AGINGBy Kendall HicksWith the current U.S. life expectancy at 78 years, we may be living longer, but many of our senior citizens are not living better. Instead of enjoying their retirement years, far too many are nding themselves enduring the last ten to twenty years of life battling illness and connement, due to a lack of mobility. When a person goes through life neglecting to take care of himself with sound nutritional habits and exercise, they will most likely nd himself suering many losses as he endures his senior years. These include a loss of strength. Sarcopenia is the fancy term scientists have given to describe loss of muscle, strength and quality of tissue often seen in older adults. Beginning around age 25, people who do not strength train begin losing muscle mass. The rate of loss begins at about 4% per decade and increases with age. We also lose endurance as our aerobic capacity is diminished, resulting in reduced mobility. Flexibility is forfeited as joints change with age and the decreased range of motion is the cause of many injuries. Balance is another issue as each year hospitals see over 300,000 patients suering from broken hips due to falling. Its Never Too Late To Start Exercising! We may not be able to stop the clock, but we can denitely slow it down. Although we all will age, we do not have to get old. From the days of the Spanish explorer, Ponce de Leon, man has searched for a mythical fountain of youth. There is such a commodity, and it is called resistance or strength training.

No matter your age, exercise can improve your quality of life and you dont have to spend a lot of time doing it before seeing and feeling the positive eects. Research overwhelmingly points out that muscle does not know age. Instead, it only knows use and disuse. In light of this, a seasoned citizen can anticipate gains in strength, endurance, exibility, and balance, no matter their age when beginning a tness program. If you have not yet reached your golden years, remember the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Taking care of your body now will help insure a healthier and happier life in the future. If you are in those golden years, its never too late to start. Your body will respond to a strength training program geared to your abilities. In the beginning phase of any strength training program, consistency is more important than intensity. Begin by lifting weights, whether machines, dumbbells, or resistance bands at least two nonconsecutive days per week. Always warmup before s
