October 07, 2015Strength training remains important as we age. It's critical to build up your muscle mass, which will help you fight off disease and prevent falls. It's so important that the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association updated its physical activity guidelines. They recommend adults aged 65 and older strength train two to three times a week. When strength-training they advise adults perform 8 to 12 reps for each part of the body. Unless you work your muscles, you lose about 5 to 7 pounds of muscle tissue each decade.
