Want to Live Longer and Better??

July 7, 2017


     Regular physical activity promotes general good health, reduces risk of developing many diseases, and helps you live a longer and healthier life.  For many of us, "exercise" means walking, jogging, treadmill work, or other activities that get the heart pumping.  

     But often overlooked is the value of strength-building exercises.  Once you reach your 50s and beyond, strength (or resistance) training is critical to preserving the ability to perform the most ordinary activities of daily living - and to maintain an active and independent lifestyle.  

     The average 30 year old will lose about 1/2 of his or her muscle strength by age 70 2/3rds by age 90.  "Just doing aerobic exercise in NOT adequate," says Dr Robert  , physician-in-chief and Hebrew SeniorLife and an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School.  "Unless you are doing strength training, you will become weaker and less functional."
