9781517021986: Become a Fit Senior: Strength and Endurance Training for older adults

Understanding the science of exercise and how it applies to building strength and endurance, especially for us older adults, is a very important consideration. As we naturally age, our muscles become weaker, our balance less steady, and we are subjected to many more aches and illnesses. The information in this book is no nonsense and straight forward. It may change the way you look at exercise. If you decide to follow the plan outlined in this book, or a similar wellness program, you will be well on your way to becoming a more physically fit person. The good news is that it is a lot easier than you think! This book gives information on the benefits of eating well and details exercise guidelines from The World Health Organization, The National Department of Health and Human Services, The American Heart Association, The National Institute of Health, and other government agencies. The information is informative and sometimes startling. Scientific studies on exercise are presented from trusted publications such as the “New England Journal of Medicine,” and the “Wall Street Journal”. Included is information from a Harvard College Alumni Study that looked at the health habits of 17,000 alumni over an 11 to 15 year period. Their conclusions are remarkable. Further scientific studies show why intermittent, high-intensity exercise is beneficial, and how weight training and cardio exercise is helpful to improve strength and endurance. This book gives suggestions on how to develop an exercise plan that is tailored to an individual’s exercise needs. It covers the basics of exercise selection, location and needed equipment. The American Heart Association explains the importance of measuring the intensity of exercise and the book details a practical, common sense plan to safely exercise. A sample workout routine is provided that complies with all national exercise guidelines. This 30 minute workout is explained in detail and it follows accepted physical fitness practices. This fitness program is easy to follow, and it takes only 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week to complete.
