Review:

Strength training is an equal-opportunity exercise system; studies show that anyone who tries it can benefit. Muscle loss is inevitable through the years if you're sedentary. But no matter how old you are when you start, strength training has nearly immediate benefits: more muscle mass, more strength, less fat. This book gives older exercisers all the information they need to get started, including advice on testing for strength and how to pick a qualified personal trainer.

From the Publisher:

"Dr. Wayne Westcott has, once again, outdone himself, presenting in an easily understandable style the principles of safe and effective strength training for seniors. The importance of this aspect of fitness training for the older population cannot be overstated. Improving health, strength, and fitness while enhancing function and avoiding unnecessary injuries through strength training are particularly important in this age group. We once again applaud the latest effort by Dr. Westcott, one of the leading authorities on strength and fitness."
