Success Secrets - Resistance Excercise

Scientists have discovered that resistance excercise can help reverse the effects of aging, right down to the cellular level.

Scientists in Canada suggest that twice weekly sessions of resistance exercise
training using standard gym equipment can reverse the signs of ageing in the
skeletal muscles of the over 65s.
14 of the old adults then completed a 26-week whole body resistance
exercise-training programme based on stretching and weight-bearing exercise on
gym equipment that involved 3 sets of 10 repetitions for each muscle group,
including for instance leg press, chest press, leg extension, leg flexion,
shoulder press, and lat pull-down.
Melov and his team found that the old adults improved their strength
significantly compared to the young adults
