If you have not added strength training to your workout regime than you are truly missing out. For over 30 years I have helped clients of all ages increase muscle and stay lean. Muscle and strength is paramount all ALL ages! The greatest part is it does not take hours in a gym like you may think.
Muscle strengthening can include weight training and body-weight exercises like push-ups and squats. Just 30 minutes a week can reduce the risk of dying from any cause by up to a fifth, according to this new study. That’s huge! The benefits of strength training are undeniable. From blood pressure to heart health to independence as we age, strength training is non-negotiable. I tell my clients it is the most important 30 minutes of their lives.
30 minutes 2-4 times a week is what I suggest. It is such important time spent!
