@HammH Right: if we are going to live a long time, we probably should be aiming for mental acuity, functional capacity and physical strength. Go RBG! Smiley Happy

A snippet:

It can be a problem when older people lose muscle mass — it's called sarcopenia — or bone. But strength training offsets that process, allowing them to maintain or even gain muscle mass. Westcott's research has found that even people in their 90s can regain several pounds of muscle mass through training.

 

Two thumbs way up to RBG's workout! Smiley Happy

Love her or hate her, it's awesome that's she is into fitness at 84.   Smiley Happy

 

I hope I'm still doing half of that when I'm 84.
