October 09, 2014Building muscle mass is critical for seniors. It helps fight off disease and prevent falls. In fact, it is so important that the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association updated their physical activity guidelines. They recommend adults 65 and older strength train two to three times a week and advise 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. Especially important for seniors, strength training can add to bone density and potentially prevent osteoporosis!
