Resistance Training As We Age

At 60
I was in great shape

Resistance Training as We Age

Yes Resistance Training as we age is the fountain of youth!

Clean eating, natural food, no protein powders, no drugs, just consistent training with a good attitude.

It probably was once an ego thing for me to look good, feel good and slow the ‘aging process’ a bit!

Now at 68, well it’s really about mind, body and soul connection. I have no health issues what so ever!

My training is doing half an hour of weight or resistance training and half an hour of swimming most mornings.

I walk in the afternoon when I can about 5 kilometers.
