Strength Training for Men over 50

By Andrea Cespedes

Whether you are a longtime exerciser or finally getting around to getting off the couch, strength training is an essential part of your fitness routine. A man over 50 doesn't necessarily have to approach strength training differently from other age groups. The strategy and frequency depends on your goals and current fitness level. Never use the excuse that you are too old to start. With dedication, men in their 50s who have not done any strength training previously can expect big results.
