strength training in your 60s

Muscles aren’t a “young man’s game.” Men and women of all ages can gain both strength and muscle. Research shows that strength training in those 60 years or older led to significant benefits such as stronger bones, improved balance, a lower fall risk, enhanced memory and focus, reduced blood pressure and blood glucose, and increased protection against the development of many chronic diseases.

Muscle Loss Over Time

Muscle tissue changes from decade to decade. Muscle mass decreases approximately 3–8% per decade after the age of 30 and this rate of decline is even higher after the age of 60. Muscle loss can also contribute to limited physical ability, low energy, and decreased metabolism.
