The Doctors share a new study out of Penn State College of Medicine that found strength training could cut the risk of early death. The study followed 30,000 participants, 65 years plus, and looked at their exercise habits over 15 years. Nearly one-third of the participants died during the course of the study but of those who died, only 10% strength trained. The participants who did strength train were found 46% less likely to die than the others.
Additionally, the strength trainers had a 40% lower risk of cardiac death. "This is amazing," ER physician Dr. Travis Stork comments! Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra notes that strength training is especially important for women. Don't worry about bulking up, lifting weights is good for you!
Women lose bone density as they age, especially post-menopause, and lifting weights or doing other strength exercises can combat this. It also allows women to burn more calories throughout the day... now, who wouldn't want that?
