Older is Better if you Train

It’s nothing knew to me. Fact I’ve been trying to get people to realize these facts for sometime now. I don’t know this from reading scientific studies. I know because I’ve been doing it all my life. Now the fact are coming out and the studies are in full swing.

Sorry guys. I don’t know why that link won’t work. This link will take you to the forum thread I got the link from.

The link is in the first post.

Every older guy I’ve talked to/met who has middling-serious weight training and decent diet as part of his exercise program has, WITHOUT FAIL, looked 10-15 years younger than his chronological age. Sometimes more.

The benefits of weight training almost ridiculously outweigh the amount of effort you have to put into it.

Best insurance policy you can buy, in my opinion.

I don’t know about one day longer; but I am certain each day is better!
