Strength Train for Functional Fitness

                  When your doctor tells you that you should exercise about 30 minutes almost everyday, most people think about walking, jogging, or maybe some treadmill work. One aspect of exercise that is frequently overlooked is strength or resistance training. You need strength training in order to maintain the ability to perform everyday tasks (hence the functional fitness part) and to remain independent for as long as possible.

                  The average 30 year old will lose a quarter of his/her muscle strength by age 70 and half of their strength by age 90. Doctors agree that just doing aerobic exercise is not enough. Without strength training, you are destined to become weaker and less functional.
