As we age and gradually our hair becomes grayer and even whiter ,our crevasses on our faces become deeper and more mature.We know the doorway on our life as we understand it it is gently closing.
But its not over by a long shot, weight and resistance training has been around for a long time and it has survived as an important tool for health and longevity for a very good reason 7 in fact! As we age our muscle mass begins to diminish but we can now easily replace the lean muscle mass we have lost by strength training through the use of weights and resistant bands and cables.
