Without strength training, adults will lose over 50% of muscular strength and muscle mass by the time they reach 80. The good news is that this doesn’t have to happen!
The word “sedentary” is key. Strength training is important for everyone, but after 50 it becomes more crucial than ever. It ceases to be about big biceps or flat abs but rather takes on a tone of maintaining a strong, healthy body less prone to injury and illness. The important benefits of strength training after 50 include:
· Builds muscle mass: No, this doesn’t mean you turn into the Incredible Hulk. It means that you are a solid, strong person who can lift their own groceries, push their own lawnmower, and pick yourself up if you fall down.
· Builds bone density: Unexpected falls put countless older people in the hospital every year. An 8-year-old puts a cast on his arm and gets back to playing in 8 weeks. An 80-year-old isn’t quite so fortunate. The ramifications of broken bones can be devastating. Strength training can help.
· Decreases body fat: Too much body fat isn’t good for you at any age. Maintaining a healthy weight is important especially when it comes to preventing many diseases that come with aging populations.
· Lowers the risk of chronic disease: Not only will strength training help stave off many chronic diseases, but it also helps lessen the symptoms of issues you may currently have. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) recommends strength training for most older adults to help lessen the symptoms of the following chronic conditions: arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, back pain, depression.
· Improves mental health: Along with aging comes a higher rate of depression and, for many, a loss of self-confidence. Strength training has been shown to improve your general self-efficacy and can help lessen the incidence of depression.
For just 20-30 minutes a day, you can see big changes in your body age.
