"Strength training" and "seniors" does not sound like a probable match, but in fact it is a match made in heaven. The mere thought of people who are past their physical prime pumping iron might seem vain or ludicrous, but millions of seniors are discovering the manifold benefits of strength training, and the medical community continues to produce studies showing that those who dare to incorporate strength training in their weekly routines gain all sorts of physical and emotional benefits.
Unfortunately, many seniors discover the wonders of strength training while doing rehabilitation after a surgery or a fall. You don't have to wait until you experience a health crisis to begin doing strength training. In fact, starting a regular strength training program could prevent many of the crises that force seniors to do workouts with weights.
