Strength Training

Strength Training can help you preserve and enhance your muscle mass — at any age.

Strength training also helps you:

  • Develop strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Control your weight. As you gain muscle, your body begins to burn calories more efficiently. The more toned your muscles, the easier it is to control your weight.
  • Boost your stamina. As you get stronger, you won’t fatigue as easily.
  • Manage chronic conditions. Strength training can reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic conditions, including back pain, arthritis, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
  • Sharpen your focus. Some research suggests that regular strength training helps improve attention for older adults.

Strength training can be done at home or in the gym. Common choices include:

  • Body Weight Exercises
  • Resistance Bands
  • Free Weights
  • Barbells and Dumbbells
  • Weight Machines
