The Weighting Game

If your gym solution is endless hours of cardio, here's why you should consider an exercise program that combines resistance and aerobic training


Aging frightens some women into the plastic surgeon’s office and others into the gym. As you get older, it’s natural to experience a decrease in muscle mass and an increase in fat mass associated with a reduction in growth hormone (GH). If your gym solution is endless hours of cardio, consider an exercise program that combines resistance and aerobic training. This mix has been found to be more effective at maintaining GH levels and improving body composition than aerobic training alone — even in postmenopausal women. This simply confirms a HERS maxim: The fountain of youth is full of dumbbells

  1. A few months ago I added lifting to my program, and couldn't be happier. I've made more progress using weights along with cardio than ever before; slowly I'm getting more confident along side the lifting crowd at the gym :)
