Summary: As the median age continues to rise, strength training programs for older adults are exploding in popularity. Yet despite the increase in demand, there has been no clearly defined exercise protocol for safe, successful strength programs for older adults.Until now.

The authors point out potential technique problems with each exercise, and they suggest solutions to use if those problems occur.Westcott and Baechle also provide important information for working with special populations, including those who suffer from obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, low-back pain, arthritis, depression, visual and auditory impairments, or general frailty.The need for qualified instructors continues to increase. If you want to gain the understanding and the confidence you need to develop effective workouts for older adults, Strength Training for Seniors is for you!.
