Staying Fit as a Senior

temp-post-image

Aging ain't pretty. Our risk of disease and dysfunction skyrocket as we age and it becomes a lot harder to lead an independent life. Do not give up, though, as we can still make strength gains even in old age. A new study out of Spain just demonstrated that elderly people can improve power and strength by lifting weights regularly.

Participants in the 12-week study were divided into two groups -- strength and balance training twice a week or no exercise. After the study, the training group raised their functional capacity, lowered the risk of falls, and improved muscle power, thereby helping prevent the natural frailty that happens late in life. This study shows that strength training can be applied to the elderly and help improve their well-being.
