A comprehensive guide to strength training and conditioning for seniors. Strength Training for Seniors includes both theory and specific exercises for improving health and fitness, while maintaining seniors' mobility and motor skills. Several long-term studies have confirmed that strength is one of the key aspects of general fitness that can be improved and maintained to a very late age. A higher level of strength has a positive influence on the hormonal and immune systems, builds stronger bones, and helps prevent such age-related diseases such as diabetes and osteoporosis. Better strength equals a better psychological outlook, improved sleeping, better sex, resistance to stress, and better mental acuity. Strength Training for Seniors includes the following topics: - Health and Fitness Assessment - Practical Conditions for Training - Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Habits - Strength Training Equipment - How to Start Strength Training - Key Exercises
