Do you think that age 65 is too old to be lifting weights? Not true!
Weight training is one of the secrets of aging gracefully. Weight lifting can help you reduce your risk of falling, improve your balance and coordination, increase everyday functioning and help maintain a healthy weight. These benefits don’t require heavy lifting. Use weights that are light enough so that you can do about 10-15 repetitions of an exercise for each muscle group. Aim to do muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days of the week. If you are not sure what to do, ask a qualified fitness trainer.
