Training with weights for health/fitness/gym is suitable for all ages and particularly good for people over the age of 55 who have the most to gain from increasing their muscle strength. Strength training has many advantages from improving the ability to carry out everyday chores to alleviating depression and anxiety. There are lots of benefits from such kind of a fitness regime.
You won’t need to go on a diet. Toned muscles increase kilojoules, so even when you are resting, your body is using about 7 percent more energy and reducing the possibility of weight gain. Also it helps to prevent osteoporosis by increasing bone density and reversing bone loss, just as weight-bearing exercise such as walking or jogging does. It is also great for lower back health because toned abdominal muscles support the lower back, reducing the risk of spinal injury thus keeping you out of harm’s way.
