RESISTANCE TRAINING

Resistance training = strength training helps build muscles, which burn calories, and increase your metabolic rate.  Particularly for older women, strength training may also help maintain bone mass.  More bone + more muscle may mean fewer falls, and fewer bone fractures.

You don’t need weights or even a gym membership.  See my buddy Dr. Mike’s YOU book, which includes exercises you can do at home using your own body weight for resistance!
