The benefits of lifting weights over the age of 60 (or at any age)
Before I start I should say that you’re never too old to start so form of exercise.My clients age from 16 to 86 years old and they all have one thing in common.
They all do some form of resistance exercise.

Now let’s get into iit

Lifting weights can provide a number of benefits for individuals over the age of 60, including:
Increased muscle mass and strength: As we age, we naturally lose muscle mass, a condition known as sarcopenia.
Lifting weights can help to slow down and even reverse this process, resulting in increased muscle mass and strength.
Improved bone density: Weight-bearing exercises, such as lifting weights, can help to increase bone density and reduce the risk of fractures, especially in the hips, spine, and wrists.
Better balance and stability:
Lifting weights can help to improve balance and stability, which can reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
Reduced risk of chronic diseases: Regular weightlifting & exercise can help to improve cardiovascular health, reduce the risk of chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, and lower blood pressure.
Better joint health:
Lifting weights can help to improve the health of the joints by strengthening the muscles that surround them, this can help to reduce pain and stiffness.
Improved mental health:
Exercise has been associated with a reduced risk of depression and anxiety, as well as improved overall well-being and cognitive function.
It’s important to consult with a medical professional before beginning any new exercise routine, especially if you are over the age of 60, or have any underlying health conditions.

Also, starting with light weights and using proper form to avoid injury.

Also, it’s good to consider a getting a coach or personal trainer to meet your needs and physical conditions.

I currently run personal training sessions in person and over zoom for my clients.It’s a great way to make sure that you’re doing all the exercises correct and keeps you accountable.
