Improving Strength & Speed in Adults
It is a well-established fact that our strength and speed deteriorate as we age, and this is typically seen once we get into our 40s and 50s. Resistance training is recognized as an effective way to help prevent this deterioration.
High-repetition/low-load training programs, like Bodypump, can effectively improve strength and speed in middle-aged and older adults. Bodypump is an effective way to maintain our health as we age. Class participants age 55 and over saw an increase in leg strength, upper body strength, and gait speed. Gait speed is particularly important for this age group as it is a simple way to measure vitality as we age.
