Impact of Strength Training on Aging

Impact of Strength Training on Aging

The purpose of today’s article is to look at several recent studies that give us some ideas on how to age well.  I believe strongly in the old mantra “you’re only as old as you feel.”  If you are strong, mobile and healthy at 50, 60, 70 or 80, then you are not old.  Chronological age means nothing.  So what are some good tips to ensure that you age well?

Lift Until You’re 100

Lift Until You're 100 Years Old

You probably won’t be maxing out on your back squat when you are 100 years old.  However, it’s not inconceivable to think that you might still be alive and kicking…..and training.  I mean, why not?  If you read my daily posts on Facebook and Twitter, read my weekly articles and implement most of what I talk about (using the 80/20 rule), then there is no reason to think that you can’t live to 100 and be health and happy.

Being a native New Englander, I obviously think the world of Tom Brady.  While his nutrition regimen may be a bit over the top and not anchored in real science, I certainly respect the fact that he eats clean and healthy, with a focus on nutrient-density.  His infamous avocado ice cream has received a lot of press over the past couple of years, which I find quite amusing.
