The results from this study Once-weekly resistance exercise improves muscle strength and neuromuscular performance in older adults:
" A program of once or twice weekly resistance exercise achieves muscle strength gains similar to 3 days per week training in older adults and is associated with improved neuromuscular performance. Such improvement
could potentially reduce the risk of falls and fracture in older adults".
People of any age can become stronger, but it is the seniors who stand the most to gain. The personal training sessions conducted by the personal trainers at Kelly Personal Training in Austin and at Ultimate Fitness in New Orleans was derived from a study working with osteoporosis patients. Researchers found that joints hurt less, bone density increased and muscles were stronger and more toned with minimal time exercising. This type of personal training has been shown effective for men and women of all ages.
