Heavy Resistance-Training Improves Strength & Muscle Size in Very Old Individuals


Resistance training improves muscle mass and strength in very old individuals ๐Ÿ’ช

Lifting weights isn't just for younger people, it can form a vital part of maintaining strength and potentially functional capacity and quality of life in older individuals ๐Ÿ‹

Great effort by the authors to be able to complete a study like this in such a niche population, also the resistance training in this study was supervised by well-qualified professionals and I wouldn't advise anyone, let alone older people go into the gym and try to lift heavy weights without adequate training ๐Ÿ‘
