  • Great article! It's funny and touching and so inspiring! Thank you! I've always been committed to running and walking - but I've always known I SHOULD add some weight/strengthening exercises to my routine. This article has inspired me to take action!
  • At first I didn't like the use of the word failure. I had always heard it called fatigue. But then I thought about your point - that not stopping and just pushing on through might lead to injury. And I got it. That in all things in life - there is a point when you need to stop and rest and try again later, or else you will fail and might injure yourself. Thanks for the invaluable tip.
  • Kudo's to you and this "Power House" article. Many years ago I was given the same information and doubted it but did it anyway(the source was reliable). They also suggested the calcium & vitamin D3 thing.
    It's all paid off! I'm 71 and can still handle a good amount of weight during my workouts (anywhere between 4 and 18 lbs) .
    Recent Dextra found ostiopina but nothing major and I'm able to keep up my workout "menu" : ) Life is good but its better when you LISTEN to the folks in the know. -shoreido-

    Good for you! I love you perspective.
  • I cried after reading this. Thank you.
    I love this article! It is very well written and thought provoking--and maybe, action provoking. Can't get any better than that!
  • I had never heard that expression - working to the point of failure. I like it!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 !!
  • nice glad u found the weight room. I love my weight lifting sessions..I am off to go do one now.......
    Very inspiring and humorous, too.
  • I love the idea of intercessory prayer while working out. Thanks for your comments.
