I was having breakfast with one of the clients here at PP yesterday and he shared with me some great insight into the mind of the older adult. It seems as if there is still a stigma around weight training in the older community. Weight training is the fountain of youth!
Fat loss is something that is pretty well understood but is muddied by all the BS out there from every Instagram model and “Advocare Health Expert” just trying to make a buck. As much as the “experts” on social media want you to believe that you need to do is some special workout to get the body you want, take a particular supplement or eat specific foods, they are wrong.
Strength training is great for all those reasons, but it is also great for fat loss. Once someone commits to a healthy lifestyle, focused on exercise and diet (which is always the first step, I can’t help you until you know you want to help yourself), the next hurdle is the program. How we get from where you are to where you want to be. For all my general fitness clients, I use a training structure that is simple to use and gets great results. Which we will spell out for you in this article.
