Why Strength Training Is Life Saving over 40

One of the most common questions I get is about injury or pain or an existing condition that we believe is stopping you from exercise.
I hear it all the time, “I can’t train but I have a bad knee, shoulder, wrist or I have back issues or in pain.” And I get it.
But I also hear, I’m not fit enough for working out or strong enough for strength training too.
So what is the answer?
Firstly, it is simple.  If your doctor or physio has passed you to exercise, then the rest is just about finding your own way to do it from modifications, your starting point, how much exercise to do, using what tool and of course prehab, mobility and rehab work.
  • Strength training in relation to injury
  • It can be just an excuse and the one thing that stopping you to get what you want. To get fitter and stronger, you have to train.
  • Why older adult (over 40+) whose strength train at least 2 times a week had 46% lower odds of death for any reason, 5% lower odds of cardiac death, and 19% lower odds of dying from cancer
  • What to do if you get injured. We have discussed this as well in our podcast here:  You Can’t be Motivated if you are Sick, Tired or in Pain
  • Why we aim for progress, not perfection
Can you see how important your MINDSET and beliefs are in any body shape and lifestyle change program, heck in ANY goal you want to achieve.

Could it simply be your FEAR that is stopping you from achieving your Body Shape Change and Lifestyle goals?
