Strong the Strand Way!

Strong muscles and bones keep you moving with confidence!

By far, keeping their body strong, injury-free, and moving as they age is the number one goal of our personal training clients.  Taking off a few pounds is also important, but strength is most important.  While they might not use these words, I believe they are creating a “personal asset” that will enable their lives.  Toning and achieving a lean body is nice (and a benefit of strength training), but having strength to move through life the way you want is more deeply satisfying!

Make quality of life a strength training priority

The reason I believe our clients are so successful at building strength is they connect strength with quality of life.  As goal-oriented individuals, our clients enjoy seeing their progression in lifting heavier weight and performing more complex moves.  But they are far more focused on how their progress in the gym translates to their life outside of the gym.  They want to take their strength to work, back home, and into their every day activities.  Being strong also helps them maintain their health (especially bone and joint health).  They know strong bodies stay young, healthy, and mobile.

Work on improving how your body moves

At Strand Fitness, strength training is about improving how your body moves and responds to the demands of your daily life.  Many of us arrive in mid-life with bodies filled with compensations from poor posture and muscle weaknesses + imbalances.  At this age, we probably also have an ailing joint or two.  Strength training at this point in our lives should first be about improving posture, balance and movement patterns, while maintaining joint health.  Then we can concentrate on further strengthening our muscles and bones to accomplish even greater things. 

Respect your body and its energy levels

Even though we are getting older, we can still get stronger.  And we can still exercise vigorously to acquire strength.  But it is important to acknowledge that it takes longer for our bodies to recover from strenuous exercise.  In addition to lifting the weights, we will get better and more sustainable results if we also incorporate rest and recovery into our workout plans.  Spending time on low impact movements to improve the range of motion in our joints is an essential part of long term success.  Releasing muscle tension through massage and regular stretching are also examples of resting and rejuvenating the body. Being sure to eat healthy foods will also aid in the strength building process!
