Are you pushing 50 – or (like me) are you well past that?

I’ll bet you’ve heard about the tremendous benefits of exercise and weight training . . . how seniors may slow the aging process and retain – or even reclaim – much of the strength and fitness of youth. Well, it really is true.

Beginning weight training for seniors is an age appropriate starter program. What that means is that after age 50, training progression for beginners purposely moves at a little slower rate than it might for a younger person. I'll show you how to begin. Doing too much too soon will in the long run hinder your progress. Go here.

Staying up to date on the latest health information and reliable medical resources is an important part of a healthy lifestyle at Senior Exercise Central.

Policy Notes: Like newspapers, magazines and television, Senior Exercise Central and the Gray Iron Fitness Newsletter contain advertising and affiliate marketing links.

The newsletter and Senior Exercise Central provide information to help users establish and maintain a fitness lifestyle. But fitness information is not the same as fitness advice, which is the application of exercise and dietary practices to an individual's specific circumstances. Therefore, always consult with your physician for assurance that fitness information, and your interpretation of it, is appropriate for you.
