This comprehensive, science-backed book explores three core strategies for improving overall fitness and health: getting stronger, improving balance, and increasing energy.
It’s complete nonsense that older adults can’t become stronger. This book explores the data-driven reasons why we can build strength despite our age. It will also provide practical ways to get stronger at home, offering simple at-home exercises and nutritional advice.
Balance is improved when greater overall strength is achieved. Therefore a “full body” approach to exercise is vital to not just keep us from falling and injuring ourselves but to help us develop the confidence that we can do more with our lives! It’s time to take control.
It’s scientifically proven that we can significantly increase our energy through strength and conditioning training. Add proper nutrition to the equation and you will have a complete solution for more energy and a healthier life. This book explores both.
Evidence-based Resistance Exercises
”One amazing thing about skeletal muscle is its plasticity. Age doesn’t matter, if you engage and commit to resistance exercise, your muscle will adapt in healthy ways. This book is novel because it highlights evidence-based benefits of resistance exercise for older populations and provides easy-to-follow exercise routines. Matthew highlights that it is never too late to start which is a message we should share with our loved ones.”
