As we age, the common belief is that we shouldn’t stress ourselves as much. For many people this means that they give up their strength training routine altogether when it comes to their exercise routine, and lean more towards endurance exercises. For those people who are new to training and want to start exercise, weight training is usually a low priority for them as well. Not only is weight training not bad for you as you age, weight training can greatly improve your health and may increase your lifespan as well. Maintaining muscle and bone mass is a must when trying to maintain our health, and can both be done through weight training. With that being said, you obviously aren’t going to be able to train in the same manner that you did when you were younger, so there are some techniques and methods you are going to want to know before doing so.
