Why Strength Training for Seniors is Essential

Our bodies change as we age and often in ways we really don't like. Even healthy, normal aging includes:

> A slower metabolism

> Decreased muscle mass and strength

> Increased body fat

> Reduced bone density

> Increased bone porosity

> Stiffer joints

> Slower reflexes and reaction times

> Decreased aerobic capacity

These are just some of the normal changes we experience with aging, but they don't have to be extreme and we don't have to give in to them. One of the most important reasons to exercise at all, and specifically to include strength training, is to slow and minimize these changes.
