Strength training is a beneficial form of exercise for everybody no matter your age, gender, or fitness background. And no, it’s never too late and you are never too old to get started.

It’s important to know a few fundamental principles of strength training: 

  • Resistance: You have to apply an appropriate resistance to build muscle.  The amount of resistance should be above what one is accustomed to in everyday life.  Add this resistance by using weight lifting equipment, free weights, cable machines, various weighted tools or even your own bodyweight.
