There are proven techniques to combat the aches, pains, and ailments associated with getting older.
Guess what? You don’t have to turn into a shrivelled up, wheelchair-bound senior who watches Johnny Carson re-runs all day! There are seniors working out and staying strong well into their 90s, and you can be one of them.
Strength training is the closest thing you’re going to find to the fountain of youth. Just like with anything, if you don’t use it, you lose it. The more you make your muscles work, the more efficient they will become!
Not only that, but your body will show its appreciation for your efforts in the form of all kinds of neat chemical reactions in your body that will slow down the aging process to a snail’s pace.
First Of All, You Need To Change Your Mindset
Too many people have a defeatist attitude that the decreased mobility, agility, and balance associated with aging are inevitable. They think that muscle wasting (losing muscle mass) and weight gain are just a by-product of getting old.
You just need to keep up, and even increase your strength training. The ailments associated with aging are not inevitable, they are PREVENTABLE and in fact REVERSIBLE.
Forget About Fat Loss!
Although fat-loss seems to be the rage, a fat-loss expert recently admitted that 99% of those trying to lose weight fail because they just don’t have the desire and discipline. On the other hand, anyone can become stronger and faster with minimum fuss.
Why get stronger? With increased strength comes the ability to function or carry on like you did 30 years ago. A side bonus is that with renewed strength you will slim down, replacing fat with solid muscle.
The fact is, strength training is actually more important now than it was when you were in your 20s and 30s. Strength training will help keep you young. We do not need to know how to add “slabs” of muscle onto our quads, or make our abs look like a washboard. We need sound, functional advice to help us get through the rest of the days of our lives with ease, grace, and enjoyment.

VIDEO 2 — Exercise Technique
- Resistance band exercises are utilized in various directions to thoroughly warm-up the body.
- Weight training exercises begin at the top of the body and work downwards to simplify.
- The Trapezius or upper back muscles is worked with both upright rows and shrugs. The “traps” heavily affect one’s posture and are called upon to press overhead or throw an object.
- Shoulder exercises consist of the over-head press as well as front/side/rear dumbbell raises. Strong broad shoulders enable one to put away heavy groceries onto the top shelf, and also give the appearance of a narrower waist.
- Bent-Over rows or pulling exercises work the entire back by changing the body’s angle and the angle of the wrists. The low back is strengthened by isometrically contracting as a stabilizer muscle which can prevent pain on the putting green or simply bending over at a sink brushing one’s teeth.
- The Chest Press or bench press is a compound exercise that targets the chest muscles, the triceps or back of arms and the front shoulder deltoids. Flys isolate the chest muscles. The chest is strongly used to push away an object or to throw a punch.
- If Squats is considered the “King” of exercises then the Lunge would be the “Queen” for lower body size and strength. Both exercises will build up one’s legs and butt and add strength and endurance to walking, running, jumping and of course squatting down to the floor.
- Calves or lower legs consist of two muscle groups to support the upper leg and assist in climbing, jumping and pushing off with the toes. They are best worked with heel raises with toes in, out, and parallel to each other.
- Abdominals are more than for aesthetics. They can be a predictor of good health as well as good posture. They can prevent low back injury and lessen the risk of herniation. There are countless ways to strengthen these muscles and should be performed without risk to the discs in the spine, as demonstrated.
- Arms may definitely be for aesthetics as men want to “fill out a t-shirt” and women appreciate their own firm upper-arm development. Having said that, strong arms can push and pull to a greater degree than weak arms. There are hundreds of various arm exercise out there, but a systematic routine of varying elbow position and wrist angle works best.
