As we age many of us begin to gain weight. As adults, if we do not do strength training exercises, we lose muscle mass. Muscle is very dense and takes up less room than fat. Muscle requires fuel, fuel as in calories. Therefore in order to stay lean we need to keep some muscle.
It is recommended to strength train 3-4 times per week. If you are just beginning, start out with light weights. Don’t overdo it to cause injury. The goal is to strengthen slowly.
Check with your doctor to make sure you are physically able to do the exercises. Your doctor should be able to give you guidelines.
