Strong women stay young

Nelson, Miriam E. (Author). Wernick, Sarah. (Added Author).

Summary: Miriam E. Nelson's research created news worldwide when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After a year of strength training twice a week, women's bodies were 15 to 20 years more youthful. Without drugs, they regained bone, helping to prevent osteoporosis. They became stronger - in most cases even stronger than when they were young. Their balance and flexibility improved. They were leaner and trimmer, without changing what they ate. What's more, the women were so energized, they became 27 percent more active. No other program - whether diet, medication, or aerobic exercise - has ever achieved comparable results.
