It’s often thought that older adults must tolerate the strength and muscle loss that come with age. But analyses of current research by University of Michigan scientists reveal that not only can we fight the battle of strength and muscle loss as we age, we can even build muscle and strength well into our Golden Years.

    I'm 62, I surf (up to a little overhead) and just placed 2nd overall in Costa Rica Nationals volleyball doubles. No need to stop!

    Honestly when I was in Korea and Taiwan and I was seeing seniors race past me as they climbed up mountains and crouching down/kneeling in a sustained way, I knew that the approach to physical fitness that most people who are elderly/golden years in Canada was NOT the way to go. I am now 34 and I am realizing that I NEED to get physically fit now, as it will be easier the younger I start.
