I truly believe that participating in a progressive resistance training program is the “Fountain of Youth”.
Only, instead of a quick sip and lightning from the sky transforming you to your glory days we have the monotony, consistency, and persistency of a small stream forging the Grand Canyon.
Look at these proven benefits of resistance training (I took this list from Brett Contreras; thank you for compiling it 🙂
1. Maintain functional ability
2. Prevent osteoporosis
3. Prevent sarcopenia
4. Increase insulin sensitivity and decrease insulin resistance
5. Increase metabolic rate
6. Improve glucose metabolism
7. Decrease systolic and diastolic blood pressure and arterial stiffness
8. Decrease body fat and central adiposity
9. Improve gastrointestinal transit time
10. Reduce the risk of diabetes
11. Reduce the risk of heart disease
12. Reduce the risk of cancer
13. Reduce the risk of falls, fractures, and disabilities

And what’s crazy is that many, if not most of these benefits can be acquired with as little as 1 hour a week of resistance training for someone up to 80 years old!
It’s not too late to start and a little bit of effort – with consistency – goes a LONG way.
