Strength training has numerous benefits for women over 50. How do we know? We have been strength training consistently for over 20 years now and this daily practice has been so important for every aspect of life. Today we want to share some very simple ideas on why this topic is so important for every woman to consider practicing in their daily life.
Firstly, it helps to prevent muscle loss, which is a common problem as we age. This is because our bodies naturally lose muscle mass over time, which leads to decreased strength and mobility. Strength training helps to slow down this process, by building and maintaining muscle mass.
Secondly, strength training can help to improve bone density, which is also a concern for women over 50, as they are more prone to osteoporosis. Regular strength training can increase bone density, making bones stronger and less prone to fractures.
Thirdly, strength training can help to improve balance and coordination, which can help to prevent falls and other injuries. This is especially important for women over 50, as they are more likely to suffer from falls and other accidents.
Finally, strength training can help to improve overall health and well-being, by reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. It can also help to improve mental health, by reducing stress and anxiety and improving mood and self-esteem.
Overall, strength training is an excellent way for women over 50 to maintain their health and fitness, and enjoy a better quality of life.
So if you're over 50, why not give it a try? You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it, and how much it can benefit your health and well-being.

“Research shows that regular walking actually modifies your nervous system so much that you’ll experience a decrease in anger and hostility,” she says, especially when you're going for a stroll through some greenery or soaking in a bit of sunlight. This can be particularly helpful during the colder months when seasonal depression spikes.
