99 on Kindle.
