Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "Too Basic"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who believes that seniors can't lift


    Has Strength Training for Seniors turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Feelings? Hmmm. I may need to spend some time on a velvet couch before I can articulate those.


    Any additional comments?

    This book may turn a light-bulb on for the person who has never touched a weight or the person who has always assumed that weights are only for steroids-swollen bodybuilders. As a person who has had his hands on weights for a long time, I sought some specific details on physiology and nutrition for the aging lifter. This book was way too elementary to provide much of that. Much of the brief time was wasted just making the case for seniors lifting at all. It then described some basic dumbbell lifts and calisthenics for major muscle groups which all lifters are familiar with. There were some tips on form and pace (like going slow on the negative) which novice lifters need to know, but those tips apply to a 16yo, just as they apply to a senior. I did not continue listening to the very end because it was clear that this book was too elementary.
