  • I had never heard that expression - working to the point of failure. I like it! - 12/1/2015 8:59:01 AM
  • If you're going to go to the gym and use the equipment, MEET WITH A TRAINER. If your form is poor, or you're lifting too much weight, you can seriously injure yourself. - 11/30/2015 8:48:47 AM
  • I too need to watch out for this, heredity is wonderful. But i never knew resistance training would help. Thank you for the great article and the prayers. - 6/24/2015 10:56:38 AM
  • My mother AND dad both had osteoporosis. ME, I did not want to cough up my one inch above 5 feet. But it went anyway. Last April (14) I learned of a place where the personal training team of husband and wife, would guarantee they could help me build strenght, muscle and bone. Well, I cannot get over the difference it has made in my life. I will be leaving their care in February, but they are helping me set up a continued training program I can use at my regular gym. BLESS them both! At 70 I do not intend to loose one more inch! Can hardly wait to get my bone density done next year. I am anxious to see my improvement. - 11/25/2014 1:51:00 PM
  • Great article, just had the same talk with my doctor too. Also love the Term "pleasant soreness", that is the way it feels to me. I really love feeling the muscle soreness because it reminds me that I am doing good and something important for my body. Not so sore, I can't move, but I can feel my muscle's presence. Thanks for sharing !! - 10/15/2014 12:28:11 PM

  • Great article. Just the inspiration to get back to the fitness center for at least two days of strength training weekly. - 10/18/2013 6:12:05 AM
  • This article was not what I expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Great motivation for me to get started on some much-needed strength training before it's too late. Thank you! - 10/18/2013 12:04:36 AM
  • Interesting article, but the picture says How to Lift Your Way to Strong Bones. I expected a program for lifting geared toward seniors or beginners. - 10/8/2013 2:00:49 PM
