A new strength training program reveals ‘the three keys that counteract the effects of ageing in masters athletes and those who pursue an active lifestyle’. Ageless Strength: Strong and Fit for a Lifetime by endurance sports coach and personal trainer Jeff Horowitz offers a ‘dynamic and engaging strength training program that fights back against the years’. Published by VeloPress, Ageless Strength is now available in bookstores and online.
According to the book blurb….
It’s a myth that our older years only bring physical decline. While it’s true that we lose strength, bone density, and balance, our bodies react the same way to training at any age. The answer is not to go easy on our so-called fragile bodies – that traditional approach of gentle, easy fitness just guarantees decline. The key is to push our bodies in the right ways. A smart mix of strength training can counteract the effects of ageing – and keep anyone strong and fit for years. With the program in Ageless Strength, anyone of any age can get into the best shape of their life.
Ageless Strength shares over 50 simple strength exercises that build strength, bone, and balance – combating the top three physical changes that can leave masters athletes underpowered or injured. Each exercise uses bodyweight or minimal equipment so that no gym membership is required. A 6-week quick-start program gets athletes up to speed so they can follow a long-term strength program or select from the colour-coded exercises to design their own.
In just two 30-minute sessions a week, ‘Ageless Strength offers a simple, effective way to get stronger and fitter for a lifetime of active pursuits’.
