Resistance training interventions can improve physical functioning, essential for fitness, boost mobility and balance, manage chronic disease, can positively affect psychological well-being and quality of life. Older adults with various levels of function, fitness and health status will benefit from resistance training, from the superager older athlete to the older adult that has difficulty walking to the front door.

So what’s a big reason why people gain weight as they age? -Poor metabolism. Studies show that overtime someone who does not strength train loses half a pound of muscle each year. That means over a ten-year period 5 pounds of muscle is lost. We know that muscle tissue has a positive effect on our metabolism, and as adults age and age, muscle tissue atrophies because there is a lack of resistance training and or challenging activity. Muscle tissue has a big effect on resting metabolic rate.

How Do I Gain WeightWhile it’s not as common a goal as losing weight, there are a significant number of people that have weight gain as their goal. The reasons are as varied as the individuals but could include wanting to gain weight for a sport, wanting to put on some pounds after rehabilitating from an injury or you are just underweight and have trouble making the scale go up or your Doctor has asked you to gain weight.
