Strength Training - The Fountain of Youth

Ok, you’re convinced you want to strength train, but need a nudge or ideas to update your gym routine? Begin by identifying WHY you want to get stronger.

According to the IDEA Fitness Journal, we lose 5% of muscle mass every decade after 40 and it accelerates after age 65. Strength training can reverse the loss of muscle, help your body move more youthfully, help you stand up straighter, and increase the range of motion in joints. “Most of us can be functionally younger every year for the next five or even ten years”, says Chris Crowley in his and Dr. Lodge’s book, Younger Next Year, a book advocating exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.

The dark, damp days of winter are already here and soon the Winter Blues follow. Our summer outdoor activities might not be our best workout for winter and we might need some extra vitamin help as well. At our latitude in the San Francisco Bay the sun’s rays are not intense enough in the winter for us to make Vitamin D, even on the sunny days.
